Infinio Recognized by CRN as a 2015 Emerging Vendor

Infinio, a market leader in storage acceleration for virtualized data centers, announced today it has been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

Many IT organizations face the challenge of accelerating storage performance in virtualized environments, but traditional solutions are generally expensive, require hardware and disrupt ongoing operations. By contrast, Infinio Accelerator enables customers to acquire storage performance separately from capacity, doing it in a way that is less intrusive, more flexible, requires no changes to operations and is less than half the cost of similar alternatives. The solution – included in a recent Gartner Cool Vendors report and now recognized as innovative by CRN – increases storage performance by leveraging existing resources within hosts. All of this is done with no additional hardware investment and no changes to existing configurations.

Infinio’s multi-tiered Channel Partner Program supports value-added resellers (VARs), distributors and consultants addressing data-center performance issues in the storage industry. The company works directly with partners to qualify potential customers, offer the technology and deploy and support Infinio Accelerator. Infinio and its partners deliver a cost-effective way to apply the company’s content-based storage acceleration solution to optimize virtualized data-center performance.

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

“Altogether, Infinio Accelerator enables businesses to significantly reduce latency and improve application performance without disruption to their existing storage environments,” said Infinio Vice President of Global Channel Bob Skelley. “CRN’s acknowledgment of Infinio is a substantiation of our value in the market and the overwhelming need for our solutions, and our inclusion in the 2015 CRN Emerging Vendors List reflects our commitment to providing the industry’s best storage acceleration solution to our partners and end users alike.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2015 issue and will be available online at
