back to article Infinidat adds sync, async replication and bans noisy neighbours

Big-iron array supplier Infinidat's fourth major version of its software adds sync (block) and async (file) replication, file directory quotas and quality of service features to quiet down noisy neighbours. Infinidat says it collaborated with more than 100 customers on the features for this release, in the planning and …

      Can anyone see the data in the GUI image - shows as minimised and blurry to me.

          It's not a good image. Yes, it's a screenshot of InfiniMetrics, and if I'm not mistaken it's showing the effect of implementing QoS on a test workload - the write latency goes up artificially with a resulting fall in IOPs and throughput.

          The GUI hasn't significantly changed across releases. It's a doddle to use.
