Store More, Manage Less

Effortlessly store your rapidly growing digital assets within limited rack space using our high-density storage appliances.

With our EonStor GS models featuring 4U 40/60/90-bay designs, you can store more materials using fewer appliances. This means you can reduce the number of appliances you need to manage, the number of switch ports required, total power consumption, and most importantly, less rack space - all leading to a lower total cost of ownership.

Store More, Manage Less
Scale Flexibly with Your Business

Our storage solutions offer both scale-out and scale-up capabilities, allowing you to expand both performance and capacity as your media assets or performance requirements grow. This eliminates the need for forecasting future needs or managing data silos at an additional cost and effort.

Scale Flexibly with Your Business
Make Your Content Safe and Available

Rest assured that your digital assets are protected against data loss with RAID protection on drives. Our storage solutions also feature redundant controller design, eliminating a single controller failure to ensure smooth and uninterrupted workflows.
