Infinidat raises cyber resilience bar
A series of significant enhancements on its InfiniBox® and InfiniGuard® platforms sees Infinidat (www.infinidat.com) reinforce its leadership position for primary storage, modern data protection, and cyber resilience with the expansion of InfiniSafe® capabilities to give guaranteed rapid recovery from a cyberattack, a greener data center with reduced enterprise power and cooling needs, and lower total cost of ownership by double digits beyond what is currently possible with existing systems.
“Infinidat is setting the standard for enterprise storage,” says Phil Bullinger, CEO, Infinidat. “We listened to the challenges customers in the enterprise and cloud service provider markets have and are solving those challenges by enhancing our InfiniBox and InfiniGuard platforms with additional best-in-class capabilities, rock-solid guarantees, and an even greater ability to improve cyber resilience and optimize TCO. Delivering an unmatched experience and exceeding our customers’ expectations continue to define and drive Infinidat, and with our single software defined storage architecture across our family of platforms enabling a new suite of features and functions, there has never been a better time to upgrade or bring in our industry acclaimed enterprise storage solutions.”
The new enhancements include: expanded InfiniSafe capabilities on InfiniGuard with a larger capacity for a dedicated InfiniSafe repository of up to 35PB, and a full backup repository of up to 50PB of effective capacity as well as doubling extendable retention of InfiniSafe immutable snapshots up to 60 days; new cyber storage resilience guarantees on InfiniGuard with guaranteed recoverability of InfiniSafe immutable snapshots within 20 minutes or less guaranteed, regardless of the size of the snapshot; and increased capacity and expanded VMware capabilities on InfiniBox to improve return on investment (ROI) and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 36%. In addition, to meet sustainability requirements and fulfill the promise of “green IT” the enhancements also see a reduction of power usage by 42% per effective PB.
“Data protection and cyber security are among the top priorities for enterprises worldwide,” says Phil Goodwin, Research Vice President, Infrastructure Software Platforms, IDC. “End-users continue to search for solutions that can raise the bar in providing full cyber storage protection with confidence. By expanding upon Infinidat’s primary storage guarantees with the launch of its InfiniGuard cyber storage resilience guarantees, the company now offers a comprehensive suite of guarantees that can provide a significant value-add to their customers.”
“Infinidat has done it again, giving us the ability to dramatically lower the total cost of ownership for our customers' enterprise storage environments,” adds Stan Wysocki, President, Mark III Systems. “Coming out with storage solutions that have a significantly higher capacity, yet the same footprint, while simultaneously improving cyber storage resilience, has immediate benefits for substantial CAPEX and OPEX reductions and a more cyber secure environment for our customers. We love the direction that Infinidat is taking its solutions, and we love the guarantees, which make the company not only our vendor, but also our partner.”
“The challenges and risks of cyberattacks are top of the agenda in enterprise data center environments and the new Infinidat cyber storage resilience capabilities − with InfiniSafe on InfiniGuard, enable us to offer a solution based on innovative technology from one of the leading enterprise storage solutions providers,” explains John Greenwood, Chief Strategy Officer, Virtual Effect.
“In the event of a cyberattack the key is to mitigate downtime, with recovery of the immutable data fundamental to getting an organization operational and online. Infinidat’s new InfiniSafe cyber storage guarantees for InfiniGuard ensure both the immutability of InfiniSafe snapshots and guarantees swift recoverability of those immutable snapshots.”
