Violin Memory®, Inc., (NYSE:VMEM), a leading provider of all-flash storage arrays and appliances delivering application solutions for the enterprise, today announced that the company was voted by IT professionals as the Innovation Leader in the first annual IT Brand Pulse leader survey covering InfiniBand All-Flash Storage Arrays.

Violin was selected as the Innovation Leader.”

Hundreds of global enterprises accelerate databases, applications, and business decisions with Violin All Flash Arrays, while realizing the transformational economic benefits all-flash solutions deliver to their enterprise. Violin all-flash storage arrays feature the unique Flash Fabric Architecture™ that harnesses the power of flash to deliver industry-leading performance and resiliency in a compact form factor allowing Violin management and optimization from the application layer all the way through the stack down to the individual flash.

These game-changing features make the Violin Memory 6000, and now the Concerto™ 7000, the storage solutions of choice for high performance, real-time decision-making business applications with stringent service level requirements.
