Santa Clara, CA – Feb. 7, 2012  – Alacritech, the pioneer in NFS storage acceleration, today announced that CEO Larry Boucher will speak at the 2012 Pacific Crest Emerging Technologies Summit in San Francisco on February 14. Boucher will present an overview of Alacritech’s current capabilities, as well as his vision for the future of storage.  Speaking at the Pacific Crest Emerging Technologies Summit is by invitation only.

“In today’s enterprise, efficiently managing ever-increasing amounts of data is becoming both a focus of business execution, as well as a serious financial consideration,” said Boucher. “Many enterprise NAS environments are overstretched as a result of the constant influx of unstructured data. I will discuss solutions that both accelerate the performance and extend the life of existing file-based storage systems while eliminating the need to over-invest in expensive enterprise storage systems, thereby significantly simplifying data management and materially reducing capital and operating expenses.” 

Boucher’s presentation will take place at the Westin Hotel, San Francisco, CA on Feb. 14 at 10:00am, PST, as part of the Next Generation Infrastructure track during the two-day conference from Feb. 14-15. 

Pacific Crest is one of the leading investment banks in the technology sector, with a proven track record of success after working exclusively with technology companies for its 21-year existence.  The Summit is structured to provide programs with unique content and interactive formats to foster the highest level of interaction between corporate management, institutional investors, private equity investors and venture capitalists. To provide this unique forum, the Summit is an exclusive, invitation-only event. If you have any questions please contact your Pacific Crest representative.  For more information, please visit

About Alacritech

Founded in 1997 by network storage pioneer Larry Boucher and group of respected storage executives, Alacritech sets new records for the delivery of increasing amounts of enterprise cloud, video and other rich application data. The company’s first NFS Acceleration appliance, the ANX 1500, mitigates Network Attached Storage (NAS) sprawl and dramatically improves the performance of NFS infrastructures, and does so without requiring the replacement of existing ecosystems or the surrender of ownership of mission-critical data. The ANX 1500 pays for itself faster than any other storage infrastructure solution and provides by far the lowest cost per operations per second (OPS). The company holds 54 patents and has received $34 million in funding from Alloy Ventures, Benchmark Capital, Redpoint Ventures, Berkeley International Capital Corporation, Munder Capital Management, Needham Capital Partners, and Quantum Technology Ventures.
