Infinidat extends ecosystem
Leading provider of multi-petabyte data storage solutions, Infinidat (www.infinidat.com/en), announces support for VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster (vMSC) with Infinidat InfiniBox Active-Active Replication, providing 100% application and data availability for virtualized environments.
“This new commitment to the VMware ecosystem is an exciting next step in our relationship, which has served joint customers for more than five years now,” says Erik Kaulberg, vice president at Infinidat. “Customers who want to deploy vMSC can now get all of the benefits of Infinidat’s scale, performance, and 100% availability for their most mission-critical workloads.”
InfiniBox Active-Active replication achieves zero RPO and zero RTO – enabling mission-critical business services to keep operating even through a complete site failure. InfiniBox Active-Active replication is not only faster from a latency perspective than other vendors that offer true active-active synchronous replication capability – it also provides highly predictable performance for mission-critical workloads. For applications that are essential to businesses, predictable performance is almost as critical as high availability – and Infinidat is able to provide both.
The work extends Infinidat’s longstanding relationship with VMware. Roughly two thirds of Infinidat’s 6 exabytes of deployed storage involve VMware environments. This latest integration opens up vMSC to new potential customers who might not have implemented this type of solution yet, due to issues with performance, scalability or cost.
VMware recognizes the importance of high availability for mission-critical applications,” says Pete Chargin, senior director, vSphere Platform, VMware. “Our customers around the world have standardized on vSphere for their most important applications and utilize vMSC to reduce downtime while enabling high performance. Infinidat’s vMSC reference architecture is one of the solutions that fills that need effectively for multi-petabyte enterprise environments, optimizing the value of vMSC for the higher end of the enterprise market.”
The work with VMware is the latest in a series of advancements Infinidat has announced in its solutions ecosystem.
