We had a great year here at Infinio. I asked our team members what accomplishments they were most proud of, and here's what everyone said:
One of the benefits of our developing Infinio Accelerator on VMware's VAIO platform is that we can offer support for new versions of vSphere nearly immediately. With the recent introduction of vSphere 6.5, we are proud to announce that we are now listed in VMware's compatibility guide.
This release supports all types of datastores, including VMFS, vSAN, and vVols, on this latest version of vSphere. In fact, we remain the only caching vendor to support all these datastore types on any version of vSphere.
Today we announced a North American agreement with worldwide technology distribution leader, Tech Data. This is a landmark moment in our company history as we move forward with a partnership to bring our server-side cache technology to partners and customers.
Every year, CRN’s annual Top 100 list “salutes the key players who continue to shape the way channel does business.” The publication calls its elite 100 “influencers,” “leaders,” “innovators” and “disruptors.” These are the people “who are changing the way business gets done in the IT channel” and Infinio CEO and Co-Founder Arun Agarwal appears on this year’s list amid its top 25 innovators.
We are very excited to announce that after a successful beta program, Infinio Accelerator v2.0 is now in general availability. This milestone product announcement comes at a time of a strong market momentum for Infinio, including continued customer success and market adoption, and an accelerated channel recruitment campaign following the recently-launched partner program.
Gartner is well known for its Magic Quadrants, highly influential and eagerly anticipated research reports that provide a qualitative analysis into a market and its direction, maturity and participants. In recent years, Gartner has introduced a new series of “Cool Vendors” reports, which feature smaller organizations with future potential. These reports profile providers of innovative, original technologies that are making a difference in their respective markets. And this year’s Gartner Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies (1) report included Infinio as one of five vendors.
Running a virtualized data center or a VDI environment can be challenging. But Minara Resources, an Australian mining company, runs both in the harsh conditions of a 24/7 mining operation.
Minara supports all of its business systems and desktops using a virtualization and VDI environment across the home office in Perth, and its Murrin Murrin mine operation 425 miles away. When workers started to experience slow response times, Minara deployed Infinio to improve performance.
Budd Van Lines uses a fully virtualized data center to manage operations for its shipping and logistics business. The company, which specializes in executive relocations, supports its office employees and field staff using VMware vSphere for a mixed enterprise workload as well as XenApp/XenDesktop VMs for VDI.
This year we are again giving away a free pass to VMworld 2014! The conference pass is part of our vIP prize package, which also includes access to the VMunderground party and lots more.
Update: The contest is now over. Thank you to everyone who participated.
