GigaOm names Infinidat leader
IT analyst firm GigaOm names Infinidat (www.infinidat.com) as a Leader and an Outperformer in primary storage for large enterprises in its ‘GigaOm Radar: Primary Storage for Large Enterprises’ report.
“Primary storage for large enterprises has changed in a transition phase characterized by the fact that flexibility, ease of use and cost no longer have to be sacrificed for high performance, availability and resiliency the way they were in past years,” explains GigaOm’s analysts Max Mortillaro and Arjan Timmerman. “Infinidat focuses on massive capacity and scalability with its rack-scale solution that can scale up to 17PB of effective storage in a single rack with InfiniBox and provide the latency as low as 35 microseconds with the InfiniBox SSA II.”
Based on GigaOm’s independent analysis, the report adds, “InfiniBox platforms also offer unified storage and provide high performance file support for SMB and NFS. The core software defined storage technology – InfuzeOS – is mature and the architecture is based on multi-patents for the software managing data across the array and taking advantage of a layer of DRAM.”
“Infinidat is the most innovative enterprise storage solution provider among the eight vendors in the GigaOm Radar report on primary storage, earning our distinction along the lines of ‘Innovation’ and ‘Platform Play’ on the analyst chart,” says Eric Herzog, Chief Marketing Officer, Infinidat. “The significant expansion of Infinidat’s solution portfolio for enterprises over the past year with the successful market launch of our next-generation solid-state array has reinforced our leadership position and gives large enterprises a viable alternative to the older-generation vendors with more complex offerings. What we are doing with storage-as-a-service, AIOps integration, NVMe support and cyber storage resilience - all at considerably lower CAPEX and OPEX – are game-changing for the enterprise market.”
