Data storage for all companies continues to grow. Managing this growth and, protecting existing infrastructure investments, and maintaining consistent levels of performance to an increasing number of users and applications, particularly in virtualized environments, are key priorities for C-level executives. Balancing these priorities is a challenge, given the sometimes conflicting objectives of each of the stakeholders.
Astute Networks, an emerging San Diego, CA based company, has a new approach that solves these problems. ViSX™ – its networked flash application performance acceleration appliance combines high reliability enterprise-class flash memory (eMLC) with its proprietary and patented DataPump EngineTM, a purpose-built highly parallelized network processor that provides full TCP & iSCSI offload, as well as key system features processed in hardware, to “ensure sustained maximum flash performance over Ethernet.”
