SimpliVity CEO Doron Kempel to Speak at Best of Breed 2015 Conference

WESTBOROUGH, Mass.July 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SimpliVity CEO Doron Kempel, will join The Channel Company CEO Bob Faletra on stage for a keynote interview at The Channel Company's Best of Breed 2015 Conference. In the interview they will discuss the hyperconvergence revolution and how it is radically transforming infrastructure economics of the data center.

"The disruption of hyperconvergence is undeniable, and we're excited to hear Doron's perspective on the future of the industry," said Faletra. "We will examine the opportunities it presents to solution providers and how they can leverage the transformation for their competitive advantage."

Under Kempel's leadership and vision, SimpliVity successfully became the fastest IT infrastructure company to reach a $1+ billion valuation - accomplished after just 23 months of shipping its first hyperconverged infrastructure solution. Serving customers 100% through the channel, SimpliVity has grown sales bookings by nearly 250% year over year and increased employees by 35% this year, now totaling more than 550 in 21 countries.

"I'm honored to be speaking at The Channel Company's prestigious Best of Breed Conference," said Doron Kempel, CEO of SimpliVity, "The Channel Company recognizes that there's a fundamental shift occurring in the data center and this is an immense opportunity for strategic resellers. Hyperconvergence is not an incremental innovation; SimpliVity's unique data virtualization platform is enabling businesses to reimagine IT as a platform for driving business performance."
