SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VMworld -- Infinio, inventor of downloadable storage performance, announced today at VMworld 2013 the opening of its public beta program. The company's first product, Infinio Accelerator, is now available for beta testing by qualified customers. Live demonstrations of the product will be available at Infinio's booth, number 410, in the VMworld Solutions Exchange.
The company is also announcing the product's pricing at $499 per socket (including the first year of maintenance) when it is generally available, in Q4 of this year. Because Infinio offers a software-only solution to what has traditionally been a hardware problem, this pricing compares very favorably with SSD-dependent solutions from other vendors.
"We know that our price will be much lower than alternate solutions, but we've also put tremendous effort into making sure that Infinio Accelerator will save our customers' time - a crucial consideration when adopting new technology," said Arun Agarwal, Infinio co-founder and CEO. "IT administrators have a big job to do, and we're sensitive to the fact that they don't have days or weeks to spend evaluating possible solutions. Our product can be downloaded, installed, and showing results in just 30 minutes. No new hardware, no reboots, no downtime, and even a one-click uninstall."
Infinio offers downloadable storage performance for NAS-backed virtual environments, separating the problem of storage performance from the issue of storage capacity. Infinio Accelerator provides the IOPS needed to support growing virtual environments and VDI, without the need for SSDs or other new hardware.
Infinio Systems, Inc. is building solutions that improve the NAS data storage performance of virtualized environments. Based in Cambridge, Mass., the company enjoys strong financial backing from tier-one venture capitalists including Highland Capital Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Lightspeed Venture Partners. Infinio is an Elite-level member of the VMware Technology Alliance Partner program. More information is available at www.infinio.com.
