Infinidat Celebrates Awards for Product Innovation, Channel Expansion and Leadership

If someone had told you in 2020 that Infinidat would go on to win one of the “Storage Product of the Year” accolades, a 5-star rating for its channel partner program, and top honors for its visionary leadership in the channel and marketing, would you have believed them? I am pleased to report that it has all happened – and more. What a start to 2022!

In February, TechTarget awarded InfiniBox™ SSA enterprise system the Silver award in the Storage Product of the Year disk and disk subsystem category. This is a top honor, and it highlights how InfiniBox SSA is one of the leading enterprise storage arrays on the market today. This follows on the 2021 Bronze award from TechTarget for the original InfiniBox® solution.

The InfiniBox SSA platform features the power of Infinidat’s industry-acclaimed Neural Cache software paired with groundbreaking performance, taking it up to the next level with the addition of all-flash to the InfiniBox family. This enterprise storage solution offers a differentiated software-defined storage architecture that spans the entire Infinidat portfolio and consistently delivers outstanding performance for the most demanding enterprise workloads with its sophisticated use of DRAM, autonomous automation, ultra-high performance and availability, and lower total cost of ownership.

Adding to the excitement, StorageNewsletter awarded Infinidat the “2022 Best Storage Product of the Year” Award in the Subsystems category. This recognition, which was given in January, is due to Infinidat’s unwavering ability to exceed customer’s storage needs, reduce risk and overall cost.

To accompany the storage product innovation that is winning these awards, Infinidat has built a highly competitive, multi-dimensional channel partner program. We rely on the channel for more than 90% of our revenue, and we have been consistent in our commitment to partners, providing them with training, tools and an online portal.

As a result of the transformation of our channel program, CRN, the brand of The Channel Company, has designated the Infinidat Channel Partner Program with a 5-Star rating. Infinidat’s new status is featured in CRN’s 2022 Partner Program Guide. The 5-star rating is achieved only by select vendors that deliver the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs to help push growth, positive change, and competitive differentiation. We’re very proud of this accomplishment.

This highest rating in the industry for a channel partner program reinforces that Infinidat is providing a world-class program for the channel, positioning solution providers for optimal success, and providing cutting-edge sales and technical enablement of partners. We have worked hard to build up our channel partner program to the strength it has today.

In addition, as a C-level executive driving go-to-market strategies and implementation for Infinidat, I was named “2022 Channel Chief” by CRN for the second time in my career. This award is given to influential leaders who continue to shape the IT channel with innovative strategies, programs, and partnerships. I am honored to receive this exclusive award and continue to drive new opportunities for channel partners to increase their business, revenue, and profits. The channel is key to Infinidat’s go-to-market strategy, and I am proud of the Infinidat team and all we have accomplished together.

As we have elevated Infindat’s profile and industry acclaim since last year, I have had the honor of being awarded OnCon Icon’s “Top 10 Marketer in the World” Award. This was truly a high honor and humbling to discover that I was nominated and voted for by my peers and the public.

Overall, these significant awards speak to Infinidat’s focus on customer value and our innovative and disruptive technologies within enterprise storage solutions. Infinidat’s strength is unparalleled, offering excellent primary storage solutions with InfiniBox and unmatched modern data protection with InfiniGuard. We will continue to make our exceptional mark in the storage industry.
