San Diego, CA, August 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Astute NetworksTM, Inc., the leading provider of Networked FlashTM, today announced it has been named a 2013 Emerging Technology vendor by UBM Tech Channel’s CRN Magazine. The annual list highlights hot tech startups making an impact on the channel and impression on the tech industry as a whole. These up-and-coming technology vendors have recently introduced a new product or technology that is not only innovative, but generates the high margins solution providers require in today’s competitive marketplace. Astute Networks was singled out for the second year in a row for its innovative ViSX application acceleration appliance combined with its world-class AstuteNET Partner Program.
Astute Networks’ ViSX application acceleration appliances deliver competitive advantages for channel partners and complement their customers’ virtualized infrastructures by adding a high-performance datastore tier of Networked Flash to performance-constrained environments. ViSX provides the most cost-effective way to deploy solid state flash and increase application performance by 10X or more. ViSX quickly deploys in 10 minutes or less, with no complex management interfaces, no application changes, and no rip and replace, or forklift upgrades for installed servers and storage required – further ensuring ROI is recognized in just weeks.
Designed to recognize a partner’s expertise, and reward them for their sales success, the AstuteNET Partner Program delivers real value to help partners increase their sales of virtual infrastructure products and services via an expanded portfolio offering. In addition to extremely attractive product margins, this multi-dimensional program includes dedicated sales resources, assigned technical resources, promotional incentives, education and training, access to a broad set of sales tools, and a comprehensive joint marketing capability for rapid success.
“Any technology vendor can claim to offer innovative products and groundbreaking technology, but only a select group can truly impact the marketplace with their offerings,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “The companies named to the 2013 Emerging Vendor list offer solutions that deliver as promised while creating the high margins that solution providers demand. We congratulate all the vendors for their commitment to delivering technological innovations that map to the needs of the dynamic channel market.”
“We are honored to have been recognized once again by UBM Tech Channel’s CRN magazine as one of the true innovators in the flash storage marketplace,” said Ted Lesinsky, vice president of sales, Astute Networks. “Our purpose-built ViSX solution provides our partners with a turnkey flash application to help their customers eliminate performance bottlenecks and accelerate application and VM performance at a cost that other iSCSI flash or hybrid storage systems simply can’t match.”
Lesinsky continued, “Bottom line, we are a hit with our channel partners because we help them to recognize revenue faster. Because the ViSX is easy to install and support, it virtually eliminates low/no revenue time that would otherwise have been consumed by install and support activities. Consequently, there is more time available for higher billing architecture and consultative activities. Last, but certainly not least, ViSX offers higher margin upgrade opportunities, without the need to compete against any main line vendors.”
The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2007 or later, and have revenue under $1 billion. To view the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit www.CRN.com starting August 12. The list will also be featured in the August issue of CRN magazine.
