Astute Networks Enhances AstuteNET Program to Enable Channel Partners to Capitalize on Multi-Billion Dollar All-Flash Storage Market Opportunity

End Users Benefit From Access to ViSX All-Flash Solid-State Storage (SSD) Appliance, Offering Industry's Highest IOPs at Unbeatable Price Point, via Trusted Advisors

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- Astute Networks™, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash™ appliances, today announced significant enhancements to its AstuteNET Program designed to enable its strategic channel partners to capitalize on the multi-billion dollar all-flash storage market opportunity. Value-added resellers (VARs), system integrators (SIs), managed service providers (MSPs) and consultants will now have access to significantly enhanced resources designed to enable them to better serve and grow their client base, and consequently increase profit margins.

AstuteNET's strategic channel partners will enjoy: early access and input into product roadmaps and Beta releases, increased training, sales and marketing support/resources, expanded demand creation and lead referral programs, and enriched loyalty rewards, as well as a dedicated program manager to ensure the smooth launch and ongoing success of the relationship.

End users will benefit from access to the Astute Networks ViSX all-flash solid-state storage appliance, delivering the industry's highest IOPs at prices comparable to (and typically lower than) hard disk systems -- directly from their trusted advisors. Together, the trusted channel advisor and end user will now be able to ensure the highest performance of business critical applications distributed across physical, virtual and cloud environments, while still adhering to strict budgetary guidelines.

A recent International Data Corp. (IDC) research report entitled, "Worldwide Enterprise All-Solid State Storage Array 2013 - 2016 Forecast" (April 2013, Doc #240424) predicts $1.2 billion in revenues by 2015, due to the fact that it is "the most critical, new performance-enabling technology of storage industry development and market expansion."

"The rapid expansion of the all-flash storage arrays market validates that there is pent-up demand for storage performance and accelerating applications at the right price point," IDC noted.

"We have made quite an investment in the newly enhanced AstuteNET program; and, while we have indeed bolstered its vetting process in order to ensure that we team with only the most trustworthy and proven channel partners, we have also further streamlined the program to assure ease of entry and fast time to profit," said Miharu Gold, director, channel sales, Astute Networks. "Bottom line, AstuteNET ensures our strategic channel partners will be able to solve their end user clients' toughest I/O performance challenges and consequently, meet existing requirements, support agile response to new business opportunities, and increase competitive advantage."

"We strive to partner with organizations that deliver powerful yet economical solutions that align with our clients' IT objectives and business goals," said Traci Weston, CEO, Awdata, a trusted provider of comprehensive and progressive technology (IT) solutions since 1981. "We have found after careful assessment, that the Astute Networks ViSX delivers an unmatched solution for achieving lightning fast I/O application performance, while also actually lowering overall IT costs." She continued, "We look forward to a long lasting and mutually fruitful relationship."

"Application performance has become a top priority for our clients and prospects, with reliability, availability and cost control following close behind. Astute's ViSX is by far the best suited to meet these requirements," said Attila Galamb, government sales manager, Coast to Coast Computer Products, a trusted provider of IT hardware, software and services for private businesses, as well as local, state and Federal government customers, for over 25 years. "The AstuteNET Program combined with the ViSX solution has strengthened our product portfolio and led to new revenue opportunities."

"Virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) have unique performance characteristics that legacy storage architectures simply cannot support. Astute's ViSX flash-based storage appliance ensures predictable and sustained performance at the industry's lowest cost per user," said Bruce Thompson, vice president, E-Safe Technologies, a leading provider of state-of-the art support, service and products that allow its small and medium-sized clients to get ahead of the competition and achieve greater success.

"By leveraging Astute's ViSX SSD technology, we are ideally positioned to help our media and entertainment clients to simplify and accelerate information accessibility, in order to meet strategic IT and business goals, such as virtualization, consolidation, cloud initiatives, and big data, as well as other demanding performance objectives -- all while considerably lowering IT expenses," said Frank Quinlisk, vice president of Media Supply, one of the nation's premier providers of publishing, recording and storage systems, equipment and services to the media industry.

"Before we partnered with Astute Networks, we also looked at other flash storage products, however we found that virtually all of them required a tradeoff between performance and suitability for virtualized infrastructures. Only the ViSX could meet our requirements and deliver a solution designed specifically for highly virtualized environments with I/O intensive applications, such as relational databases, VDI and cloud computing," said Joe Asady, founder and CEO, Netfast Technology Solutions, a leading provider of cutting-edge IT Performance and Cost Optimization Solutions for business and government organizations worldwide.

"Boosting productivity, improving efficiencies and growing the business all while keeping costs in check is oftentimes easier said than done. The Astute Networks ViSX enables our clients to achieve high and consistent I/O performance, while improving efficiencies and keeping costs down," said Bryan Norman, president, NORLEM, one of the foremost managed services providers (MSP), focused on enabling business growth through automation and providing solutions with the lowest cost of ownership.

"The AstuteNET Program combined with the innovative ViSX all-flash application acceleration solution, has helped us to further our goal to offer only the most robust and production-proven data management solutions, with the greatest ROI," said Kevin Corcoran, vice president, Storage-IT Solutions, one of the nation's most highly respected providers of delivery and execution solutions across the areas of storage, backup and recovery, asset management, networking, and archiving.
