Infortrend Expands Storage Systems Market for Telco, Defense, Oil and Gas Industries With New DC Power Systems

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2011) - Infortrend® (TPE: 2495), the networked storage expert, today announced the availability of new DC power systems in its EonStor DS family of storage solutions. Many IT infrastructures in telecommunications and military environments, as well as the oil and gas industries, require systems with DC rather than AC power to run applications. With dual redundant DC power supplies, the new EonStor DS storage systems are designed to deliver high reliability and performance in these infrastructures.

Thomas Kao, director of product planning at Infortrend, noted, "Organizations relying on DC power to operate their datacenters have a limited number of options when purchasing data storage arrays. By adding new systems with DC power supplies to the EonStor DS product family, we are expanding the options available to these organizations with reliable storage solutions that offer excellent cost efficiency."

As with all EonStor DS solutions, the new DC power systems support advanced data services including local and remote replication as well as thin provisioning. Local replication, including snapshot and volume copy/mirror, is standardly available for EonStor DS users. Remote replication allows users to create off-site copies of data. Thin provisioning technology automatically allocates system capacity to applications as needed, optimizing storage utilization while significantly reducing power consumption.

The new EonStor DS systems include the following:

  • EonStor DS S12F-R2840N: 2U form factor, dual redundant controllers, eight 8Gb/s FC host ports, 12 drive bays per system, expansion up to 84 disk drives, DC power.
  • EonStor DS S12F-S2840N: 2U form factor, single controller (upgradable to dual redundant), four 8Gb/s FC host ports, 12 drive bays per system, expansion up to 84 disk drives, DC power.
