Payworks Speeds Cloud Applications by 300x With PernixData FVP™ Software, HP Storage and Intel Flash

New Storage Architecture Ensures Fast and Reliable Access to Workforce Data; Lays Foundation for More Virtualization in Future

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2015) - PernixData, the leader in server-side storage intelligence, announced today that Payworks, a Canadian-owned leader in the field of total workforce management solutions, has selected PernixData FVP™ software to optimize the performance of their web server cluster running the company's Payroll, Human Resources, and Employee Time Management solutions. By deploying FVP software with HP servers and storage and Intel flash, the company reduced their application latency for its cloud applications to under 1ms, ensuring that customers always receive quick and easy access to their data from anywhere in the world.

"PernixData FVP software is a natural fit for our environment, delivering immediate web performance gains with no changes to our storage infrastructure," said Bob Haldane, Infrastructure Manager at Payworks. "There is no better way to cost effectively add storage performance independent of buying more storage capacity."

PernixData FVP software clusters flash and RAM across servers to accelerate reads and writes to shared storage. By putting storage intelligence into servers, PernixData FVP lets you decouple storage performance from capacity for faster virtualized applications, lower storage costs, and storage performance that scales-out linearly with computing resources.

"The FVP software was installed in a matter of minutes with our HP BL460 Gen 8/9 blade servers, Intel S3700 SSDs and HP storage platform," said Haldane. "While we are thrilled with the performance FVP delivers, the ease of installation with zero downtime was the clincher for us. Plus, FVP lays a foundation for future application growth, enabling us to deploy more virtual machines and virtual databases without worrying about storage performance bottlenecks."
