PernixData FVP™ Is First Winner of "Bright Idea Impact Award" From Modern Infrastructure Magazine

Latest Honor From TechTarget Complements Long List of Accolades for PernixData in 2013

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2013) -  PernixData, the leader in virtualizing server flash, today announced that the company's flagship product, PernixData FVP™, was named the winner in the first annual Modern Infrastructure Bright Idea Impact Award. Sponsored by TechTarget, this award recognizes an emerging technology concept or product with the potential to shake up data center operations. PernixData FVP was selected as the winning product by Modern Infrastructure readers and a panel of expert judges.

FVP software virtualizes all server side flash into a clustered acceleration tier that enables IT administrators to quickly, easily and cost-effectively scale-out storage performance completely independent of storage capacity. The result is unprecedented read and write performance for all virtual machines (VMs), without the need to change existing server and storage infrastructure. With flash storage virtualization, PernixData fundamentally changes how storage is designed and operated in virtual data centers. 

Below are quotes submitted by Modern Infrastructure readers regarding the PernixData solution:

  • "PernixData FVP is an original and slick solution to the age-old problem of IO bottlenecks."

  • "The beauty of this idea is that virtualization administrators can scale IOPS performance independently of storage capacity, using readily available server-side flash resources."

  • "Decoupling performance from capacity is a logical step to make and prepares us for a creating deterministic performance layer."

  • "[FVP] provides an immediate boost to performance with very little change to the environment. No vSphere Storage Appliance, no middleware, no IO tuning, huge hardware compatibility list."

  • "[I] haven't seen a more complete execution of the product vision in many years. They solved some of the hardest problems known in the virtualization space -- hypervisor-based, clustering, non-disruptive acceleration, write acceleration with fault tolerance -- and did it in their 1.0 product."

Since launching FVP in August 2013, PernixData has been awarded several key industry distinctions, including 'Editors Choice' by InfoWorld's Test Center, two 'Best New Product' awards at VMworld 2013, 'Coolest Emerging Tech Vendor' by CRN Magazine, and "Top 10 Coolest Storage Companies" by CRN.

"We are honored that PernixData continues to be recognized for having a hot product that changes the way companies design storage," said Jeff Aaron, vice president of marketing at PernixData. "In many of these instances, FVP has been chosen over exciting solutions that span the storage, networking, cloud, and virtualization spaces. This underscores the fact that FVP is not only the de facto standard for storage performance, but it is a core infrastructure element for any virtual data center."
