This week we are in sunny, Florida at the VeeamOn 2019 conference. At the show, we are interviewing everyone from Veeam insiders to partners who help paint the IT Pro landscape with solutions to solve some of your toughest challenges. At VeeamON 2019, we sat down with Infinidat’s Executive Vice President of Business Development, Robert Cancilla, to talk big data and what has changed since 2018.

Infinidat is trialing a software-defined all-flash array to sit inside Infinibox.
The high-end array maker developed the software in response to the requirement of Epic Systems, a prominent US healthcare software provider, that its health records application must use all-flash arrays.

Larger enterprises are storing multiple petabytes of data already and many are heading towards storing exabytes. This presents significant economic and management challenges, according to Infinidat, the high-end storage array maker.
‘Traditional hardware-based storage arrays are expensive, hard to manage, and orders of magnitude too small for the coming data age. They must, therefore, evolve into something new: software-defined on-premises enterprise storage clouds,” Infinidat proclaimed in a white paper published this month.

Company's focus is on consolidating multiple petabytes of data onto a single platform.
Infinidat, a fast-growing company with a unique approach to block storage, this week announced its vision for the future of enterprise-class storage.

Infinidat hasn't followed the storage array crowd into all-flash storage, but it is following the trends of adding flexible consumption pricing and storage analytics.
Disk array maker Infinidat has expanded cloud options with flexible consumption licensing, storage analytics and a preview of new data mobility and recovery tools.

Infinidat, the high-end array maker, today launched subscription programs, software with enhanced performance, extended array connectivity, and cloud-delivered array monitoring and analysis.
The company also signaled its intention to enable workloads to move between on-premises and cloud storage in a single fabric.

A lot is being done to keep the ecological footprint of data centers as small as possible; economical and energy-efficient. Server and storage solutions, and the relocation of entire data centers to climatically more suitable zones, is also on the agenda. But with the growing threats from cyber criminals and higher data protection requirements, efforts to ensure a ‘greener’ IT environment can be thwarted.

We live in fast times. So fast in fact that a recent Google study showed that over half of users will abandon a website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load. Any online business knows if the website goes down, users will simply check out the competition and get the product/service they want elsewhere.

Load-shedding has become synonymous with day to day life in South Africa. But while it’s easy enough for a residence or small business to work around a blackout, larger enterprises face far greater – and pricier – consequences when they don’t have access to critical data.

Statistics gathered from the Gartner Symposium held in Cape Town in September 2018, stated that 60% of South African organisations use cloud services today. This percentage is expected to increase with the imminent rollout of local data centres by public cloud powerhouses, creating a 'market' where organisations will be able to choose between local or global public cloud and private cloud environments.
