Enhance your insights – INFINIDAT InfiniBox monitoring using vRealize Log Insight
INFINIDAT’s InfiniBox content pack for vRealize Log Insight provides customers with the capability to easily monitor and analyze InfiniBox systems, by converting syslog messages into helpful insights.
InfiniBox is a flash optimized storage platform that provides faster than all-flash performance for real-world workloads and a truly unified SAN and NAS solution, supporting multiple protocols in a single system.
The modern data center requirements are rapidly evolving and leading to innovations that are driven by changing trends in cloud infrastructure, virtualization, storage demands, security, IPv6, and the dynamically changing enterprise needs. These trends require equally advanced solutions for managing critical IT services in physical, virtual, and cloud environments.
InfiniBox is designed to address the above challenges by delivering a solution that is incredibly efficient and easy to deploy and manage, which provides automated provisioning, management, and application integration.
Some of InfiniBox key advantages:
- Truly unified storage – Multi-protocol support is engrained in InfiniBox architecture. Both SAN (block) and NAS (file) capabilities are native and designed to run side by side on the same platform along with advanced storage capabilities including native replication, inline data reduction and enhanced performance analytics.
- Faster than flash performance – InfiniBox is a flash optimized, enterprise proven storage platform that can deliver faster than all-flash performance delivering over 1M IOPS with sub-millisecond latency. InfiniBox always balanced active grid delivers consistent performance, regardless to the capacity utilization or the amount of volumes and snapshots.
- Unmatched reliability – A key attribute of the InfiniBox architecture is its unique 99.99999% uptime. This is made possible thanks to N+2 redundancy, self-healing active-grid, end-to-end data checksums (protecting against silent data corruptions) and fastest media rebuild in the industry.
- Scalability – Up to 5.5PB of effective capacity in a single 42U rack. The system’s capacity can be distributed across virtually unlimited number of volumes, filesystems and snapshots.
