Cloud Integrated Solution

The explosive growth of Mobile, Cloud, Social, Big Data, and Internet of Things (IOT) drives enterprises of all industries to innovate in new business models and services. To stay relevant and compete in today's fast-growing digital economy, modern businesses internalize the concept of Enterprise cloud solution with hybrid cloud infrastructure, i.e. combine company internal cloud gateway storage and rented storage and data service from public cloud providers, like Amazon S3/Microsoft Azure/Google Cloud/Aliyun. As an alternative, companies can build private cloud by their own with OpenStack. Infortrend offers a complete solution for Hybrid cloud, Private cloud and complete product line for your enterprise cloud solution.

Hybrid Cloud

Integrate Your On-premises Data Center with Public Cloud

Running daily operations with public cloud services, you may experience such network issues as high latency and low throughput, which slow down processing speed causing system underperformance, delay task completion, and reduce overall productivity.

EonCloud Gateway, a EonOne-native hybrid cloud solution with intuitive data management features, help to avoid these issues. EonCloud can be used for several useful enterprise applications, including cloud caching feature to speed up your cloud data access, server backup with cloud snapshot and virtual machines, file sharing for cross office/hospital, cloud data service and cloud surveillance solution.

Easy Integration with Existing IT Environment

You can apply Infortrend's EonCloud Gateway to file-level and block-level storage, which supports the most common file systems, so that you can access the data stored in the cloud via such protocols as NFS, CIFS, FTP, Rsync, Fiber Channel, and iSCSI. With this feature, you don't need to replan the internal information management system or modify the application software to match the cloud platform. Also, for your convenience, the most popular public cloud providers, such as Amazon S3/Microsoft Azure/Google Cloud/Aliyun and OpenStack, are supported.

Easy Integration with Existing IT Environment

Lightning-speed Cloud Files Access

Since the cloud is accessed through the Internet, the access speed becomes slower and the latency is higher. Infortrend EonCloud Gateway acts as a cache for cloud, allowing you to store the frequently-accessed data in the local storage. This feature automatically adjusts the advanced cache policies for specific cloud files so that the access performance for the most files is similar to that of a local storage.

Enterprise Data Protection

Preventing data loss is always the biggest issue for enterprises when storing data in the cloud. Infortrend EonCloud Gateway supports data encryption to protect enterprise data. When integrated with a cloud system, all transfers to the cloud are also SSL encrypted for secure data transmission.

Reduced Costs of Cloud Storage and Network

Cloud storage costs are calculated by data transfers and the size of used storage space. With EonCloud Gateway’s data compression and deduplication functions, the data transfer speed increases, while the costs for network bandwidth and cloud storage decreases.

Private Cloud

Build Your Enterprise Private Cloud with OpenStack

OpenStack is a popular Open Source Cloud Computing platform designed to meet the needs of private cloud data center regardless of its size, as it’s simple to implement and massively scalable.

For building private cloud environments with OpenStack, Infortrend storage support Cinder with official certified driver and can be deployed as an underlying data storage in OpenStack Cinder.

Use Cases

Backup of On-Premises Data to the Cloud

With EonCloud backup feature, enterprises can back up any type of files to the cloud, e.g. such data as large volumes of daily work files and VDI for use of company employees can be scheduled for automatic backup, which allows to greatly reduce the management resource. Moreover, when a disaster at the local site happens, thanks to cloud disaster recovery feature, the backup data can be downloaded back to the local site.

200GB Data Daily Backup (Pharmaceutical Company)

This pharmaceutical company backs up 200GB of data to their Infortrend GS storage on daily basis, using DPM (Data Protection Manager) and then uploads up to 200TB of data from the GS storage to the cloud. By creating two backup copies both on the local GS storage and the cloud, they can recover all the data if any unexpected event occurs.

200GB Virtual Machines’ Data Daily Backup (WuXi AppTec)

WuXi AppTec backs up 8 virtual machines daily (200GB/day) to their local storage using Symantec Backup Exec, then this data is backed up to their Infortrend GS storage (with 200TB space) and further to the cloud.

WuXi AppTec also relies on Infortrend's native features to deduplicate and compress data, maximizing their storage space and data transmission speed.

VDI’s Data Backup (Hospital Based in Southern China)

This hospital adopted Infortrend storage to build a VMware environment to run VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) for the hospital staff. They also required a tiered storage to speed up data delivery for their PACS and HIS systems. To ensure data availability, they back up data not only on their local Infortrend storage but also to Alibaba Cloud via EonCloud Gateway, achieving a geographically diverse architecture.

Cloud File Sharing

With EonCloud flexible cache policy, enterprise HQ office can decide which files should be kept at the local site and which in the cloud based on data access frequency, file type, and file name keyword, helping to fulfill the demands of different scenarios. After the files from HQ office are uploaded to the cloud following a certain caching policy, the branch office can set the corresponding caching policy to download the files back to the branch office site; the whole process can be done automatically, thus, achieving instant cloud file sharing.

The Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine (SAHZU)

This hospital adopted Infortrend GS storage as mega cache to speed up data access. Locally, the Infortrend storage provides the hospital staff with an easy access to all in-hospital files. Remotely, they rely on EonCloud Gateway to handle all the data traffic between the local end and the cloud - especially for the daily task of uploading around 88GB new data to the cloud via rsync.
