GreenBytes Named a Finalist for a Tech Trailblazers Award

Desktop Virtualization Solution Provider Nominated in the Virtualization Category

ASHAWAY, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- GreenBytes®, Inc., a developer of cloud-scale IO-offload solutions that enable organizations to meet desktop virtualization performance requirements using their existing architecture, today announced that the company has been shortlisted as a Virtualization Trailblazer in the 2012 Tech Trailblazers Awards. The first-annual Tech Trailblazers Awards, designed to recognize and reward startup innovation in enterprise technology from around the world, have named GreenBytes as a finalist in the Virtualization Trailblazer category in recognition of the company's IO Offload Engine, a purpose-built, cloud-scale desktop virtualization solution that enables organizations to reliably and cost-effectively meet demanding virtualization performance requirements using their existing storage architecture.

"We are pleased to be named a finalist in the Virtualization Trailblazer category for the Tech Trailblazers Awards," said Brett Johnson, Senior Vice President, Global Sales at GreenBytes. "This recognition further validates the IO Offload Engine as a disruptive and innovative desktop virtualization solution in an increasingly competitive and thriving market."

As current storage architectures fail to meet IO (input/output) loads needed for cloud-scale VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) deployments, customers struggle to scale desktop virtualization IO within their existing environments. This IO management challenge is delaying adoption and driving up the costs of large-scale VDI. A small footprint plug-and-play network device, the IO Offload Engine delivers enterprise-scale desktop virtualization performance to meet demanding virtualization use cases while enabling organizations to minimize costs, deliver custom per-session settings, all while retaining their existing storage architectures.

Voting for the Tech Trailblazers Awards is currently live through December 14 and votes may be registered via GreenBytes' Virtualization Trailblazer nomination page: http://tinyurl.com/bwjjvm7. The winners of the 2012 Tech Trailblazers Awards will be determined by the voting public and the judging panel and will be announced via Twitter (@Techtrailblazer) on December 18, 2012.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
