Taneja Group Report Identifies Astute ViSX as a Cost-Effective and Non-Disruptive All-Flash Storage Appliance for the Mid-Market

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Astute Networks™, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash™, today announced that The Taneja Group has recognized the Astute ViSX family of all flash performance appliances as ideal solutions for the mid-market. In the Taneja Group’s August 2013 report, “Astute Networked Flash ViSX: Application Performance Achieved Cost Effectively on iSCSI Networks with All-Flash Storage,” the research firm recognized the Astute solution for its ability to accelerate even the most performance-challenged applications in a cost-effective and non-disruptive manner.

“As an all-flash storage appliance that resides between servers and iSCSI storage arrays, ViSX complements and enhances existing iSCSI SAN environments, delivering wire-speed storage access without disrupting or forcing changes to server, virtual server, storage or application layers,” stated Taneja Group analysts in the report. The report is based on research data and findings from the Taneja Group Storage Acceleration and Performance Study generally available now. “ViSX allows mid-market customers to address performance challenges that creep up as surprises, while tackling even fairly extreme challenges and addressing those challenges with a long term solution. We believe that iSCSI customers in particular should look at ViSX as a cost-effective and non-disruptive solution for accelerating their most performance-challenged applications.”

The report outlines the following key points specific to the flash storage market and explores the driving factors behind each:

• Mid-market customers find storage performance to be a significant challenge
• Customers recognize that virtualization is driving many storage performance challenges
• The mid-market still favors iSCSI, and many customers would like to employ an iSCSI solution for their performance-sensitive applications
• Users are often uncertain about which storage acceleration approach will best meet their needs

Taneja Group subsequently recognizes Astute Networks’ ViSX as an ideal solution for mid-market customers that are looking to avoid the painful tradeoffs inherent in server and storage based application acceleration approaches. The all-flash solid state storage appliance offers the industry’s highest IOPS per dollar and speeds database, virtualized application and virtual desktop performance by up to 10 times. Featuring a patented 10GbE DataPump Engine™ and Networked Flash architecture, ViSX gives mid-market IT managers a simple to deploy storage I/O acceleration appliance that will improve user productivity, customer satisfaction and revenue generation while eliminating the over-provisioning of storage, server and network resources.

“As the Taneja Group report underscores, ViSX is delivering revolutionary performance enhancements to even today’s most demanding applications,” said Michael Schmitt, senior director of product management, Astute Networks. “Whether the critical applications are database-based or a Big Data or VDI deployment, performance is among the most vital factors for IT to manage. With ViSX, we are helping organizations achieve new performance possibilities like never before, without disruptions or heavy investment costs.”
