Avere Shortlisted in the DCS Awards for Storage Hardware Product of the Year
LONDON, UK – May 3, 2012 – NAS Optimization provider Avere Systems' FXT Series Edge filers have been shortlisted for Datacentre Storage Hardware Product of the Year in the UK’s Datacentre Solutions Awards. The recognition from the judging panel, which includes SNS Europe editor Phil Alsop and Freeform Dynamics programme director Tony Lock, is yet another affirmation for the company that has consistently been listed as a top storage start-up since its launch in late 2009 and whose products have won accolades from customers and analysts alike.
Avere’s FXT Series Edge filers are a key component of a new architecture for NAS that puts the fastest media and the intelligence to manage it closest to the user, boosting performance and removing storage bottlenecks created by legacy NAS architectures. With Avere, customers achieve unlimited application performance scaling; global data access independent of where the storage is located; and dramatic cost savings in both capital and operating expenses. Avere’s NAS Optimization approach is especially useful in storage environments involving cloud computing and virtualization and for those looking to deploy Flash media.
Rebecca Thompson, Vice President Marketing, Avere Systems, said, “Avere has spent the last twelve months building up its European presence, and making the shortlist for one of the UK’s most respected data centre awards is a great acknowledgement. We look forward to continuing to work with our channel partners to make it easier and less costly for enterprises to optimize their current NAS infrastructures.”
