CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct.15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Permabit Technology Corporation, the industry leader in data reduction technology, today announced thinkASG, a leading provider of IT consulting and solutions in Southern California , has joined the company's partner network of solution providers, value-added resellers, and distributors, bringing Permabit's Albireo SANblox™ appliance to the IT marketplace.

thinkASG  focuses on building long-term relationships with its clients and has over 20 years of experience helping clients execute business-critical tasks, manage and get the most value from business data, and adapt to new technology opportunities, such as cloud.

SANblox is a unique data reduction appliance for Fibre Channel-attached storage that pairs Permabit's industry-leading deduplication index with its best in class HIOPS Compression™ technology. It delivers immediate data reduction for flash, hybrid or HDD storage products across a wide range of applications, including virtual server, VDI, copy data, database (OLTP and data warehouse), analytics and Big Data environments.

SANblox can be deployed in a matter of hours for immediate storage savings in all-flash, hybrid, or HDD environments. With inline data reduction, storage savings from deduplication and compression are realized immediately while increasing effective capacity and reducing costs. SANblox deployment flexibility also enables selective use of deduplication and/or compression on data stores, enabling users to choose the data reduction techniques that best meet their needs.

"thinkASG excels at guiding customers through the changing storage marketplace, and Permabit's data reduction technology helps by enabling high performance, high capacity storage at dramatically reduced TCO," said Scott Skidmore, Permabit VP of Sales. "We are thrilled to welcome thinkASG to Permabit's reseller and distributor network and are fully committed to their success."

"SANblox allows us to immediately deliver the industry's highest performing, most scalable and lowest footprint data reduction to our clients with Fibre Channel SAN environments," said David Browning, CEO, thinkASG. "Our clients who incorporate SANblox within their hybrid, disk and flash storage arrays can immediately increase their storage capacity and reduce their operating costs, with little to no impact on performance and minimal change to their existing environments."

"Simply put, SANblox is a true data reduction appliance, easy to set up and very quick time to value for our customers," said Tony Roberts, Senior Solutions Architect, thinkASG.  "Putting these in our designs adds flexibility and modern data reduction technology that works in heterogeneous environments."
