(Media-Newswire.com) - TAIPEI, Taiwan, February 11th, 2014 – Infortrend® ( Public TPE: 2495 ) now offers automated storage tiering and remote replication features on all EonStor DS 3000 RAID systems for SMB and enterprise SAN deployments. Storage tiering allows users to enhance performance and save costs by assigning applications to the most suitable drive types, while remote replication delivers highly effective protection against major disruptions such as natural disasters.
EonStor DS 3000 systems now support automated storage tiering, which requires virtually no user intervention or IT expertise and can intelligently monitor storage and apply tiering to maximize resource utilization. With tiering using SSD for high demand applications and cost effective NL-SAS drives for non-critical storage and archiving, users can improve SAN read speeds by up to 15 times and write performance by up to 35 times while having to purchase less hardware. As an example, one tiering RAID system with four SSDs and 12 NL-SAS drives offers better performance and capacity utilization than a non-tiering RAID system plus JBOD enclosure with 32 SAS drives ( 10k RPM ).
Remote replication licenses on EonStor DS 3000 systems help customers prevent major data loss by backing up media to an offsite location. Should storage experience adverse physical conditions due to a disaster or system failure, having a backup at an unaffected remote site means work resumes quickly. The EonStor DS 3000 series includes attractively priced E-designated models that arrive with added onboard iSCSI hosts to make remote replication even easier while being more cost effective as there is no need to purchase iSCSI hosts separately.
“We continue to expand the capabilities of EonStor DS 3000 RAID systems to make them even more attractive as all-round solutions for business and enterprise storage requirements. Storage tiering is especially useful with the growing popularity of high speed SSD, while remote replication is a must-have for true data protection and assured availability. We believe these features should be offered on as many storage systems as possible, as customers truly need them”, said Thomas Kao, Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.
