Waltham, MA (PRWEB) October 13, 2011
Advanced Visual Systems (OTC Pink: AVSC) a leader in the field of high performance data visualization and integrated analytics, has selected Savvis, a CenturyLink company, as a preferred technology supplier of cloud hosting and services. AVS frequently collaborates with its enterprise and original equipment manufacturer clients in the design and development of service-based analytical applications and solutions that leverage its OpenViz data visualization system (http://www.openviz.com). Many of these solutions are being migrated to the cloud after years of traditional Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or desktop deployment, or created from inception as cloud-based initiatives.
In the recent rollout of an AVS client project that involves remote storage of large data and sophisticated in-memory analytics, Savvis’ performance validated the promise of the cloud to analytics-intense applications.
According to Anoop Chatterjee, CTO of Advanced Visual Systems, “Savvis enables us to scale a parallel application that can run 10 times faster than before in terms of overall performance. They assisted our client in the creation of a high-demand cloud solution through Savvis’ Symphony Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC) that completely eliminates any requirement for AVS or the client to think about hardware. The flexibility of access to CPU compute, high performance input/output processing time, network transport and extensive memory resources gives us total freedom to design without limitation and deploy with confidence.”
OpenViz, a feature-rich and highly flexible application program interface, is distinguished in the corporate and research analytics sector through a broad range of options for the exploitation and display of data and exceptional performance, both of which are essential as the volume and complexity of data increases. AVS counts more than 2,000 global corporations, government agencies and research institutes as licensees of its data visualization software products, including 20 percent of the Fortune 100 and two of the five largest software companies.
