Infinidat embeds SAN, NAS replication in InfiniBox R4

Infinidat has checked off several roadmap items for its high-end InfiniBox storage system, including “near-zero impact” SAN synchronous replication and the ability to define quality of service for individual applications, tenants and subtenants.

The InfiniBox R4 upgrade also added asynchronous NAS replication and NAS directory quota management to combat file system sprawl. Those features are among more than 150 enhancements to the R4 operating system.

Infinidat claims InfiniBox unified arrays are faster than all-flash, although they store all data on hard disk drives. The modular design includes three controllers in an active-active-active configuration for high availability. InfiniBox is geared to enterprises with petabyte-scale storage, competing with high-end storage arrays from Dell EMC, NetApp, Hitachi Vantara, IBM and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

InfiniBox serves most I/O traffic from dynamic RAM (DRAM), and includes a small dose of flash as an acceleration tier. Artificial intelligence and machine learning tools orchestrate data tiering. The InfiniFlash system learns over time the best media placement to generate high hit rates out of DRAM.

Adding synchronous replication makes Infinidat a better play with hyper-scale enterprises and managed service providers, IDC storage analyst Eric Burgener said.

“Infinidat targets InfiniBox for dense workload consolidation,” Burgener said. “It was somewhat limited in that it only offered asynchronous replication, which does not give a zero [recovery point objective]. This was a gap in the product line that they needed to fill. Their customers are now going to be more comfortable taking most of their mission-critical applications and putting it on this platform.”

Infinidat custom IP protocol drives synchronous replication

Rather than SCSI-based replication, Infinidat wrote a custom IP-optimized protocol that requires fewer network hops to acknowledge writes. Replication occurs directly on the remote node that manages the data.

Infinidat also reduced metadata processing by carrying only 180 bytes for each 64K of data. The replication occurs close to the silicon using an approach similar to Remote Direct Memory Access.

Infinidat said its asynchronous replication delivers target write latency in the sub-400-millisecond range on nearby systems, and scales linearly to keep performance consistent as replicas are added.

The system is designed to prevent data loss as volumes are synchronized. Users can configure it to transparently fall back to asynchronous replication to handle failure scenarios for mission-critical applications.

Infinidat took its time to develop its own replication technique, rather than rush to add the feature, the company’s CMO Randy Arseneau said.

“This was a very complicated computer science and mathematics problem to solve,” Arseneau said. “It would have been easy for us to implement replication as a ‘me too’ feature using a legacy approach, but that would violate our prime directive. We will not implement features using a traditional bolt-on technique just to get something to market faster. We architect features to embed them in our core OS as a way to mitigate processing and resource consumption.”

Infinidat added NAS support in 2015. New asynchronous NAS replication in R4 enables a recovery point objective of 4 seconds. Infinidat uses a CPU-accelerated process called InfiniSnap that supports billions of snapshots per replicated file system. Replication mostly occurs in DRAM to avoid stalling I/O requests.

Infinidat quality of service takes cues from all-flash arrays

Infinidat also added NAS TreeQ as a tool for managing NAS directory quotas. It allows administrators to apply hard quotas across multiple file systems. Resources can be allocated for a specific application or project with reporting in InfiniMetrics.

Most all-flash arrays offer quality of service (QoS), although the feature usually isn’t a deal-breaker for most customers. All-flash systems typically have sufficient overhead for bursting workloads. QoS becomes critical as array takes on more workloads.

Infinidat QoS allows resources to be partitioned by tenant or volume within an InfiniBox system. Tenants can allocate resources to multiple nested subtenants for more granular control of storage resources. Having it built into InfiniBox is another must-have capability, Burgener said.

“Infinidat’s QoS capability allows them to set the service level at low, medium or high and quantitatively guarantee it can deliver the performance where it’s needed. This is an issue for service providers and for on-premises clouds as well,” Burgener said.

Salesforce-Google integration bolsters CRM, analytics functionality

SAN FRANCISCO — Salesforce and Google cozied up a little more closely on several new product integrations: One offers a cloud alternative to Amazon Web Services, and another pushes Salesforce deeper into G Suite, Google’s subscription business applications cloud, which may send shock waves through the thriving ecosystem of partners that already provide small-business CRM to those apps.

The Salesforce-Google integration includes the naming of Google Cloud as Salesforce’s latest preferred public cloud for international customers, joining AWS, with which Salesforce partnered earlier this year.

The Salesforce-Google integration, announced earlier this month at Salesforce’s Dreamforce user conference, also includes Salesforce Lightning for Gmail and Google Sheets, as well as Quip Live Apps for Google Drive and Google Calendar. Salesforce’s Sales and Marketing Clouds will both have Google Analytics 360 embedded.

As part of the partnership, Google will also be offering existing Salesforce customers a one-year free trial of G Suite.

Salesforce is no stranger to partnering with other enterprise tech companies — even if some products compete — to offer its customers an enhanced experience, and that appears to be the reason behind the Salesforce-Google integration.

“In the past, [Salesforce] has announced some pretty big partnerships that turned out to maybe be not so big, but this is from a different angle,” said Michael Fauscette, chief research officer for G2 Crowd, based in Chicago. “They have a go-to-market strategy together.”

Small- and medium-sized businesses will benefit from the Salesforce-Google integration, because many of them already use Gmail and G Suite, according to analysts, and the Salesforce tie-in could make the San Francisco-based company attractive as a CRM option.

“I have a client, and the No. 1 challenge is adoption: They have these great tools and insights, but if people aren’t in there and feeding the engine and taking action, it doesn’t matter,” said Lisa Hager, global head of Salesforce practices for Mumbai-based Tata Consulting Services. “But if I go in to get my mail and the Salesforce platform prepopulates my email and spreadsheets, I’m more likely to go into that tool.”

Voices.com, which works with brands to find voice actors for campaigns and is based in London, Ont., has been a Salesforce customer for 12 years, and its CEO, David Ciccarelli, was enthusiastic about some of the Salesforce-Google integrations.

“Salesforce is a great system of record, but where it can improve upon is mass editing,” he said. “So, being able to one-click export from Salesforce into something manipulative like Google Sheets, make changes and one-click import back — that’s where you’ll see huge time savings.”

Marketing is where the data is

Salesforce has made a concerted effort to increase market share for its Marketing Cloud to match that of Sales Cloud and Service Cloud, and it looks to do that through data.

Just weeks after releasing B2B Lead Analytics for Facebook, Salesforce is embedding Google Analytics 360 into Marketing Cloud, giving marketers insights at the two leading data points on the internet.

“If you’re not in a separate data silo and you can ingest the Google Analytics 360 data on website visitors and keyword ad buys, with that integrated, you don’t have to take that data out and manually process it,” said Cindy Zhou, principal analyst for Constellation Research. “And there’s always data lost when you have to move it from one place to another. So, having it embedded natively will help you get deeper insights, and you can still apply Einstein on top to do audience segmentation and analysis.”

Ciccarelli of Voices.com said, as a smaller business, a license for Google Analytics 360 was always too much to budget for, but with it integrated into Salesforce at no additional cost, smaller companies will be able to receive enterprise-level insights.

Salesforce adds another storage cloud

The news of Salesforce adding another preferred public cloud for international expansion comes just months after Salesforce formed a similar partnership with AWS. The addition of Google Cloud is to address customer needs, according to Ryan Aytay, executive vice president for business development and strategic accounts for Salesforce.

“AWS continues to be an important part of our infrastructure, so nothing’s changing there,” Aytay said. “We’re just adding another preferred cloud and moving forward to address customer needs.”

Google and AWS are two of the three leaders in the cloud space, with the other being Microsoft’s Azure. Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff has been outspoken about his abhorrence toward former partner Microsoft, so it’s unlikely Salesforce will be partnering with the Seattle-based company anytime soon.

The move toward Google could have been a response to customers’ demands, according to Hager, as AWS is costly when it comes to cloud storage.

“Just being able to have that option of Google storage instead of AWS is important; I had three clients this morning complaining about the cost of AWS,” Hager said. “If you’re storing a lot of documents on Salesforce, it can get expensive. So, integrating with Google is a nice option.”

There’s some potential overlap with the integrated products, especially between Salesforce’s Quip and Google’s G Suite, but Salesforce executives aren’t worried about the overlap, with Aytay saying internally at Salesforce the company has used both products.

Zhou can see the products coexisting, but there’s also some “friendly competition” between G Suite and Quip, with the Salesforce product being a good alternative for companies creating contracts or requests for proposal.

Several of the Salesforce-Google integrations are already in market, including Lightning for Gmail and integrations with Calendar and Google Drive, with deeper integrations rolling out in 2018, according to the press release. Quip Live Apps integration with Google Drive is expected to be generally available in the first half of 2018 for $25 per user, per month with any Quip Enterprise License. And the integrations between Salesforce and Google Analytics 360 are expected in the first half of 2018 at no additional cost to licensed customers.
