Violin Memory, Inc. Key Developments

Violin Memory, Inc. Adds Violin's 7700 Flash Storage Platform to its Existing Violin All Flash Array Deployment

Violin Memory, Inc. has added Violin's 7700 Flash Storage Platform (FSP) to its existing Violin all flash array deployment. With the addition of the 7700 FSP, the customer has increased the performance and capacity of its storage, allowing for quicker processing of insurance claims. The 7700 FSP also allows the company to take advantage of Violin's stretch cluster feature, ensuring business continuity. The company originally chose Violin's all flash array solution to accelerate the association's business-critical claims-processing application, as well as to migrate all Tier 1 workloads from a mainframe environment to a modern infrastructure deployed around Microsoft SQL and VMware. Unsure of its existing ability to provide high availability (HA) and knowing that the failure of primary data was not an option, the customer turned once again to Violin. When deployed in clusters, the FSP offers HA functionality through what is known as stretch clustering. Combining the benefits of HA and disaster recovery, the stretch cluster functionality allows customers to deploy a HA solution between two geographically separated sites. In case of failure on one site, the identical data is immediately available at the other site, as the data sets are constantly synchronized.

European Based Hedge Fund Adds Violin Flash Storage Platform to Support Massive Computational Analyses on Multi Terabyte Datasets

Violin Memory, Inc. announced that a European-based hedge fund has deployed the Violin 7300 Flash Storage Platforma, (FSP) for use in the computational analysis of massive datasets. The hedge fund selected Violin 7300 FSPs for its ability to support data persistence in analyzing and back-testing trading strategies before running those strategies in live production. This latest win by Violin involves adding 7300 FSPs to an existing Violin all flash array deployment that supports the fund's "calculation farm" which is used to increase the scope of the fund's research zone. The research zone feeds data into the calculation farm and SQL databases -- all of which have experienced significant performance improvements since the initial deployment of Violin all flash arrays. For unified management of the arrays, the fund selected Violin's Symphonya, flash management console, a single portal for managing petabytes of primary, flash-based storage across Violin's Flash Storage Platforms and all flash arrays. The Violin FSP represents the ultimate enterprise storage solution, the shortest path to the all-silicon data center while delivering continuous data protection and the highest-performance storage at the lowest CAPEX and OPEX possible.

Online Electronics Retailer Selects Violin Memory Flash Storage Platform(TM) for Management of Business Critical Tier 1 and Tier 2 Workloads

Violin Memory, Inc. announced that a major online retailer of consumer electronics has deployed the Violin 7300 Flash Storage Platform (FSP) to improve its online transaction processing (OLTP), critical to maintaining rapid, reliable and secure responsiveness to its customers worldwide. The retailer initially acquired Violin All-Flash array systems to power its back-end and disaster recovery operations. The newest 7300 FSP deployment marks the second phase in the retailer's objective to leverage the economic advantages of implementing Violin's FSP in its enterprise operations to support tier 1 and tier 2 primary storage workloads. The Violin FSP represents the ultimate enterprise storage solution, and helps IT and storage professionals to drive competitive and economic advantages within their companies and by doing so find themselves being truly instrumental to the success of their companies.
