Infinidat's big iron array gets data scrunching, no-footprint iSCSI

Re: sure it's faster

Hey Nate - I work at Infinidat, thanks for the thoughtful comment. Despite the "premium" features of Infinibox, it is not an expensive product. I can share an anecdote: I recently saw a customer quote for a Dell EMC Unity midrange system, and Infinibox was one sixth of the cost per TB. For VMAX, which the majority of our workload gets migrated from, the difference is much higher. I'm not involved with every customer engagement, but in my three years I can't recall a case where a solution from EMC/HDS/Pure/etc had a lower cost per TB than Infinibox. For sure anecdotes != data, but you could also take a look at this reddit thread where a customer describes our pricing relative to EMC:
