Netfast Technology Solutions, a leading provider of cutting-edge IT Performance and Cost Optimization Solutions for business and government organizations worldwide, and Astute Networks(TM), Inc., the leading provider of Networked Flash(TM) appliances, today announced the expansion of Netfast’s membership to the AstuteNET Partner Program. As a result, Netfast will receive broad resources, training and loyalty rewards to fuel the delivery of Astute ViSX All-Flash Solid-State Storage (SSD) to meet the high application performance and availability demands of its customers.
Through the AstuteNET Program, customers of Netfast will benefit from access to the Astute Networks ViSX all-flash solid-state storage appliance which delivers the industry’s highest IOPs at prices comparable (typically lower than) hard disk systems. Together, Netfast and their end user customers will now be able to ensure the highest performance of business critical applications distributed across physical, virtual and cloud environments, while still adhering to strict budgetary guidelines.
“Before we partnered with Astute Networks, we also looked at other flash storage products, however we found that virtually all of them required a tradeoff between performance and suitability for virtualized infrastructures. Only the ViSX could meet our requirements and deliver a solution designed specifically for highly virtualized environments with I/O intensive applications, such as relational databases, VDI and cloud computing,” said Joe Asady, founder and CEO, Netfast Technology Solutions.
The newly enhanced AstuteNET Program provides partners like Netfast with access to significantly enhanced resources designed to enable them to better serve and grow their client base, and consequently increase profit margins. AstuteNET’s strategic channel partners will enjoy: early access and input into product roadmaps and Beta releases, increased training, sales and marketing support/resources, expanded demand creation and lead referral programs, and enriched loyalty rewards, as well as a dedicated program manager to ensure the smooth launch and ongoing success of the relationship.
“Through our enhanced partner enablement programs, strategic AstuteNET program members like Netfast can achieve tremendous new business opportunities and growth potential,” said Miharu Gold, director of channel sales, Astute Networks. “With our support, our partners can capitalize on the multi-billion dollar all-flash storage market opportunity with the industry’s highest IOPs solution at unbeatable price points.”
