RAID systems developed for flexible enterprise IP SAN deployment, expansion, and data migration. High availability and large capacity E75-2230 products offer the performance of 10Gb/s iSCSI on hybrid host interfaces that also support legacy 1Gb/s iSCSI. Combined with superior reliability and simplified management, scalability offers growth to 4,800 drives and 18PB in capacity. Data services include thin provisioning, snapshot, and auto tiering, as high availability is assured by redundant controllers and power supplies.

With the Infortrend ESVA iSCSI Series, users can leverage their current IP network investments to consolidate a powerful, reliable and flexible iSCSI SAN. When data storage demands increase with business growth, ESVA helps users deal with their diverse and changing application needs in a cost-effective way. Based on Enterprise Scalable Virtualized Architecture, the ESVA iSCSI SAN provides mid-range enterprises an ideal choice to optimize return on investment, simplify storage infrastructure and maximize application productivity.

Optimized Return on Investment

With storage virtualization technology, the capacity and computing power of multiple ESVA systems can be consolidated into a storage pool. For the most efficient utilization of pooled capacity, ESVA arrays support thin provisioning. Capacity is dynamically allocated to applications when data is written, while minimizing space,power and cooling expenses for large, under utilized data volumes commonin traditional storage environments. By enabling users to flexibly assign applications to four available tiers distinguished by different drive types and RAID levels, and offering automated data migration, automated storage tiering on ESVA helps users meet a wide array of service level requirements. ESVA also comes with an intelligent access prioritizingmechanism, creating differnt priorities for data volumes based on actual needs. Combined with energy-efficient design, ESVA's advanced technologies enable you to make the most of your storage investment.

Simplified Storage Infrastructure

ESVA simplifies storage management by enabling a single point of administration. Scaling the ESVA storage pool is also a very easy task. Expansion enclosures can be connected to the ESVA system for increased capacity. If you want to increase capacity and promote performance at the same time, you can scale out the virtualized foundation by adding additional ESVA systems. All scaling and configuration tasks can be done online. When a new system is added, the distributed load balancing technology will dynamically balance workloads among storage systems for increased processing power. Power is increased with capacity expansion, allowing it to handle even the most demanding highperformance applications. If you remove a system from the pool, the load-balancing technology will also automatically migrate data to maintain the optimized performance without disrupting service.

Maximized Application Productivity

In the competitive business world, downtime can lead to profit loss and threaten business continuity. With the revolutionary ESVA architecture, downtime for storage scaling is eliminated. ESVA also includes storage-based replication capabilities. Local replication features spaceefficient snapshots that can serve as granular recovery points, based on which files can be restored and data can be rolled back. Local replication also offers full data copies within a storage pool, while remote replication enables users to create full data copies across storage pools. These data copies can be readily leveraged by host applications to resume operations when the original data is corrupt. By strategically deploying snapshot images and full data copies, you can achieve the highest data availability with a minimum service downtime in the event of logical or physical errors.

Advanced Hardware Designs

All ESVA systems are based on High Availability (HA) modular design to achieve high faulttolerant capability. 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 the flash module for permanent rentention. Green IT can benefit with business and the environment, and Infortrend enriches the ESVA Series with energy efficient deigns, contributing to environmental sustainability while cutting energy costs for companies.
