Sigma Designs Deploys Avere for Speed and Savings

Semiconductor Firm Slashes Latency to Enable Remote Productivity

PITTSBURGH - April 15, 2014 - Avere Systems, a leading provider of enterprise storage for cloud enabled data centers, today announced that Sigma Designs has deployed Avere's FXT Series Edge Filers to deliver significantly improved productivity for design engineers by providing fast, reliable access to critical design systems and data. With Avere, Sigma Designs IT organization can consistently deliver responsive, high-availability infrastructure, even as rampant data growth strains systems and mounting administrative and energy costs threaten always-tight budgets.

Sigma Designs IT evaluated options from NetApp and flash-based storage vendors before choosing Avere for its ability to significantly reduce latency at half the cost of other solutions.

"Avere Systems gives our company new flexibility to deploy infrastructure for both productivity and cost advantage," said Ali Siddiqui, IT Director at Sigma Systems. "Moving our servers and storage to a remote co-located data center—with greater infrastructure protection and lower power costs—allowed us to deliver higher availability to our design teams at a lower cost. Avere technology lets us maintain a 'local' user experience, protecting the low-latency responsiveness engineers need to stay productive."

"For technology firms like Sigma Designs experiencing exponential data growth, every hour of reduced productivity can put schedules at risk and incur significant cost to the company," said Ron Bianchini, CEO, Avere Systems. "Avere's FXT Series Edge Filers continue to gain traction in the market because of our unparalleled ability to reduce latency and improve performance at half the cost of other solutions, delivering real business value and competitive advantage to customers like Sigma Designs."

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
