  • (1888PressRelease) June 07, 2013 - CHICAGO, IL -- Storage Decisions -- Astute Networks™, Inc., the leading provider of performance storage appliances, today announced that it will be demonstrating its ViSX flash storage appliance at Storage Decisions Chicago, June 11-12 at booth #23. Astute Networks' Senior Vice President of Marketing, Len Rosenthal will also be presenting at a Sponsor Showcase session called "Ending Storage Bottlenecks: Exploiting Flash without Disrupting Your Production Environment" at 11:55 a.m. on June 12.

    Astute breaks application performance barriers by resolving critical I/O bottlenecks with the ViSX flash-based Performance Storage Appliances for physical and virtual environments. Based on its 10GbE DataPump Engine™ and Networked Flash™ architecture, ViSX gives IT managers a simple to deploy storage I/O acceleration appliance that boosts application and VDI performance up to 10X in a matter of minutes. Companies improve user productivity, customer satisfaction and revenue generation while eliminating the over-provisioning of storage, servers, and network resources. ViSX co-exists with installed storage and delivers 100% flash performance in a non-disruptive, simple to deploy solution, at prices comparable to disk-based systems.

    Storage professionals are under constant pressure to ensure that end-users are satisfied with the performance of their applications and the virtual and physical infrastructure that underpins them. Deploying flash-based storage is an obvious solution, but it can be expensive and very disruptive to deploy. Astute's Senior Vice President of Marketing, Len Rosenthal will discuss a new approach that enables a simple, non-disruptive deployment of flash storage that delivers an immediate 10X application performance increase and co-exists with your existing IT environment.

    ViSX offers the lowest $ per IOPS and the lowest cost per GB of any iSCSI-based flash storage solution due to its patented DataPump Engine, which offloads TCP and iSCSI network processing. The DataPump Engine gives ViSX the 3-5X performance advantage over all of its flash and hybrid disk/flash competitors that offer iSCSI-based storage solutions.

    "The transition from hard disk based storage arrays to higher performance solid state flash storage is accelerating now that the price differences have been practically eliminated," said Len Rosenthal. "Flash-based solutions help solve I/O performance limitations, but they can be costly and users often find it difficult to circumvent the differences between the numerous flash options in the market. During Storage Decisions, I will share how to break down the different classes of flash solutions to help users select the best alternatives for their environment in order to realize the full performance potential of their virtual and physical applications."
