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.

Infinidat, the enterprise high-end array provider, has added SMB filer support, boosted IOPS and throughput, and strengthened its snapshot capabilities.

Value-added distributor (VAD) Exclusive Group has teamed up with INFINIDAT in a new strategic distribution partnership that will provide partners with access to the InfiniBox platform. The enterprise storage provider will now form part of Exclusive Group’s BigTec cloud transformation division, as the cooperation targets deeper market penetration across EMEA and Asia – particularly in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand in the Asia Pacific region, as well as the UK, the DACH region and France in EMEA.

Among the enterprise storage arrays, the Infinidat InfiniBox is a disk-based system swimming in an ocean of flash. The InfiniBox design hinges on machine learning algorithms that extract high performance from commodity-priced capacity spinning media. Infinidat's system only includes about 3% of flash to support its neural caching system, giving it the potential for seven nines of availability at petabyte scale. The latest version of InfiniBox system software supports more than 8 PB of effective capacity in a 42U rack.
