Astute Networks to Showcase ViSX Flash-Based Performance Storage Appliance at VMware User Group Conferences

Astute Purpose-Built Appliances Increase Virtualized Application and Virtual Desktop Performance by up to 10X

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - Astute Networks™, Inc., the leading provider of performance storage appliances, today announced that it will be demonstrating its ViSX Networked Flash™ storage system during upcoming VMware User Group (VMUG) meetings in San Diego, CA on April 30, Santa Clara, CA on May 1, Madison, WI on May 2, Seattle, WA on May 13, and Philadelphia, PA on May 23.

Astute breaks virtualization application performance barriers by resolving critical I/O bottlenecks with the ViSX flash-based Performance Storage Appliances. Based on its 10GbE DataPump Engine™ and Networked Flash™ architecture, ViSX gives virtual server managers a simple to deploy storage I/O acceleration appliance that boosts virtualized database and VDI performance up to 10X in a matter of minutes. Astute customers improve employee 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.

"Flash-based storage systems offer clear and significant performance benefits over traditional hard disk drive (HDD) storage systems, but have been cost prohibitive for many enterprises," said Len Rosenthal, senior vice president of marketing, Astute. "Our ViSX all flash storage appliance is the most cost-effective, simplest, and least disruptive way to deploy solid state flash storage to instantaneously eliminate I/O performance barriers associated with virtualized applications and virtual desktops."

The VMware User Group (VMUG) is an independent, global, customer-led organization, created to maximize members' use of VMware and partner solutions through knowledge sharing, training, collaboration, and events. Registration for VMUG conferences is open and included as part of member benefits for all VMUG members. For more information about the VMUG User Conferences, visit:
