With its virtualized infrastructure and global data architecture, SimpliVity's flagship product OmniCube is making big strides in the marketplace. The vendor said it has seen broad adoption over the past year for OmniCube, which uses "Lego-like" building blocks to make for easier adoption and scalability.

"SimpliVity is one of the biggest innovations in enterprise computing since VMware," said John Doerr, General Partner of Kleiner Perkins, and early backer of Sun Microsystems, Netscape, Google, and Amazon, in a press release.
