Astute Named One of "The 10 Coolest Flash Storage Products of 2013" by CRN

ViSX Networked Flash Solution Eliminates Application Performance Challenges

Astute Networks, Inc., a provider of Networked Flash, has announced that it has been named one of "The 10 Coolest Flash Storage Products of 2013" by CRN Magazine. The ranking article, which appeared on July 18, 2013, rated the industry's top flash storage companies.

"Flash storage has become the 'in‘ technology of 2013, with new types of flash and SSD technology increasingly embedded in servers as well as storage and mobile devices and with most major vendors offering or planning to offer all-flash storage arrays," writes CRN's Joseph Kovar. "San Diego-based Astute Networks in April expanded its ViSX family of performance storage appliances with a new MLC flash option targeting small to medium enterprises and SMBs."

Astute with over 13 years of solving IT performance problems has pioneered Networked Flash technology to overcome the application performance limitations common in demanding virtual and physical environments. Astute's customers report noticeable business improvements after deploying the Networked Flash ViSX.  The solution is focused to deliver significant improvements in application performance by 10X or more.  The platform delivers the best value approach based on price of entry, cost per user, and reduction in infrastructure costs at one-half to one-tenth the cost of traditional solutions. The beauty of ViSX is its simplicity, it installs in approximately 5 minutes - no tuning is required and no ongoing management.

The newest version of ViSX now expands to 45.6 TB of raw capacity within a single 2U enclosure. When deployed with ViSX Performance Dedupe, the effective capacity can exceed over 250 TB. New flash storage modules are available in 400-GB, 800-GB and 1.9-TB capacities that can be mixed and matched within the same appliance.

"This recognition speaks to our key benefits performance, value, and simplicity we provide our customers to help them overcome the challenges of application performance issues impacting user productivity in their virtual infrastructure," said Ted Lesinsky, vice president sales, Astute Networks.  "Our customers and partners have found that ViSX delivers unprecedented performance in a highly reliable solution that improves application performance up to 10x at the lowest cost of any Ethernet network-based flash or hybrid storage solution."
