Virident Named Finalist in Fifth Annual 2013 Golden Bridge Awards

Company's FlashMAX Connect Software Suite Chosen as Finalist in Information Technology Category

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 5, 2013) - Virident Systems Inc., the performance leader in server-side flash storage solutions, has been recognized as a finalist in the Information Technology category in the Annual 2013 Golden Bridge Awards for its FlashMAX Connect ™ software suite. FlashMAX Connect is the industry's first software suite to deliver a shared server-side flash storage tier. Golden Bridge Award winners will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, Sept. 30, 2013, during the fifth annual awards dinner and presentations.

The FlashMAX Connect software suite redefines the enterprise networked storage architecture, bringing the performance of server-side flash into enterprise applications that previously relied on slower, high-cost, proprietary SAN hardware. FlashMAX Connect provides the extremely low latency of flash, while delivering the shared capacity, manageability and high availability of legacy SAN architectures. FlashMAX Connect is designed to optimize the use of server-side flash storage for database applications, including applications where a single PCIe card can be used by multiple servers.

"It's an honor to be named a finalist by the Golden Bridge Awards for this esteemed industry and peer recognition," said Mike Gustafson, CEO of Virident. "With FlashMAX Connect, our customers are able to share flash storage across the server farm like never before.
