Infortrend Launches EonStor DS 3024B Small Form Factor Storage for 2.5" Drives
Press release date: April 1, 2014
TAIPEI – Infortrend® (Public TPE: 2495) today announced EonStor DS 3024B small form factor 2U 24-bay systems for 2.5" drives. They enable higher density storage with lower space requirements and modest power consumption while retaining EonStor DS 3000 advantages. Those include SSD support for better performance and comprehensive data services such as remote replication and automated storage tiering.
EonStor DS 3024B systems pack more drives into smaller chassis compared to 3.5"-based units. They offer higher storage density and are ideal for implementing SSD for faster access to data and overall better storage performance. Another advantage of SFF systems are lower space requirements, allowing users to make effective use of office floor area. SFF systems designed for 2.5" drives also draw less electricity for power savings and environmentally-friendly operation.
EonStor DS 3024B data services provide great value. Systems support remote replication for disaster recovery and automated storage tiering, which allocates frequently-accessed data to SSD, resulting in higher performance. Snapshot, local replication, and thin provisioning are standard. Host interface options include 8Gb/s or 16Gb/s Fibre Channel, 6Gb/s SAS, and 1Gb/s iSCSI or 10Gb/s iSCSI, with hybrid hosts increasing versatility, as Fibre Channel can be linked to mission critical applications while iSCSI is best-suited to remote replication.
"We designed EonStor DS 3024B models as 2.5"-dedicated storage, offering faster, more compact, and higher density systems. We want to give customers highly efficient solutions which are small in form factor but have the features and services of our EonStor 3000 series," stated Thomas Kao, Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.
