Infortrend offers wide-ranging storage products from SAN, NAS, to Unified, and to customers from SMB to Large Enterprise.

Infortend’s experiences in redundant and high availability hardware design and proprietary firmware/ software integration capability set us apart from other Linux-based NAS providers.

  • Over 20+ years of focus on the block device design resulted a highly streamlined and efficient firmware architecture to deliver on price-performance. Our products ranked at top in SPC benchmarks is a testament to that.
  • We also offered true Unified Storage with support to Fibre Channel device, and our firmware supports native iSCSI channel implementation, not through OS simulation like other Linux based NAS, which resulted in big difference in performance.
  • Our intelligent firmware can automatically adjust the data processing mode for the IO behavior of the underlying application, whether it is small file based (such as database) or large file based applications (such as Broadcasting/Media Editing), to deliver amazing performance.
  • Unlike other Linux-based NAS rely on OS for their drive handling capabilities which resulted in performance degradation with increasing number of drives, Infortrend’s unique drive handling capability offers linear scale-up performance with increasing number of drives.
  • Our Intelligent Drive Recovery (IDR) technology can also inspect and recover drive data to prevent time-consuming rebuild process and offer truly competitive NAS solution that excels in price-performance.
