PernixData FVP™ Wins InfoWorld's 2014 Technology of the Year Award

Flash Hypervisor Recognized for Unique Approach to Accelerating Virtualized Applications by Eliminating Storage Bottlenecks

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - PernixData, the leader in virtualizing server flash, today announced that the company's flagship product, PernixData FVP™, is a winner of IDG's prestigious InfoWorld 2014 Technology of the Year Award. Hand-selected by InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers, the annual awards identify the best and most innovative products on the IT landscape.

"InfoWorld's Technology of the Year Award winners are the best products we know, but they're more than great products," said Doug Dineley, executive editor of InfoWorld's Test Center. "These are the tools that point the way to the data centers, clouds, and applications of tomorrow. They're the innovations that are changing the way we work and do business."

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.
