    You are invited to join PernixData and H. A. Storage at Seasons 52 on April 17th to learn about the latest innovations in virtualized storage.

    Using storage arrays for both performance and capacity is regarded as a natural design by many. This is easy, but almost always introduces issues with storage performance, regardless of the environment size.

    Flash storage is seen as savior to storage I/O bottlenecks, but implementing flash can be
    confusing. Should it go in your SAN? Servers? Both? Furthermore what key features (e.g. write
    acceleration, clustering, etc) are required to turn flash into an effective tool for accelerating
    storage performance across an entire data center?

    Join us for this talk where Frank will highlight:

    • Pros and cons of various flash deployment methodologies
    • Best practices for using flash to accelerate storage performance
    • How to measure results and ROI

    Don't miss out on this opportunity to meet with a luminary in the virtualization space.
    Space is limited to the first 40 people.

    WHO: Frank Denneman, Tech Evangelist, PernixData

    WHEN: April 17th, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm 

    WHERE: Seasons 52, 160 N. Gulph Rd., #101, King of Prussia, PA 19406
