PernixData FVP is the premier platform for storage acceleration. This revolutionary software virtualizes server flash and RAM 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 FVP, PernixData fundamentally changes how storage is designed and operated in virtual data centers.

Since FVP's launch in August 2013, PernixData has earned over a dozen industry accolades, including two Best of VMworld awards, Infoworld Product of the Year, and inclusion in Forbes 2014 list of Most Promising Companies. Today, PernixData raised the bar with new groundbreaking FVP features, which are highlighted in the accompanying release titled PernixData Introduces New FVP Features to Accelerate Any VM, on Any Host, with Any Shared Storage System.

"We believe PernixData's inclusion in the latest Cool Vendors in Storage report speaks to the innovative nature of our product and exceptional value proposition to storage and virtualization administrators," said Jeff Aaron, vice president of marketing at PernixData. "In a short period of time, we feel our software has become the de facto standard for server side storage acceleration, delivering a true enterprise class platform that decouples storage performance from capacity for maximum application and storage performance with minimal IT costs."
