Net3 selects Infinidat

US cloud service provider (CSP) Net3 Technology selects Infinidat ( to provide the enterprise storage infrastructure with 100% availability, unmatched performance, and a flexible cost structure underpinning the cloud provider’s managed backup and disaster recovery services.

“The key challenge that Infinidat solved for us was our need for reliable storage in a consumption model that would grow as we grow,” says Ryan Walker, Chief Information Officer, Net3 Technology.  “The uptime, availability, performance, ease of administration, and flexible consumption models that Infinidat delivers are unmatched compared to the brands that we had run previously.  With Infinidat, we’re able to operate our cloud services business more cost-effectively and with substantially more confidence.”

Prior to installing Infinidat, the performance of Net3’s legacy arrays from the former incumbents were only 130,000 IOPS.  After switching to Infinidat’s InfiniBox®, performance increased by more than 15X to 2 million IOPS.  “We switched to Infinidat because they solved a lot of the issues that other upper-right Magic Quadrant storage providers have,” adds Walker.  “Our main storage obstacle in recent years had been keeping up with the pace of growth while ensuring performance and availability to our customers.  Infinidat has solved all of the pain points that we’ve had with previous storage providers through unmatched performance and availability.  We wouldn’t be where we are as a company without Infinidat – I only wish we had moved to Infinidat sooner.”

To eliminate the need to put out a large, up-front capital expenditure, Net3 adopted one of Infinidat’s flexible consumption, pay-as-you-grow models – ideally suited for CSPs.   The financial benefit to Net3 and their customers is that they are not paying for storage that they are not using.  This fixed the previous issue that Net3 had with the shortcomings of monolithic storage arrays from other vendors.

“Uptime and reliability are mission critical for CSPs, like Net3 Technology,” says Steve Sullivan, Chief Revenue Officer, Infinidat.  “Our 100% availability, unmatched real-world application performance, and autonomous automation de-risk enterprise storage, making Infinidat’s industry acclaimed solutions the preferred choice of cloud service providers, managed service providers, and managed hosting providers.  With Infinidat, Net3 has transformed their customers’ experience, achieved zero downtime, and made enterprise storage truly transparent."
