High-speed SAN with Powerful Scalability

Seeing 8G FC as the common protocol in future enterprise SAN, Infortrend furnishes all its EonStor G6 Fibre-to-SAS models with four 8G FC host ports on each controller for flexible connectivity. When data grow out of the capacity threshold of a single subsystem, you can scale it up to house massive capacity through expansion enclosures (S16S-J1000-R for S24F-R1840 and S16S-J1000-G for S24F-G1840). Powered by the new-generation RAID engine as its heart, the G6 Fibre-to-SAS Series can deliver outstanding performance to process the large amount of data. The no-delay, smooth operations it enables can satisfactorily meet the service levels your business requires. Coupled with the broad support for enterprise-level OS and server virtualization, it can serve as data storage for top-tier applications.

Robust Availability and Reliability

The EonStor G6 Series is based on High Availability (HA) modular design. All main hardware modules, including controllers, power supplies, and cooling fans, come in redundant pairs to achieve high fault-tolerant capability. The G6 Series also provides comprehensive RAID functions to protect data against drive failure. When one or two drive fail(s), you can still enjoy continuous accessibility to the data of full integrity while the hot spare is used to restore the data volume back to its RAID-protected state. To better safeguard cached data, the G6 arrays also come with new CacheSafe technology. In the event of an unscheduled power outage, the BBU will automatically supply power to write cached data into flash module for permanent retention, which eliminates the common 72-hour battery power limitation that can cause data loss.

Easy Management

Through the feature-rich management suite, SANWatch, users can centrally manage multiple EonStor G6 subsystems locally or remotely over the LAN/WAN. In the portal window, an overview of all subsystems is displayed to provide status summary and event info. With only a few clicks, you can easily access the functions necessary to configure, manage, and monitor the arrays. Besides providing all firmware features through a user-friendly GUI, SANWatch also supports script-based configuration of multiple subsystems at a time. When critical events happen, the system would automatically notify you through various configurable methods for proactive handling. With SANWatch, initializing EonStor G6 arrays for applications and monitoring their real-time status changes are all easy to realize.

Green Technologies

Aware of the important role green IT plays in environmental sustainability, Infortrend equips all its EonStor G6 models with advanced power-saving designs. Coming with power supplies delivering more than 80% energy efficiency, dynamic cooling mechanism and intelligent drive spin-down technology, the EonStor G6 achieves outstanding energy efficiency. While benefiting the environment, the green initiative Infortrend takes also enhances business advantages with cut-down energy expenses.
