Infortrend | May 31, 2022
Infortrend Technology, Inc., a market-leading enterprise storage supplier, has enhanced EonStor GS U.2, an enterprise scale-out unified storage system with U.2 NVMe SSD. It provides block and file-level scale-out extensibility to boost capacity and performance as storage requirements rise.
The EonStor GS (GS) unified SAN/NAS storage is intended for a variety of corporate applications such as database, virtualization, video post-production, and file sharing. It provides excellent capacity and performance in a variety of ways. Users can begin with one GS and add other GS as required to establish a cluster with up to four appliances through scale-out. GS supports the common ultra-fast U.2 SSD and boosts performance up to 1000K IOPS and 22GB/s per appliance to improve data processing with high IOPS and low latency.
GS offers a single namespace for CIFS and NFS user access from Windows, Linux, and macOS. IT administration can be simplified even further with auto-balancing, which ensures that data is stored equitably on each GS in a cluster. IT personnel may save money by expanding all-flash U.2 GS with HDD JBOD and letting the auto-tiering technology move 'hot' and 'cold' data between high-performance SSD and cost-effective HDD.
For forward-looking enterprises seeking a competitive and cost-saving solution, we updated GS unified storage with support of scale-out expandability and U.2 SSD. Users can connect several GS into a cluster with optimized load balancing, increased I/Os, and tight data protection."
