Large Online Electronics Retailer Selects Violin Memory Flash Storage Platform™ for Management of Business-Critical Tier 1 and Tier 2 Workloads

Retailer Cites Performance, Data Protection, Reliability, and Zero Data Loss as Key Factors in Company's Decision to Expand Violin Memory Storage Deployment

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - October 30, 2015) - Violin Memory®, Inc., (NYSE: VMEM) a global pioneer of award-winning all flash storage platform solutions for primary storage and active workloads, today announced that a major online retailer of consumer electronics has deployed the Violin 7300 Flash Storage Platform™ (FSP) to improve its online transaction processing (OLTP), critical to maintaining rapid, reliable and secure responsiveness to its customers worldwide.

The retailer initially acquired Violin All-Flash array systems to power its back-end and disaster recovery operations. The newest 7300 FSP deployment marks the second phase in the retailer's objective to leverage the economic advantages of implementing Violin's FSP in its enterprise operations to support tier 1 and tier 2 primary storage workloads.

"This extension of our partnership with Violin highlights the overwhelming improvements in performance and availability we saw in our initial deployment of Violin All Flash arrays," said a representative for the retailer. "We had already sold ourselves on all-flash as the driver for improving our storage operations, and a critical component in our program to deliver ever-greater customer responsiveness. In this new deployment of Violin's 7300 FSP, we once again have achieved enterprise-class performance, uptime and data protection, while also benefitting from a suite of native services that the Violin platform delivers but are missing in competitive offerings."

"Although storage performance is often cited as a key to maintaining technology leadership in a fiercely competitive world where transaction processing is forever in the spotlight, this customer's buying decision hinged on a mix of performance, reliability, availability, and data protection -- and for demanding tier 1 workloads," said Kevin DeNuccio, president and chief executive officer, Violin Memory. "Our customer mirrors thousands of enterprises in its need for storage without compromises -- which is increasingly favoring Violin as the de facto standard for enterprise storage."

The Violin FSP represents the ultimate enterprise storage solution, and helps IT and storage professionals to drive competitive and economic advantages within their companies and by doing so find themselves being truly instrumental to the success of their companies.
