Astute Networks to Showcase All-Flash ViSX Storage Appliance at Midmarket CIO Forum

SAN DIEGO, CA, April 04, 2014 – Astute Networks, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash appliances, today announced it will showcase its ViSX all-flash storage appliance during next week’s Midmarket CIO Forum, taking place April 6-8 in Pointe Vedra Beach, Florida (Astute Networks Booth #302). During the highly focused event, Astute Networks will join with IT executives, industry analysts and technology innovators to discuss the specific challenges being faced in today’s midmarket datacenters, as well as the technologies and methodologies best suited to overcome them.

“As most savvy IT executives recognize, there are a range of factors that contribute to an IT investment’s true cost and ROI that extend far beyond the price tag associated with the initial purchase,” said Jeff Whitney, Vice President of Marketing, Astute Networks. “Even small infrastructure choices especially in a midmarket datacenter, can have a very meaningful and extended reach throughout an organization from the device, to IT services, to the business bottom-line.”

He continued, “We look forward to the opportunity to further debunk the misperception that flash storage is a luxury best suited for enterprise datacenters, and demonstrating how midmarket organizations around the world are already enjoying Ferrari fast speed, as well as the highest levels of reliability and availability at the cost of traditional spinning disk.”

The ViSX All-Flash Storage Appliance A Perfect Fit for the Midmarket
The ViSX all-flash performance storage appliance was architected from the ground-up to deliver unprecedented speeds and reliable performance at prices associated with conventional spinning disk. This enables IT professionals to unlock the full potential of their organization and convert it into competitive advantage whether addressing critical application performance issues, deploying a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), or moving into the cloud.

Today’s ViSX now also supports the OpenStack Cinder standard as both an iSCSI target and NFS server, enabling end users and cloud service providers (MSPs) alike to leverage it as a flexible and highly cost effective means for meeting storage and application requirements, when deploying infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Moreover, ViSX’s latest OS release, which added Network File System (NFS) v2, v3, and v4 to its current iSCSI support, enables its users to boost Tier 1 applications and VDI performance by as much as 10x, while supporting existing NAS and SAN infrastructure investments. Its patented DataPump Engine makes that performance possible by offloading and accelerating network and storage protocol processing, while leveraging its industry unique networked flash architecture.

Become a Pro Blogger with these Tips
 
Creating a blog can seem overwhelming because there are so many option, possibilities and choices to make. The potential and ideas for blogs are infinite. The tips in this article are designed to help you to create a blog that will accomplish your goals and will reach the audience that your blog was created for.
 
Post original content on your blog, and include pictures or other content. Linking out to relevant sites, quoting experts in a field or adding videos can also make a post more interesting. Make sure you don't plagiarize, though, because people will stop visiting your site. Be unique and interesting with posts!
 
If possible, have someone else go over your blog posts before you post them. This is especially critical for internet marketing posts. People have a tendency to be blind to their own errors, so they will often miss problems with grammar, spelling, sequence, or logic. Another person may also be able to provide information you have left out or correct errors of fact.
 
When blogging, you should make sure that you make your RSS feed as obvious as possible. You can not expect other readers to find it if it blends in with all the text in your blog. This is why you should put it in a prominent position on your blog, and try to make use of the orange RSS icon if possible.
 
If you are going to blog, you need to make sure you choose a niche or market that you are passionate about. There are plenty of blogs out there, and there are just as many topics to choose from. Stay specific, and choose a blogging subject that you can create a successful blog with.
 
Break your blog up into appropriate headings and subheadings. This serves to make the material more palatable. Readers' have a tendency to scan the page for key concepts before they begin to read the entire blog. Headings and subheadings will help them get what they are looking for and ensure they stay on your page long enough to read the entire blog.
Try breaking your posts into manageable pieces. This is a very easy, but unfortunately ignored blogging tactic. Do not write like you are trying to run a marathon. Break up your posts in smaller pieces. This can help boost your SEO, and it can help create a clearer writing approach. This can actually help you think better.
 
Learn everything you can about topics related to your blog. The more quality information you can share, the better your blog will be. The greater your knowledge, the more readers will view you as an expert in the field. This will make the reader more likely to share links to your blog with their contacts.
 
Do not start a blog entry unless you are sure that you can sit down and finish the entire thing. You want to let your mind stay on task, and if you have to stop for any reason, it will be very hard to pick up where you left off.
 
You may want to have contests or giveaways on your site. This helps readers to become a part of your blog and increases their excitement about visiting. Readers are also likely to send links to contacts interested in the content of your contest. The giveaway can vary, depending on your site.
 
Make friends with other blogs that relate to your target niche. You can post useful comments on these blogs, and this will help promote your own blogging as well. Besides providing comments, some blogs will allow you to make guest posts, as this can be mutually beneficial to both of you.
 
The more blogs you write, the more ways potential readers have of finding you via search engines. The more people that successfully make their way to your site, the more visitors you will have actually reading your content. Use this guidance and watch your visitor numbers grow.
 
As you probably already know, creating a blog can be overwhelming at first, because the possibilities and potential for blogs are endless. The tips and techniques from the above article were gathered to help you create a blog that will get your message across to the audience that you are seeking to reach.
