Infinite I/O

That time Albert Einstein endorsed Infinio

Posted by Sheryl Koenigsberg on Sep 5, 2017

Albert Einstein once said, "No problem can be solved by the same kind of thinking that created it." At Infinio, we like to say that this is particularly true about storage performance problems - they can't be solved with hardware alone.

Intel Optane: Our POV

Posted by Arun Agarwal on Jul 13, 2017

Disclosure: As a leading DRAM and NAND caching company for data centers and private clouds, we’re collaborating closely with Intel on Optane testing, and it is an area of great interest to us. We’ve been closely following the discussion around the recent Register article that quotes Wikibon’s report on Optane by David Floyer. While we don’t have a subscription to Wikibon and thus can’t read the full report, we wanted to respond, as most IT decision makers will only see the Register article or the Wikibon free preview.

Customer Story: UGA Center and Hotel

Posted by Sheryl Koenigsberg on May 12, 2017

The University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education and Hotel is a conference center located in Athens, GA. With 200 hotel rooms and over 35,000 square feet of conference space, the UGA Center is an active resource used by the entire University community.

The UGA Center had been using a different server-side cache whose market stability was in question, so the team set out to find a replacement.

Andy Stowe, systems administrator at UGA, says, “We talked to some other divisions here at the University. One was using a solution and said that when they turned it off, ‘people went crazy,” so we decided give that a try. It was Infinio.”

“Response times were fast – as low as 170 microseconds - which is even faster than our all-flash array."
