SimpliVity Awarded Computerworld 100 Best Places to Work in IT
STANDING OUT AMONGST GIANTS, SIMPLIVITY IS NAMED TO COMPUTERWORLD 2013 LIST OF THE 100 BEST PLACES TO WORK IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
WESTBOROUGH, Mass., June 17, 2013—In the 2013 list of IDG Computerworld’s 100 Best Places to Work in IT published today, one company stands out amongst technology industry giants. SimpliVity Corporation, an innovative early stage tech company in hyper-growth mode, captured this honor not only because it provides its team members with an exciting, challenging, well-organized, and fair atmosphere, but primarily because it provides them all with the rare opportunity to make a long lasting, significant impact on the IT industry at large.
SimpliVity is the company behind OmniCubeTM—a revolutionary IT infrastructure platform that is changing the IT landscape. Built for virtualized environments, OmniCube provides a massively scalable shared pool of x86-based resources that spans data centers across the globe and the cloud, delivering the functionality of up to 12 independent products within a single assimilated stack, and providing efficient data movement and global federated management of all virtual machines from a single location, through a single pane of glass, by a single operator.
In delivering OmniCube, SimpliVity is leading the cutting edge “software-defined data center” category, a disruptive trend that is upending the traditional IT infrastructure environment by allowing IT teams to deliver high end functionality on low-cost, standardized hardware. OmniCube’s significant differentiated value is driving rapid market adoption, both in the U.S. and throughout the globe, and is fueling SimpliVity’s hyper-growth.
SimpliVity may seem an unusual choice, given that companies listed by Computerworld have average revenues of over $14B and have an average employee base of close to 30,000. In naming SimpliVity to this year’s Top 100 list, Computerworld recognized that unlike any other company, SimpliVity offers its team the unique opportunity to be part of a revolution in IT, and therefore merits a spot on the list aside tech giants such as Verizon, CA, Raytheon, and Boeing.
“As a team, we recognize the rare and exciting opportunity that we face,” said Doron Kempel, CEO. “We know that our team members are the key to our success, and we take great pride in taking care of the people who support our mission. I personally thank every member of the SimpliVity team and their families for their commitment. We are honored that Computerworld has recognized SimpliVity in its 100 Best Places to Work in IT list.”
Jeff Boardman, Senior Solutions Architect for Corporate IT Solutions, one of SimpliVity’s customers, recognizes the difference in SimpliVity employees. “During our deployment and use of OmniCube, my team and I have been fortunate to meet many of the SimpliVity team and we see their motivation, excitement, and energy. It is clear that they are all driven by the opportunity they face, and the ownership they feel as part of SimpliVity,” said Boardman. “In addition to the technology, the human capital at SimpliVity is a huge differentiator”
This award comes just weeks after SimpliVity garnered a spot on Red Herring’s 2013 Top 100 list of innovative private companies, further demonstrating the industry’s growing recognition of SimpliVity’s leadership in the emerging category of software-defined data center offerings.
