Network World's Favorite IT Product

Who is PernixData?

Network World names PernixData FVP software as one of their favorite IT products. PernixData’s software ultimately virtualizes server flash and RAM to accelerate application performance and lowers IT costs by decoupling storage performance and capacity. It’s a favorite to many data centers because it compliments existing servers and storage environments without requiring any rip and replace. It provides optimal performance with no needed changes to business applications, hosts or storage by optimizing both read and writes using fault tolerant memory. Users claimed to have seen a drop in I/O utilization on storage arrays, and substantially lower web page response times. Senior Systems Engineer of Fanatics says “The average VM latency on our e-commerce applications went from approximately 12ms to < 1 ms with PernixData FVP software in production.” (via Network World)  


What problems do they solve?

With virtualization being the largest trend in data centers over the last 10 years due to its cost savings and increased operational efficiency results, more and more applications are becoming virtualized. However, this type of growth also comes with is a decrease in application performance. The main cause of this problems is derived from the storage array, in which studies show that over 70% of application performance support calls are tied to storage related issues. PernixData believes both in quantity and quality when it comes to their FVP software, which is why their solution addresses latency, I/O bottlenecks and other storage IT challenges that many IT professionals face in their data centers. However, most IT professionals know that best practice is to improve capabilities of their SAN is by moving from iSCSI to Fibre Channel or by upgrading the SAN itself with faster disks and more capacity. The problem with this is that it’s every costly and disruptive to the environment and doesn’t always guarantee application performance.

What companies need and what PernixData offers is a way to improve storage performance separate from storage capacity. A software solutions is necessary to break free from the burdensome and continuous storage upgrades.

Find out how PernixData FVP software solutions can help you discover how to achieve better application performance while saving immensely on storage costs at our MOVIE PREMIERE EVENT ON MAY 1
