New EonStor DS Product Family From Infortrend Brings Enterprise-Class Data Protection to SMB Market

Cost Effective SAN Solutions With Snapshot and Volume Copy/Mirror Capabilities to Enhance Data Availability

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) - Infortrend® (TPE: 2495), the networked storage expert, today announced the release of the first FC-to-SAS/SATA and iSCSI-to-SAS/SATA storage arrays from its new EonStor DS family. The easy-to-use EonStor DS storage systems provide comprehensive data protection functionality and outstanding price/performance to help SMBs achieve uncompromised availability and required service levels for their mission-critical applications -- at affordable prices.

Designed to help SMBs simplify storage management, prevent data loss and optimize productivity with cutting-edge data services, Infortrend's EonStor DS family provides a comprehensive data protection suite of features to ensure the highest data availability for the storage area network (SAN).

"Proactively preventing downtime within a limited budget is a challenge faced by IT managers and CIOs everywhere," noted James Hsieh, vice president of global marketing at Infortrend. "The EonStor DS storage solution delivers a competitive edge, giving budget-conscious businesses the ability to keep up with their ever-growing storage needs. Flexible, energy efficient and easy to manage EonStor DS helps to keep businesses up and running."

Built on a high availability (HA) hardware platform to enhance business competitiveness, EonStor DS supports storage-based snapshot and volume copy/mirror. All redundant modules including controllers, power supplies and cooling fans are hot-swappable to achieve high fault-tolerance capability. Full RAID protection ensures continuous data accessibility and data integrity, even when up to two drives fail. Infortrend also integrates its innovative CacheSafe technology into EonStor DS arrays to safeguard cached data during power outages. For better IT efficiency, Infortrend allows users to centrally manage multiple EonStor DS systems with SANWatch®, its feature-rich management suite.

The first EonStor DS models come with host connectivity choices of 8Gb/s Fibre Channel (FC), 4Gb/s FC and 1GbE iSCSI. Powered by Infortrend's latest RAID engine, the EonStor DS models deliver outstanding throughput to significantly improve SAN application productivity and offer superior price/performance. Additional EonStor DS family models will be available in the near future.
