Infortrend Boosts Storage Performance with the New-Generation Systems and 32G FC / 25GbE Connectivity

Infortrend® Technology, Inc. announces the global launch of its new-generation unified storage systems, EonStor GS Gen2, EonStor GSa Gen2 along with the availability of 32G FC and 25GbE connectivity.

The new generation features excellent CP ratio by supporting Intel’s advanced CPU platform to deliver higher throughput, memory capacity, and per core performance. Compared to the Gen1, EonStor GS/GSa Gen2 can boost performance by up to 80%, making it capable of fulfilling the demanding requirements of today’s enterprise data environments, such as data center, HPC, and cloud computing. The introduction of 32G FC and 25GbE host boards further empowers enterprise customers to easily migrate to the new networking standards for speeding up data access.

EonStor GS Gen2 and EonStor GSa Gen2 family are both high availability solution integrating SAN, NAS and object storage as well as Cloud Gateway features to offer a powerful hybrid cloud environment. Additionally, GSa is all-flash storage designed to deliver optimal SSD performance with low latency. The Gen2 system is ideal for the common NAS and SAN infrastructures and applications, such as database, virtualization, video editing, file sharing, and cloud data integration.

As the data volume and IT complexity increase, more compute capability at all points of workload handling process are required. In light of this, Infortrend adopts Intel’s latest Xeon processor for Gen2, including 4-core GS/GSa 3000 Gen2 and 8-core GS/GSa 4000 Gen2. The enhancements include double memory capacity and four 10GbE ports onboard. In terms of performance, Gen2 reaches up to 10,000/5,500 MB/s Read/Write speed and, thus, delivers faster response time, no matter it’s a web transaction, online data query, or a virtual machine.

The introduction of 32G FC and 25GbE host connectivity brings more than double bandwidth via a single lane, making the storage infrastructure more scalable, flexible in deployment, and more space-efficient. More importantly, it is backward compatible with the old standard, and is also ready for the future 100G infrastructure. EonStor GS/GSa Gen2 offers modularized 32G FC and 25GbE host boards. Enterprise customers can choose what better suits their applications and upgrade to the new network standard with these easy-to-deploy and cost-effective solutions. 

The key benefit of Gen2 is that customers can enjoy better performance and future-proof storage infrastructure with lower costs. The launch of new-generation storage systems shows our ambition in paving the way for enterprises to gain profits from innovations,” said Thomas Kao, Senior Director of Product Planning.
