Infortrend Storage Systems Support Flexible Super-speed 56Gb/s InfiniBand, 40Gb/s iSCSI and 16Gb/s FC Connectivity

New Taipei City, Taiwan, 17th January 2017 – Infortrend® Technology, Inc. (TWSE: 2495) today announced its storage systems provide flexible super-speed host interface support for 56Gb/s InfiniBand, 40Gb/s iSCSI and 4 x 16Gb/s Fibre Channel ports, delivering optimum bandwidth and throughput for resource intensive and mission critical applications, such as high-performance computing, media editing and big data analytics.

Storage networking technologies continue to advance to meet the high-speed and low-latency requirements by demanding applications in today’s enterprise environments. Infortrend storage supports leading-edge and wide-ranging host interfaces so that customers can choose the connection protocol(s) most suitable for their application requirements and infrastructure needs. Furthermore, the I/O ports are interchangeable on a modular-design host board to provide organizations future-proof flexibility when planning or upgrading their infrastructure to meet growing storage requirements as their business scale expands.

iSCSI, scaling to 40G speed, targets enterprise data center, cloud and big data applications requiring high-performance SAN-based storage while preserving network deployment simplicity. The 4 x 16Gb/s FC ports enable high 64G throughput, supporting the most demanding virtualization applications when leveraging multicore processors, memory cache and SSD. InfiniBand is increasingly used in data centers and HPC as it drives the most aggressive performance roadmap among I/O fabric architectures.

“We understand customers’ needs are constantly evolving and so are network interconnect technologies. We are committed to keeping abreast of the latest technology developments and ensuring Infortrend products always deliver high performance, optimum flexibility and forward-looking features,” said Thomas Kao, Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.
