Infortrend ESVA F60-2830
True Reliability, Unlimited Scalability and Exceptional Price and Performance
The Infortrend ESVA F60-2830 is designed to support a powerful, reliable and flexible Fibre Channel (FC) SAN. Featuring 6Gb/s SAS drive connectivity, it can satisfactorily handle demanding transactional workloads. By consolidating up to 12 ESVA systems into a storage pool, the maximum capacity can be further expanded to 1344 drives. The as-needed scaling allows users to increase storage for top-tier applications in the most cost-effective manner.
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 storage capacity and bandwidth, ESVA systems support thin provisioning and an intelligent access prioritizing mechanism on the virtual architecture. 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.
Simplified Storage Infrastructure
ESVA simplifies storage management by enabling a single point of administration. Scaling the storage pool is also a very easy task and can be done without disrupting service. Each ESVA system can be scaled for increased capacity by connecting it to expansion enclosures. If you want to increase capacity and performance at the same time, you can also scale out the virtualized foundation by adding additional ESVA systems. When a new system is added, the distributed load balancing technology will dynamically balance workloads among storage systems and increase processing power.
Maximized Application Productivity
In the competitive business world, downtime not only causes profit loss but can inflict damage on corporate reputations. The revolutionary architecture of the ESVA eliminates planned downtime for storage scaling. To support business continuity, it also comes with storage-based replication capabilities. Local replication offers snapshot images and full data copies in a single storage pool, while remote replication enables users to deploy full data copies across storage pools. The hybrid models F70 and F75 feature four iSCSI channels that help users achieve highly cost-effective remote replication. You enjoy the highest data availability and minimized 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 fault-tolerant capability. For better cached data protection, the ESVA systems come with built-in CacheSafe technology. In the event of a power outage, the BBU will automatically supply power to write cached data into flash memory for permanent retention. Infortrend enriches the ESVA Series with energy efficient designs, contributing to environmental sustainability while cutting energy costs for companies.
