SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- Astute Networks, Inc., the leading provider of performance storage appliances, today announced that Steve Kucker has been named one of UBM Tech Channel's CRN 2013 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.
The Astute ViSX performance storage appliance was purpose-built to address I/O-intensive applications such as databases, virtualized applications, and virtualized desktops (VDI). ViSX incorporates the patented DataPump Engine processor that completely offloads and dramatically accelerates network and storage protocol processing. The combination of a network-optimized flash and an advanced protocol processor eliminates all critical I/O bottlenecks that affect application and VDI performance and delivers unprecedented random IOPS performance and IOPS per dollar. The solution works seamlessly with all virtualization platforms including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, and Red Hat RHEV and complements existing SAN or NAS environments with a non-disruptive, highly optimized solid state flash-based storage tier.
ViSX performance storage appliances deliver competitive advantages for channel partners by enabling them to offer their customers a new high-performance datastore tier of Networked Flash to performance-constrained environments. ViSX provides the most cost-effective way to deploy solid state flash storage and increase application performance by 10X or more. ViSX quickly deploys in minutes with no application changes and no disruptive rip and replace, or forklift upgrades for installed servers and storage.
For over ten years, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.
"The 2013 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to driving channel programs in the IT marketplace," said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President, Editorial Director, CRN. "Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year's Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community."
Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the 2/25/13 issue of CRN Magazine and is now featured online at www.crn.com.
"I am honored to receive this prestigious award on behalf of Astute as we expand our reach to deliver our purpose-built ViSX flash-based appliances that provide our partners with a performance storage solution that is easy to deploy and delivers unprecedented IOPS per dollar value that other flash or hybrid storage systems just can't match," said Steve Kucker, senior vice president of sales, Astute Networks.
