Why should hosting providers pay attention to Infinidat data storage solution? Practical experience of use

Articles and reviews

Infinidat, a leading provider of enterprise-class storage solutions, noted that Virtual Data Corp. (VDC) a managed cloud hosting provider has been running smoothly for the past two years using the InfiniBox platform. This high availability allowed the VDC to combine multiple arrays into one for ease of management and cost savings without any disruption. At the same time VDC expanded its storage capabilities with InfiniBox beyond the petabyte to flexibly leverage storage as needed and to support the company's growth strategy.

The move to the InfiniBox storage platform has retooled high-quality, state-of-the-art VDCs in Canada. As an IT solutions provider, VDC provides customers in Canada, the United States and worldwide with public and private cloud hosting, cloud backup, managed server hosting and disaster recovery.

The company was able to combine five to six SANs into a single SAN, thereby simplifying the management of each individual SAN. In addition, VDC has moved on to the broad range of integrations and capabilities that the Infinidat storage platform provides with VMware and Veeam, in particular a disaster recovery (DR) solution.

With 24/7 hosting providers operating in an ever-growing data and workload environment, VDC appreciated the ability to pay for storage incrementally in response to growing business needs. Infinidat provides the ability to purchase and use storage when needed, giving customers a complete picture of their budget.

“The increasing data usage of VDC customers and other service providers has created a significant need to rescale storage capacity. Because we treat our customers as partners, our service and support team calls VDC monthly to help maximize the capabilities of the InfiniBox platform. The predictability, low total cost of ownership, and ease of use that VDC has gained are also enjoyed by all of our customers. "Steve Sullivan, executive vice president of sales at Infinidat.

Infinidat helps businesses and service providers scale their competitive advantage with petabyte data. Infinidat's architecture provides 100% availability and scalability with a significantly lower total cost of ownership than other vendors' solutions.

Infinidat customers can easily consolidate a number of corporate databases into a single InfiniBox system, reducing the occupied area and cost of network ports tenfold. InfiniBox prevents the uncontrolled growth of arrays and file systems by allowing exploitation and resource planning teams to take advantage of the scale effect created by unified storage pools whose capacity is comparable to that of a data center. Flexible software quality and mainframe reliability ensure that key business applications run seamlessly in parallel with applications used for development and testing in a secure, scalable, and efficient storage infrastructure.

The InfiniBox enterprise-class storage system outperforms all-flash performance, provides high availability when working with mixed workloads and allows you to increase the capacity to several petabytes, and data replication on the "active / active" scheme significantly increases business flexibility.

InfiniBox is based on Neural Cache - a machine learning algorithm that takes into account the historical relationships between sections of data received by the system from the beginning of use. Observing all network traffic going to the storage system, Neural Cache analyzes the history of I / O operations, finds correlations in data access patterns and immediately begins to predict future requests, leaving them in the cache. Because most I / O requests are handled directly from RAM (where latency is more than 100 times less than in flash memory), any application on InfiniBox will run faster than on traditional all-flash arrays.

Access to the petabyte data set in milliseconds radically accelerates the digital transformation in any field, be it genetic engineering, precision medicine, training drones and creating virtual reality games, banking or fraud detection.
