“Big Data has become an important item on the agendas of enterprise CTOs and IT executives for 2012 and beyond. Infineta's technology is well positioned to help these organizations to ready their data centers and IT infrastructure to even begin to fully realize the benefits of Big Data,” said Bojan Simic, President and Principal Analyst of TRAC Research. “Kudos to Infineta for recognizing and helping to identify weak links before enterprises move into full scale production of Big Data.”

“Infineta has stepped up to demonstrate thought-leadership in identifying existing WAN infrastructures as the weak link that will prevent enterprises from fully realizing the potential of Big Data,” said Jim Bagley, Senior Analyst, Storage Strategies Now. “This report is a timely and relevant harbinger to what enterprises need to consider in readying their data centers and existing infrastructure for Big Data adoption.”

"New problems always require a rethinking of the solution from scratch. Big Data is one such problem staring at us. This new report illuminates the crossroads of Big Data and WAN optimization and lays out an insightful roadmap for the enterprise. Infineta is taking a leadership position in charting the course for companies to ready their existing enterprise storage systems and data centers to deal with Big Traffic,” said Arun Taneja, Founder, President and Consulting Analyst of Taneja Group.

"Big Data by its very nature requires new methods of approaching underlying infrastructure, because traditional methods simply won't work," said Stu Miniman, Senior Analyst with Wikibon. "As CIOs look to deploy technologies such as Hadoop, they are looking for guidance on how to maximize value from Big Data deployments. IRG and Infineta have identified and validated information that provides a useful roadmap to IT executives faced with new data-intensive environments."

“The journey to Big Data starts simply with Open Source software and a few virtual servers. Unsurprisingly, however, the journey to Big Data also requires careful system engineering to reach production capability,” said Peter Christy, co-founder of Internet Research Group. “Infineta is leading the industry in recognizing that Big Data’s disruptive growth in enterprise storage is bound to lead to Big Traffic for many enterprises. In providing guidance on how high-performance optimization technologies can be used to optimize Big Data traffic over the WAN, Infineta has emerged as a thought leader in WAN optimization.”
