Virident Repost of 3-year old Gartner Report?
Last night Virident posted a tweet with a 3-year old Gartner report about the dangers of going sole source. Obviously they believe that Fusion-io is the “sole source” of danger. I think Virident fails to realize that OCZ/Marvell has snuck up on them and perhaps overtaken them — at least on the sales/marketing front.
Once thought of as the natural competition to Fusion-io, Virident took down a really nice C round of financing in November 2011 but has not been heard of since except for a few job postings and the occasional tweet.
The message “We’re better than Fusion-io” seems to be what Virident is all about these days.
