Coast to Coast Computer Products Becomes an AstuteNET Advantage Partner

(November 21, 2012)
DMN Newswire--2012-11-21--
Leading Government Reseller Partners with Astute Networks in the Delivery of High Performance Flash Virtual Machine Storage Appliances



Coast to Coast Computer Products Inc.TM, a trusted provider of Information Technology hardware, software, services and office supplies for federal, state, and local government and enterprise customers, today announced that it has become an AstuteNET Advantage Partner. As a member of the AstuteNET Partner Program, Coast to Coast is now authorized to deliver innovative and affordable Astute ViSX Flash VM storage appliances.  

By partnering with Astute Networks, Coast to Coast is able to provide solutions for its government customers that enable them to optimize the investments they have made in their virtual and physical infrastructure. According to a recent MariTalk report, "Virtualization Vacuum: The 2012 Government Virtualization Study," 82% of federal and 77% of state and local IT professionals have implemented server virtualization.  And, with virtualized workloads expected to nearly double in the next four years, these government users will be running into performance challenges that only flash-based solid state storage can resolve. By becoming an AstuteNET Authorized partner, Coast to Coast is well positioned to help these government organizations realize the full benefits of a virtualized infrastructure.

About the AstuteNET Partner Program
Designed to recognize a partner's expertise, and reward them for their sales success, the AstuteNET Partner Program delivers real value to help partners increase their sales of virtual infrastructure products and services via an expanded portfolio offering. In addition to extremely attractive product margins, the multi-dimensional program includes dedicated sales resources, assigned technical resources, promotional incentives, education and training, access to a broad set of sales tools, and a comprehensive joint marketing capability for rapid success.  The program is offered at three separate levels ? Reference Partners, Distribution Partners and Advantage Partners ? to provide partners with the customized support and resources they need to best enable the customers they serve.

Astute ViSX Flash VM storage appliances are purpose-built to deliver unprecedented random IOPS performance and unprecedented IOPS per dollar value, helping to unleash the full potential of virtualized environments. ViSX's Networked FlashTM architecture combines ultra-reliable eMLC flash solid state storage modules with Astute's own custom designed high-performance, 10/1GbE DataPump EngineTM protocol processor to completely offload and dramatically accelerate network (TCP) & storage (iSCSI) protocol processing. Tightly fused, they eliminate all critical I/O bottlenecks that affect virtualized application and VDI performance and provisions sharable flash performance to all VMs on all hosts over standard Ethernet networks. The result is a virtual infrastructure that is high performance, free of oversubscriptions and simplified for less data protection layers and complexity.

A GSA MAS program contractor with more than 14 years of experience, "Coast to Coast Computer Products is a recognized leader in IT solutions for government organizations and we are pleased to have them as an AstuteNET Authorized partner," said Steve Kucker, Vice President of Sales,  Astute Networks. "We look forward to working together in the delivery of high performance storage solutions that help government customers optimize their physical and virtual machine performance so that they can realize the most value from their IT environment."
