Astute Networks to Demonstrate How Today's Educational Institution Technology Professionals Can Meet IT Goals at CISOA & 3CBG Conference

ViSX All-Flash Storage Appliance Ensures Lightning Fast Application Performance, Lowers Overall IT Costs, and Helps Keep Schools Green

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/21/14 -- Astute Networks™, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash™ appliances, today announced it will showcase its ViSX™ all-flash solid state storage (SSD) appliance during the upcoming California Community College, Chief Information Systems Officers Association and California Community College Banner Group Conference (CISOA & 3CBG Conference), taking place February 23-25, in Anaheim, California (Astute Networks Booth #104).

During the event, attended by hundreds of CIOs, VPs, Directors and Admins responsible for their educational institutions information systems, security, and IT curriculum, Astute Networks will demonstrate how the ViSX helps them to tackle many of their top challenges. These include keeping pace and supporting application innovation across the back office administration functional areas to the classroom, enabling their school to achieve, measure and report demonstrable improvements in student outcomes, as well as the unyielding requirement to contain and reduce costs.

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 in educational institutions to unlock the full potential of their organization -- whether addressing critical application performance issues, deploying a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), or moving into the cloud.

"IT professionals in education are under ever increasing pressures. These come from the need to acquire, deploy and support rapidly emerging technology innovations that enable their organization to remain competitive, as well as directly from their customers - the administration, faculty and students. These tech savvy customers have come to expect that their applications and information should be instantly available at the click of a button," said Jeff Whitney, Vice President of Marketing, Astute Networks. "The Astute Networks ViSX solution offers a new class of storage solution that ensures lightning fast application performance that boosts administration, faculty and student productivity and satisfaction, lowers overall IT costs, and even helps to keep the school 'green' by eliminating over-provisioned resources and the associated floor space, power and cooling."

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
