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.
