Public cloud services are undoubtedly the fastest way for any individual or organization to get compute and storage resources in a pinch. No need to handle infrastructure capacity, you get what you need, and get it now. However, consuming services instead of being the infrastructure services provider creates new challenges. As the saying goes, with cloud it’s cheap to fail but expensive to succeed.

When operating at petabyte scale on the primary storage layer, there is a reasonable expectation (unless datasets are ephemeral) that our primary data will need to be backed up and held for a certain amount of time. If we enter the troubled waters of regulated industries, data storage requirements usually include long-term data storage (usually ranging from 5 to 10 years for the most sensitive data assets). Organizations who neglect these regulatory requirements have a Sword of Damocles hanging over them, whose blade can invoke hefty fines or even the loss of operating licenses in the most serious cases. Luckier organizations may not be regulated, but they nevertheless have a responsibility to protect their data – if not for the sake of regulations, at the very least to ensure the continuity of their business operations.

INFINIDAT introduced four new products aimed at enterprises seeking to accelerate digital transformation and drive cost out of their IT infrastructure. InfiniSync is a 450 pound, ballistically hardened data bunker appliance that is the world’s first solution for zero RPO synchronous data mirroring over virtually infinite distance, with zero latency impact.

Infinidat launches InfiniSync “black box” as off-site storage on-site, plus new InfiniBox PB-scale array, cloud storage service Neutrix Cloud and InfiniGuard backup appliance. Large-capacity hybrid flash array maker Infinidat has launched a new category of backup hardware, the InfiniSync – an aircraft-style black box that acts like an off-site backup location but is on-site.

Last week INFINIDAT announced some major milestones to expand their product portfolio. I’ve already covered the technical foundations of INFINIDAT’s enterprise innovation in my first post. Today, let’s take a closer look at one of last week’s announcements: InfiniSync. InfiniSync is a synchronous, zero RPO replication solution that works over infinite distance. I already hear some raise their hands and shout “hold on!” Fear not! We will cover the “how” soon enough.

INFINIDAT announced four new products aimed at enterprises seeking to accelerate digital transformation and drive cost out of their IT infrastructure. InfiniSync is a 450 pound, ballistically hardened data bunker appliance that is the world’s first solution for zero RPO synchronous data mirroring over virtually infinite distance, with zero latency impact. “Traditional mission-critical computing requires synchronous mirroring, perhaps from lower Manhattan to a data bunker in northern New Jersey, and then asynchronous mirroring from the bunker to a disaster recovery site in Texas,” said Jacob Broido, Chief Product Officer at INFINIDAT.

Infinidat this week upgraded its high-end flagship storage array and added a private cloud and data protection hardware. The product launch included the Infinidat InfiniBox F6212, with 8.3 petabytes (PB) in a 42U rack. It offers twice the raw capacity of the current high-end InfiniBox F6000 models due to larger SAS disks. Infinidat arrays are all hybrids, including hard disk drives along with flash. New additions to the hardware line include the InfiniSync flash-enabled “black box” for disaster recovery and the InfiniGuard disk backup appliance. All the Infinidat hardware gear will be generally available April 1. An Infinidat-hosted Neutrix Cloud is scheduled to launch April 15. Neutrix Cloud will let Infinidat customers move applications between public cloud providers without moving the associated data.

Today INFINIDAT announced several new products that seek to lower costs while accelerating organizations digital transformations. The company is announcing a new hardened data bunker appliance, a data protection appliance, the latest InfiniBox model, and its public cloud storage service. These announcements come at the end of 18 quarters of revenue growth for INFINIDAT. INFINIDAT states that most enterprise portfolios are disparate collections of products with incompatible features and APIs. This can add complexity, inefficiency, and raise costs to customers. The company as remedied this with its products, basing them all on its common foundational software platform.

Today is a special day for INFINIDAT. They are announcing four important new products, markedly expanding their portfolio with their new additions. INFINIDAT have been known for their award-winning primary storage solution, the InfiniBox. This announcement represents a major milestone: a portfolio expansion that will likely prove instrumental for the further growth of INFINIDAT’s business, revenue and market share.

A flurry of array related activity came out of Infinidat today. Well, it is a Tuesday so why the hell not. The big iron vendor told us it is squeezing out a higher capacity model, it is releasing a faster restore backup target array and a “data centre black box” billed as a zero data loss disaster recovery system, and enabling users to play off public cloud compute vendors against each other. On the data availability front the company claimed it is allowing for better protection and recovery of the data stored in its arrays, and enabling them to withstand a regional disaster.
