INFINIDAT InfiniBox F6212, InfiniSync and InfiniGuard are available at ASBIS

April 04, 2018


INFINIDAT InfiniBox F6212, InfiniSync and InfiniGuard are available at ASBIS

On 27th March 2018 INFINIDAT launched the new product portfolio which includes: InfiniBox F6212, InfiniSync, InfiniGuard, and Neutrix Cloud.


The four new products from INFINIDAT are:

  • F6212 Infinibox array
  • InfiniSync
  • InfiniGuard
  • Neutrix Cloud

All of these products based on INFINIDAT’s common foundational software platform that includes:

  • Neural Cache, INFINIDAT’s machine learning algorithm that maximizes performance by finding hidden connections in data access patterns.
  • InfiniRAID, which along with the INFINIDAT RAS architecture, provides seven nines (99.99999%) of availability while ensuring data integrity at multi-petabyte scale.
  • InfiniSnap, INFINIDAT’s innovative timestamp-based snapshot mechanism that provides infinite copy data management and high-performance replication with no performance impact. 

F6212 Infinibox array 

The current Infinibox product set consists of the F1000, F2000, F4000, F6000 and Infinidat backup appliance.

The F6212 is the new high-end system - it employs up to 480 x 12TB NL-SAS drives, meaning 5.7PB of raw capacity.

Now the current storage portfolio of Infinidat includes the following systems: 

  F1000 F2000 F4000 F6000 F6212
Max Usable Capacity 115TB 499TB 1.37PB 2.77PB 4.15PB
Max Effective Capacity 230TB 998TB 2.73PB 5.53PB 8.3PB
Max Memory 384GB 768GB 2.3TB 3.1TB 3.1TB
Max Flash Cache 103TB 103TB 207TB 207TB 207TB
IOPS 300,000 500,000 750,000 1,000,000 1,000,000
Throughput GB/sec 3 7 10 12.5 12.5

The F6212 is targeted at the real-time analytics, deep learning and IoT areas.


The data centre Black Box recorder is the fruits of buying Axxana company by Infinidat in end of 2017.

The idea is to obviate the need for a synchronous link to a remote DR site for high-value data where a low recovery point objective is needed. Typically, such DR arrangements involve a sync link from a primary array in, for instance New York, to a nearby bunker site in New Jersey, with multiple millisecond latency. There is also an asynchronous link to a remote secondary site, for instance in Dallas, with an overall recovery point objective (RPO) measured in minutes.

The Axxana Phoenix "black box" is a heavily insulated local system that Infinidat can survive an explosion. It stores up to 1.6TB of recent primary array data changes as they occur, with a latency of less than 0.3ms on its SSDs. Changes are also sent asynchronously to the secondary site. If the primary site goes down then recent sync data on the Infinisync box can be sent to the secondary site, by WAN or cellular transfer, and you reduce the RPO time to seconds.

The claimed outcome is fast post-disaster application recovery – RPO 0, with no data loss whatsoever and cost-savings. There is no need for the bunker site and sync comms links to it.

Axxana is now a fully owned Infinidat subsidiary and Infinidat was its first array integration.


In the Q4 2017 Infinidat introduced its Infinidat Backup Appliance (IBA), the B4260, based on an InfiniBox F4000 array. This takes up 26U in a rack whereas the IBA needs a full rack.

3 x 2U storage node servers were added to the F400 along with 3 x 2U stateless deduplication engines (DDE) which carry out variable block size, inline and global deduplication.

The system was pre-configured in a 2 + 1 HA-ready topology. If a DDE fails then its work is transferred to another one. Infinidat does not have single points of failure in its products.

The IBA has now been rebranded as InfiniGuard. It features a 48TB/hour ingest rate with no source-side deduplication, and up to 74TB/hour with source-side acceleration. Data can be replicated to a local or remote site for added protection.

The restoration rate is 24TB/hour. The speedup is attributed partly to the InfiniBox array's caching of reads in DRAM.

The InfiniGuard system supports 10GbitE and 16Gbit/s Fibre Channel links, with 12 ports which can be mixed. Ingest protocols include RMAN, for databases like Oracle, VTL, NAS (NFS and SMB), and OST.

The list of supported backup software products includes Veritas NetBackup, Oracle, Veeam, IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM), and Commvault.

Neutrix Cloud

With the Neutrix Cloud, INFINIDAT aims to truly deliver on the promise of the agility of the public cloud without driving up infrastructure complexity and cost.

Data is stored in Infinidat arrays at Infinidat data centres; the Neutrix cloud, adjacent to fast-access entry points to the Amazon (AWS Direct Connect), Azure (Azure ExpressRoute) and Google public clouds. That means AWS, Azure and Google cloud compute can process Neutrix cloud data, without the data actually being stored in said AWS, Azure or Google clouds.

The Neutrix cloud can also be used as a disaster recovery facility by Infinidat's customers as it offers DRaaS.

Bottom line

All these products are available at ASBIS.
