This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2013.05.27
Infortrend Corporation announced the release of a 16G FC storage solutions.
Built upon the EonStor DS G7i platform, these new models provide a range of options for SMEs and enterprises looking to optimise and future proof their storage infrastructure and are available worldwide for the same price as our existing 8G FC storages until end of August 2013.
As the demand for increased bandwidth and higher throughput increases, so does the level of technology that powers datacentres, cloud services and high-volume servers. With the introduction of 16G FC, a natural evolution of FC, IT departments are given access to an FC which doubles the throughput of 8GB FC and better suited to run any multi-core processor, SSD-driven applications and services. Furthermore, the 16G FC is able to meet these service demands while retaining compatibility with existing 8G and 4G FC infrastructure. By introducing the 16G FC models, Infortrend is taking the lead in providing solutions for performance-demanding applications and services.
Thomas Kao, senior director of product planning at Infortrend, states: "The constant demands for faster and higher performance never ceases, with enterprises and SMEs always looking to optimise their current systems as well as to future proof them."
He added: "Upgrading to 16G FC represents a great leap for those who have invested in Fibre infrastructure, and Infortrend is proud to release the world's first 16G FC storage solutions that have the power, speed and proven efficiencies of the G7i Platform to deliver the performance that companies need at an industry-leading price point."
