Cloud Proximate Data Storage

Matt Leib talks about what he calls Cloud Proximate Data Storage, where major storage vendors leverage locationally close datacenters to mitigate the cost of moving data. Matt goes on to discuss the solutions presented at Storage Field Day 16 as well as PureAccelerate such as Infinidat’s Neutrix, products from PureStorage, and HPE’s Cloud Volumes/CloudBank.


Infinidat’s ~90% (average read hit) solution

Ray Lucchesi reviews Infinidat’s presentation from Storage Field Day 16, impressed by their incredible 90% read hit solution. Ray says that the real challenge Infinidat faces is figuring out how to perform as well as an all flash array with hybrid flash disk storage, and it seems like they’ve accomplished that goal.


Infinidat, and #SFD16 – Data Is the New Currency

Matt Leib covers the technology behind Infinidat discussed at their Storage Field Day 16 presentation. He also covers another proximate data architecture from Infinidat called Neutrix, which he hopes could mitigate a lot of the problems inherent in storing data on major cloud providers.


Infinidat announces new storage, replication & backup appliances + cloud storage

Ray Lucchesi outlines Infinidat’s new storage replication and backup appliances discussed at Storage Field Day 16. This includes InfiniSync, designed to be a “black box” to survive any disaster that could befall a data center, InfiniGuard, a solution to poor RTO results, as well as Infinidat’s new public cloud storage option. Ray discusses the purpose of each product as well as their positives and negatives looking forward.


INFINIDAT to Showcase Expanded Product Portfolio at Storage Field Day 16

INFINIDAT presented at Storage Field Day last week, providing a look into their newly expanded product portfolio. This included a deep dive into Neutrix Cloud, as well as an architectural look at their storage scaling methodology. Be sure to check out their full presentation video for more information.


Back to SFO for Storage Field Day 14! – FastStorage

Storage Field Day is coming up next month, and we’re happy to have the inimitable Jon Klaus returning! Returning for his seventh Storage Field Day, expect plenty of probing questions, quality analysis and stroopwafels from Jon as he sees presentations from Dell EMC, E8 Storage, and Scality.


InfiniBox: solving the enterprise storage cost vs performance equation?

Infinidat will be presenting at Storage Field Day next year, but Max Mortillaro has an extensive preview of the company out now. He gives an overview of their software-defined storage solution, InfiniBox. Max sees it as an interesting solution for primary storage than offer petabyte-scale solution, high availability, and efficient caching without the expense of an AFA.


I will be at Commvault Go and Storage Field Day 14!

Max Mortillaro will be back for a pair of events in November. He’s excited to attend Tech Field Day Exclusive at Commvault GO as well as attending Storage Field Day. He’s looking forward to a deep dives from Commvault, various Dell EMC divisions, comparing storage approaches from E8 Storage and Infinidat, and getting deep into object storage from Scality. It’ll be a busy month for Max!
