NASHUA, N.H., Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Plexxi, a pioneer in converged network infrastructure, announced today that the company has received a funding investment from GV (formerly Google Ventures). GV's investment in Plexxi will enable the company to continue to scale its networking product offerings and company operations to meet the needs of the emerging cloud builder community and drive adoption of software-defined architecture in datacenters.
"Plexxi takes an innovative approach to high performance networking infrastructure," said Rich Miner, General Partner at GV. "Plexxi's platform has evolved at a rapid pace, and the company's networking infrastructure products give companies the tools they need to maintain large scale networks that are more agile and efficient."
"GV invests in companies that have their eye on the future, offer disruptive innovation and drive market change," said Rich Napolitano, CEO of Plexxi.

We are thrilled to have GV join our investor team and become a key partner in this huge market opportunity."
Cloud Builders and Cloud Architects are transforming IT by looking at applications and data requirements from the perspective of business goals, not static technology silos. By prioritizing applications over infrastructure, a Plexxi network will become an invisible utility to meet dynamic business requirements.

With that goal in mind, Plexxi Switches are scalable, dynamic and responsive, Plexxi Control software is intelligent, automated and application-driven and Plexxi Connect ensures that the integration happens for workflow, workload and infrastructure. Together, these key products create a breakthrough network infrastructure platform that is agile, scalable and flexible meeting Cloud Builder needs and business requirements.
