UK-based cloud services provider Core DataCloud has consolidated disk storage from several vendors – including EMC Isilon, Unity, Nimble Storage and Rubrik – onto a single Infinidat petabyte-scale storage platform. The Infinidat Infinibox will support backup and disaster recovery services for Core DataCloud, which has around 120 customers served from its Reading-area datacentre.
Infinidat is multiprotocol storage with iSCSI and Fibre Channel block access as well as NFS and SMB file access storage. The company – formed by ex-IBM execs – specialises in high-capacity storage nodes with little use of flash storage. Instead it aims to provide adequate performance from use of small amounts of DRAM and flash to speed input/output (I/O).
