Infortrend’s next-generation 8Gb/s Fibre Channel (FC) storage system - F16F-R4840 - is designed to support a reliable and easy-to-manage SAN for throughput-demanding applications. Featuring blazing performance, flexible scalability, robust availability and advanced technology, it helps users meet harsh data center demands in the most cost-effective way.
High-speed SAN with Powerful Scalability
Seeing 8G FC as the common protocol in future enterprise SAN, Infortrend furnishes all its EonStor G6 Fibre-to-Fibre models with two 8G FC host ports on each controller. Combining high-speed FC technology with enterprise-class FC drives, they can enable no-delay, smooth operations to satisfactorily meet the service levels required by your throughput-demanding applications. When data grow out of the capacity threshold of a single subsystem, F16F models can be expanded to house a maximum of 112 drives through expansion enclosures housing FC (F16F-J4000-R) or SATA drives (A16F-J2430-G). By flexibly intermixing high-performance and large-capacity storage, you can most efficiently leverage your budgets to fulfill various data requirements. Coupled with the broad support for enterprise-level OS, such as Windows Server 2008, Solaris, Linux, and server virtualization, such as VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, the Fibre-to-Fibre arrays can serve as data storage for top-tier applications.
Robust Availability and Reliability
The EonStor G6 Series is based on High Availability (HA) modular design. All main hardware modules, including controllers, power supplies, and cooling fans, come in redundant pairs to achieve high fault-tolerant capability. The G6 Series also provides comprehensive RAID functions to protect data against drive failure. If one or two drive fail(s), you can still enjoy continuous accessibility to the data of full integrity and later use hot spare to restore the data volume back to its RAID-protected state. To better safeguard cached data, the G6 arrays also come with new CacheSafe technology. In the event of an unscheduled power outage, the Battery Backup Unit (BBU) will automatically supply power to write cached data into flash module for permanent retention, which eliminates the common 72-hour battery power limitation that can cause data loss.
Through the feature-rich management suite, SANWatch, users can centrally manage multiple EonStor G6 subsystems locally or remotely over the LAN/WAN. In the portal window, an overview of all subsystems is displayed to provide status summary and event info. With only a few clicks, you can easily access the functions necessary to configure, manage, and monitor the arrays. Besides providing all firmware features through a user-friendly GUI, SANWatch also supports script-based configuration of multiple subsystems at a time. When critical events happen, the system would automatically notify you through various configurable methods for proactive handling. With SANWatch, initializing EonStor G6 arrays for applications and monitoring their real-time status changes are all easy to realize.
Aware of the important role green IT plays in environmental sustainability, Infortrend equips all its EonStor G6 models with advanced power-saving designs. Coming with 80 PLUS-certified power supplies delivering more than 85% of energy efficiency, dynamic cooling mechanism and intelligent multi-level drive spin-down technology, the EonStor G6 achieves outstanding energy efficiency. While benefiting the environment, the green initiative Infortrend takes also enhances business advantages with cut-down energy expenses.
