Based on our methodologies, we establish a list of 8 storage companies: Actifio, Datto, DDN Storage, Dropbox, Infinidat, Kaminario, Rubrik and Veritas. From CB Insights list, we add three new companies – DDN Storage, Kaminario and Veritas – for a total of 203. It means that only 4% are storage related, a really small percentage and a bit surprising as storage is a hot topic and again a huge market. Two (25%) companies have Israel roots and six are Americans (75%) but none of them come from Europe and AsiaPac.

StorageMojo has observed, many times, that great marketing of a mediocre product beats mediocre marketing of a great product all the time. Thus it is always of interest when someone comes up with an innovative marketing wrinkle. That’s what Infinidat has done with their Faster than all flash challenge. Their claim is that their system will outperform any all flash array (generally available prior to 1-1-2017) or they donate $10,000 to the charity of your choice.

Enterprises that want to stay ahead of the curve now require data storage that delivers high performance, scalability and always-on availability in order to keep up with increasing data-movement speed demands. Not only that, in the current hyper-connected, data-driven world, organizations must overcome the challenges associated with real-time access to data to support business-critical workloads – all while maintaining the agility required to adjust to changing business directives. In this eWEEK slides,using industry information from INFINIDAT CTO, Brian Carmody, we present nine design principles that govern the next generation of storage.

Ten grand win or lose – Infinidat is spoiling for a fight against all-flash array vendors with its “Faster than All-Flash Challenge”. The company is confident its hybrid array is faster than any all-flash array out there, having beaten Pure and EMC arrays in testing. It says its box will beat any all-flash array users care to stand against it in “any real application workloads”. And it will donate $10,000 to The American Cancer Society if it wins such a test or a charity of your choice if it loses.

Infinidat has run performance tests against Pure and EMC all-flash arrays and surpassed them with its array. Back in November EMC compared its Unity 600F array against Pure’s FlashArray//m50 and //m70, with 8K and 16K IOPS and other tests. The Unity advantage was substantial and Pure disputed the real world validity of the results. Infinidat ran the same tests, it says, with its hybrid F6230 array, configured with 1.1TB of DDR-4 DRAM, 200TB TLC NAND, and 480 3TB nearline HDDs. The F6230 was configured with a 200TB data set instead of Pure and EMC’s 50TB. Why? Infinidat said today’s workloads need performance at scale. In-line compression was enabled as well.
