University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education Chooses PernixData FVP™ for Maximum Storage Performance at an Affordable Cost

School Speeds VM Performance by 4x, Increases VM Density by 8x, Saves 60% on Storage Costs

SAN JOSE, Calif. – June 3, 2014PernixData, the leader in server-side storage intelligence, announced today that the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education has selected PernixData FVP™ software to optimize storage performance while lowering storage costs. With PernixData’s storage acceleration software, the UGA Center for Continuing Education saved money on the purchase of a new best of breed HP 3PAR storage array, while deploying a new storage architecture that lets UGA virtualize mission critical applications without sacrificing performance.

“PernixData FVP software delivers the best performance at a fraction of the cost of all flash storage arrays,” said Corey Doster, IT Director at the Georgia Center. “This has enabled us to virtualize more applications like mission critical databases, while saving tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary server and storage hardware. With PernixData software, we can easily scale-out storage performance to keep pace with our virtual demands.”

PernixData FVP software, the premier platform for scale-out storage acceleration, virtualizes high speed server resources like flash and RAM into a clustered acceleration tier that enables IT administrators to quickly, easily and cost-effectively scale-out storage performance completely independent of storage capacity. The result is unprecedented read and write performance for all virtual machines (VMs), without the need to change existing server and storage infrastructure. By creating a new software-based infrastructure for server-side storage intelligence, PernixData fundamentally changes how storage is designed and operated in virtual data centers.

After deploying PernixData FVP, the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education saw a 4x increase in VM performance and an 8x increase in VM density. In addition, by decoupling storage performance from capacity, the department saved 60% in their new SAN purchase by reducing the speed of drives needed. PernixData FVP was deployed in minutes, with no changes to their existing virtual machines, servers or storage infrastructure, making it a perfect complement to the department’s IT infrastructure.
