High Scalability: By connecting to 2.5" SAS SSD JBODs, EonStor GS can hold more than 800 SSD drives in one single system.

Smart SSD Management: With the built-in intelligent algorithms, EonStor GS prevents multiple SSDs from failing at the same time and extends each SSD’s lifespan. In addition, as GS monitors SSD usage in real time, it notifies the administrator before an SSD is about to fail.


Features

Scale-out

Best Storage Expansion Solution for Enterprises! EonStor GS supports scale-out expansion, allowing you to easily expand performance and capacity on demand.

In the scale-out architecture, GS can linearly increase performance and capacity for both block-level and file-level environments. When one GS unit is no longer able to provide enough performance or capacity, you can simply add more GS appliances to form a cluster—with a maximum of 4 GS units. GS also supports scale-up expansion with expansion enclosures to add up to 896 drives to increase storage capacity.

Scale-out: Easy Expansion and Management

Powerful but Easy-to-Use

Single namespace for user convenience: The GS scale-out feature integrates multiple GS units into a single file system, where all folders and files can be accessed under a single root directory, making it easy for users to find and use data. For example, files originally stored on different GS units and scattered under different paths (e.g. \\server01, \\server02, \\server03) can be found under the same path (e.g. \\server01) in the scale-out architecture, so that users don’t need to worry about where the data is actually stored.

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

EonStor GS Powerful but Easy-to-Use

High Storage Efficiency

EonStor GS comes with inline compression and offline deduplication, 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.

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.

New Level of High Availability

EonStor GS offers active-active HA service to deliver continuous services, making it an ideal solution for business-critical applications with an extremely low tolerance for downtime. Organizations can leverage the features of the HA service to easily cope with planned or unplanned events such as outages, system maintenance, and human errors.

  • Auto-failover and failback ensure nondisruptive operations, achieving a near-zero RTO (recovery time objective): Monitored by a witness server, the HA service provides an automatic transition in service between two storage devices when one of them fails, as well as when it resumes service. With continuous availability, users will not notice an interruption in service.
  • Synchronous remote replication ensures no data loss, achieving a zero RPO (recovery point objective): The HA service constantly replicates identical and complete copies of data from one storage device to the other, so that both are ready to provide service anytime, eliminating the risk of data loss in case of an issue.
  • Fully utilize storage resources with active-active architecture: By assigning both storage devices to deliver service simultaneously, you get to optimize your storage resources to a greater extent compared to active-passive clusters.
New Level of High Availability

Smart Management for SSD

EonStor GS U.2 NVMe all-flash storage and EonStor GS SAS SSD all-flash storage have an intelligent algorithm specially designed for SSD. The algorithm not only reduces the total amount of writes on an SSD to prolong its lifespan but also prevents multiple SSDs from failing at the same time and causing data loss. In addition, EonStor GS can estimate the remaining lifespan of each SSD and timely remind the administrator to replace the SSD that is about to fail.

Complete Data Protection

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 supports WORM, a crucial security feature that safeguards data against ransomware attacks. It makes sure the data gets “locked” and therefore cannot be modified, deleted, overwritten, or even encrypted by ransomware.

Rich Host Interfaces

As there is a wide range of enterprise applications, the required communication interface for each application may differ. Infortrend provides rich communication interfaces in SAN environments, including 8Gb/s FC, 16Gb/s FC, 32Gb/s FC, 1Gb/s iSCSI, 10Gb/s iSCSI, 40Gb/s iSCSI and 12Gb/s SAS to allow complete compatibility with all applications. Furthermore, 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE ports are also offered in network environments to provide fast and reliable data sharing and data transfer quality.

Rich Host Interfaces for Various Workloads

Cloud-Integrated Solution

The integration of enterprise data with cloud is one of the future trends. EonStor GS can help you move files or block-level data to public or private clouds according to your needs. In addition to low-cost access to data that is not frequently used, cloud integration can also be used to back up data to the cloud space to establish a remote backup structure, creating a highly available data center.

Cloud-Integrated Solution
