EonStor DS 1000 series storage systems deliver among the best cost to performance ratios for SMB users of all entry-level RAID solutions. Models available in diverse form factors: 12-bay, 16-bay, and compact 24-bay. All include 1Gb/s iSCSI ports per controller to expand networking and connectivity – an architecture created with surveillance applications in mind, which need fast interconnect to multiple clients. Up to 316 drives in LFF and 360 in SFF may be attached via JBOD enclosures to each system. With 6TB drive support, that means up to 1.9PB in capacity made available.

Performance design for your suitable budget for SMB

EonStor DS 1000 system, entry-level enterprise-class storage system designed with unprecedented in-segment performance. Available for single, dual controller and Turbo performance models to meet different budget for SMB.

Write (MB/s) 1,900

High scalability

EonStor DS 1000 systems support as many as 360 drives through compatible expansion enclosures. Scalability is a much more costeffective solution than buying additional storage systems, resulting in additional savings.

Storage acceleration with SSD Cache

EonStor DS 1000 systems support large high speed SSD cache pools. SSD Cache speeds up read performance for priority data, and boosts cache pool capacities up to 3.2TB. As many as four SSDs per controller can be used, including SATA disks. In addition to faster read speeds, SSD Cache reduces performance impact compared to spin-drive caches with rapid warm up and less drive wear. Configuring and managing SSD Cache pooling is easy via the intuitive SANWatch UI.

Storage Acceleration with SSD Cache

Hybrid host interface with onboard iSCSI

EonStor DS 1000 models incorporate four 1Gb/s iSCSI ports on each controller by default, which can be added to by choosing 8Gb/s or 16Gb/s Fibre Channel, 6Gb/s or 12Gb/s SAS, or 10Gb/s iSCSI to go alongside them. As deployments strive for maximum efficiency and resource consolidation, a hybrid host interface design is of great value, as it supports better performance as well as wider connectivity.

Super capacitor or BBU with flash for data protection

Super capacitors do not require replacement and cover the life of the system, ensuring emergency cache power to prevent mission-critical data loss. Alternatively, customers can choose the flexibility of a hotswappable backup battery unit (BBU) with flash, which also safeguards against downtime due to power outages.

Comprehensive data services

Affordable for smaller businesses, the EonStor DS 1000 series offers enterprise-grade data services such as snapshot and volume copy/mirror to make multiple backups simple and quick. Thin provisioning helps with intelligent storage utilization, while optional 4- level automated storage tiering is the solution you need to leverage high speed drives for frequently-used data. For security and backup, remote replication offers dependable disaster recovery by creating offsite datasets that stay operational even if your main location goes offline. Compatibility with SED (self-encrypting drives) delivers unbreakable defense against disk theft or misplacement and also expedites data deletion.
