Publisher: RealWire

London, UK – May 7th 2013 – NAS Optimization provider Avere Systems' FXT Series Edge filers have been shortlisted for Datacentre Hardware Product of the Year in the UK’s Datacentre Solutions Awards. A judging panel of respected UK editors and analysts selected the shortlists; winners will be determined by public vote. Voting is open until May 9th at Vote today for your chance to win a free Kindle Fire. 

Rebecca Thompson, Vice President Marketing, Avere Systems, said, “Having our NAS Avere Edge filer shortlisted for the UK’s prestigious DCS awards for a second year in a row is exciting.  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.

To read the nomination and vote for Avere’s FXT Series Edge filers by the deadline of Thursday May 9th, please visit
