Infortrend EonStor DS 3060 High Density and Large Capacity Systems Support 2.5” Drives and Automated Storage Tiering
TAIPEI, Taiwan, April 8th, 2014 – Infortrend® (Public TPE: 2495) today announced that its EonStor DS 3060 4U 60-bay high density models now accommodate 2.5” SSD/HDD and support automated storage tiering. EonStor DS 3060 storage solutions combine high density and extensive expandability, helping users benefit from reduced physical storage footprint and lower power consumption while free from storage scalability worries.
The demand for fast SSD storage and compact and power-efficient 2.5” hard drives continues to grow, with emphasis on SSD support across storage solutions. When combining SSD and storage tiering, users tap SSD speeds and HDD capacity, and with Infortrend solutions automated tiering improves performance by up to 15 times for read speeds and 35 times for write activity compared to non-tiering systems. For mission-critical performance, 2.5” is also becoming the only choice in mechanical drives, as just one brand still offers 3.5” disks capable of 15K rpm, and these will be discontinued at the end of the year.
EonStor DS 3060 high density systems pack large capacity into relatively compact 4U rackmount units. Supporting low power consumption SSD, they require less floor space and are more energy efficient for lower power bills. They are also scalable to 2,160TB by using five expansion enclosures and 6TB drives.
“As SSD technology becomes more popular, our high density EonStor DS 3000 flagship systems are ready. They have room for SSD/HDD combinations and make the best of both with automated storage tiering while saving users money through dense designs that offer more performance and capacity for less space and energy draw”, said Thomas Kao, Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.
All EonStor DS 3000 series systems currently support 2.5” SSD/HDD and automatic storage tiering.
