Press Release

Astute Networks to Show How to Accelerate Healthcare IT Apps

Healthcare IT Summit Attendees to Learn How ViSX Networked Flash Improves Application Performance

Astute NetworksTM Inc., a provider of Networked FlashTM appliances, will feature demonstrations of its ViSX Performance Storage Appliance at the upcoming Healthcare IT Summit, taking place November 17 - 20 at the La Quinta Resort, Palm Springs, CA.

While application performance is critically important across practically every industry vertical, for hospitals, doctors and other healthcare providers the stakes are especially high.  Summit attendees visiting the Astute Networks Booth 208 will learn why Astute understands that poor healthcare application performance typically translates to poor patient care, in addition to frustrated medical professionals and other personnel.  Further, Astute Networks booth visitors will be able to see firsthand how the ViSX delivers the healthcare industry's highest IOPs and ensures the highest levels of availability, at a price comparable to hard disk systems.

"Healthcare IT professionals have a huge responsibility in managing the availability and performance of a range of applications, such as electronic healthcare records, archiving and communications systems (PACS), laboratory, pharmacy, etc., to mention just a few," said Jeff Whitney, vice president of marketing, Astute Networks.  "ViSX enables healthcare IT to break application performance barriers, ensure applications and information are available when needed, while also significantly lowering overall IT costs.  With ViSX, business productivity is increased by 10x or more, with ROI being typically recognized in just days."

Astute Networks' customer Professional Healthcare Resources (PHR) recently deployed a ViSX Networked Flash appliance to address its need to accelerate database, application and virtual desktop (VDI) performance, speed backup processes and lower data center costs.

"The difference in performance between our existing storage array and the ViSX appliance was like night and day," said Hussein Sh-Ibrahim, IT director for PHR.  "The ViSX deployment was very easy and the entire solid state solution was surprisingly affordable. Productivity and efficiency is up, and our employees can now quickly access patient data like never before. Backups that used to take four to five hours, now complete in less than an hour, enabling us to perform other backups that we were not able to do before. If you want fast performance, get ViSX."
