SimpliVity Corporation, the pioneer in globally federated hyperconverged IT infrastructure, today announced that it has been named a 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Global Company, a prestigious award that recognizes the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia. The award reflects SimpliVity’s stellar 2013 which saw the rapid global adoption of its breakthrough OmniCubeTM, the world's first and only, all-in-one, globally scalable IT infrastructure platform.
Fueling this rapid growth is SimpliVity's OmniStackTM technology that allows customers to build the most efficient, simplified, and scalable infrastructure for their virtualized environments leveraging SimpliVity's unique data architecture. Service providers, financial services customers, utilities, universities, state and local governments and more are all reaping the benefits of SimpliVity's revolutionary technology and novel data architecture. In being named a winner of the Red Herring Global 100 award, SimpliVity joins elite organizations including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay, all of whom have been awarded the honor in past years.
OmniCube delivers all requisite enterprise data center functionality with extreme efficiency and ease of management and can be deployed as simplified building blocks, with each unit delivering compute, hypervisor, storage, networking, cache-accelerated performance, native VM-centric backup, WAN optimization, replication for disaster recovery, and public cloud integration. OmniCube’s underlying technology, OmniStack™, is SimpliVity's highly innovative and novel data architecture that combines inline, accelerated deduplication, compression and optimization of all data, once and forever, with a global federated framework that the IT team can use to manage globally distributed nodes as a single, unified infrastructure system.
In June of this year, SimpliVity was named to Red Herring's Top 100 North America 2013, along with several of the company’s primary competitors; however, on the strength of OmniCube’s rapid global market adoption, along with its game-changing, transformational potential to enterprise IT, SimpliVity has broken away from the pack and is now listed among an elite, globally recognized group of technology innovators.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe SimpliVity embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture.”
“2013 marked a year of tremendous growth and momentum for SimpliVity, as demonstrated by the rapid, widespread demand for OmniCube and our successful expansion into global markets,” said Tom Grave, Vice President of Marketing at SimpliVity. “Increasingly, customers and partners recognize that to compete in today’s market requires a new data architecture that is both hyper-efficient and global, which is what we’ve delivered in OmniStack. Being named a Red Herring Top 100 Global company is another significant indication of the revolutionary innovation that SimpliVity is delivering to the market, as the judges recognize the global value and game-changing dynamics of the OmniCube platform.”
"SimpliVity is one of the biggest innovations in enterprise computing since VMware," commented John Doerr, General Partner of Kleiner Perkins, and early backer of Sun Microsystems, Netscape, Google, and Amazon. "Its OmniCube is radically simplifying IT infrastructure with systems that are better, faster, smaller and less expensive than competitive offerings. SimpliVity is well positioned to transform IT."
In addition to being named a 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Global Company, SimpliVity was also the recipient of the 2013 Best of VMworld Gold Award, Computerworld 100 Best Places to Work 2013, 2013 Red Herring Top 100 North America, Networks Products Guide Gold Medal Winner 2013, and CRN Channel Chiefs Award 2013. In November, SimpliVity announced a $58 Million C-Round of funding to enable significant global acceleration within the hyperconverged IT infrastructure market.
Next week, Dec. 9-11, SimpliVity will be demonstrating the power of OmniCube live at the Gartner Data Center Conference as a Platinum Sponsor of the event, held at the Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Visit SimpliVity in booth #215.
