Astute Networks ViSX Performance Storage Appliances Certified With DataCore Storage Virtualization and Business Continuity Solutions

Astute and DataCore Address Common Storage Challenges to Deliver Unparalleled Performance and Availability for Virtualized Environments

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Feb 25, 2013) - VMware Partner Exchange 2013 -- Astute Networks™, Inc., the leading provider of performance storage appliances, today announced that Astute ViSX has been certified by DataCore Software as a "DataCore Ready" solution which has been validated for optimum use with DataCore SANsymphony-V Storage Hypervisor-based infrastructures. Together, the companies deliver unparalleled storage performance and availability for virtualized environments.

"Astute's ViSX solid state storage appliances offer incredible performance and are one of the most cost effective ways to dramatically increase application performance," said Carlos Carreras, vice president of alliances and business development, DataCore. "Combined DataCore and Astute customers benefit from a flexible storage infrastructure that is capable of dynamically tiering and migrating workloads and data without downtime. We are excited to add Astute ViSX to our expanding list of 'DataCore Ready' solution providers."

DataCore and Astute solutions work together to optimize the performance and availability of virtualized infrastructures. DataCore Nodes provide storage virtualization functionality, including caching, thin provisioning, snapshots, replication and continuous data protection of virtual volumes. Astute breaks application performance barriers by resolving critical I/O bottlenecks with the ViSX family of solid state (SSD) flash-based Performance Storage Appliances. The joint solution is ideal for cost-constrained multi-vendor IT organizations deploying desktop and server virtualization with a need for a disaster recovery and business continuity solution.

"DataCore delivers sophisticated storage virtualization technologies to overcome device-specific differences and limitations so that customers may experience non-stop, lightning-fast storage infrastructure," said Len Rosenthal, senior vice president of marketing, Astute Networks. "When paired with our ViSX performance storage appliances, the DataCore SANsymphony-V solution simplifies overall management, increases data availability, and cost-optimizes the entire virtual and physical infrastructure."

The DataCore Ready Program
The DataCore Ready program identifies solutions that are trusted to enhance DataCore SANsymphony-V Storage Hypervisor-based infrastructures. While DataCore solutions interoperate with common open & industry standard products, those listed as DataCore Ready have completed additional verification testing to ensure a superior level of joint solution compatibility. Only third party products that successfully meet the verification criteria set by DataCore are qualified as DataCore Ready.

The DataCore Ready program is designed for software vendors, hardware vendors, hosting service providers and cloud technology firms who have demonstrated product and solution compatibility with DataCore products. The DataCore Ready logo helps customers quickly identify DataCore partner's products and solutions that are tested and optimized for DataCore SANsymphony-V.

DataCore and Astute will be at the VMware Partner Exchange conference in Las Vegas on February 25-28. Please visit Astute at booth #503.
