SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PernixData exited stealth mode today to introduce its software-defined Flash Virtualization Platform (FVP) that virtualizes server-side flash into a scale-out data tier for enterprise data centers. Designed to address virtualization's ever increasing storage performance requirements, PernixData's FVP is the first product that enables organizations to use server-side flash storage in a seamless manner.
"In recent times there have been efforts to bring data closer to compute. I was involved in one such proprietary hardware-based effort when I co-founded Oracle Exadata. PernixData, on the other hand, is bringing data closer to compute via a transparent software platform that seamlessly integrates server flash with virtualization," said Poojan Kumar, CEO and co-founder of PernixData. "We have built an enterprise class, server-side, scale-out flash virtualization platform completely in software, which provides orders of magnitude more storage performance without making any changes to virtual machines or existing storage systems. PernixData has done for server flash what VMware did for CPU and memory."
"Virtualization and server flash are made for each other, but there is no way today to bring the two together without breaking critical virtualization features," said Satyam Vaghani, CTO and co-founder of PernixData. "At PernixData we have built a platform that allows users to leverage server flash seamlessly as a clustered resource in virtualized environments. For the first time, users can now deploy a server-side, scale-out tier for data in motion while leveraging any existing storage system for data at rest. We essentially bring scale-out storage to everyone."
"PernixData's product marks the emergence of a strategic new data tier for today's virtualized infrastructure," said Mark Leslie, CEO and co-founder of Veritas Software and early VMware board member. "The potential impact of such disruption reminds me of VMware's early accomplishments."
"PernixData brings together the rare combination of a top team and a game changing technology," said Bipul Sinha, partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners. "The channel partners will love the economics of a truly frictionless software-defined storage platform."
PernixData is working with a select number of companies as part of its early access program. If you are looking to make a strategic change to the design of your virtualized data center please visit www.pernixdata.com to join PernixData's Early Access Program. PernixData plans to have its software more generally available in Q2 2013.
PernixData is the provider of a Flash Virtualization Platform (FVP) that enables enterprises to overcome storage and performance barriers that limit the penetration of virtualization within the data center. The company was established in February 2012 by Poojan Kumar, a co-founder of Oracle Exadata, and Satyam Vaghani, VMware's Storage CTO, creator of VMware's clustered file system (VMFS), and architect of several storage-related innovations at VMware over the last decade. PernixData raised an over-subscribed round of Series A financing in 2012, which was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners' Bipul Sinha. Mark Leslie, Founder & CEO of Veritas and former VMware board member is an investor and current board member of PernixData. In addition, PernixData is backed by industry luminaries such as John Thompson, ex-CEO of Symantec and Microsoft board member, and Lane Bess, ex-CEO of Palo Alto Networks.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
