It enables SSD-class performance and reduced latency with no additional hardware by leveraging existing resources within hosts. Infinio lets customers accelerate their storage systems separately from capacity without the need for additional hardware and without impacting production environments.
“This recognition by CRN validates how valuable Infinio Accelerator is to today’s virtualized data center, allowing IT professionals and organizations to achieve high performance without adding more hardware or disrupting their existing storage,” said Infinio vice president of global channel, Bob Skelley. “The unique nature of Infinio’s solution provides performance benefits to end users and a compelling complement to our partners’ enterprise solution portfolios.”
