SAN DIEGO--(Proximal Data, the leading provider of server-side caching solutions specifically designed for virtualized environments, today announced it has signed a distribution agreement with Condre Storage Inc., a leading IT solutions distributor with a strong focus on enterprise storage. Condre will distribute AutoCache, Proximal Data’s fast virtual cache software, to 2,000 value-added resellers across North America.)--
“I am not aware of any other product that can improve the efficiency of virtual machines like Proximal Data’s AutoCache”
“Condre is the only leading IT distributor with a specialized focus on enterprise storage solutions and a team of people with extensive experience in the data storage industry,” said Rory Bolt, CEO of Proximal Data. “Working with Condre gives us the advantage of offering AutoCache to a wide range of VARs that are not only experts in enterprise storage but in server virtualization as well.”
“I am not aware of any other product that can improve the efficiency of virtual machines like Proximal Data’s AutoCache,” said Dennis Maetzold, president at Condre Storage. “Proximal Data offers a unique product that works well with the PCIe® flash-based LSI Nytro™ WarpDrive™ acceleration cards we distribute. With AutoCache, we are able to enter an area of growth in the virtualization space and go to market with a complete solution. Customers can get the most ‘bang for their buck’ with the most throughput and performance.”
Proximal Data’s recently announced AutoCache software is effective at eliminating I/O bottlenecks in virtualized servers to increase virtual machine (VM) density. AutoCache works seamlessly within a hypervisor and can increase VM density up to three times with absolutely no impact on IT operations or requiring agents in guest operating systems. AutoCache places the hot I/O into a PCIe flash card or SSD in order to intelligently supply priority data traffic to all VMs. This increases VM density and efficiency while minimizing system resource usage, enabling idle CPUs to support more business applications. AutoCache is also integrated within VMware management environments (vCenter, vSphere) and does not impact processes such as vMotion.
The Condre and Proximal Data partnership will empower enterprise customers to gain a greater ROI from their virtualization and storage infrastructures. By deploying solutions that optimize I/O efficiency and increase the number of VMs per physical system, enterprises will see an immediate return through the amount of work those systems can accomplish.
