Infinidat: Advanced Unified Storage Solution
CEO: Moshe Yanai
Infinidat, a startup storage company whose team developed EMC's Symmetrix and IBM's XIV enterprise storage solutions, introduced a massive round of funding as well as a new storage architecture in April.
Infinidat received a new $150 million round of funding, and now has an estimated valuation of $1.2 billion.
The company, based in Needham, Mass., and Herzliya, Israel, also officially unveiled its new InfiniBox storage system, a solution the company called the first to offer unified block, file, object and mainframe storage.
The InfiniBox is a high-density, high-performance, low-power-consumption storage system the company said costs less on a per-gigabyte basis than other enterprise-class storage. It offers over 750,000 IOPS performance, with more than 12 GBps of throughput. And it does so with seven nines, or 99.99999 percent, uptime, which translates to less than 3 seconds of planned or unplanned downtime per year.
