In this episode I talk with Yan Ness, Chief Executive Officer  at Verge.io. Verge.io is a single piece of hyper-converged virtualization software that makes it easy to use existing resources to create secure multi-tenant private clouds. Verge.io provides a simpler way to virtualize data centers and end IT infrastructure complexity. The company’s Verge OS software is the first and only fully integrated virtual cloud software stack to build, deploy and manage virtual data centers. Verge-OS delivers significant capital savings, increased operational efficiencies, reduced risk, and rapid scalability. Yan and I talk about the shift from traditional de-coupled platforms like VMware and how even the Public Cloud is overly complex. Through simplicity of the stack, Verge.io is able to allow service providers and organizations function without the hassles associated with standard hardware platforms.

Verge.io was borne from YottaByte, founded in 2010 as a replacement for on-premises infrastructure. Eventually, YottaByte rebranded to Verge.io and is head quartered out of Greater Detroit Area, Great Lakes.
