PernixData to Host Upcoming Webinar on Flash in the Virtual Data Center

Technology Evangelist and Industry Luminary Frank Denneman to Discuss the Potential of Flash in the Enterprise and Best Practices for Success

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2013) - PernixData, the leader in virtualizing server flash, today announced a complimentary upcoming webinar led by technology evangelist Frank Denneman, focused on the role of flash in the enterprise virtual data center.

Virtualization has significantly changed the way modern data centers operate today, but storage systems have not kept pace, creating I/O bottlenecks that significantly hamper application performance. In today's enterprise, IT administrators need a way to efficiently scale storage performance using virtualization, much in the same way they scale server compute and memory. Many industry leaders view flash as the savior to storage I/O bottlenecks. But, implementing flash can be challenging -- should it go in your SAN, your servers or both? And, what key features (e.g. write acceleration, clustering, etc.) are required to turn flash into an effective tool for accelerating storage performance across an entire data center?

Join the PernixData webinar to hear about the potential for this exciting technology, the pros and cons of various flash deployment methodologies, best practice advice for turning flash into an effective tool for accelerating storage performance, real world case studies, and end user benefits of implementing flash, including lower VM latencies, increased IOPS, improved storage utilization, and more.
