SimpliVity Named to CRN’s Virtualization 50 List
Editors Highlight the Most Innovative Vendors in the Virtualization Space
WESTBOROUGH, Mass. — June 25, 2014 — SimpliVity, the leader in hyperconverged infrastructure for the software-defined data center, today announced it has been named to CRN’s 2014 Virtualization 50 list. The annual project highlights channel-friendly companies that have built some of the most innovative virtualization technology available today.
Selected by CRN editors, the 2014 CRN Virtualization 50 recognizes the vendors that are addressing a growing market need for the channel with technology that forms the building blocks of today’s virtualization solutions. The list aims to help solution providers identify and evaluate virtualization technology vendors and programs to help grow their businesses.
In the post-virtualization data center, IT organizations are seeking the economics that cloud computing provides, in concert with the performance, control and protection they are accustomed to in their own virtualized data center. SimpliVity offers its Data Virtualization Platform delivered on hyperconverged infrastructure that ensures performance, capacity, mobility, manageability and protection of virtual workloads while delivering the economies of scale of a cloud computing model.
SimpliVity is dedicated to the mission of simplifying IT by unleashing the full power of virtualization. Recognizing the need to clear away the blockades that the traditional, disjointed IT infrastructure stack imposes on the potential value of virtualization and the cloud, SimpliVity’s revolutionary platform is designed and optimized for the VMware environment. OmniCube’s holistic infrastructure architecture fulfills the promise of virtualization and the cloud: radical simplification, IT commoditization, globalization and a cost model.
“The editorial team at CRN strives to offer its readership consistently unique content to navigate through the growing number of options when it comes to innovative technologies available today, and virtualization is no exception,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “As market adoption among virtualization solutions gains momentum, our annual Virtualization 50 list serves as a valuable resource in the purchasing process. We congratulate the winners and look forward to their continued success.”
“We are thrilled to be recognized by CRN as a disruptive innovator in the ever-evolving virtualization space,” said Doron Kempel, CEO of SimpliVity. “We continually strive to empower our customers with an innovative solution designed to remove the complexity that holds back virtualization and the Cloud today, and this honor truly validates our achievements in hyper convergence.”
