“Do you want to pledge allegiance to a single public-cloud provider forever?” asked Erik Kaulberg (pictured), vice president at Infinidat Ltd. “If the answer to that is no or if there’s any hesitation in that answer, then you need to be considering services that go beyond the walled gardens of individual public clouds.”

We spoke with Infinidat CTO Brian Carmody about the vendor's NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) timeline, how it competes with large all-flash vendors and why InfiniBox resembles Facebook storage architecture.

In this episode, we take a deep dive into the history and current state of enterprise data storage with industry analyst and Silicon Valley veteran Stanley Zaffos who is now currently SVP of Product Marketing at Infinidat.

Performance is another area that can take a big hit with massive data sets, but that is unacceptable in today’s environment. “Millisecond performance is no longer good enough. Performance needs to be sub-millisecond,” said Doc D’Errico, chief marketing officer of Infinidat. “You need storage capable of performing at microseconds in order to get to that sub-millisecond latency.”

Containers and Kubernetes pave the way to a more competitive storage environment, keeping pricing pressure on incumbent storage vendors by reducing the strength of vendor lock-ins, said Stanley Zaffos, senior vice president of product marketing at data storage provider Infinidat. Containers and Kubernetes can also help improve staff efficiency and productivity by automating provisioning and deprovisioning, as well as simplifying storage management by removing server-specific application dependencies.

Every business would do well to follow the Scout Motto when it comes to data’s disaster backup and recovery. Preparedness is essential in a computing environment where it is “when,” not “if,” disaster occurs. But no matter how much money is thrown at data protection, bad guys and bad weather alike can strike without warning.

Coupling diverse applications with appropriate storage can be a drama-filled matchmaking game. There’s always a better, faster storage product debuting to tempt customers away from the tried and true. But the performance of all-flash or cloud storage may not justify the cost for some apps. How can companies get their storage straight for legacy and modern apps in hybrid and multicloud environments?
