Infinidat Unveils the InfiniBox™ SSA II Solid State Array: Faster Performance, Expanded AIOps, and Comprehensive Cyber Resilience
WALTHAM, Mass., April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Infinidat, a leading provider of enterprise storage solutions, today announced the InfiniBox™ SSA II, the next generation solid state array in the company’s broad portfolio of storage and cyber resilient solutions. With this announcement, Infinidat is extending its groundbreaking cyber resilient capabilities with InfiniSafe® to primary storage and rolling out significant enhancements to the performance, AIOps, and efficiency of the company’s first generation of the InfiniBox SSA. The new InfiniBox SSA II now stands as the industry’s fastest all-flash storage array with unprecedented low latency.
“Infinidat is accelerating its business with the InfiniBox solid state array platform, expanding our opportunities and capturing all-flash wins in the enterprise storage market where the highest levels of performance and availability, extensive cyber resilience, and cost-effectiveness are required for the most demanding applications and workloads,” said Phil Bullinger, CEO at Infinidat. “We have a comprehensive portfolio of enterprise storage and cyber resilient solutions powered by a common software architecture across our InfiniBox, InfiniBox SSA II and InfiniGuard platforms, having expanded and enhanced the value and capabilities we are bringing to our customers extensively since early 2021.”
Today’s announcement is comprised of four key components:
The combination of InfiniSafe, performance enhancements, and expanded InfiniOps integration capabilities in the new system disrupts the status quo in the all-flash storage industry. The InfiniBox SSA II continues to raise the bar in performance, utilizing 100% solid state technology for persistent storage, which when coupled with Neural Cache and the company’s software advancements 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 total cost of ownership that defines the industry acclaimed InfiniBox customer experience.
“Somewhere between 5% and 10% of most IT organizations' applications are considered 'tier 0' and require the lowest, most consistent latencies, and many enterprises will only look at all-flash systems to address the latency requirements of these generally mission-critical workloads,” said Eric Burgener, Research Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC. “Infinidat is squarely targeting this market segment with its InfiniBox SSA, and the vendor's updated capabilities, including in particular the ability to deliver latencies as low as 35 microseconds and the InfiniBox SSA II's new InfiniSafe cyber resilience support, make it an excellent fit for tier 0 workloads in the enterprise. And the SSA has been very successful for Infinidat: in the latest fiscal quarter, which ended in March, it contributed roughly 15% of overall revenue.”
“At Telia Cygate, a managed service provider, our customers’ business needs have evolved, and a proportion of their mission-critical applications required higher performance capabilities. As an existing customer of Infinidat’s InfiniBox, we immediately thought of Infinidat for our solution,” said Reima Perho, Chief Technology Officer, Telia Cygate Oy. “With the InfiniBox SSA we found the answer to the performance needs of our customers and have enjoyed Infinidat’s excellent customer experience and uncompromising reliability. Our InfiniBox SSA met the very high-performance expectations for the most demanding customer workloads. We can’t wait for the new advancements and end customer value in Infinidat’s future releases, including InfiniBox SSA II."
“Technologent is known for partnering with the best technology vendors to ensure we bring the most efficient solutions to our customers,” said 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’re able to bring 35 microsecond latency and 100% availability to help our customers meet the most demanding workloads. And with the InfiniSafe Cyber Resiliency Technology extending into the InfiniBox portfolio, we’re able to provide our customers the peace of mind they need in a time filled with cyber attacks and data breaches.”
The InfiniBox SSA II is also available with Infinidat’s flexible consumption options, as are all of 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.
