SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug 20, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Alacritech, the pioneer in NFS storage acceleration, today announced that Doug Rainbolt, V.P. of Marketing, will speak at the 7th Annual Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California, on August 23rd at 8:30 a.m. PST. Rainbolt is presenting during the session titled, “Enterprise Applications Part 3: Database/Data Management Acceleration,” along with representatives from Nimbus Data Systems, SanDisk, STEC, Teradata, IBM and Texas Memory Systems. Rainbolt’s presentation is titled, “Boost Performance and Extend NAS Life.”

“There is a change occurring in the Network-Attached Storage (NAS) paradigm,” said Rainbolt. “Enterprises are realizing the need for a performance layer that can sit between clients and NAS storage. A performance layer that is non-intrusive, delivers incremental performance, takes advantage of customers’ current investment, and will save them time and money – right now. On August 23rd, I hope to shed light on a solution to the never ending quest for scalable performance to respond to mounting unstructured data.”

Rainbolt’s presentation will take place during the session scheduled for 8:30 to 10:50 a.m. PST on Thursday, August 23rd at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
