Core DataCloud selects Infindat
To support the growing customer demand for its cloud-based disaster recovery and backup services business, Core DataCloud (https://coredatacloud.com) has selected Infinidat Infinibox® enterprise storage system from Infinidat (www.infinidat.com), the market’s leading provider of multi-petabyte data storage solutions.
The decision to invest in an Infinidat storage array, providing 1PB of capacity, will deliver the flexibility and agility that Core DataCloud requires to accommodate existing growth and allow for future customer demands. Key criteria met by Infinidat during the competitive technical evaluation included an easy-to-use interface, minimal training for operational staff, business-critical reliability, guarantees of seven nines (99.99999%) availability, and ultra-high performance and scalability.
“Market demand for a ‘cloud first’ strategy is gaining momentum,” says Sharad Saggar, managing director at Core DataCloud. “Our decision to select Infinidat was not only based on its compelling commercial proposition but also the company’s capabilities in supporting our business growth. This is to extend the portfolio of hosting services we offer without incurring any unforeseen investment costs.”
“The challenge for enterprise IT organizations and managed service providers is to exceed service level objectives while radically lowering the cost and complexity of storage operations,” added Eran Brown, EMEA CTO, Infinidat.
“Infinidat was designed and built to manage even the most demanding of workloads. The fact that Core DataCloud has chosen to put Infinidat at the heart of its business is a strong endorsement of the capabilities, and business benefits, that our technology can deliver.”
Core DataCloud had historically used a blend of storage solutions to manage and protect customer data. However, its detailed market assessment as part of a strategic system upgrade revealed that Infinidat would be a suitable replacement in totality, and the technology implemented would be more than capable of supporting Core DataCloud’s hosting service today and into the future.
