Astute Networks to Showcase ViSX Solid State Storage Appliance

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Nov. 25 – Astute Networks, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash appliances, today announced it will showcase its ViSX all-flash solid state storage appliance, at the upcoming ASAE 2013 Technology Conference & Expo taking place December 4-5 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (Washington, DC).

During the event, which pulls from the ASAE’s over 21,000 association and industry partners representing more than 10,000 organizations, visitors to Astute’s Booth #1026 will see for themselves why lightning fast application performance isn’t just for the large commercial enterprises anymore. At pricing comparable to spinning disk, Astute’s ViSX enables customers to boost virtualized application, database and virtual desktop (VDI) performance by as much as 10x. Furthermore, attendees will see that the ViSX is not a rip-and-replace solution. That means customers can migrate applications running on underperforming storage onto the ViSX, and then reclaim not just the space the app was consuming, but also all of the unused storage that was sacrificed for short stroking. This allows organizations to free up critical capacity on their existing storage networks while eliminating the need to purchase or overprovision additional storage resources.

“Astute Networks ViSX all-flash storage not only provides a dramatic increase in performance, it also enables an IT organization to enjoy tremendous cost savings, which is of course an ongoing concern for non-profits,” said Jeff Whitney, vice president of marketing, Astute Networks. ”Consequently, associations and non-profit organizations around the world have deployed the Astute Networks’ ViSX in order to enjoy the same performance, reliability, scalability and protection as the largest, most profitable business organizations, at pricing comparable to traditional storage arrays.”

The US Air Force recently deployed the Astute Networks ViSX to support its mission critical virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). To learn more about how the ViSX helped the Command’s IT management team to achieve its goals, including: increasing performance, boosting user productivity and satisfaction, and enabling cost-effective and transparent scalability to support its hundreds of users please read, “US Air Force Makes VDI Fly with Astute ViSX Storage Appliances” (http://www.astutenetworks.com/resources/case-studies/).
