NIMBOXX ran away with the win at this week's 2014 Structure Launchpad
Competition, securing the most
People's Choice Award votes for its data center-in-a-box solution.
Competing against seven other finalists selected
from a pool of more than 60 applicants worldwide, NIMBOXX CMO Trent
Fitz presented the company's unique approach to delivering the 'atomic
unit' of the software-defined data center - and putting the hyper-scale
model of computing within reach for companies of all sizes.
"Everyone is talking about the software-defined data center, but the
reality is, few organizations have the technical expertise or resources
to buid it themselves," said Fitz.
"We've seized this opportunity to provide a single, converged system
that delivers extreme simplicity, screaming performance and dramatically
reduced costs. In the words of one of our favorite customers, our 'Kung
Fu is strong,' and we're thrilled that the audience at Structure
enthusiastically agreed with them."
In related news, NIMBOXX today also
announced the general availability of its all-in-one solution for
software-defined data centers, as well at $12 million in Series A
funding from SMC Holdings.
The annual Structure event is Gigaom's flagship conference that focuses
on the future of cloud computing and Internet infrastructure. For the
past eight years, it has gathered the most influential speakers, buyers
and vendors for two days of discussion, reporting and debate.
