Infortrend EonStor GS

A single consolidated Enterprise-Class file and block storage system with cloud-integrated features.

The volume of digital data currently being produced is growing at unprecedented rates, in big part due to our increasing demand for unstructured data types such as files, images and videos, which push the boundaries of storage capacity and performance. EonStor GS family is a unified storage solution that incorporates remote cloud storage into local applications to offer the best of both worlds – unlimited cloud storage and high performance local storage – as well as automatic data lifecycle management, to allow SMBs and SMEs running local SAN/NAS applications to easily and cost-effectively integrate and expand their storage architecture into cloud services.

Powerful All-around High Performance & Efficiency

Based on much improved hardware and firmware, EonStor GS family can handle file level protocols including CIFS/SMB, NFS, AFP and FTP; block level protocols such as Fiber Channel, iSCSI and SAS.

By integrating all of these protocols and harnessing the power of Intel's multicore CPU, EonStor GS family delivers not only outstanding flexibility but also incredible performance in two configurations: all-flash and hybrid. As an all-flash system, it delivers up to 700K IOPS, 23,000MB/s block and 17,000MB/s CIFS bandwidth. Moreover, by offering hybrid features such as SSD Cache, protocol translation between local NAS/SAN and cloud storage services, and automated storage tiering, EonStor GS family guarantees exceptional performance at every level of operation.

Infinite Storage Capacity on Cloud

One of the key benefits of cloud storage solutions is their unlimited scalability and flexible “scale on demand” model, which allows you to expand your storage capacity as needed, without upfront investment, to fit your capacity requirements as they evolve.

By integrating Intelligent Cloud Gateway Engine and supporting a wide range of both private cloud and public cloud services, including Amazon, Azure, and Google, the EonStor GS offers various cloud functions such as Cloud Tiering, Cloud Cache and Cloud Backup to make the most of cloud's advantages. These functions perfectly combine local and cloud storage, automatically and optimally allocating data, while saving setup and maintenance costs in the process.

Comprehensive Data Protection and Security

As security is of utmost importance when it comes to data storage in the cloud, the EonStor GS family provides AES 256bit Encryption for data-in-flight and data-at-rest, as well as self-encrypting drives (SED) compatibility, ensuring data is always protected from malicious threats. Furthermore, with integrated SSL, links between server and client are also encrypted.

Security threats are by no means the only concern when it comes to safeguarding data. Unexpected disk failures, natural disasters and power outages all up the risk of data loss. EonStor GS family ensures this risk is minimal with its integrated backup functions such as Intelligent Drive Recovery (IDR), snapshot, local replication, remote replication and file-level rsync.

The system supports built-in SMB 3.0 failover and multipathing to handle failures. Also, designed with redundant dual controllers and non-single-point-of-failure hardware components, it ensures business continuity at all times.

Symmetric active-active controllers

EonStor GS supports symmetric active-active controller configuration to minimize administrative effort and boost operation efficiency. Hosts can access the same LUNs simultaneously via both controllers. I/O are more equally distributed across both controllers and all paths, effectively minimizing costly path management time. In the event of a path failure, I/O can automatically continue through the remaining paths with little or no failover.
