NASHUA, N.H., Dec. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Plexxi, a pioneer in converged network infrastructure, announced today that Dell has selected it for Founders 50, a select cohort of startups that are disrupting their respective industries and poised to become household names. Dell recognized Plexxi and the other startups on this list based on each company's high growth and impressive use of innovative technology solutions.
According to a statement by Dell, the Founders 50 initiative is part of Dell for Entrepreneurs, and builds on Dell's commitment to empowering entrepreneurs around the world by providing them with the tools, technology and resources they need to be successful. This is Dell's third Founders 50 cohort.
Plexxi's innovative technology is founded on the belief that the future of IT is dramatically changing as the industry moves towards the third era of IT. As the industry transitions into the next era of IT, data and application growth are forcing cloud data center network architectures to change radically.
This shift is causing an increased emphasis on integrable tools rather than a focus on individual infrastructure components. Now more than ever, Cloud Architects are tasked with delivering agility and cost savings through automation, resource elasticity, workflow integration, data and application mobility.
"Dell's Founders 50 cohort recognizes companies that are leading their respective industries – in growth, innovation and disruption," said Rich Napolitano. "We're proud to be a part of Dell's Founders list and are committed to providing Cloud Builders with the technology they need to make their cloud infrastructure agile, dynamic and future proof.
Dell's announcement comes on the heels of the launch of Plexxi's Control 2.2 software and Plexxi Switch 3, which each provide new tools for Cloud Builders looking to make their technology more agile.
