Infortrend Technology, Inc. has launched U.2 NVMe SSD EonStor DS 4000U all-flash SAN storage solution to boost IO/s and throughput in such applications as virtualization, database, video editing, and HPC.
It is a HA storage designed for enterprises utilizing block-level storage services. Due to increasing market trend, it now features support of the U.2 NVMe technology to provide performance and cost-effectiveness. Each storage host can be installed with 24xU.2 SSDs through the high-speed and low-latency PCIe interface, providing 1,000,000 IO/s and 1GB/s performance which allows the product to fulfill multiple I/O requests of VMs, HPC servers, database data queries, etc. Moreover, users can scale up capacity to more than 7PB with up to 448 SSD+HDD drives. In hybrid configuration, the auto-tiering function automatically allocates data to tiers to provide better storage efficiency.
With a built-in algorithm, EonStor DS reduces the data written to SSD and extends their service life, which helps to avoid simultaneous failure of multiple SSD and enhance data protection. For minimizing IT management burden, it also predicts the remaining life (days) of the SSD based on the workload, and actively send out notifications to remind users when SSD replacement is needed. It is equipped with a complete data protection mechanism: while multiple RAID levels prevent data loss due to HDD damage, snapshots and remote replication functions realize local and remote backup, and supercapacitor ensures that data is not lost when the system is powered off.
“EonStor DS 4000U supports today’s enterprises’ top choice technology – NVMe U.2 SSD to offer high IO/s and low latency for all kinds of enterprise SAN environments more cost-effectively,” said Frank Lee, senior director, product planning.
