PernixData Named Finalist for Best New Technology at VMworld 2013

PernixData FVP™, the First Flash Hypervisor, Re-Defines Storage With True Scale Out Performance Using Server Side Flash

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2013) - PernixData, the leader in virtualizing server flash, today announced that PernixData FVP™ was named a finalist in the "New Technology" category of the Best of VMworld 2013 Awards hosted by TechTarget's SearchServerVirtualization.com™.

A team of independent judges comprising experts and editors from SearchServerVirtualization.com reviewed and evaluated more than 200 products in nine categories. Products were judged according to innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.

"We are honored that our PernixData FVP software was recognized as a hot new virtualization technology that is shaking up the storage world," said Jeff Aaron, vice president of marketing at PernixData. "While other vendors offer point products that deliver modest storage performance gains for a limited number of use cases, PernixData FVP provides a true clustered solution that seamlessly benefits all virtualized applications. This makes PernixData's software a key infrastructure element of any virtualized data center."

PernixData FVP fundamentally changes how storage is designed and operated in virtual data centers. Unique PernixData FVP features include:

  • Scale-out performance independent of storage capacity: With PernixData FVP, increased storage performance is as simple as clustering more server side flash. Performance can be architected based on specific VMs or application requirements, rather than being exclusively tied to data store requirements.

  • Seamless deployment: The PernixData FVP technology leverages the investment in infrastructure that companies already have in place. The software is deployed in less than 20 minutes within the hypervisor kernel, with no changes (or reboots) required to VMs, servers or primary storage.

  • Clustered platform compatible with all VMware operations: PernixData FVP uses patent-pending Flash Cluster™ technology to enable any host to remotely access the flash device(s) on any other host in the cluster. This technology enables PernixData FVP to seamlessly support all VMware operations and products, such as vMotion, DRS, HA, Snapshot, VDP, Site Recovery Manager™, Horizon View™ and vCloud Director®. Live migrations and distributed resource management functions continue to operate transparently with PernixData FVP, with no changes to workflows and no hits to application, network or storage performance.

  • Full read and write acceleration with fault tolerance: PernixData FVP is the only server side solution to support full read and write (write through / write back) acceleration for maximum performance across all virtual applications. Writes are replicated across clustered hosts to ensure complete fault tolerance.
