PernixData, a provider of server-side storage intelligence, has become a certified technology partner in Dell’s Technology Partner Program. By certifying FVP software on Dell PowerEdge servers and Dell Storage, PernixData would enable customers to create a best-of-breed decoupled storage architecture that maximizes VM performance while minimizing IT costs.
“We are thrilled to be aligned with a market leader in the server and storage space who is committed to bringing future-ready data center architectures to market,” said Mike Arterbury, Vice President of Business Development, PernixData. “PernixData and Dell have proven the value of decoupled storage, showing how easy, cost effective, and non-disruptive it can be to solve VM performance challenges in virtualized data centers.”
PernixData FVP software puts storage intelligence into high-speed server media, establishing a control point for optimizing application performance and managing data center operations with true scale-out growth.
With PernixData FVP software, customers can leverage any storage platform for capacity, such as Dell Storage SC Series, PS Series and MD Series array, to create a decoupled storage architecture that maximizes design flexibility while minimizing storage costs. In addition, FVP software can be deployed on any server platform, in conjunction with any high-speed server media. This would make it a perfect complement to Dell’s PowerEdge family of servers.
According to recent momentum figures summarizing PernixData’s record setting first fiscal year, approximately 50% of FVP deployments to date are on Dell PowerEdge Servers, with approximately 30% of PernixData customers using FVP software in conjunction with Dell PS Series storage.
PernixData FVP software is available for resale through Dell as part of the company’s Software & Peripherals (S&P) program. In addition, FVP software is officially certified by Dell for interoperability with the company’s PowerEdge servers and storage as part of Dell’s Technology Partner Program (TPP).
PernixData has also added Dell PowerEdge Servers and Dell Storage to the company’s PernixData Proven Design (PPD) program, whereby various reference architectures, design guides, and solution briefs exist to aid customers in the deployment of PernixData and Dell solutions.
