Astute Networks Named a "10 Hot Tech Startup" by Everything Channel's CRN Magazine

Leading Networked Performance Flash Provider for Virtual Desktop and Server Environments Capitalizes on Multi-Billion Market Opportunity

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2012) - Astute Networks™, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Performance Flash™ solutions for accelerating virtualized server, desktop, and cloud computing environments, today announced that Everything Channel's CRN Magazine has named the company one of "10 Hot Tech Startups for June 2012."

CRN notes that "the pace of innovation never lets up, as seen from the June crop of hot emerging tech startups. Each one offers a new product or service, and some are raking in handsome venture funding to do it." Astute Networks was the only performance flash company to be named to the top 10 list and one of six companies that has recently received venture funding, banking $12M led by Samsung Venture Investment Corporation.

In 2012 alone, more than 60 million virtual machines will experience poor application performance and user productivity as a result of storage and I/O constraints. Astute Networks' patented DataPump Engine™ and Networked Performance Flash architecture eliminate these performance robbing bottlenecks to deliver high performance with a dedicated performance datastore tier, that significantly accelerate virtual machine and application performance for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, and Red Hat RHEV virtualization platforms.

"Being named to CRN's 10 Hot Tech Startups list on the heels of our recent financing round is a great validation that our Networked Performance Flash solutions are addressing the performance and cost barriers that plague virtualized infrastructure," said Steve Topper, CEO of Astute Networks. "Our ViSX appliances give customers game changing efficiencies that enable more tier one applications to be virtualized with confidence in sustained performance while eliminating costly overprovisioning and I/O bottlenecks."
