IT Professionals Select Violin Memory as All-Flash Innovation Leader in 2014 IT Brand Pulse Survey

Violin Memory®, Inc., (NYSE:VMEM), a leading provider of all-flash storage arrays and appliances delivering application solutions for the enterprise, today announced that the company was voted by IT professionals as the Innovation Leader in the first annual IT Brand Pulse leader survey covering InfiniBand All-Flash Storage Arrays.

According to Frank Berry, CEO and senior analyst, IT Brand Pulse, “Global respondents to the independent survey were asked to select an innovation leader from a roster of powerful all-flash array vendors including Cisco-Whiptail, IBM, NetApp, and Violin. Violin was selected as the Innovation Leader.”

Hundreds of global enterprises accelerate databases, applications, and business decisions with Violin All Flash Arrays, while realizing the transformational economic benefits all-flash solutions deliver to their enterprise. Violin all-flash storage arrays feature the unique Flash Fabric Architecture™ that harnesses the power of flash to deliver industry-leading performance and resiliency in a compact form factor allowing Violin management and optimization from the application layer all the way through the stack down to the individual flash.

A single 3U array delivers more than 1 million IOPS with consistent, spike-free latencies that are sub 500 microseconds (.5 milliseconds), a full order of magnitude lower than legacy storage products. These game-changing features make the Violin Memory 6000, and now the Concerto™ 7000, the storage solutions of choice for high performance, real-time decision-making business applications with stringent service level requirements.

IT decision makers depend on unified storage management and comprehensive data services software including synchronous and asynchronous replication and stretch metro cluster capabilities for their critical applications. In addition, storage snapshots, thin provisioning, LUN and capacity expansion, as well as advanced data protection and storage scaling complements a robust enterprise solution offering. Violin’s Symphony™ storage management console as well as Concerto™ and Windows Flash Array enterprise data services enable business agility, allowing enterprises and IT infrastructure cloud providers to consolidate data center resources and enable new business opportunities.

The Innovation Leader awards were presented at the Flash Memory Summit on August 6, 2014 in Santa Clara, California.
