Arkeia Software Acquires Kadena Systems for Patented Next-Generation Data Deduplication

Source-side deduplication Accelerates backups by reducing network congestion

According to Gartner, virtual desktops will be popularized in 2010, and by 2013 spending on virtual desktop environments will reach $65.7 billion annually-nearly a 40 percent share of the overall desktop market. As virtual desktops become more prevalent, Systems Administrators will finally have the ability to backup these highly redundant desktops. In these environments, source-side data deduplication can deliver a dramatic reduction in requirements for storage and network bandwidth.

Source-side deduplication can be deployed within the guest OS or take advantage of hypervisor-specific storage APIs, such as VMware's vStorage (VCB) and Microsoft Hyper-V VSS. If the virtual environment uses SAN storage, deduplicated backups of virtual environments will not have to traverse the LAN, resulting in speedier backups and shortened backup windows. In environments without SAN, System Administrators can further increase performance by deploying the Arkeia Virtual Appliance and limiting traffic to within the VLAN.

Kadena Systems CTO, Tamir Ram, Joins Arkeia

Tamir Ram, previously CTO at Kadena Systems, will join Arkeia Software as Chief Architect. Ram comes to Arkeia with deep technical expertise in storage including technical leadership roles at storage leaders VERITAS (now Symantec), NetFrame and Auspex Systems. Ram also served as the original engineering team leader at Data Domain. He has been awarded several patents in data protection and networking.
