We told you last week that Infinio Accelerator has been certified Citrix Ready. And, not-so-coincidentally, the Infinio away team attended our first Citrix Synergy show in Anaheim, California.
With over 5,000 attendees, Citrix Synergy is very busy. We had a great week at the show. The biggest highlight was getting to meet so many customers and partners, and introducing them to Infino. Of course, for us New Englanders tired of a long winter, the weather was a highlight too.
Here some more highlights from our Citrix Synergy debut:
We are pleased to announce that Infinio Accelerator is verified as Citrix Ready. Accelerator has met Citrix's test criteria for third-party partners, and is now part of the program recognizing verified, trusted solutions.
