Permabit Awarded Two De-Dupe Patents

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Permabit Technology Corporation, the industrys leading innovator of scalable, data-reduced storage for enterprise archiving, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted the company two new patents for its massively scalable data deduplication technologies. These new patents protect the company’s scalable data reduction (SDR) technology, which is integrated into its Enterprise Archive Data Center Series product.

U.S. Patents 7,412,462 and 7,398,283 broadly cover the use of hash-based deduplication for scalable file and object data storage with access control credentials. These patents also protect Permabit’s unique encrypted deduplication, snapshot, and many other features of the company’s SDR technology.

“Permabit developed core technology and filed these patents more than eight years ago, long before deduplication of data in storage systems was widely understood to be critical to the future of large-scale data storage,” said Jered Floyd, chief technology officer at Permabit. “We realized early on the importance of using advanced technology to shrink the storage footprint and thus reduce the cost of archive data. We’ve implemented this deduplication technology in a product that is second to none in its ability to scale in capacity, and reliabily protect and cost-effectively maintain data for large enterprises over the long term.”
