It’s a validation that our innovative Edge-Core architecture delivers the most cost effective, scalable performance to demanding industries such as oil and gas, media and entertainment, high technology and life sciences among others.”
Avere’s FXT Series Edge filers are a key component of a new architecture for NAS that puts the fastest storage media – and the intelligence to manage it – closest to the user, thus removing performance bottlenecks created by legacy NAS architectures. Avere Systems recently announced the industry’s first-of-its kind hybrid storage appliance with automatic tiering across four media types (RAM, SSD, SAS and SATA HDDs). The new FXT 3800 is 40% faster than the previous record-breaking SPECsfs posting for Avere FXT 3500.
