Excellent Performance for All Storage Applications

Introducing Scale-out: Fully Leverage Performance and Capacity of Multiple GS

Best for Expanding Storages for Enterprises! EonStor GS now supports scale-out feature, you can easily expand performance and capacity to more than 40PB of storage space.

In the scale-out architecture, GS can linearly increase performance and capacity for both block-level and file-level. When one GS is not able to provide enough performance or capacity, you can simply add another GS appliance to the cluster – with a maximum of 4 GS units.

In the scale-up architecture, each GS supports expansion enclosures to add up to 896 hard drives for expanding storage capacity.

Scale-out: Easy Expansion and Management

Powerful but Easy-to-Use

Single Namespace for user convenience: The GS scale-out function integrates multiple GSs into a single file system, so that all GS folders and files are located in a single root directory, which makes users’ file access convenient and simple. For example, data originally scattered in various paths (such as \\server01, \\server02, \\server03) can be stored in the same path (e.g., all data stored in \\server01), so users don’t need to worry about where the data is placed.

Auto-Balancing to reduce the burden of IT storage management: The Auto-Balancing function is an intelligent assistant for data migration. It automatically detects and suggests location for data migration based on IT-defined folder attributes and migration policies (e.g., certain data has to be stored in SSD), eliminating the burden of IT manual planning and data migration.

Drive Storage Efficiency: Get the Most from Your Budget

EonStor GS comes with inline compression and offline deduplication for Btrfs, which reduces the storage capacity required and thus saves storage costs. Furthermore, you can schedule a deduplication process—or stop it when needed—to avoid affecting performance during peak hours and maintain management flexibility.

Enterprises can leverage tier configuration, where you mix the high-performance, dual-controller GS with the cost-effective, single-controller GSe to form a cluster. For example, the GS in the cluster can be used for high-performance online data access, while the GSe is connected to high-density, 60-bay JBODs to provide large capacity for offline backup.

You can also configure the GS as a hybrid storage architecture based on application requirements, and through automatic storage tiering and SSD caching, it helps you create a high-performance, large-capacity storage system at a lower cost:

  • Automatic storage tiering (Auto-tiering) allows you to use U.2 NVMe SSD on the GS and NL-SAS/SATA HDD on expansion enclosures to leverage high performance of SSD and large capacity of HDD.
  • SSD cache uses a small number of SSDs on the GS as a cache to accelerate read performance in the SAN storage architecture. It also speeds up read/write performance and file operations in the NAS storage architecture to provide a better user experience.

Intelligent Management for SSD Optimization

EonStor GS is equipped with intelligent drive management technology, which can significantly reduce the burden of IT management.

  • The new RAID mode prevents data loss caused by simultaneous damage of multiple SSD: If SSDs reach the write limit at the same time and, thus, fail at the same time, enterprises irrevocably lose their valuable data. To avoid this, Infortrend provides a new RAID mode that ensures that SSDs have different write times and won’t fail simultaneously.
  • Optimized technology to extend SSD service life: Due to the limited available number of SSD writes, the system provides intelligent algorithms to optimize the operating characteristics of the SSD, such as reducing repeated data writes, so that the storage space of the SSD can be used optimally and the SSD lifespan can be extended.
  • Intelligent monitoring for simplified SSD management: Real-time monitoring of SSD usage and predicting the remaining lifetime. When the estimated remaining time of the SSD usage is less than few months (6/3/2/1), the system sends a notification so that users could have enough time to replace the SSD that is about to fail.

Complete Data Protection: Reduce the Risk of Data Loss

Data loss is a disaster for every enterprise. EonStor GS provides various data protection solutions for enterprise data. First, drives are protected by RAID to ensure that data remains intact when a drive failure occurs. In the backup aspect, GS supports snapshot and volume copy for local and remote backup solutions. To offer enterprises a top backup option, GS supports folder snapshot, which delivers high backup efficiency with a minimal capacity requirement.

EonStor GS also incorporates crucial security mechanisms to protect your data against ever-increasing cyber attacks. One of them is immutable object storage, a feature that safeguards data against ransomware attacks. It retains data with WORM (write once read many) storage protection, where data gets “locked” and therefore cannot be modified, deleted, overwritten, or even encrypted by ransomware. By setting data retention periods, organizations can easily comply with recordkeeping regulations, which is typically required in finance and healthcare industries, as well as government agencies. To provide an extra layer of security for administrative account access, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is also supported to reduce the risk of malicious attacks following password theft.
