Founded in 2011 by storage industry pioneer Moshe Yanai, INFINIDAT helps customers unlock the full potential of their data. INFINIDAT’s software-focused architecture, an evolution and revolution in data management design over 30 years in the making, solves the conflicting requirements of bigger, faster, and less expensive storage. INFINIDAT technology simultaneously delivers sub-millisecond latency, seven nines of reliability, and hyperscale capacity with a significantly lower total cost of ownership than incumbent storage technologies.
INFINIDAT storage solves the challenges of OpenStack storage at scale: simplicity, efficiency, reliability, and best-in-class integration. Our flagship product, InfiniBox, delivers over 8 petabytes of storage in a pre-integrated standard 42U rack, designed for 99.99999% (seven-nines) resiliency, outstanding performance, and great API integration, all with a TCO that is a fraction of typical enterprise storage. Integration between InfiniBox and OpenStack is easy using our InfiniBox Cinder and Manila drivers. The combination of simplicity, efficiency, reliability, performance, integration, and TCO makes INFINIDAT storage ideal for multi-petabyte OpenStack environments.
INFINIDAT storage is fully integrated with OpenStack, supporting Cinder (block storage) and Manila (file storage). Our automated deployment tools allow administrators to prepare OpenStack hosts for InfiniBox storage, integrate InfiniBox into service catalogs, and begin provisioning InfiniBox storage to OpenStack guests, typically in less than 15 minutes. Our INFINIDAT Cinder and Manila drivers tightly integrate with InfiniBox capabilities, including native full-disk encryption and our patented InfiniSnap™ engine that can provide 100,000 thin snapshots with zero performance impact whatsoever.
