“Avere is thrilled and honored to be recognized among some of the world’s leading technology companies,” said Ron Bianchini, CEO of Avere Systems. “Avere achieved record bookings in 2013, and this recognition validates our efforts to continuously develop solutions that help our customers improve the efficiency and performance of their storage infrastructure.”
