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.
