INFINIDAT, one of the few storage vendors still singing the praises of hard disk drives, is adding compression, native iSCSI and performance analytics to its high-end enterprise array platform. The company came out of stealth in 2015 selling INFINIDAT InfiniBox petabyte-scale storage systems. Its original target was the enterprise market that its founder Moshe Yanai helped EMC gain a foothold in nearly 30 years ago. Now it is trying to appeal to service providers with new features in its software version 3.0. Although flash makes up a mere three percent of InfiniBox’s total capacity, INFINIDAT claims its systems are faster than all-flash arrays. INFINIDAT InfiniBox uses flash for cache but stores all data on hard disk drives (HDDs).
