RAID Storage Expert Infortrend Unveils New 16-Bay, 4Gigabit Fibre Channel For Massive Data Storage
RAID storage expert Infortrend(r) today unveiled the new 16-bay, 4Gigabit Fibre Channel (4G-FC) to SAS RAID arrays: the EonStor(r) (ES) S16F-R1430 redundant controller subsystems. Combining the company’s powerful new ASIC400 engine with high performance 4G-FC transfer speeds and the improved features of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), these new arrays deliver the reliability and processing capabilities required for even the most demanding data storage environments. The ES S16F supports SAS or SATA disk drives so that vendors can design cost- and performance-effective storage solutions, using high performance SAS drives for mission-critical solutions and cost-effective SATA drives for near-line backup environments.
“The ES S16F arrays meet the needs of storage managers and system integrators who are looking to boost the performance of their existing storage systems in applications such as disk farms or imaging stations that require RAID protection and vast storage capacity,” said Nick Liu, vice president of Infortrend Technology Inc. “The redundant controller model is especially designed to meet the demands of 24/7 operations and is the perfect choice for high-bandwidth applications such as high performance computing, financial transactions, medical imaging, and video streaming.”
For massive data storage, Infortrend also announced the EonStor S16S-J1000, a SAS-to-SAS JBOD available in single and redundant controller versions. The SAS JBODs also support both SAS and SATA-II drives and come with two SAS ports per controller. By cascading ES S16S-J1000 JBODs, the S16F can support up to 64 drives, allowing customers to build a storage network with sufficient capacity for each application and still reserve space for future expansion.
The EonStor S16F is ideal for direct-attached storage, FC SAN, clustered servers, disk-to-disk backup, and database and archive applications in industries such as imaging, archiving, online data transactions, enterprise environments, and more.
