Infinidat – Developing a faster way to store and protect multiple petabytes of data, with the highest possible availability, at the lowest possible cost


There is no denying that today's world has fully embraced the digital age and that countless data and storage files are primarily kept in computers. Data is the heart of the business. A thirst for information drives the world, and cloud-based options make it easy and manageable to store huge amounts of data. However, space is not the only thing that is worth paying. In the long run, storing data in the cloud with safety measurements is the most reliable solution. Data backup and data recovery are important parts of running a business and has become an essential phenomenon in today's technological era. It is one of the critical factors in keeping a business's information secure.

Infinidat is one such firm that helps customers drive petabyte-scale competitive advantage while providing faster-than-all-flash performance, and the industry's lowest total cost of ownership. Infinidat was founded in 2011 by a team of storage industry experts focused on returning business value to customers by eliminating the compromises between performance, availability, and cost at a multi-petabyte scale for enterprise storage. The Infinidat team, spanning generations of storage industry experience and previous product successes, has become an industry leader by developing a better, faster way to store and protect multiple petabytes of data, with the highest possible availability lowest possible cost. This work was done with a single goal in mind, enabling customers to spend less on their infrastructure and focus more on innovation, growth, and competitive advantage.

Infinidat's Technology: Delivering top quality data storage platform

Infinidat's technology foundation delivers data storage solutions with high availability, exceptional performance, and the lowest possible TCO at a multi-petabyte scale. The firm works on a Multi-Petabyte Scale that manages multiple petabytes of usable capacity in a single standard 42U rack, resolving data center footprint constraints. The technology used by Infinidat is highly reliable, thanks to its extraordinary RAS architecture and InfiniRAID® dual-parity data layout.

Protecting your data with at most care by furnishing astonishing products
