SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire -07/12/12)- Virsto® Software, an innovative provider of VM-centric storage hypervisor software, today announced its selection as an AlwaysOn Global 250 winner. The AlwaysOn Global 250 recognizes leadership among industry peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the Global Silicon Valley. Virsto was hand selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
Virsto was named in the 'Cloud and Infrastructure' category, a list highlighting the 36 most visionary and market-aware companies. The company was selected from thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. AlwaysOn's recognition of Virsto offers significant validation for its innovative storage hypervisor software, which offers a fundamentally more efficient and seamless approach for storage in virtual environments.
Just as the hypervisor did for servers, Virsto delivers new levels of performance, efficiency, and agility for storage in virtualized environments with its storage hypervisor software. Traditionally, provisioning storage in virtualized environments required a choice between production-level performance and efficient storage capacity consumption. With its hypervisor-agnostic, software approach to VM storage, only Virsto combines performance and efficiency to fundamentally transform the economics of storage for VMs.
"The AlwaysOn Global 250 award recognizes the Virsto team for innovation and for the potential to bend the value curve of storage in virtualized environments," said Mark Davis, CEO of Virsto. "We congratulate the other companies that join us on this year's list and thank AlwaysOn for recognizing the unique benefits that our purpose built, VM-centric storage hypervisor delivers for any virtualized workload, with any SSD or block based storage."
Virsto Software and the AlwaysOn Global 250 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's 10th annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum on July 23, 2012.
