High Moon Studios Wins Storage Visions Conference Award with Violin Maestro Memory Appliance

LAS VEGAS & SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Violin Memory (NYSE: VMEM), a leader in persistent memory-based storage solutions, announced its Maestro Memory Appliance was used by High Moon Studios to win the Storage Visions Visionary End User Award for High Performance Storage Application. The media and entertainment market is known for its demanding application and storage environments, and Violin Memory is proud to have assisted High Moon Studios in achieving this recognition.

High Moon Studios creates high-performance games, and was awarded for its use of the Violin Memory Maestro Memory Appliance to accelerate legacy storage to new heights. Using Maestro, High Moon Studios created a 100,000 IOPS storage system in its SAN fabric to accelerate business performance. The company installed a Maestro Memory Appliance as a "bump in the wire" in its Fibre Channel SAN fabric. This allowed the IT staff to monitor the I/O traffic without disrupting ongoing software builds. The performance boost from Maestro cut the software build times down by nine times, enabling the studio's IT department to exceed its service level agreements.

"Getting the most from our game developers is key to our success," said Dan Mulkiewicz, IT director at High Moon Studios. "Violin Memory Maestro accelerated our turnaround, allowing more software builds in a given time, leading to greater programmer productivity."

"High Moon Studios exemplifies the business impact of high performance storage," said Narayan Venkat, VP of product management at Violin Memory. "Violin Memory is delighted to enhance their business productivity with Maestro acceleration."

The Storage Visions conference recognizes and educates attendees on the latest trends in storage as well as how leading companies are implementing storage advances to improve their business. The Storage Vision awards are based on leadership in products and implementation of storage. The Visionary En User Award recognizes the innovative use of storage solutions for high performance applications.

  • Delivers more than 1 million IOPS
  • Accelerates up to 160TB of legacy disk
  • Provides I/O access with latency measured in microseconds
