The IT Pro Silicon Valley Start-Up Tour

We've been on tour in Silicon Valley learning about potentially game-changing technologies from some exciting start-ups. Here's what we found...

IT directors often default to the big vendors when considering what products to deploy.

Just because they're more visible, however, doesn't mean the giants have the best offerings.

We headed to Silicon Valley to meet some hot start-up companies that believe they have technologies that could drastically improve business IT infrastructure.

They told us about what they can offer and about their own plans for the future. Take a look at what these small companies could do for your business:

Day One

StorSimple

With products that can be set up in ten minutes, StorSimple provides disaster recovery, primary storage and data protection in one highly affordable box.

Arkeia

If you need to move data quickly from your data centre to the cloud or any other off-site storage, this clever company might have what it takes.

Day Two

A10 Networks

Want some supplementary network tech which will deliver your apps fast? This successful start-up could be what you're looking for.

Solix

With plenty of useless data residing in business IT departments across the world, this young vendor believes it knows what to do with that redundant information.
