“While we’re very proud that this product has already won awards, the most important thing is how well it works for real-world customers,” said Infinio chief executive Arun Agarwal.

Infinio Accelerator tackles a common problem for businesses: Their networks slow down as their storage space fills up. The solution is often to buy another server.

When I met Agarwal in August, he explained that in many cases additional storage space is actually unnecessary. The trick is to make a business network’s existing storage system run more efficiently.

That’s what Infinio Accelerator aims to do. At $499, the software could be a cheaper alternative to buying more hardware.

For the curious, Infinio is hosting a live product demonstration and question-and-answer session at 3 p.m. today.
