Permabit CEO to Present at Needham HDD/Flash Memory Conference

Tom Cook, CEO of Permabit Technology Corporation, the recognized leader in data efficiency technology, will present to attendees of the 7th annual Needham HDD/Flash Memory & Systems Conference November 6 at 2:30 p.m. EST at the Langham Hotel in Boston.

The Needham HDD & Flash Memory Systems Conference will look at the successes and changes occurring with the traditional hard-disk and flash-based storage industries with Cook discussing how storage efficiency technologies, such as compression, replication, deduplication and thin provisioning are changing the overall storage landscape by enabling vendors to maximize performance, ensure reliability and manage scalability of their product offerings. Attendees of the conference include qualified institutional investors and venture capital firms.

“Data efficiency technologies are a must-have for all-flash and hybrid (flash and HDD) storage offerings,” said Cook. “They make flash a cost effective solution and accelerate market adoption. I look forward to sharing with attendees of the Needham HDD/Flash Memory & Systems Conference how Albireo high-performance deduplication and compression is helping our partners win business and save their enterprise customers more than $1 billion in 2013.”
