Avere Systems to Bring High Performance, Scalable NAS to Microsoft Azure

Customers Can Harness the Power of the Azure Compute Infrastructure On-Demand, Anytime With On-Premises Data Storage

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/16/15 -- Avere Systems, a leading provider of enterprise storage for the hybrid cloud, today announced a strategic relationship with Microsoft Corp. that will bring its Virtual FXT Edge filers to Microsoft Azure. Customers can now deploy and scale cloud compute on-demand while using on-premises storage resources, making NAS data accessible to Azure without experiencing latency or requiring that data be moved to the cloud.

Avere's virtual NAS solution is easy to install and manage, provides multi-protocol file access (including NFS and SMB), and clusters to deliver high availability, scalable performance and capacity. In a matter of minutes, enterprises can deploy thousands of Azure HPC instances on-demand to crunch data with low latency and no data migration. Businesses can tap into hyper-converged infrastructure of Azure with ease, without breaking the bank.

"At Avere, we've been dedicated to shattering the myth that organizations can't have enterprise NAS performance in the public cloud," said Rebecca Thompson, VP Marketing of Avere Systems. "Now, working with Microsoft, we're helping enterprises harness the computing power of Microsoft Azure, the same infrastructure used by more than 57 percent of Fortune 500 companies, for all of their big data applications."

Nicole Herskowitz, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure, said, "By integrating the near-infinite processing capabilities of Microsoft Azure, organizations will gain a tremendous business advantage as the power of this flexible, enterprise-grade cloud computing platform becomes an extension of their own IT infrastructure."

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
