It makes intuitive sense that storage acceleration provides both hard and soft benefits to an IT infrastructure. Of course faster application and desktop performance is valuable, especially if the method you choose allows you to save the cost of buying additional storage capacity.

But wouldn’t it be good to see the tested, validated ROI of a solution like Infinio Accelerator? We thought so, which is why Infinio asked ESG, the Enterprise Strategy Group, to dig into the details and model the cost benefits to be gained with Infinio. Today we’re happy to release ESG’s Economic Value Validation white paper by analysts Mark Peters and Adam DeMattia.

The bottom line is this: ESG found that Infinio’s approach to decoupling storage performance from capacity offers a 158 percent return on investment and an average investment payback period of just six months.




The study takes into account three scenarios: an unaccelerated infrastructure, a competing acceleration solution, and implementation of Infinio. In all three cases, costs were considered in areas including hardware, software, maintenance and support, infrastructure, and staff, all over a three-year time period.

Highlights of the white paper include comments ESG gathered directly from Infinio customers. Customers cited increased application performance, extended life for existing storage resources, and significant cost advantages over acceleration alternatives.

For all the details, download the full white paper, and let us know what you think.
