New Software Platform Solves Storage Management Challenges, Creates Value Added Partner Services for Design, Deployment, Operations and Optimization

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2015) - PernixData, the leader in storage optimization, today announced that the company's new Architect software platform has been recognized by CRN as the winner of the virtualization category in the 2015 Tech Innovator awards. This is the ninth distinction given to PernixData by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel, highlighting the company's continued ability to deliver "channel friendly" products that set the standard for storage innovation. 

"Our first product, FVP, set a record for first year sales by delivering an easy to deploy scale-out solution for optimizing storage performance that complements every server or storage platform sold by our partners," said Kristin Carnes, vice president of channel sales at PernixData. "Based on early numbers, Architect is on pace to do even better! That is because Architect lets our partners engage their customers with data driven conversations about their storage and virtualization environments, providing unprecedented visibility and control. With both FVP and Architect in their portfolios, PernixData partners have the perfect one-two punch for solving real customer pain points with very short sales cycles."

"PernixData Architect provides a visionary view of data center management that allows companies to collect information throughout their data centers for a clear view into applications and storage," said Paul Markel, SVP strategic accounts at Trace3. "IT administrators are able to gain perspective into their entire IT lifecycles, find the most relevant data and insights, and make the best decisions by having the most accurate and pertinent information right in front of them. Because the solution ensures project success, provides proactive data center management and full IT lifecycle management, we confidently recommend PernixData Architect to any business that wants straightforward storage management."
