Eonstor ESDS B12S-R2240
Affordable and Flexible Storage Solutions Featuring Enterprise-Class Data Protection
The ESDS B12S-R2240 is a 6Gb/s SAS-based storage system that helps SMBs easily deploy a direct-attached storage (DAS) environment. Accommodating 12 small form factor (SFF) 2.5 -inch drives in a high-density 1U enclosure, the dual-controller ESDS B12S-R2240 delivers optimal performance density. Its enterprise-class data protection and outstanding performance can generate significant business advantages.
Downtime can have serious consequences for enterprises and SMBs. The challenge for SMBs is to pro-actively prevent downtime within a limited budget. With today's price points in mind, EonStor DS provides comprehensive data protection to ensure the highest data availability for Fibre Channel and iSCSI-host systems in storage area networks (SAN) and SAS-host systems in direct attached storage (DAS) environments. Coupled with advanced hardware, modular architecture, easy and intuitive management and exceptional price-performance, EonStor DS brings price-conscious companies a decisive competitive edge by making IT efficiency keep up with growing storage needs.
Data availability is critical to any business operation. Infortrend’s EonStor DS storage solution features high-availability hardware designs with redundant, hot-swappable hardware components, such as RAID controllers, power supplies and cooling fans, to eliminate single point of failure. Hardware RAID protection ensures data accessibility during drive failure. In the event of a power outage, CacheSafe technology will automatically leverage power of the Battery Backup Unit (BBU) to safeguard cached data by writing it to a flash module for permanent retention. To protect valuable data sets against more critical threats, EonStor DS also supports snapshot and volume copy/mirror features. Data availability can be achieved with minimal downtime in case of human errors or data volume failure by employing these features. Leverging Infortrend's worlclass RAID engine, the EonStor DS SAS-series delivers excellent performance for demanding business applications. The models supporting Small Form Factor (SFF) drives can further increase performance density to support highly IO-intensive applications.
The EonStor DS storage solution supports dynamic scaling to aid in the planning for future storage growth while satisfying current storage needs. Flexible drive type and capacity support (2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SAS drives and various drive sizes) satisfies current applications and enables you to accommodate future needs. A single EonStor DS SAS-series storage system can be expanded up to 240 drives to meet the proliferation of storage growth. The “scale as you grow” flexibility of the EonStor DS storage solution minimizes upfront investments and provides the best overall Total Cost of Acquisition (TCA).
Intuitive and Easy Management
Storage management should be simple. The EonStor DS storage solution includes a comprehensive management software suite, SANWatch, to centrally manage multiple EonStor DS subsystems over a standard TCP/IP network. EonStor DS status and event information summary can be viewed on the portal window. Necessary functions to configure, manage and monitor the EonStor DS are only a few clicks away. Besides providing all firmware features through a user-friendly GUI, SANWatch also supports script-based configuration of multiple EonStor DS subsystems simultaneously. Automatic critical event notifications can be customized to suit the most critical storage environment. SANWatch will guide users through initializing, configuring and maintaining the EonStor DS every step of the way.
High Energy Efficiency
Contributing to environmental sustainability, the EonStor DS storage solution enables energy cost savings while maintaining performance. It is equipped with power saving designs such as high-efficiency power supplies, dynamic cooling mechanism and intelligent multi-level drive spin-down technology.
