Proximal Data Partners With France Distributor PACT Informatique

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--

Proximal Data, the leading provider of hypervisor I/O intelligence software solutions, today announced a partnership with PACT Informatique, a leading distributor of IT solutions in France. PACT Informatique will distribute AutoCache, Proximal Data's innovative server-side caching solution, to technology channel value-added resellers, system integrators and service providers across France and French territories. AutoCache with I/O Intelligence removes I/O bottlenecks and increases virtual machine (VM) density by up to three times to attain maximum performance for business-critical applications.

"Proximal Data's AutoCache provides companies with a simple and cost-effective approach to maximizing storage resources and boosting application performance," said Maurice Bodokh, CEO at PACT Informatique. "As a storage specialist, we find AutoCache to be a great fit with our portfolio of groundbreaking solutions for storage and virtualized environments."

"By partnering with PACT Informatique, we will benefit not only from the company's specialization in storage solutions and its expansive reseller network, but also the wide range of technical and support services it provides its customers," said Rory Bolt, CEO of Proximal Data. "PACT Informatique will be instrumental in successfully delivering our hypervisor-based caching solution to customers in France and the surrounding region."

AutoCache is the only hypervisor I/O intelligence solution designed specifically to increase VM density in virtualized servers and accelerate business application performance. With its I/O Intelligence, AutoCache automatically characterizes I/O in real time and dynamically places hot I/O into a local PCIe Flash card or solid-state disk (SSD), and then intelligently supplies prioriy data traffic to VMs. AutoCache is a read cache with write-through and write-around techniques. It dynamically adjusts to changing workloads and will not impact high-availability processes such as vMotion. This incredibly simple solution is also the most cost-effective way to take advantage of the performance benefits of enterprise Flash, converting a modest Flash investment into a huge value.
