HiveIO Challenges IT Infrastructure Status Quo by Delivering Simplicity, Increases Customers, Partners, and Staff

March 19, 2019

HOBOKEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 19, 2019--HiveIO Inc., a company that transforms commodity data center equipment into a software-defined virtualization platform, empowered 100 percent of its customers to grow their footprint in 2018 by eliminating countless IT challenges, such as proprietary hardware requirements, complex licensing, and vendor bloat.

“We saw an area of white space within the industry: a way to make IT infrastructure work for you instead of layering on more specialists and dealing with multiple vendors. And the market was ready for it,” said Dan Newton, HiveIO CEO. “As consumer and partner needs grow, we see opportunities within new verticals, such as education, healthcare, banking, and finance. As a result, we are advancing artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual desktop infrastructure, and virtualization in our Hive Fabric solution.”

In 2018, HiveIO achieved milestones including:

  • Four Hive Fabric software updates; the latest version included a revitalized user interface for IT managers to see the entire data center from one screen
  • A 35 percent increase in Hive Fabric usage by customers
  • An 18 percent increase in new partners, including Arrow Electronics EMEA
  • A 30 percent increase in overall staff with a 60 percent increase in sales staff

HiveIO’s hyperconverged fabric (HCF) solution, Hive Fabric™, is the industry’s first zero-layer, hardware- and vendor-agnostic solution that is designed around an AI-ready message bus, removing the need for separate management infrastructure and allowing IT leaders to focus on driving tangible business value. Businesses and organizations demand high-performing, scalable technology for data centers, and HiveIO answers this need by delivering an IT environment that benefits from economies of scale and solves problems in real time.

To bolster HiveIO’s success and pursue its strategic roadmap, George Nealon joins the team as Vice President of Global Sales/CRO. With more than 20 years of global enterprise sales experience and API integration from IBM, Apigee, and more, Nealon will play an instrumental role in crafting mutually beneficial customer relationships.

“HiveIO provides a unique opportunity to be part of something very special – to join a collection of talented, passionate professionals pulling together to deliver a disruptive solution,” said Nealon. “My goal is to take a value-based approach for our customers. It’s not just about the features and capabilities; it’s about the personal and business benefits that can be derived from a partnership with HiveIO. We’re changing how technology teams think about virtualization and applications, end user computing and mobility, and how these are delivered.”
