CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Infinio, a market leader in storage acceleration for virtualized data centers, has been recognized as part of the Red Herring Top 100 Global awards. The list highlights the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, as announced today by Red Herring.
"We're honored to be named to this prestigious list, and are excited to be nearing the end of a great year for the company," said Arun Agarwal, Infinio co-founder and CEO. "We're set up for even greater success in 2015, and appreciate Red Herring's recognition of our achievements so far."
Red Herring's Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Infinio embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Infinio should be proud of its accomplishment."
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
