GreenBytes on the lookout for displaced Data Domain resellers

Sue Troy Sue Troy Profile: Sue Troy

We held a briefing with startup GreenBytes last week about their new GB-X storage systems. As Dave Raffo from explains, the product does inline deduplication of block storage and files. GreenBytes is looking to recruit resellers specializing in either primary or secondary storage. It says the GB-X systems can compete in dedupe against Data Domain and ExaGrid, in archiving dedupe against Permabit and NEC HydraStor and in primary storage compression against Storwize and Ocarina. GreenBytes CEO Bob Petrocelli also said that the GB-X is a good option for Data Domain resellers displaced by the EMC acquisition.

That leads to a question for Data Domain resellers, both those with an existing EMC relationship and those without one: How’ve you fared with the new corporate structure at EMC? Have you seen or do you expect any changes coming down the line? And does a product like GreenBytes’ have appeal as an alternative to Data Domain? Email me at
