EonStor DS 1000

Comprehensive Gen2 SAN storage with a SMB-friendly price

EonStor DS 1000 systems offer 2U to 4U form factors with 12-bay 16-bay, and 24-bay configurations, scalable with up to high density 60-bay expansion enclosure. SMB users depend on solid reliability, with the choice of super capacitors that provide continuous power during outages. Systems can be totally customized when placing orders, with variety of protocols, such as FC, iSCSI, SAS, InfiniBand and FCoE, for flexible hybrid interfaces.

The new DS 1000 Gen2 with support for SAS 12Gb/s drive side chip is an upgrade from Gen1's SAS 6Gb/s to remove bottlenecks and offer a faster performance
