Infineta Systems Named A Finalist For 2012 Tech Trailblazer Awards Networking Category

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Infineta Systems, the first and only provider of WAN optimization solutions for Big Traffic workflows, announced today that the company has been selected as a Finalist for the Tech Trailblazer Awards (#TTAwards) for 2012 in the Networking Category. The Tech Trailblazer awards recognize start-up companies from around the world for their technological innovation and entrepreneurial excellence. Infineta Systems was shortlisted for the award because of its innovative approach to solving today's untenable growth of enterprise data and the aggressive adoption of high-speed replication, cross-site virtualization and Big Data, which are all pushing the inter-data center WAN to its breaking point.

"Being shortlisted as a Trailblazer is tremendous validation of the innovative approach Infineta has taken to solving high-speed inter-data center WAN acceleration," said Haseeb Budhani, Chief Product Officer for Infineta Systems. "Managing the ever-growing traffic rates between data centers is a major challenge for enterprise IT groups, and Infineta's solution provides a cost-effective way for enterprises to drive more traffic between data centers."

Infineta's Data Mobility Switch (DMS) is the only WAN optimization system that leverages merchant-silicon to deliver a distributed, high-performance platform with processing (port-to-port) latencies averaging well under 100 microseconds. Infineta's DMS brings together multiple patented hardware and software inventions in a purpose-built appliance that operates anywhere from 100Mbps to 10Gbps speeds.

The DMS supports the next generation of advanced data center architectures that leverage key innovations around high-performance computing, storage, and service delivery models.

As a result, companies can:

  • Effectively expand the usable capacity of all WAN links by 5x or more.
  • Mitigate the effects of latency on applications traversing WAN links, enabling full utilization (99%+) of expensive WAN bandwidth, regardless of distance.
  • Granularly partition their inter-data center WAN links for use by multiple applications simultaneously.
  • Significantly reduce OpEx by utilizing a cost-effective, shared WAN such as an MPLS VPNs for inter-data center connectivity instead of the expensive point-to-point circuit.
  • Safely provision IP-VPNs without worrying about the debilitating impact of packet loss on such links.

Winners for each Tech Trailblazer category are determined by a public vote and will be announced via Twitter (@Techtrailblazer) on December 18, 2012. Voting begins today, Tuesday, November 20 at techtrailblazers.com/vote and will continue through December 14. Infineta encourages everyone to get out and vote over the next few weeks!

And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.

Struggling to keep up with increasing application demand? Learn how Platform as a Service (PaaS) can streamline application development processes and make resource management easy.
If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
