Lortu announces technologies for Deduplication, WAFS and WAN Optimization.


Bilbao, Spain, December 18, 2006 – Lortu Software S.L., a leading provider of Byte-level Delta Deduplication Technology, announced today the public release of new components based on Kondar technology for implementing Deduplication, replication, WAFS and WAN Optimization products.

Deduplication (sometimes called Single-Instance Storage, Capacity Optimization or Factoring) is a data reduction technology intended to eliminate redundant (duplicate) data on a storage system by saving only one instance of each piece of data in order to reduce disk space and network bandwidth.

When evaluating a deduplication product, it’s important to understand the granularity offered by their platform: file level, block level or byte level.

Kondar deduplication technology.
Basically Kondar deduplication technology is able to compare two blocks of data and find the differences between them at byte level. The main feature of Kondar is that it’s able to do this deduplication process with very large blocks of data, at byte level and very fast.

“Based on our philosophy of developing software components to be integrated into third party companies’ software or hardware products, Kondar is not a final product or a closed component.” said Carlos Ardanza, CEO of Lortu Software. “Instead, Kondar is a technology that can provide the API that best suits our clients’ products. Even more, we can fine-tune our technology in order to get the best performance and easiest integration with your products.”

Kondar is data-format independent and can work with any kind of data: files, memory buffers, disk images or data in streaming mode.

Thanks to its byte level deduplication algorithms, Kondar can be used to achieve a data reduction ratio of between 10 and 100 times.

“For companies interested in implementing deduplication technology in hardware, Kondar algorithms have been especially designed to be implemented in FPGA, ASIC or proprietary multi-processor hardware where our clients can take advantage of their parallelism and multithreading capabilities, providing a great throughput and scalability grade.” explains Alejandro Arostegui, Sales Manager of Lortu Software.
