HotLink

Santa Clara, Calif.

Category: Virtualization

Top Executive: Lynn LeBlanc, founder and CEO

Virtualization management startup HotLink is a VMware partner that launched its first product at VMworld last year, but its goal is to help customers use non-VMware hypervisors. In March, HotLink launched a channel program around its flagship SuperVisor product, which allows VMware vCenter to natively support hypervisors from Microsoft, Citrix and Red Hat. Sales of SuperVisor have been triple what HotLink expected when it launched the product last year, CEO Lynn LeBlanc told CRN in March.
