At Infinio, we believe that it’s important to build our company as carefully as our product. We’ve consciously made the right investments to offer a valuable solution and great customer experience at an affordable price.
Infinio brings to market a fundamentally new architecture to solve the problem of data storage performance in virtualized environments. Our team is 100% focused on applying innovation to make life better for virtualization administrators and the users they support.
Based in Cambridge, Mass., the company enjoys strong financial backing from tier-one venture capitalists including Bessemer Venture Partners, Highland Capital Partners, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Osage University Partners.
Infinio began in 2011 when Columbia computer science professor Vishal Misra and his fellow researchers saw the potential for their work in content-based deduplication to solve real-world problems. Vishal enlisted experienced software industry entrepreneurs and top-notch engineers to take the vision forward.
The problem they decided to attack was that of storage performance in virtualized environments. Unlike traditional approaches, ours required no new hardware, and could be added to environments non-disruptively. While we remain true to those values, we’ve added significant features and performance over the years.
Infinio’s strategy has always been built on these three observations:
1. The highest performance storage architecture is one where the hottest data is co-located with applications in the server.
2. A “memory-first” architecture is required to realize the best storage performance.
3. Delivering storage performance should be 100% headache-free.
Guided by these principles, we’ve built software that enables the use of server-side RAM and flash to be transparent to storage environments, supporting the use of native storage. When storage performance is paramount, Infinio Accelerator is unquestionably the fastest, most effective, and least disruptive solution available.
Meet the industry veterans who are leading our effort to change the way you think about storage performance.
