Azure.Source – Volume 78
When it comes to adding a performance tier between compute and file storage, Avere Systems has led the way with its high-performance caching appliance known as the Avere FXT Edge Filer. Last week at NAB, attendees will got a first look at the new Azure FXT Edge Filer, now with even more performance, memory, SSD, and support for Azure Blob. Since Microsoft’s acquisition of Avere last March, we’ve been working to provide an exciting combination of performance and efficiency to support hybrid storage architectures with the Avere appliance technology. We are currently previewing the FXT 6600 model at customer sites, with a second FXT 6400 model becoming available with general availability.
