Infortrend Launches the SMB-Focused EonStor DS 1000 Series

High performance and reliability, customizable hardware, and extensive data services provide affordable and complete storage solutions

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 3rd 2014 – Infortrend® (Public TPE: 2495) today announced EonStor DS 1000 RAID systems, which redefine entry-level storage with solid reliability, high performance, flexible hardware options, and wide data service support.

Extra-reliable EonStor DS 1000 systems ensure data protection, featuring extreme endurance Super Capacitors for non-stop stable operation over long product lifespans. The high quality capacitors join a flash module and BBU (backup battery unit) to deliver high data availability and business continuity. For convenient backup, users also get access to snapshot and volume copy/mirror plus optional secure remote replication.

EonStor DS 1000 systems offer up to 380,000 IOPS, 5,500MB/s read throughput, and 1,900MB/s write throughput. They outperform previous storage generations such as the EonStor DS G6 series by a large margin. With their automated storage tiering feature, they can leverage SSD and boost storage utilization for even better performance. 

The new products offer diverse choices so SMBs can precision-tailor solutions to their budgets and needs rather than having to choose from preset configurations. Systems include onboard iSCSI and support hybrid interfaces for flexible connectivity. In addition to 1Gb/s or 10Gb/s iSCSI, users can select 8Gb/s or 16Gb/s Fibre Channel or 6Gb/s SAS.

“EonStor DS 1000 systems bring sweet spot storage to SMBs. Reliable, powerful, and flexible, they offer an affordable upgrade in support of growth”, stated Thomas Kao, Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.

EonStor DS 1012/1016 models are currently available, offering 12-bay/16-bay solutions. Multiple other form factors are releasing in coming months, including high density 48-bay/60-bay versions. For complete EonStor DS 1000 product details, please click here.
