PernixData Wins Second Consecutive "Best New Product" Award at VMworld 2013

PernixData FVP™, the Industry's First Flash Hypervisor, Distinguished by Virtualization Review Magazine as Best in Class

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 29, 2013) - PernixData, the leader in virtualizing server flash, today announced that its PernixData FVP™ software was named 'Best New Product' for the VMworld Best of Breed Awards presented by Virtualization Review magazine. Virtualization Review leads the industry as the only print publication specifically targeting IT professionals embracing virtualization technology. This is the second award win for PernixData at VMworld 2013. PernixData FVP was also named a finalist in SearchServerVirtualization's Best of VMworld 2013 awards in the 'New Technology' category, announced Tuesday.

A team of judges comprised of experts and editors from Virtualization Review reviewed and evaluated hundreds of products showcased at VMworld. PernixData FVP was chosen for its innovative approach to virtualizing server side flash, which seamlessly enables companies of all sizes to scale-out storage performance separate from storage capacity. 

"We are thrilled that our PernixData FVP software was selected by yet another highly respected publication as a top new product at VMworld 2013, the premier event for virtualization," said Jeff Aaron, vice president of marketing at PernixData. "It is clear from these awards that our value proposition is really resonating with industry observers and end users. This is an exciting time for PernixData as we take our Flash Hypervisor to market, disrupting the storage status quo in the process."

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.
