The ever-increasing need for fast, secure access to ballooning volumes of data continues to be good news for storage suppliers. Infinidat highlighted the 144 per cent year-on-year growth for its flash-optimized storage product and big customers including US telecoms. “We think that most of our competitors go for land-grab, revenue growth at all costs which leads to negative cash flow. We are doing exactly the opposite,” said Infinidat’s CTO Brian Carmody.

The man is an enigma, but you can’t expect billionaires to be easily understood people. He has performed several storage engineering firsts; he develops products and is basically a storage legend in his own lifetime. He is also said to have a massive ego. Currently, he runs high-end storage array supplier Infinidat and two on-demand helicopter businesses. He is a one-time Israeli Defence Force commander, a Technion University graduate and now Distinguished Fellow, an ex-EMC fellow, an ex-IBM fellow, a man who inspires extraordinary loyalty and is rumoured to have had volcanic strategy disagreements with the most senior corporate storage business executives. His Symmetrix high-end array was the single most important product in EMC’s history, catapulting the company to unparalleled dominance as a standalone storage supplier, and is still in production today as the VMAX system. He is Moshe Yanai.

INFINIDAT’s InfiniBox content pack for vRealize Log Insight provides customers with the capability to easily monitor and analyze InfiniBox systems, by converting syslog messages into helpful insights. InfiniBox is a flash optimized storage platform that provides faster than all-flash performance for real-world workloads and a truly unified SAN and NAS solution, supporting multiple protocols in a single system. The modern data center requirements are rapidly evolving and leading to innovations that are driven by changing trends in cloud infrastructure, virtualization, storage demands, security, IPv6, and the dynamically changing enterprise needs. These trends require equally advanced solutions for managing critical IT services in physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

Infinidat Ltd. ended fiscal 2016 with record year-over-year global revenue growth. The rise in demand is based on the increasing need for faster access to greater volumes of data for advanced analytics on real-world workloads particularly in data-driven key vertical markets such as healthcare, financial services, telecommunications and cloud services. As evidence of the company’s 144% year-over-year global growth and growing customer base, Infinidat is changing the traditional storage array to exceed the needs of ever-changing and increasing workloads including AI and machine learning with its flash-optimized storage solution.

Yearly since 2013, we are ranking the top fastest growing storage companies in sales, either start-ups, private or public firms, from 2015 to 2016 (calendar year or fiscal year), based on published figures only. This ranking will be updated when we will get more information from other companies. They are all privately held – but five – and about never reveal the exact figure of their sales. But a bunch of them have published press releases demonstrating their growth in percentage of sales, bookings or in number of customers or units shipped. We have classified below these firms depending on their published growth.

Software-Defined Storage (SDS) may hold a lot of promise. But implementation can be far from straightforward. Organizations may have hardware and software dating back several generations. So what is the best way to go about it? When thinking about implementing a first-generation, software-defined storage solution, make sure to include much more than just the hardware and software costs as you calculate your total cost of ownership (TCO). Add in the extra space, power and cooling costs for a lab to implement and test a solution before putting it into production, and put in headcount costs (and expertise) needed to implement a solution. “These are all important costs that must be factored in as a part of all new software-defined solutions,” said Steve Kenniston, vice president of product marketing, Infinidat.

Virtualisation, a mainstay in most IT environments today, has come to represent a panacea for the data centre, eradicating a tranche of issues associated with increasing workloads and organisational growth. But it doesn’t come without its problems. Through its inherent abstraction of physical hardware components, virtualisation maximises resources, increases data centre space and yields value from servers.Its benefits are many, including saving capex costs on physical hardware, achieving better utilisation of existing resources and better balance of performance and management.In addition, the costs for infrastructure administration and management remain within IT operations and the maximum return on the hardware investment can be achieved.

How can Infinidat promise storage that’s both highly available and low cost? Its CEO explains. Moshe Yanai has an impressive track record in the storage industry. Some 20 years ago while working at EMC, he developed the Symmetrix storage array and from there he moved on to start up the storage array company XIV, which was sold to IBM. He’s now come out of retirement to work on another new project, a storage company called Infinidat. The hottest innovation in storage currently is flash memory. It seems that everybody in the IT storage world is talking about flash, a technology that offers fast storage at a high cost when compared to conventional storage.

INFINIDAT is tweaking its Infinibox array design to increase its capacity. The present 3U drive trays and 2U controller enclosures will each become 1U trays, enabling an increase from 480 drives to 720 in a rack – a 67 per cent increase. These drive trays hold 60 vertically mounted disk drives. At INFINIDAT’s Herzliya office, press visitors saw an Infinibox array in the data centre with three 1U server enclosures, releasing 3U from the current 3 x 3U controller (Dell 370 server) enclosures. Below this were 1U drive trays holding rows of flat-mounted Seagate 3.5in Constellation ES drives. We calculated there were 20 drives per tray and space for 36 trays in the rack, making up the 720-drive total we were quoted.
