Powered by Infortrend’s new-generation RAID engine, the EonStor G6 SCSI-to-SAS series advances the throughput power and scalability SCSI arrays are capable of to a new level. These advanced storage systems combine the protocol of time-proven reliability with the latest technology to help users rejuvenate their existing SCSI investments to meet harsher data demands.

SCSI-host Storage Delivering Unprecedented Performance and Scalability
For more than 20 years, SCSI has been the predominant protocol in data centers. Even until now when Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is gradually replacing it as the succeeding standard for enterprise server and storage environments, many users still trust their Direct-Attached Storage (DAS) deployment on SCSI-host storage. To help users leverage new technology while protecting current investment, Infortrend delivers the EonStor G6 SCSI-to-SAS series. With ASIC667 core technology and four Ultra-320 SCSI host ports, the subsystems provide outstanding processing power to satisfactorily deal with even data-intensive applications. The SCSI-to-SAS models also come with great scalability. When a single S16U subsystem can not support the necessary capacity, users can connect it with expansion enclosures (S16S-J1000-S) for up to 112 drives or daisy-chain additional subsystems or other SCSI devices. By intermixing SAS drives in the installation, tiered storage can be built to meet diverse applications needs at great cost-efficiency.
Robust Availability and Reliability
The EonStor G6 SCSI-to-SAS Series is based on High Availability (HA) modular design. The 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 Silver-certified power supplies delivering more than 85% 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.
