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.

GSc Protfolio

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.

GSc NFS/CIFS/FTP/Rsync, iSCSI Access

Features & Benefits:

Easy Cloud Integration with the Existing IT Environment and Applications

GSc provides enterprise IT applications with general file or block-level as well as the local and cloud data through the common protocols (e.g. NFS /CIFS /iSCSI /Fibre). Therefore, companies do not need to re-engineer existing IT systems or applications in order to connect to the cloud, greatly reduced the difficulty of cloud integration.

Easy Cloud Integration with the Existing IT Environment and Applications

Faster Cloud Data Access

Since the cloud data is accessed through the Internet, the access speed is slow and latency is high, resulting in bad user experience. GSc can designate the local storage to act as cloud cache by placing frequently accessed data on the local side, allowing most of data access to be as fast as local.

Faster Cloud Data Access

Flexible Cache Policy Improves the Efficiency of Data Access

With more than 9 different types of cache policies, IT managers can set up the cache according to their needs. The default cache policy keeps the download data in the local cache, and if local space is insufficient the system will then delete less frequently accessed files. The high priority policy allows the data to be continuously retained in the local cache folder, such as frequently used work files. Uncacheable for write policy allows users to store data directly to the cloud instead of storing it in local cache, such as data backup files. The settings of these cache policies allow users to optimize use of local cache space and improve the efficiency of data access.

Flexible Cache Policy Improves the Efficiency of Data Access

Secure and Protect Enterprise Data

Preventing data breach has always been the biggest concern for enterprises to put any data on the cloud. GSc supports data encryption with user keeping the encryption key, and ensures no public cloud data can be decrypted by anyone else. In addition, all transmissions to and from the cloud are SSL/TLS encrypted to ensure additional data security.

Secure and Protect Enterprise Data

Cost-Saving on Cloud Storage and Network Bandwidth

The cost of cloud storage is based on the size of the data space in the cloud and the amount of bandwidth used. GSc with built-in data compression and deduplication features can effectively reduce the amount of cloud data space used, resulting in cost-savings for both network bandwidth and cloud storage.

Cost-Saving on Cloud Storage and Network Bandwidth

Scalable Data Support

One major benefit of cloud storage is its flexible expandability. EonCloud Gateway supports PB level cloud storage capacity and billions of cloud files, completely meeting the massive data needs on the cloud of enterprises.

Scalable Data Support

Access Control List (ACL) Synchronization via Cloud to Multiple Local Storages

When enterprise share files via the cloud to multiple local storages, maintaining access control of files have always been a challenging issue since cloud doesn’t really have a file system that supports ACL and making IT management difficult. GSc provides an access control list synchronization mechanism under a multiple storage environment via cloud, thus resolving this challenging issue.

Access Control List (ACL) Synchronization via Cloud to Multiple Local Storages

Use Case:

Pharmaceutical Industry

Clinical-trial data is paramount for drug development and must be backed up and protected against any potential mishaps. Therefore, a Hybrid Cloud Storage Solution that includes both local and remote backup is needed to guarantee 100% data protection.

For the local backup, GSc offers high-IOPs performance to achieve low-latency real-time backup of the application data. For remote backup, GSc can integrate with the on premise DPM (Data Protection Manager) server using common protocols and serve as cloud cache to buffer these large backup files. These backup files can then securely transmit to the cloud service during off-peak hours.

Furthermore, GSc supports snapshot when unexpected error occurs, the enterprise can roll back the snapshot from the cloud to achieve disaster recovery solution. Therefore, in the pharmaceutical industry the GSc not only can play the backup role but a disaster recovery solution.
