SimpliVity Wins Cloud Tech Trailblazer Award

SimpliVity, a leader in hyperconverged infrastructure for the software-defined data center, has been named the top startup in the 2014 Tech Trailblazers Awards in the Cloud category. The awards program recognizes privately-held organizations around the world that are developing innovative solutions. This distinction is in recognition of SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure technology that helps businesses dramatically simplify their IT infrastructure and reduce total operating costs by 3x. SimpliVity uniquely combines all IT infrastructure below the hypervisor, including storage, compute, networking, data protection, plus numerous independent efficiency products, and enables global unified management.

This recognition comes on the heels of SimpliVity’s tremendous market acceleration in 2014. In the last year, SimpliVity experienced record-breaking sales growth of nearly 500 percent and significantly increased its employee base and partner relationships—including further expansion into EMEA and APJ.

“Being named a Tech Trailblazer in the cloud category underscores our market-leading technology and the strength of our customer and partner relationships,” said Doron Kempel, CEO at SimpliVity. “The need for a simplified and cost-effective cloud infrastructure solution is greater now more than ever as organizations’ virtualization and cloud initiatives are being hampered by legacy IT infrastructure that burdens IT staff and resources. SimpliVity solves this problem by delivering a true hyperconverged infrastructure solution that dramatically simplifies IT and improves operational efficiency.”

At the root of today’s infrastructure complexity problem is an antiquated data architecture that is not suited for today’s virtualized and cloud-integrated applications. SimpliVity OmniStack software-defined infrastructure packaged on industry-standard x86 systems combines 8-12 core data center functions in its globally federated and hyperconverged infrastructure solution to provide the best of both worlds: cloud economics with enterprise performance, protection and functionality.

The Tech Trailblazer finalists were selected through an initial judging round determined by a diverse panel of technology industry experts. The winners were then decided by the voting tech public and revisited by the judging panel.

Rose Ross, Chief Trailblazer said, “On behalf of the team and esteemed international judging panel, I congratulate all the winners of the Tech Trailblazers Awards. We were greatly impressed by the ingenuity and innovation shown in the entries. Winners of this year’s Tech Trailblazers Awards are some of the most exciting enterprise tech startups making an impact in the business world today. I’m sure we will be hearing more about the successes from these inspiring startups in the future. We wish them the very best of tech trailblazing luck in 2015.”
