Infinidat unifies Infinibox storage with NAS

The NAS capability lets customers run both block and file storage in a single rack.

By CBR Staff Writer

Data storage firm Infinidat has added two new capabilities to its InfiniBox storage systems and unveiled a multi-petabyte scale unified storage with free network-attached storage (NAS) software upgrade.

The company added NAS capability to the InfiniBox to let customers run both block and file storage in a single rack, and introduced a high-performance version of asynchronous replication.

Infinidat said the NAS capability supports a single automated management console; zero latency; non-blocking high performance snapshots; thin, smart clones; self-healing high-availability; hybrid disk/SSD infrastructure and non-disruptive upgrades.

The InfiniBox F2000 starts at 250TB usable capacity in an 18U configuration. It addressees the requirements of businesses that have data volumes in the sub-petabyte range.

InfiniBox models are scalable up to 2PB of usable storage capacity in a single 19-inch/42U rack. All InfiniBox storage arrays are based upon the Infinidat Storage Architecture.

Infinidat founder and CEO Moshe Yanai said: "Businesses depend on having rapid, ‘always on’ access to their data, as that data is critical to their survival.

"With the growth of digitized data outpacing the growth of storage capacity, the market for storage continues to see rapid growth.

"However, the cost and complexity of storage are forcing buyers to constantly make trade-offs. To solve this problem, Infinidat has brought to market InfiniBox, a new generation of highly reliable, scalable, fast and efficient storage systems."

Earlier this year, Infinidat raised $150m in a new round of funding, increasing its valuation to $1.2bn.

Infinidat has filed over 100 software patents and its InfiniBox solution allows consumers to store about 2 petabytes of data in a single rack.
