INFINIDAT provides enterprise storage systems to companies around the world and in numerous vertical markets, such as finance, telecommunications, healthcare, insurance, IT and cloud service providers. INFINIDAT is focused on solving the problems storage buyers face when they are forced to choose between cost, capacity, functionality, reliability and performance.

BT’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering is being extended and is using INFINIDAT storage. INFINIDAT offers hybrid and high-end flash/disk arrays with seven “nines” availability. BT already offers IaaS with a storage component – a mix of storage types including enterprise grade, cloud-based object storage. We asked INFINIDAT what existing storage BT was not going to use for its next-generation IaaS. The reply was: “We can’t comment on what BT decides for their vendors for their IAAS services. They have chosen to add INFINIDAT as one of their storage suppliers and we are very honored by their choice. The choice of INFINIDAT is based upon our ability to provide 99.99999 per cent availability along with the rich feature set at a very aggressive price.” BT tested the INFINIDAT InfiniBox against numerous other storage products, looking at usability, functionality, performance and hypervisor integration. InfiniBox has already been installed in several of BT’s UK data centres to date.

To reduce storage deployment time and lower latency in VMware cloud environment. INFINIDAT announced that Brightsolid Online Innovation Limited (brightsolid), a UK cloud provider and part of the DC Thomson Group, has implemented the InfiniBox enterprise storage array to improve storage performance and reliability in its VMware cloud environment. Using InfiniBox, brightsolid reduced the time to deploy storage from hours to minutes, and lowered write latencies from 2-10 ms to below 1ms, thereby gaining a competitive edge in its market. “Our mission is to deliver technical innovation with personal service. By this, we mean finding the best way to apply the most effective technology so that we always surpass the expectations of our customers in the performance, reliability and price of our service,” said Richard Higgs, CEO, brightsolid. “InfiniBox has delivered the outstanding performance we require s we serve some of the most data-intensive industries, such as energy. Flexibility is one of our key priorities and the scalability of the InfiniBox platform meets this requirement, particularly where customers need to quickly spin resources up and down depending on business demand and budget.”

Meitav Dash Investments experienced problematic latency with its applications using NetApp filers before turning to newcomer INFINIDAT’s hyperscale hybrid storage. At a time when all-flash arrays are making strong inroads into data centers, Israel-based Meitav Dash Investments solved its storage performance bottleneck with a hybrid array. Meitav installed INFINIDAT’s InfiniBox to accelerate the performance of mission-critical applications running in several buildings. The INFINIDAT storage uses a large flash cache — up to 86 TB — to reduce latency in its arrays. Built for enterprises and hyperscale workloads, INFINIDAT uses hard disk drives behind the flash cache. Meitav, which manages investment portfolios, mutual and pension funds, found the previous latency unacceptable, said CIO Gil Tsabar. The Tel Aviv-based company needed a storage service that provided faster response times to clients.

INFINIDAT, the enterprise data storage solutions provider, has achieved a massive 213% increase in year over year sales growth for the first quarter of 2016, according to a new report. According to the vendor, shipments of the InfiniBox enterprise storage array increased by 300% versus Q1 2015, and now amounts to 422 petabytes worldwide.
Crucial to this success was the vendor’s channel partners. In Q1 the company continued to expand its reseller and distributor ecosystem, and capturing close to half of its revenue from the channel. In the quarter INFINIDAT signed agreements with additional resellers and distributors, increasing its list of global channel partners to 204.

It doesn’t take a lifetime to build a super valuable company. As this list shows, it’s possible to go from $0 to $16 billion in valuation in just under than five years. Business Insider analyzed Pitchbook data to find the startups based in the US who reached the $1 billion mark in that timeframe – in other words, the youngest crop of the so-called “unicorn” companies. Here are the 17 privately-held startups that have created businesses worth more than a billion dollars in the last five years.

Increasing storage volume to 3.3PB. INFINIDAT, a provider of enterprise storage solutions, announced that Triple C Cloud Computing Ltd, Israel’s cloud services provider, has replaced all of its production storage systems with the InfiniBox enterprise storage array. The implementation increases Triple C’s storage volume to 3,300TB, enabling the company to expand its operations and accelerate the transition of customers to the cloud while improving overall storage performance. Triple C implemented InfiniBox storage arrays at two sites: the company’s advanced facility in Petah Tikva and its secondary facility in Haifa. Customer data replication and backup is included at both facilities.

Infinidat, founded by Moshe Yanai of Symmetrix and XIV fame, provides probably the most reliable and available monolithic primary data storage array in the industry, with seven nines reliability and low latency access. Its business is continuing to grow and revenues in the recently-ended quarter were the second largest it’s ever recorded. Chief product officer Jacob Broido said reliability at petabyte scale is critical for Infinidat’s customers. “We’re constantly over-delivering on their expectations.” He said the focus is on further developing its existing array product while keeping an eye on emerging technologies that could enable it to be a stronger offering in the future.

INFINIDAT, the enterprise data storage solutions provider, is expanding operations globally and opening offices in key regions, including APAC. The company is also planning to more than triple the office space of its U.S. headquarters in Massachusetts. According to the company, the global expansion is a direct result of the increasing universal demand for InfiniBox, the company’s flagship enterprise data storage array. “Enterprise companies in every market face challenges posed by growing volumes of data, and they’re seeking efficient ways to manage and utilise that data to its full advantage,” says Moshe Yanai, INFINIDAT founder and CEO.

Some major moves afoot at INFINIDAT, the unicorn founded by an EMC legend that’s now trying to crush the Hopkinton-based storage giant. So far INFINIDAT has mostly been an Israeli operation, but the next-gen data storage firm will soon be expanding their U.S. headquarters in Massachusetts, with a new office and a number of hires. The new HQ will be on Totten Pond Road in Waltham, will have 23,000 square feet and will open up in June. It’ll replace two existing offices in Needham (5,900 square feet) and Waltham, and the staff this year is expected to grow from 35 employees to 50-70 people by year’s end, executives say.
