GS Family
SAN+NAS+DAS
SAN, NAS, DAS and Cloud in ONE unified storage system for data storage, folder sharing and cloud backup

EonStor GS integrates block, file and object services and a cloud gateway engine in one system to fully support data storage and folder sharing. By leveraging public and private cloud storage, EonStor GS provides top data access performance and flexible capacity expansion with cloud.

SAN/DAS
High and stable performance SAN/DAS with Infortrend’s unique technology and architecture

Data is directly written to Infortrend’s block level storage, enabling better performance than competitor products that need to write first to the file level and then to the block level, resulting in too much overhead.

450K IOPS End to end, 11,000 MB/s for read, 6,400MB/s for write
( Please contact Infortrend for detailed performance information. )

A NAS built-in with diverse application services and support for multiple OS, enables hassle-free IT infrastructure deployment.

Application services includes SyncCloud, File Explorer, Syslog Server, VPN Server, Proxy Server, etc.

Public and private cloud integration for cloud backup and flexible capacity usage through Infortrend proprietary technology

The GS can integrate with public cloud and private cloud, and data can be optimally allocated between GS and cloud through smart algorithms to deliver the best performance and optimum space allocation.

Symmetric active-active controllers
Symmetric active-active controllers allow simultaneous access to the same LUN by both controllers

Both controllers are active to boost read/write bandwidth and IOPS for maximizing resource utilization. In the case of controller or network failure, the survived unit automatically takes over all I/O loading, ensuring continuous availability of file transfer. The multi-core CPU in each controller is active to provide data services, achieving 0.8 to 0.9 times faster performance with buffering for controller failover.

Block-level and SMB 3.0
Block-level and SMB 3.0 Continuous Failover prevent unexpected downtime

System operation continuity is ensured in mission-critical environments.

* Regarding network file sharing protocol, both server and client OS must support Microsoft SMB (Server Message Block) 3.0 or above.
- Windows: Since Windows 8
- Windows Server: Since Windows Server 2012
- MacOS: Since MacOS 10.10 (Yosemite)
* Network topology must be adhered to the requirement of controller failover.
Super Capacitor
Industry-leading cache protection technology: Super-capacitor with Flash, protection against data loss in the case of system power outage

The Super-capacitor will continue to supply power until the data is written to the flash so data integrity is ensured before power resumes. Super capacitors require no maintenance, last for the life of the storage system, and have no risk of fire.

Built-in Intelligent Drive Recovery (IDR) enables automatic error detection and restoration with no need to worry about disk failure

IDR offers smart media scan, which catches errors before they become a problem and copies data to good drives to prevent rebuild.

Infortrend cloud-integrated benefit

Infortrend’s self-developed cloud gateway engine integrates EonStor GS with public cloud and private cloud. Businesses can enjoy three cloud features that extend local storage with cloud capacity or make use of off-site backup and disaster recovery.

Automatic cloud backup for simplified data management and maintenance
Integration with leading cloud service providers for more diverse storage choices
THREE Cloud Options for flexible cloud applications
Cloud Backup Management
  • the EonStor GS cloud gateway engine automatically distinguishes hot data and cold data and backs up cold data to cloud.
  • EonStor GS can integrate with leading cloud services. One system can work with multiple service providers.
  • EonStor provides 3 cloud features : Cloud Cache, Cloud Backup and Cloud Tiering.
More secure and cost-effective Cloud Solutions
1. Data deduplicationn and compression

Data is compressed before being sent to cloud to reduce costs charged by cloud service providers.

2. Multi-layered Protection for On-premise Storage with Cloud

Cloud storage providers offer data encryption capabilities as a standard service but they also own the key, which can be a concern. The built-in cloud gateway engine on Infortrend EonStor GS provides an additional layer of security with its AES-256 bit encryption, as the keys are always kept locally and managed solely by end users.

Organizations can choose a suitable cloud solution based on the level of data protection, cloud storage capacity and cost considerations.

Supports high throughput for Media & Entertainment with stable performance

The storage demand for the process of media content creation requires a combination of read, write, IOPS and storage capacity. Infortrend's EonStor GS performances complement one another and can easily handle the media content creation process as shown in the illustration. The ingest, render/transcode, content delivery, edit/composite sections of the media content creation highly rely on sequential read and write performances. The content delivery, edit/composite, digital asset and archive sections of the media content creation largely rely on storage capacity and the ability to scale.
