Astute Networks to Feature ViSX All-Flash Storage Appliance at Ft Belvoir Expo

Defense and Civilian IT Professionals, Procurement Representatives and Acquisition Personnel to See Firsthand How VISX Meets Need for Fast, Accurate and Secure Data Access

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 19, 2014) - Astute Networks, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flashappliances, today announced it will join together with hundreds of Defense and Civilian IT professionals, procurement representatives and acquisition personnel to discuss the industry developments driving the future of data center strategy, at next week's Ft Belvoir Expo, taking place in Washington, DC, on February 27. During the conference, Astute Networks will also showcase its ViSX all-flash solid state (SSD) storage appliance, which offers the ideal solution for significantly accelerating application performance, as well as ensuring the security, availability and reliability of data.

IT Managers and operations personnel across virtually every industry vertical and government agency alike depend on the ViSX all-flash storage appliance to deliver unprecedented performance at prices normally associated with spinning disk. In doing so, its users are able to unleash the full potential of their organization, whether they are addressing mission critical application performance issues, deploying a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), or virtualizing an application environment. 

Recently, a US Air Force base faced a mandate to implement a virtual desktop environment (VDI). A phased approach to the deployment was planned, starting with its top 100 critical users. The goal was to ensure users would not experience any data access interruption, and once deployed would be able to access applications and information at unprecedented speeds. Moreover, the new infrastructure needed to be able to withstand heavy user demand during boot-up and peak demand periods, and easily scale as numerous users would be added. Of course, the solution needed to fit within its stringent budgetary parameters. After rigorous investigation and testing, the Astute Networks ViSX was selected. Once proven, the ViSX was configured for production in less than 30 minutes. Its benefits to date have included accelerated and predictable VDI performance, increased user productivity and satisfaction, the ability to easily scale as required, and a 98% reduction across data center environmentals (i.e., power and cooling). 

"The ability to quickly, accurately and securely access and share data is clearly a critical requirement for government agencies," said Jeff Whitney, Vice President of Marketing, Astute Networks. "Field proven across the public and private sector alike, the Astute Networks ViSX enables its users to achieve unparalleled application performance at unprecedented price points, across physical, virtual and cloud environments."

Astute Networks ViSX all-flash SSD appliance will be featured in the Refreshment Section during the Ft Belvoir Expo.
