Rich Selections of Host Interfaces

GSa offers versatile host interfaces: FC 16Gb/s, FC 8Gb/s, iSCSI 40Gb/s, iSCSI 10Gb/s, iSCSI 1Gb/s, InfiniBand 56Gb/s and SAS 12Gb/s. Enterprises can choose according to their needs. Furthermore, 40GbE/10GbE/1GbE ports are also offered for fast and reliable data sharing and transfer in network environments.



Rich Selections of Host Interfaces


Cache Backup Module (CBM) to Prevent Data Loss

When unexpected power failures occur, Infortrend CBM will kick-in and use the backup power to store cache data to flash module and prevent potential data loss. Once external power is back on, the data in the flash module will then be restored to drives. CBM can effectively reduce data loss.
