SimpliVity Corporation, the provider of OmniCube, the world’s only globally federated hyperconverged infrastructure system, today announced that Network Products Guide has named OmniCube a Gold winner of the 8th Annual 2013 Best Products Awards in the Data Center category. The award was granted to SimpliVity in recognition of OmniCube’s significant technological differentiation, its value to end-users, and its rapid market adoption.
Network Products Guide is the preeminent technology and advisory guide, and is the definitive resource for IT decision makers. The annual award program honors the achievements of IT vendors that have distinguished themselves in delivering high value offerings to IT purchasers. OmniCube’s Gold metal achievement is another point of validation during a year in which OmniCube has taken the IT market by storm.
SimpliVity’s OmniCube is the only globally federated and hyperconverged infrastructure solution on the market today. Designed and optimized for the VMware environment, OmniCube takes infrastructure convergence to a new level by enabling OmniCube systems around the globe to connect within the OmniCube Global Federation, enabling simplified scalability within the data center, and efficient data movement between data centers and the Cloud. At the heart of OmniCube is the SimpliVity Data Virtualization Engine, providing real-time deduplication, compression, and optimization on all data within the OmniCube Global Federation, thereby radically reducing both the acquisition cost and the ongoing operating costs of the system, and significantly simplifying the overall infrastructure on a global basis.
“Our Gold Medal win at the 8th Annual 2013 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards is further validation that OmniCube is providing IT organizations - large and small - with radical simplification and dramatic cost reduction in their IT infrastructure,” commented Doron Kempel, CEO of SimpliVity. “Our novel data-architecture has changed the game.”
This award comes on the heels of several recent industry awards and accolades for SimpliVity and OmniCube, which collectively demonstrate SimpliVity’s recognition as a leader in the rapidly growing IT segment of infrastructure convergence. CRN recently honored SimpliVity with a 5 star rating in its annual vendor guide, and named VP of Sales, Rich Shea, a Channel Chief for 2013. SimpliVity was also recently named a Finalist in the Red Herring Top 100 award program, and was a finalist in the 2013 New England Innovation Awards.
