Infinidat, a leading provider of enterprise storage solutions, announced two new major enhancements that enrich and expand the company’s all-flash capabilities and capacity for enterprise storage. Infinidat is launching SSA Express Software for the InfiniBox platform, providing a fast, all-flash engine integrated into the hybrid array. SSA Express Software eliminates the need for enterprises to purchase a separate siloed flash array to support smaller applications and workloads that require high performance at low latency. Infinidat is also expanding its InfiniBox™ SSA II solution with a new model that delivers double the capacity, along with partially populated models in a scale-up architecture for greater flexibility and control.
“SSA Express Software reimagines the InfiniBox hybrid platform, ensuring that critical applications and workloads have rapid, low-latency response rates through direct access to the flash layer, while, simultaneously, reducing costs and simplifying storage management,” said Eric Herzog, CMO at Infinidat. “With our new SSA Express Software, enterprise customers can consolidate an increased number of workloads to the InfiniBox hybrid’s flash layer than ever before, taking advantage of an even greater level of application workload alignment within our unique software-defined storage architecture. In addition, we are excited to introduce a new version of the industry acclaimed InfiniBox SSA II all-flash solution with double the usable capacity, ideal for enterprises with extensive high-performance application demands.”
“Infinidat’s strategy to integrate a new level of all-flash capabilities into their InfiniBox hybrid platform gives users the ability to add datasets to InfiniBox’s dedicated SSD layer for higher performance. It’s a brilliant move that opens up the InfiniBox hybrid to a wider range of enterprise applications and workloads,” said Scott Sinclair, Practice Director, Cloud, Infrastructure and DevOps at the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “SSA Express expands the value InfiniBox delivers. Infinidat is also delivering increased value by expanding its InfiniBox SSA II all-flash portfolio with not only significantly more usable capacity but also a flexible, scale-up architecture that allows enterprises to grow their storage infrastructure at a pace that works best for them at a lower cost entry point.”
