ASTUTE NETWORKS ANNOUNCES SUPPORT OF OPENSTACK TO PROVIDE FLASH STORAGE TO ACCELERATE CRITICAL APPLICATION PERFORMANCE FOR PUBLIC AND PRIVATE CLOUDS

Astute Networks' Cloud Service Provider and IaaS Partners and End User Customers to Benefit from ViSX All-Flash Storage Appliance Delivering Industry's Highest IOPs at Unprecedented Price Points

 

SAN DIEGO, Calif. –  Astute Networks,Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash™ appliances, today announced its support of , an open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. By supporting the OpenStack Cinder standard as both an iSCSI target and a NFS server, Astute's appliance offers end users and cloud service providers alike a flexible and cost effective method for meeting their storage and application performance requirements when deploying infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

 

A recent report by , titled, predicts OpenStack-related revenue will grow from $600m in 2013 to $1bn by 2015. Astute Networks is well positioned to address this burgeoning opportunity with its adaptive ViSX storage appliances that accelerate application performance by 10x or more, enhances user productivity and lowers IT costs for physical, virtual and cloud environments. 

Applications such as virtualized databases, SharePoint and VDI have demanding I/O performance characteristics that legacy storage architectures were never designed to support. The Astute ViSX performance storage appliance was purpose-built to address these I/O-intensive applications. ViSX eliminates all critical I/O bottlenecks that affect application and virtual desktop (VDI) performance and delivers unprecedented random IOPS performance and IOPS per dollar.

 

ViSX delivers competitive advantages for cloud service providers to offer their customers a new high-performance datastore tier of Networked Flash to performance-constrained environments to enhance user productivity and lower IT costs. ViSX provides the most cost-effective way to deploy solid state flash storage with an easy to install appliance.  ViSX quickly deploys in minutes with no application changes and no disruptive rip and replace, or forklift upgrades for installed servers and storage.

 

"We see that OpenStack is developing significant momentum with the many organizations that understand the tremendous value of this project, and we know that our ViSX appliance will help these organizations capitalize on this value with high performance flash based storage for their private and public cloud initiatives," said Keith Klarer, founder and vice president of engineering,  Astute Networks. "OpenStack deployments for VDI and for relational database consolidation are two applications in which users can see an immediate and meaningful ROI by deploying our flash storage systems. There is also significant interest in our flash storage when implementing object database systems in environments that need high object access performance, or low access latency."
