Summary:
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.
