PernixData Appoints Arrow Electronics to Distribute its FVP(TM) Storage Acceleration Software Across Europe

PernixData has appointed Arrow Electronics to distribute the company's FVP(TM) storage acceleration software across Europe. Through the partnership, PernixData will work with local Arrow sales teams to recruit and enable top storage and virtualization resellers committed to optimizing application performance, improving storage utilization, and minimizing storage costs in virtual data centers using new decoupled storage architectures. PernixData FVP will be made available through Arrow in several regions over the coming months, starting with the UK, France, Germany, the Nordics and Belgium. The two companies will co-invest in technical support staff, sales and market development activities to facilitate the adoption of storage acceleration software in these markets. PernixData FVP, one of the premier software platforms for scale-out storage acceleration, virtualizes high speed server resources like flash and RAM into a clustered acceleration tier that enables IT administrators to quickly, easily and cost-effectively scale-out storage performance completely independent of storage capacity. The result is unprecedented read and write performance for all virtual machines (VMs), without the need to change existing server and storage infrastructure. By creating a new software based infrastructure for server side storage intelligence, PernixData fundamentally changes how storage is designed and operated in virtual data centers.

SEGA Networks Co., Ltd. Adopts PernixData FVP Software to Optimize Gaming Service Platform

PernixData announced that SEGA Networks Co. Ltd. will adopt PernixData FVP(TM) software to accelerate storage performance of its gaming service platform. By removing storage performance bottlenecks, FVP will enable Sega to better handle player information and support playing devices like smart phones and tablets. SEGA Networks Co. Ltd. turned to PernixData FVP software to solve their virtualized database performance challenges. FVP virtualizes flash and RAM across servers to create a clustered pool of high-speed resources that accelerate reads and writes to shared storage. By putting storage intelligence into servers, PernixData FVP decouples storage performance from storage capacity for faster virtualized applications, unlimited IOPS (where and when they are needed), and 90% lower storage costs.

University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education Chooses PernixData FVP for Maximum Storage Performance at an Affordable Cost

PernixData announced that the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education has selected PernixData FVP(TM) software to optimize storage performance while lowering storage costs. With PernixData's storage acceleration software, the UGA Center for Continuing Education saved money on the purchase of a new best of breed HP 3PAR storage array, while deploying a new storage architecture that lets UGA virtualize mission critical applications without sacrificing performance. PernixData FVP software virtualizes high speed server resources like flash and RAM into a clustered acceleration tier that enables IT administrators to quickly, easily and cost-effectively scale-out storage performance completely independent of storage capacity. The result is unprecedented read and write performance for all virtual machines (VMs), without the need to change existing server and storage infrastructure. By creating a new software-based infrastructure for server-side storage intelligence, PernixData fundamentally changes how storage is designed and operated in virtual data centers. After deploying PernixData FVP, the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education saw a 4x increase in VM performance and an 8x increase in VM density. In addition, by decoupling storage performance from capacity, the department saved 60% in their new SAN purchase by reducing the speed of drives needed. PernixData FVP was deployed in minutes, with no changes to their existing virtual machines, servers or storage infrastructure, making it a perfect complement to the department's IT infrastructure.
