As 2014 draws to a close, it seems like a good time to look back at Infinio’s year. It’s been a busy one, full of growth, learning, and sharing ideas with our customers and industry friends. Here are some of the highlights – Infinio’s year in review.

2014 was the first full year our product was on the market, and we were proud to work with so many wonderful customers who became friends. Several were kind enough to share their stories, including Minara Resources, National Specialty Alloys, Budd Van Lines and Attivio. Each one had different reasons for choosing Infinio, and we look forward to sharing many more customer success stories in 2015.

We participated in so many regional VMUG meetings we lost count – but know that we’ll do even more in 2015. Keep an eye on our events page and we’ll hope to see you at a VMUG near you!

One of the most fun projects we worked on was with our friends Brian Madden and Gabe Knuth – filming the blockbuster hit “Junkyard NAS.” Watch to see how these intrepid techies brought an ancient storage array to life through the magic of Infinio. Get some popcorn and check it out!

We also did an informative podcast with Brian and Gabe that you can listen to here, and our CTO, Scott Davis, spoke to a packed room at BriForum on “Disruptive Innovations in Storage: What do they Mean for VDI?”

The highlight of every year in the virtualization community is, of course, VMworld. We had a great time there meeting so many of you. You can see a fun highlights reel here.

Growth was a key theme of 2014 for Infinio. We outgrew our original office space twice – moving to larger quarters in the same building in Cambridge’s Kendall Square, and as the year draws to a close, we’re getting ready to open a second engineering office in Nashua, NH. Two key additions to the executive team drove our development: Scott Davis joined as our CTO and Brian Nadeau as Sr. VP of Product Development. Look for more great things under their leadership in 2015.

Finally, we were honored to add two more awards to our trophy case during 2014. Infinio was named to the CRN Virtualization Top 50, and to the Red Herring Global 100 list.

It was, indeed, a busy year for Infinio, and we look forward to even more progress in 2015. Happy New Year!
