Infinidat launches next-generation InfiniBox SSA II Solid State Array: Faster performance, enhanced AIOps and comprehensive cyber-resilience

Infinidata leading provider of enterprise storage solutions, today announced the InfiniBox SSA II, the next generation of solid state array in the company’s broad portfolio of storage and cyber-resilient solutions.

With this announcement, Infinidat expands its groundbreaking cyberresilient capabilities with InfiniSafe for primary storage, rolling out significant improvements in the performance, AIOps and efficiency of the company’s first generation InfiniBox SSA.

The new InfiniBox SSA II now stands as the industry’s fastest all-flash storage array with unprecedented low latency.

Infinidat accelerates its business with the InfiniBox solid state array platform, expands our capabilities and brings together all the flash benefits in the enterprise storage market, where the highest level of performance and availability, comprehensive cyber resilience and cost-effectiveness are required for most demanding applications and workloads , ”Says Phil Bullinger, CEO of Infinidat. “We have a comprehensive portfolio of enterprise storage and cyber-resistant solutions driven by a common software architecture across our InfiniBox, InfiniBox SSA II and InfiniGuard platforms that have expanded and enhanced the value and opportunities we have added to our customers widely to the extent since the beginning of 2021. ”

Today’s announcement consists of four key components:
  • Infinidat extends cyberresilience – a hallmark of InfiniGuard’s secondary storage system – to its primary storage platforms with InfiniSafe Reference Architecture to cover the entire portfolio. InfiniSafe combines unchanging snapshots of data, logical air gapping, fenced forensic environment and virtually instantaneous data recovery and is now extended to InfiniBox SSA II, as well as the entire InfiniBox family. Cyber ​​resilience is among the most important and in-demand requirements from companies today to ensure unparalleled cyber security and combat cyber attacks across the entire storage space and data infrastructure.
  • The new InfiniBox SSA II delivers lower latency than any other comparable enterprise storage platform in the industry, delivering unprecedented 35 microsecond latency. This improvement will allow customers to not only get optimal application and workload performance, but also allow for significant inventory consolidation, dramatic transformation of inventory performance, increase efficiency and reduce overall costs.
  • Infinidat has improved its core software, optimized for further interconnections, while increasing the parallelism of additional cores. New algorithms also optimize the workload. By leveraging these updates as a core software element, Infinidat’s Neural Cache is able to provide InfiniBox with consistently high performance and the lowest latency. Furthermore, InfiniBox, including Neural Cache with its industry-leading cache utilization, automatically adapts to changes, such as adding new servers and applications without the human intervention-and-forget approach that Infinidat was pioneering, enhances ease of use and very low administrative costs, which users experience with the InfiniBox platform.
  • Infinidat introduces InfiniOps, a world-class operating portfolio that includes AIOps in the InfiniVerse box as well as close integration with the ever-expanding AIOps data center ecosystem and the expansion of DevOps solutions. As part of this announcement, the company is also rolling out new CSI 2.1.0 support for Kubernetes, VMware Tanzu and RedHat OpenShift environments. In addition, Infinidat Ansible provides integration enhancements to simplify the administration and integration of storage systems.

Infinidat launches next-generation InfiniBox SSA II Solid State Array: Faster performance, enhanced AIOps and comprehensive cyber-resilienceThe combination of InfiniSafe, performance improvements and expanded InfiniOps integration capabilities in the new system disrupts the status quo of the all-flash storage industry. The InfiniBox SSA II continues to raise the level of performance by using 100% solid state technology for continuous storage, which when combined with Neural Cache and the company’s software advances with autonomous automation, takes groundbreaking performance to the next level. In addition, the new SSA II delivers the same 100% availability, white-glove service and lower overall cost that defines the industry-leading InfiniBox customer experience.

Somewhere between 5% and 10% of most IT organizations’ applications are considered ‘tier 0’ and require the lowest, most consistent latency, and many companies will only look at all-flash systems to meet the latency requirements of these general missions. -critical workloads, ”says Eric Burgener, Research Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC.

Infinidat directly targets this market segment with its InfiniBox SSA and vendors’ updated capabilities, including in particular the ability to deliver latency as low as 35 microseconds and InfiniBox SSA II’s new InfiniSafe cyberresilience support, making it an excellent match for level 0 workloads in the company. And SSA has been very successful for Infinidat: In the most recent financial quarter, which ended in March, it contributed about 15% of total revenue. ”

At Telia Cygate, a managed service provider, our customers’ business needs have evolved and some of their mission-critical applications required higher performance. As an existing customer of Infinidat’s InfiniBox, we immediately thought of Infinidat as our solution, ”says Reima Perho, Chief Technology Officer, Telia Cygate Oy. “With InfiniBox SSA, we found the answer to our customers’ performance needs and have benefited from Infinidat’s excellent customer experience and uncompromising reliability. Our InfiniBox SSA lived up to the very high performance expectations for the most demanding customer tasks. We can not wait for the new advances and value for the end customer in Infinidat’s future releases, including InfiniBox SSA II. ”

“Technologent is known for collaborating with the best technology suppliers to ensure that we bring the most efficient solutions to our customers,” says Trent Widtfeldt, Chief of Engineering, Technologent.

“Infinidat has always been a key partner in this area, and with their new InfiniBox SSA II offering, we are able to offer 35 microsecond latency and 100% availability to help our customers meet the most demanding workloads. And with InfiniSafe Cyber ​​Resiliency Technology extending into the InfiniBox portfolio, we are able to give our customers the peace of mind they need in a time filled with cyber attacks and data breaches. ”

InfiniBox SSA II is also available with Infinidat’s flexible options, as are all Infinidat’s solutions, including Storage-as-a-Service with Infinidat’s FLX program, Capacity on Demand with Infinidat’s Elastic Pricing model and traditional purchase.
