New Storage Products Announced For Deep Learning, Business Continuity and Cloud Agility
- 18 successive quarters of revenue growth and 3 exabytes of global customer deployments
- Revolutionary InfiniSync appliance eliminates triple data center business continuity requirement for core banking and similar mission-critical enterprise environments
- Neutrix Cloud service enables real-time competition between public cloud providers for customer workloads
- InfiniGuard backup appliance provides multi-petabyte data protection with lightning fast restores
INFINIDAT, the market’s leading independent provider of multi-petabyte enterprise storage solutions, today announced four new products aimed at enterprises seeking to accelerate digital transformation and drive cost out of their IT infrastructure.
InfiniSync is a 450 pound, ballistically hardened data bunker appliance that is the world’s first solution for zero RPO synchronous data mirroring over virtually infinite distance, with zero latency impact.
“Traditional mission-critical computing requires synchronous mirroring, perhaps from lower Manhattan to a data bunker in northern New Jersey, and then asynchronous mirroring from the bunker to a disaster recovery site in Texas,” said Jacob Broido, Chief Product Officer at INFINIDAT. “InfiniSync eliminates the need for the New Jersey data center while ensuring all transactions make it to Texas under every imaginable scenario, including power and network failures and regional and rolling disasters.”
InfiniSync will be generally available on April 2, 2018.
Neutrix Cloudis a sovereign public storage cloud that offers high performance, multi-petabyte cloud file systems and block volumes that are simultaneously accessible from Google, Azure and AWS compute clouds. Neutrix Cloud is a pure OpEx service and can be employed standalone or with on-premises InfiniBox in hybrid cloud mode with a four second RPO (recovery point objective).
“Clients want flexibility and choice as they transform their organizations around cloud,” says Gregory Touretsky, Senior Director of Product Management at INFINIDAT. “Entrusting your data to a neutral storage provider enables next-generation cloud services and the ultimate in cloud agility.”
As an example of that flexibility, in addition to other public clouds, INFINIDAT Neutrix Cloud will be available to customers of VMware Cloud™ on AWS by end of April. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud.
“VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS,” said Mark Lohmeyer, vice president and general manager Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware. “Solutions such as INFINIDAT Neutrix Cloud enable IT teams to reduce cost, increase efficiency, and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We’re excited to work with partners such as INFINIDAT to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value.”
“For over 15 years, our customers have relied on Daymark solutions to deliver strategic, elegant, cost-effective solutions for their most critical enterprise infrastructure challenges. With INFINIDAT’s patented machine learning technologies and the introduction of Neutrix Cloud, we can adopt a sovereign storage approach that increases our ability to provide dependable, flexible and cost-effective solutions for public cloud workloads,” said Tim Donovan, CEO Daymark Solutions.
Neutrix Cloud will be generally available in US-East and US-West at the end of April 2018, with additional regions online in the future.
InfiniGuardis an application-aware data protection appliance that stores up to 20 petabytes of data and provides lightning fast restores. InfiniGuard is powered by the same Neural Cache software architecture that powers InfiniBox and supports a rich software ecosystem including Commvault, Veritas, Veeam, IBM Spectrum Protect, SAP, Oracle RMAN, VMware and Microsoft Exchange.
“Along with outrageous cost, the number one complaint about incumbent data protection solutions is poor restore performance,” said Shlomi Halevy, Senior Product Manager at INFINIDAT. “InfiniGuard delivers better than 10x the restore performance of the current market leader along with superior reliability and disruptive pricing.”
InfiniGuard is available immediately.
InfiniBoxF6212is a new InfiniBox model sporting 8.3 PB of capacity. F6212 runs the same, proven software and has the same features, performance and reliability that customers have come to love about the InfiniBox product family. With 8.3 PB of capacity per system, F6212 comes to market in response to customer demand for analytics, deep learning and industrial IoT use cases that require affordable, multi-petabyte storage with high reliability and sub-millisecond response times.
InfiniBox F6212 will be generally available on April 2, 2018.
Not All Product Portfolios Are Created Equal
In fact, most enterprise portfolios are disparate collections of products with incompatible features and APIs. This inconsistent mix of products adds complexity and inefficiency to customer environments and also adds excessive costs to vendors’ software development lifecycles that get passed on to customers. This is not the case with INFINIDAT. All of the products announced today are based on INFINIDAT’s common foundational software platform that includes:
- Neural Cache, INFINIDAT’s machine learning algorithm that maximizes performance by finding hidden connections in data access patterns.
- InfiniRAID, which along with the INFINIDAT RAS architecture, provides seven nines (99.99999%) of availability while ensuring data integrity at multi-petabyte scale.
- InfiniSnap, INFINIDAT’s innovative timestamp-based snapshot mechanism that provides infinite copy data management and high-performance replication with no performance impact.
What Analysts, Customers, and Partners are Saying
“INFINIDAT continues to be the exception to other hybrid flash array vendors. With this announcement, they have expanded their portfolio to include offerings for backup, DR, and multicloud — all powered by a single architecture,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president for storage at IDC. “INFINIDAT’s portfolio expansion allows them to address more customer challenges across diverse problem domains with less staff.”
“Performance at low cost is key in this market segment, and the INFINIDAT portfolio — with primary storage, business continuity, and cloud storage — covers more of the data lifecycle, delivering the necessary performance at a lower price point than the all-flash competition,” said Dan Hamilton, VP of Technology at Whipcord Ltd. “INFINIDAT’s machine-learning tech has given our cloud and Disaster Recovery as a Service offerings a performance advantage over the competition.”
“With INFINIDAT we’re able to focus on driving growth without worrying about our infrastructure,” said Jamie Orth, Vice President, Systems Manager at CenterState Bank. “INFINIDAT understands our need for scalable and predictable performance, and they consistently deliver innovative storage solutions that maintain performance and availability.”
“As an INFINIDAT partner, we’re excited to see this new portfolio, and we’re confident that our customers will be responsive to the benefits these new products provide,” said Bob Elliott, vice president, Storage at Mainline. “The INFINIDAT team continually uses its proven technology foundation to create products that solve more customer problems across the data lifecycle.”
“With INFINIDAT’s new portfolio products, we have more affordable and high-performing data storage solutions to offer our customers,” said Chuck Hawkins, President at Dynamix Group, Inc. “This expanded portfolio will continue to help our customers solve their IT pain points.”
“Engineering D.HUB has adopted a multi-sourcing strategy to support customers digital transformation that requires a provider partner supporting the right balance between on- and off-premises capabilities,” said Alessio Panni, Director, Business Development & Solutions at Engineering D.HUB. “With INFINIDAT’s portfolio, we achieve this balance and are able to address more of the data lifecycle pain points faster and cheaper than the all-flash alternatives.”
“With INFINIDAT’s platform, offering primary storage, backup, disaster recovery and cloud storage, we can address more pain points while managing different workloads and mission-critical applications. The decision to adopt an easy-to-manage, reliable, triple-redundant solution, that was also faster and cheaper than most of the all-flash alternatives, was easy,” said Alessandro Spigaroli, Head of IT Architecture and Technology Innovation at CEDACRI.
