Good performance, suitable for big data, but the response time could be improved
Pros and Cons
  • "This product has good performance."
  • "The response time for read requests can be improved."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case for this product is high-performance storage.

What is most valuable?

This product has good performance. It is similar to the Dell PowerMax and Pure Storage FlashArray.

The InfiniBox has three active controllers.

What needs improvement?

The response time for read requests can be improved. It is not as good as the solution from Pure Storage.

I have proposed an all-flash version of this product. If that were implemented then it would bypass the problem regarding the read cache.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

InfiniBox is a very stable solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have approximately 20 years of experience with enterprise solutions. These include various hyper-converged systems, all-flash storage systems, business continuity, and disaster recovery solutions for data assurance.

My experience is with products from a lot of different vendors. These include IBM, Dell EMC, Pure, Infinidat, and others. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The best features come included without any additional cost.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The InfiniBox is more expandable than Pure FlashArray. InfiniBox is more for big data than the Pure product.

The suitability of this solution depends on the customer's environment. Depending on the use case, we propose the right product. Pure Storage is not better than InfiniBox and InfiniBox is not better than Pure Storage. 

In comparing products, I would rate Pure FlashArray an eight out of ten, InfiniBox a seven out of ten, Dell EMC products receive a six out of ten, and all of the other all-flash storage systems that I have experience with would be rated a five out of ten.

With PowerMax, there is a big difference in cost when you start adding more features.

The Pure Storage solution has only two active controllers and one passive controller. InfiniBox has three active controllers, and PowerMax can have up to six active storage controllers.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a good product with good performance. If they had an all-flash version then it would improve the read-request response time and I would rate it an eight out of ten.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
