Attendees to Learn How to Drive Peak Performance and Ensure High Availability Across Business Critical Applications, Without Breaking the Bank

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- Astute Networks™, Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash™ appliances, together with strategic partner Storage-IT Solutions, a leader in the deployment of storage, backup and disaster recovery (DR), archiving, asset management, and networking solutions, today announced they will jointly host a dinner entitled, "Intro to Flash" on Thursday, March 13 at Tavern on Rush (Chicago, IL).

Kicking off the evening, Keith Klarer, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Founder of Astute Networks, will speak on the trends and technologies shaping the future of the fast-paced flash storage industry. Following this talk, Keith will open the floor to an interactive discussion intended to provide an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning regarding today's key challenges and available solutions, as well as lessons learned from the road.

"Data driven applications must be highly available and operate at peak performance in order for any business to gain actionable insight and transform it into competitive advantage. But, does this level of performance come at a cost that is simply unattainable for anything but the largest enterprise organizations?" asked Kevin Corcoran, Vice President, Storage-IT Solutions. "The answer today is 'no.' Flash can be entirely affordable and ensures the greatest ROI for your business critical applications and information." He continued, "I look forward to joining with Keith, the Astute team and the knowledgeable IT professionals in attendance at the dinner to explore these and other top IT and related business challenges."

"Today, many IT professionals are still surprised to learn just how affordable blazing fast performance can be," explained Klarer. "Driven by a need to provide better storage performance and efficiency, at a much lower cost, many of these folks have already turned to or are considering flash solutions. I too look forward to joining with Kevin, the Storage-IT team and the highly experienced IT professionals attending the dinner to discuss how flash storage has or could change everything."
