Infinidat accelerates growth
Leading provider of enterprise-class storage solutions, Infinidat (www.infinidat.com) announces a 40% year-over-year bookings growth in 2021, including a 68% year-over-year increase in bookings in Q4 2021 thanks to the strength of three industry-acclaimed solutions – the InfiniBox® and InfiniBox™ SSA for primary storage and InfiniGuard® for modern data protection, disaster recovery, and cyber resilience.
“Infinidat achieved a strong trajectory of growth throughout 2021, delivering high-impact, enterprise storage solutions that provide powerful business and technical value based on our state-of-the-art innovation and best-in-class customer experience,” says Phil Bullinger, CEO, Infinidat. “It has been a transformational year for the company, and our expansion demonstrates our proven growth strategy and reflects the rapidly increasing demand for Infinidat’s software defined storage technology. The customer, partner, and product momentum we achieved in 2021 position Infinidat for continued success and growth.”
Achieving more than 130% year-on-year revenue growth in the company’s Fortune 100 customer base in 2021, now more than 25% of the Fortune 50 are Infinidat customers leveraging InfiniBox and InfiniGuard as their primary storage, modern data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity, and cyber resilience solutions.
“We are very happy with our decision to standardize on Infinidat’s family of enterprise storage systems,” explains Gopala Bunga, Senior Manager – IT Technical Services and Infrastructure Operations, Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA), an independent licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, and the largest insurer in the state of Hawaii. “As we are separated from the mainland, availability is absolutely critical for our operational success. We have relied on Infinidat's guarantees for years and plan to do so for many years to come. In fact, we have expanded from Infinidat's flagship InfiniBox to Infinidat's lightning fast backup and recovery appliance, InfiniGuard. We applaud and celebrate Infinidat's momentum and are proud to join them on their journey as partners.”
“The storage business is challenging. Data is the lifeblood of competitive advantage and making it available quickly, securely and cost effectively is a major undertaking. Over the past ten years, Infinidat has become a storage platform leader by delivering business value with a differentiated strategy,” says Dave Vellante, Co-founder, SiliconANGLE and Chief Analyst, Wikibon. “The company's double-digit growth underscores its traction and ability to respond to evolving customer requirements in areas such as cyber resilience. It’s good to see management accelerating Infinidat's original vision with an approach that has always been non-conventional. That's what it takes to compete with established incumbents in today’s market.”
“When Infinidat is growing, we are growing our business too,” says Bob Elliott, Vice President of Storage Sales, Mainline Information Systems. “We are winning together in the marketplace and exceeding customer expectations with high-value, large enterprise storage solutions like Infinidat. Substantially reducing our customers’ CAPEX and OPEX is done through storage consolidation and Infinidat’s extensive flexible consumption models. Opportunities to take the next step to 100% availability, coupled with cost savings, and including storage as part of every customer’s corporate cybersecurity strategy are very powerful reasons that we have been increasing our Infinidat partnership.”
In 2021, Infinidat was named ‘Leader’ for the fourth year running in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage, and named a 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice in the Gartner Peer Insights “Voice of the Customer”: Primary Storage for the third year in a row.
