“The Connexion Point team is honored to be named an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year finalist. This award carries an immence level of prestige. It is a recognition of the team’s efforts: a validation of our vision, of our belief that we could create something truly industry-disrupting, of our willingness not just to think outside the box – but to throw the box away, of the late nights… it’s a real validation of what we’ve spent the last five years building,” states McMichael.

The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year honorees are selected for their creation of market-leading businesses, as well as for their ability to take excellence to new heights, to transform the face of industry, to create jobs, and to contribute to the vibrancy of communities.

They are on the 2014 Inc 500 list of the fastest growing private companies in the United States: 1st fastest growing in Utah, 12th fastest growing in Healthcare, 86th fastest growing in the nation. They are also named to Utah Business Magazine’s 2014 top ten fastest growing companies, public or private, in the state.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012

Infineta Systems, the first and only provider of WAN optimization systems for Big Traffic workflows, today announced that its Infineta Data Mobility Switch (DMS) was selected as a finalist for Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.coms annual Product of the Year award in the network equipment category. Infineta is one of six finalists to be selected by a panel of judges out of hundreds of entries.

Infineta Systems is the first networking company to develop and market commercial WAN optimization systems that accelerate inter-data center WANs running at up to 10Gbps wire speeds. Powered by its Velocity Dedupe Engine, the Infineta DMS delivers unrivaled levels of throughput and scalability. The DMS serves as a critical building block for enterprises grappling with Big Traffic workflows such as high speed replication and remote backup, and cross-site storage and server virtualization, and Big Data.

With enterprise data sets reaching aggregate volumes in the 100s of terabytes to petabytes, and storage needs doubling every year, there is a dire need for scalable WAN optimization solutions to accelerate the large volumes of data being transferred between data centers.

Unlike other WAN optimization solutions, Infinetas DMS can reduce traffic footprints at multi-Gigabit speeds while incurring only microseconds of processing latency. The DMS is the only WAN optimization solution capable of supporting the next generation of advanced data center architectures. With the DMS, for example, customers can easily turn a 1Gbps WAN into a virtual 5Gbps link, leading to increased network throughput and guaranteed bandwidth availability. Not only is the DMS able to significantly improve the performance for all Big Traffic workflows traversing enterprise WAN networks, it is also a financially sound investment, with a typical return on investment in a sub-year timeframe.

We are very proud and honored that Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.coms panel of judges have recognized Infinetas flagship product, the DMS, and its capabilities, stated Haseeb Budhani, Vice President of Products at Infineta Systems. This recognition underscores the leadership approach Infineta has taken in understanding how enterprise IT strategies around data protection, virtualization and Big Data are leading to Big Traffic issues on the WAN, and how next-generation WAN optimization solutions can address these Big Traffic challenges.

About Infineta Systems

Based in San Jose, California, Infineta Systems is a privately-held, leading provider of WAN optimization systems for Big Traffic. The companys patent-pending Velocity Dedupe Engine delivers unprecedented levels of throughput, scalability and bandwidth capacity to support critical machine-scale workflows across the data center interconnect. Its flagship product, the Infineta Data Mobility Switch, accelerates multi-gigabit BCDR (business continuity/disaster recovery), cross-site virtualization, and Big Data traffic. The company is backed by Rembrandt Venture Partners, Alloy Ventures and North Bridge Venture Partners. For more information, visit
