VMUG Seattle Attendees To Learn How To Eliminate Performance Bottlenecks and Add 140,000 IOPs Of Sustained Performance In Just Minutes

SAN DIEGO, CA, March 29, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - Astute Networks, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash appliances, today announced it will join together with Seattle’s VMware user community to discuss virtualization trends, best practices and the latest technology during the VMUG User Conference, taking place on April 1, from 7:30 a.m.  5:30 p.m. (Hyatt Regency Bellevue).
During the event, Astute will showcase its ViSX all-flash storage appliance and discuss how it is able to meet the demanding performance requirements of VMware environments.  Attendees will learn that although a number of solid-state disk (SSD) products have been introduced, what sets the ViSX apart is its patented DataPump Engine protocol processor.  The DataPump Engine accelerates network and datastore traffic by completely offloading the storage and network processing to a purpose-built application specific integrated circuit (ASIC).  This results in a 5-10x price/performance advantage over any other device on the market.  The ViSX enables users to add performance to virtual machines (VMs) in minutes, without the limitations of physical server hardware, at the lowest cost per IOPs in the industry.
We look forward to the opportunity to discuss how the ViSX complements the rich functionality of VMware products with powerful storage performance that eliminates performance concerns for virtualized architectures, said Jeff Whitney, Vice President of Marketing, Astute Networks.
