Comprehensive Cloud Solution for Enterprises

Infortrend’s EonCloud Gateway is designed for enterprises to migrate their data between local storage and the clouds in a transparent manner, and provides connectivity to major cloud services such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, OpenStack Swift, Alibaba Cloud, Baidu Cloud and Tencent Cloud. EonCloud Gateway offers differentiated features such as cloud cache, backup and tiering for cloud data management.

Comprehensive Cloud Solution for Enterprises

Sync with the Cloud in 3 Steps

With EonCloud Gateway, you don't need to change the IT environment that you're used to such as installing a new software or setting up a new server. You can seamlessly connect your local storage to the cloud and simply share your files to anyone, anywhere in the world.


Benefits Highlights
Easy Cloud Integration with the Existing IT Environment and Applications

EonCloud Gateway supports file-level and block-level data transmission as well as data migration between local storage and the clouds through common protocols (e.g. NFS/CIFS/iSCSI/Fibre Optic). Therefore, companies do not need to re-engineer their existing IT systems or applications, so they can greatly reduce the difficulty of cloud integration.

Easy Cloud Integration with the Existing IT Environment and Applications
Flexible Cache Policies Improve Efficiency of Data Access

EonCloud Gateway allows enterprises to speed up cloud data access by caching data that are frequently used and offering different types of cache policies. IT personnel can set up preferred policies with just a few clicks.

  • Default
    The system will first clear caches of any files/folders that are unused for the longest time. This action applies globally to all files and folders regardless of the provided expression.
  • High Priority
    The system will set the highest retention priority to caches of specified files/folders, and will clear them last when the local cache capacity is full.
  • Local Only
    The system will keep newly written data on the local storage and will not upload them to the cloud.
  • Low Priority
    The system will set the lowest retention capacity for caches of specified files/folders, and will clear them first when the local cache capacity is full.
  • Not Applicable
    The system will not create files that match specified file paths and names, and will deny access to existing files that match.
  • Uncacheable for Read
    For any read access to specified files/folders, the system will not cache them locally.
  • Uncacheable for Write
    For any write access to specified files/folders, the system will upload newly written data to the cloud and will not cache them locally.
Flexible Cache Policies Improve Efficiency of Data Access
Secure and Protect Enterprise Data

Data breach has always been the biggest concern for enterprises to put any data on the cloud. EonCloud Gateway supports:

  • Decryption with a unique encryption key, ensuring no one else can decrypt data on the public clouds.
  • SSL-encrypted transmissions to and from the cloud to ensure additional data security.

Saving Cost on Cloud Storage and Network Bandwidth

Cloud storage cost is generally determined by the amount of cloud space and bandwidth usage. With the built-in data compression and deduplication features, EonCloud Gateway can effectively minimize relevant costs by reducing data size for cloud storage and transmission.

  • Compress: Minimizing data size for fast transmission and efficient storage.
  • Deduplication: Eliminating duplicate or redundant data to free up cloud storage space.

Product Highlights
Quick Setup Methods - Fast and Simple

EonCloud Gateway provides five quick setup methods to connect your local shared folders and local volumes to the cloud.

  • Cloud File Cache
    The system uploads a local shared folder’s data to the cloud for secure preservation. On the local storage, the system caches the shared folder’s highly-used data to allow immediate access.
Cloud File Cache
  • Cloud File Sync
    The system syncs a local shared folder to the cloud to keep your data up-to-date. The folder’s data remain available on the cloud even when the local storage is down.
Cloud File Sync
  • Cloud Volume Replication
    The system replicates a local volume to the cloud, and syncs local changes to the cloud to keep your data up-to-date. The volume’s data remain available on the cloud for immediate recovery.
Cloud Volume Replication
  • Cloud Archiving Storage
    The system uploads all files to the cloud for secure preservation, and uses a local volume as a buffer storage for file uploads.
Cloud Archiving Storage
  • Cloud Tiering
    The system separates a local volume into two tiers according to data usage frequency: highly-used data are stored on the local storage for immediate access, while lesser-used data are securely preserved on the cloud.
Cloud Tiering
File Permission

EonCloud Gateway can sync the ACL (Access Control List) of files across multiple storage devices via the cloud, and retain their read-write permissions for convenient and consistent access control.

File Permission
Monitor

EonCloud Gateway comes with detailed reports and tools for IT administrators to monitor cloud connection status and system performance to allow IT personnel to modify settings immediately.

  • Cloud status overview - IT personnel can check the cloud status: connected/pause…
  • Network data transmission capacity
  • Local access data capacity
  • Cache hit rate/usage

Usage Scenario

EonCloud Gateway comes with multiple cloud management, performance, and data protection features for enterprises to meet their unique needs.

Strong Performance
  • Block- and File-level Cloud Cache
    In the cache mode, all the data are stored in the cloud, with frequently accessed data cached to the local site for quick access. This smart cache mode improves both data access speed and storage efficiency.
Block- and File-level Cloud Cache
  • Block-level Cloud Tiering
    EonCloud Gateway enables enterprises to integrate their local storage and cloud storage into a tiered storage system: the cloud storage tier is used to store lesser-accessed cold data, while the local storage tier keeps frequently-accessed hot data for quick access.
Block-Level Cloud Tiering
Secure Data Protection
  • File-level Cloud Sync
    EonCloud Gateway keeps your data up-to-date in the cloud and local sites through one-way and two-way sync. What’s better, data syncing enables enterprises to keep complete business data on both sites, making disaster recovery easy and fast.
File-Level Cloud Sync
  • Block-level Cloud Backup
    Enterprises can store their data in both the local and the cloud storage, with the cloud serving as a remote backup site.
Block-Level Cloud Backup

FAQ
Do you still maintain SyncCloud and Cloud Gateway?

Yes, we still maintain SyncCloud and Cloud Gateway, but we won’t provide new features or improve the performance.

What if I buy a Cloud Gateway license and then upgrade the system firmware?

Your license will be upgraded to the Enterprise license for EonCloud Gateway. Cloud Gateway remains available on the system.
When you connect to a cloud bucket previously connected to Cloud Gateway, you will be prompted to switch to EonCloud Gateway and migrate your Cloud Gateway connections to it for use.
