CEO: Steve O'Donnell
GreenBytes was formed in 2007, but the Providence, R.I.-based company is making a name for itself this year with its virtual desktop optimization technology. In April the company earned $7 million in Series C funding from Generation Investment Management LLP and Battery Ventures. In addition, GreenBytes strengthened its leadership team with the addition of Dell and Oracle veteran Mark Hardy as vice president of sales for EMEA. The company is now focused on expanding its IO-Offload vIO appliances through technology alliances with other vendors as well as channel partners.
