Moshe Yanai’s INFINIDAT high-end enterprise array is getting added file support, better disaster recovery and an entry-level system.
The InfiniBox F2000 entry-level box is an 18U rack enclosure with 250TB of usable capacity with 3TB disk drives or 330TB with 4TB drives. The original and ongoing InfiniBox F6000 offers up to 2PB of usable capacity in a 42U rack. The new configuration has the same code base, management capability and “seven nines” availability as the F6000.
INFINIDAT’s array software is now unified in that it has had file-based access added to its block base. It supports NFS v3.0 and has up to 2PB of usable capacity. The file-based pool of storage, like the block base, can be as large as the entire usable capacity of the system, and both files and blocks are allocated from a common base pool of storage.
