PernixData Wins 2014 Storage Magazine Product of the Year Award, Underscoring Record Year for Server-Side Storage Intelligence

PernixData FVP™ Takes the Gold in Storage Systems Software Category

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2015) - PernixData, the leader in server-side intelligence, announced today that the company's flagship product, PernixData FVP™ Software, has been awarded the top honor in the Storage Systems Software category of the 2014 Storage Magazine Product of the Year Award. This marks the eighteenth award PernixData has received in eighteen months of shipping product, underscoring the huge demand for server-side storage intelligence and establishing PernixData's leadership position as the software leader in this space.

PernixData FVP software was selected for the Gold Award by the Storage Magazine and TechTarget SearchStorage editorial teams and by industry experts. The award was given for technological innovation, based on the following five criteria:

  • Performance: By putting storage intelligence into server flash and RAM, FVP software optimizes the performance of all read/write intensive virtualized applications, delivering a 10x performance improvement on average.
  • Ease of integration: FVP software is installed in under 20 minutes inside the hypervisor kernel, with no changes required to existing applications, hosts or storage. 
  • Ease of use: Getting more storage performance is as simple as adding more server resources (RAM/Flash) to an FVP environment.
  • Functionality: FVP software distinguishes itself with various groundbreaking features, including fault-tolerant read and write acceleration, clustering, support for flash and RAM, and compatibility with all storage devices. For more information on the latest feature set, please see
  • Value: By decoupling storage performance from capacity, FVP software can save over 90% on storage costs by eliminating unnecessary hardware purchases.

Since launching FVP in August 2013, PernixData has been recognized with more industry awards than any other enterprise storage software startup. These awards include key distinctions such as Gartner's "Cool Vendors in Storage", 'Editors Choice' by InfoWorld's Test Center, Modern Infrastructure Bright Idea Impact Award by TechTarget, two 'Best New Product' awards at VMworld 2013, 'Coolest Emerging Tech Vendor' by CRN Magazine, and "Forbes America's Most Promising Companies".
