SimpliVity's OmniCube Wins First Ever Modern Infrastructure Impact Award for Best Converged Infrastructure Product

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

SimpliVity Corporation, the pioneer in globally federated hyperconverged IT infrastructure, today announced that OmniCube™, the company's flagship product, has been named the winner of the 2013 Modern Infrastructure Impact Award for Best Converged Infrastructure Product.

OmniCube took the top honors over other converged infrastructure products from all competitors, including Dell (News - Alert), HP, IBM, Nutanix, Nimble and Scale Computing, further solidifying its superior position in the market. This achievement is the latest in a string of industry awards in which experts have recognized the superiority of OmniCube and its underlying data architecture, including Best of VMworld 2013, and the Red Herring (News - Alert) Global 100.

The Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards recognize the top products and technologies in the essential areas of technology that Modern Infrastructure�covers-cloud, data center, and mobility. The awards are presented by the editors of TechTarget's Data Center Media Group and were judged by the Modern Infrastructure e-zine editorial staff, in conjunction with users, readers and industry experts.

"Winning the prestigious 2013 Modern Infrastructure Impact Award caps off a year of tremendous global growth and momentum for SimpliVity. End users and partners worldwide have rapidly adopted OmniCube to take advantage of its radically new data architecture which is consistently delivering massive TCO savings," said Tom Grave, vice president of marketing for SimpliVity.

OmniCube delivers the entire enterprise data center infrastructure stack 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.

Factors in the selection of OmniCube as the winner of the first-ever Modern Infrastructure Impact Award in the Best Converged Infrastructure category included:

  • Hardware-accelerated inline deduplication, compression and optimization of all data
  • Virtual Machine centricity
  • Native, simplified backup and disaster recovery
  • Overall simplicity and cost savings

"When I saw OmniCube at the show floor at VMworld, I was skeptical," said one reader. "Then I saw it in action and I was floored. This is the sort of direction IT needs to head, and it's clear that [SimpliVity's] vision is on that track." Another reader commented, "SimpliVity reduced the complexity of our virtualized environment. We were able to reduce our capital expense, operational expense and DC footprint."

In addition to the Modern Infrastructure Award, SimpliVity was also the recipient of the 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Global Company Award, 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.
