“We’re delighted to work with such a strong company to bring our solutions to enterprises served by its extensive network of resellers in Malaysia,” he added.
Springlab will distribute the complete portfolio of Violin solutions, including the recently launched Violin Windows Flash Arrays, 6000 Series flash memory arrays, memory appliances, Violin Maestro, and Violin Symphony software.

Violin Memory is quickly gaining in popularity as companies seek powerful, yet more energy and physical space efficient solutions that serve specific datacentre needs.
Servers and CPUs in the datacentre are usually poorly utilized. CPUs consume 200W on average; yet operate at less than 5% utilization, said Springlab in a statement issued.
Violin Memory resolves these bottlenecks by reducing latency from 5ms to 200 microseconds, a 25x improvement which significantly increases CPU utilization especially big data where terabytes or petabytes of information sets are analysed per second.
