Just a short post to point out that I updated the VVol section in the HA Deepdive. If you downloaded it, make sure to download the latest version. Note that I have added a version number to the intro and a changelog at the end so you can see what changes. Also, I recommend subscribing to it, as I plan to do some more updates in the upcoming months. For the update I’ve been playing with a Nimble (virtual) array all day today and it allowed me to create some cool screenshots of how HA works in a VVol environment. I was also seriously impressed by how easy it was to setup the Nimble (virtual) array and how simple VVol was to configure for them. Not just that, but the number of policy options Nimble exposes, I was amazed. Below is just an example of some of the things you can configure!
Last Startup News Flash of the year, part 11… It is relatively short this time, I am guessing everyone is wrapping up before the holiday season really starts. I know I am!
I want to congratulate Nimble on their very successful IPO. They introduced their stock at the price of $21.00 per share and are now at $ 35.00 after just a couple of days of trading. Not sure why, but for whatever reason I haven’t written about Nimble yet in-depth, personally I’ve been impressed by what they offer. If you look at the cost of their solution and hold it against quality and features they offer I am sure you will be impressed as well, definitely one of those companies I would be talking to when looking to invest in a new storage system! Once again, congrats to all involved on the successful IPO.
Infinio just announced a new round of funding. 12 million for Series B is not bad if you ask me. Investors include: Bessemer Venture Partners, Highland Capital Partners, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Osage University Partners (a partner of Columbia University, home of Infinio’s roots). After having recently announced GA of their 1.0 product I guess it is full speed ahead with this new injection. Congrats and looking forward to the upcoming releases.
That was it for this year with regards to startups news , hopefully back next year with more Startup News!
