Overview:

Today companies across industries and verticals are getting on the cloud. Infortrend introduced all new EonStor GSc family of hybrid cloud storage appliance designed for businesses to streamline cloud deployment by moving and managing data between local and cloud in a transparent manner. GSc offers differentiated features in cloud cache, cloud backup, and cloud tiering.

GSc family inherited company's GS line of superior unified storage performance and available in 3 series. EonStor GSc 2000 / 3000 series are cost-effective solutions to meet the cloud storage needs from SMBs to large enterprises. EonStor GSc 5000 series is the high performance cloud storage system designed for modern data centers.

Integrated with cloud storage gateway functions, GSc simplifies cloud setup by maintaining compatibility with existing IT environment and offers cloud data access to both file and block-level using common protocols, thus greatly reduced the difficulty to reconfigure.

In addition, GSc allows enterprise with data already on the cloud to speed-up cloud access by designating the local storage as cache. With advanced cache feature, IT managers can further optimize cache performance with 9 types of intelligent cache policies with extensive parameter settings. Cloud backup feature also enables local data to take periodic snapshots to the cloud for remote backup. Cloud tiering feature places the frequently accessed hot data in the local while less-frequently accessed cold data to the cloud.

Data security has always been the top concern for enterprises to get on the cloud. GSc supports AES 256-bit data encryption and ensures no public cloud data can be decrypted by anyone else. Furthermore, all transmissions to and from the cloud are SSL encrypted to ensure additional data security. Built-in data compression and deduplication features can effectively reduce the amount of cloud data space used, resulting in cost-savings. Initially, GSc offers connectivity to Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Openstack Swift, and Alibaba Cloud.

EonStor GSc 2000 Series speeds up enterprise cloud deployment and access by integrating local storage and cloud into one unified storage. By maintaining compatibility with existing IT environment, GSc simplifies cloud setup and offers cloud data access to both file and block-level using common protocols, thus greatly reduced the difficulty to reconfigure.

Features & Benefits:

  • Easy cloud integration with the existing IT environment and applications with general file or block-level as well as the local and cloud data through the common protocols. (e.g. NFS/CIFS/FTP/Rsync/iSCSI)
  • Enable faster cloud data access by designate the local storage to act as cloud cache
  • Flexible cache policy with more than 9 types of intelligent cache policies and extensive parameter settings
  • Cost-savings on cloud service and bandwidth with built-in data compression and deduplication features
  • Scalable big data support with up to 2PB of cloud storage space and hundreds million files in the cloud
  • Secure and protect enterprise data with AES 256-bit data encryption and ensures no public cloud data can be decrypted by anyone else. All transmissions to and from the cloud are SSL/TLS encrypted
  • Simple-to-use and web-based cloud management interface can be operated by any IT staff with a general browser, reducing the management complexity.
  • Powerful local storage with excellent block /file level performance and can deliver up to 700K IOPS, 23,000MB/s block and 17,000 MB/s CIFS bandwidth
