Imation Acquires Data Deduplication Engine from Nine Technology

Imation Corp. (owner of Iroken secure USB solution), a leading global technology company dedicated to helping people and organizations store, protect and connect their digital world, today announced it has acquired intellectual property and other assets, including key data deduplication technology, from Nine Technology. This data deduplication software engine eliminates redundant data, enabling shorter backup windows, quicker recovery, lower infrastructure costs and more robust and reliable data protection. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Nine Technology will continue to operate as a standalone service provider of data protection offerings and be a strategic partner for Imation.


“Imation’s acquisition of this important data deduplication technology is another major step in our scalable storage growth strategy,” said Ian Williams, Imation vice president, global marketing and product management. “We chose to acquire this technology because we recognize the power of block-level deduplication. This will be one of the key differentiating features of Imation’s data protection portfolio for small and medium businesses (SMBs).”
