Infinio Named a 2015 "Cool Vendor in Storage Technologies" by Gartner

Infinio, a market leader in storage acceleration for virtualized data centers, today announced that it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2015” report by Gartner, Inc. The company was also included in the “Technology Overview for I/O Optimization Software” report, which explores how input/output (I/O) software aggregates server-side storage resources and applies non-disruptive enhancements for virtual machine (VM) and physical host performance.

Organizations are looking to reduce storage performance challenges by reducing latency and increasing performance for virtualized environments. Infinio is recognized for its Accelerator product, which aggregates server-side memory across ESX hosts to create a global storage cache without requiring solid-state drives (SSDs) or new hardware. Its inline deduplication increases the effective cache size considerably past the physical memory allocation, enabling the software to serve a significant amount of I/O from the cache, while the Infinio management console offers visibility into the accelerated environment.

“We believe our recognition as a Gartner Cool Vendor reinforces the market need for simple, non-disruptive technologies that increase the performance of virtualized applications or virtual desktops, and also reduce costs of future storage purchases,” said Arun Agarwal, chief executive officer of Infinio. “Infinio’s unique content-based architecture, seamless scale-out and server-side resources enable users to visualize offload rates and system response times, improving holistic performance without affecting operations in the virtualized environment.”

In addition to “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2015" report, the “Technology Overview for I/O Optimization Software” report shows the growing impact of virtualized storage acceleration technologies on customer environments. Infinio customers can enhance the performance of a variety of enterprise applications, including databases and business applications, and specialized use cases such as virtual desktops, test operations, software build and test operations.
