Astute Networks to Join IT Leaders at CIOsynergy to Discuss Benefits of Networked Flash to Accelerate Application Performance for the Virtual Data Center

CIOs to Learn How to Improve Critical Application Performance by 10x -- While Reducing Management Complexity and Costs at CIOsynergy San Francisco

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 26, 2013) - Astute Networks, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash™ appliances, today announced it will join with the over 100 Who's Who of San Francisco Bay Area IT leaders to discuss how IT transformation, consumption and management will drive change and innovation over the next five years, during the upcoming CIOsynergy event taking place December 5.

Described as the "ultimate roadmap for the office of the CIO" Astute Networks' Ted Lesinsky, Vice President of Sales, will add his perspective on flash storage's relevance in the data centers of today and into the future to the discussion, including its unparalled performance capabilities, as well as the growing realization that flash is as cost effective (if not more so) than traditional spinning disk.

"We are honored to join with such well-known and highly respected IT leaders as those attending CIOsynergy to talk about the business and IT requirements that are driving the future of technology innovation," said Lesinsky. "It presents an ideal opportunity to explore how the debate is shifting from a 'flash vs. disk' to a 'flash and disk' strategy discussion, as the industry becomes aware that the cost for flash in a high-performance required environment is less than that of spinning disk. Whereas, disk is still a great choice for non-business critical environments."

During the event, Astute Networks will highlight its all-flash ViSX solid-state storage (SSD) appliance, which delivers an up to 10x increase in performance, as well as enhanced management simplicity, scalability, and reliability, over traditional storage, making it the ideal solution for today's mission-critical application environments, be it physical, virtual or cloud.
