St. Trudo Hospital Deploys PernixData FVP™ Software for Optimal Email, File and Database Performance

I/O Acceleration Software Complements HP Storage and Dell Servers to Lower IT Costs and Improve Employee Productivity

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2014) - PernixData, the leader in server-side storage intelligence, announced today that St. Trudo Hospital, a regional hospital in Belgium, has deployed PernixData FVP™ software with HP StoreVirtual and Dell PowerEdge servers to optimize the performance of virtualized email, file and database applications. By implementing a new decoupled storage architecture using server flash with I/O acceleration software, the hospital increased employee productivity through faster access to key patient and administrative data. At the same time, it saved substantial money by avoiding an unnecessary and expensive storage upgrade.

St. Trudo Hospital selected FVP Software for two key reasons. First, the hospital had 40 TB of available capacity on their HP array, which meant they did not need to buy more storage capacity. PernixData FVP software enabled St. Trudo to seamlessly add more storage performance while leveraging the existing investment in capacity. Second, the PernixData solution was easy to install inside the hypervisor, with no changes to applications, hosts or storage.

"It was a very simple decision to choose PernixData FVP software," said Kris Broux, systems administrator at St. Trudo Hospital. "It was seamless to install inside my production network and delivered immediate results with clear price and performance gains. The application performance improvements are like night and day in comparison to before PernixData FVP software was installed."

PernixData FVP software, the premier platform for scale-out storage acceleration, 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 applications. By creating a new software-based infrastructure for server-side storage intelligence, PernixData fundamentally changes how storage is designed and operated in virtual data centers.

"I can thoroughly recommend this solution to anyone with similar application performance challenges -- you won't be disappointed!" concludes Broux.
