The Infortrend ESDS B12E-R2140 is small form factor (SFF) storage systems that provide budget-friendly choices to help SMB users easily deploy high-availability GbE IP SANs. Accommodating 12 SFF drives in a high-density 1U enclosure, the ESDS B12E models deliver optimal performance density. Their enterprise-class data protection and outstanding price-performance can generate significant business advantages.

High-Availability SAN Delivers Great Price Performance

Data availability is critical to any business operation. The ESDS B12E-R2140 storage solution features high-availability hardware designs with redundant, hot-swappable hardware components, such as RAID controllers, power supplies and cooling fans to eliminate single point of failure. Hardware RAID protection ensures data accessibility during drive failure. In the event of a power outage, CacheSafe technology will automatically leverage the Battery Backup Unit (BBU) to safeguard cached data by writing it to the flash module for permanent retention. To protect valuable data sets against more critical threats, ESDS B12E-R2140 also supports storage-based snapshots and volume copy/mirror. In case of human errors or data volume failure, data availability can be achieved with minimal downtime by employing the system's snapshot and volume copy/mirror features. Leveraging Infortrend's world-class RAID engine, the ESDS B12E-R2140 storage solution delivers breakthrough performance for demanding business applications.

Flexible Scalability

This storage solution supports dynamic scaling to aid in the planning for future storage growth. Flexible drive type and capacity support (SAS, SATA and various drive sizes) satisfies current applications and enables you to accommodate future needs. Through expansion enclosures, a 12-bay  storage solution can be expanded to a maximum of 108 drives to meet the proliferation of storage growth. The "scale as you grow" flexibility of this solution minimizes the upfront investment and provides the best overall Total Cost of Acquisition (TCA).

Intuitive and Easy Management

Storage management should be simple. ESDS B12E-R2140 storage solution includes a comprehensive management software suite (SANWatch) to centrally manage multiple systems over a standard TCP/IP network. ESDS B12E-R2140 status and event information summaries can be viewed on the portal window. Necessary functions to configure, manage and monitor the systems are only a few clicks away. Besides providing all firmware features through a user-friendly GUI, SANWatch also supports script-based configuration of multiple ESDS B12E-R2140 systems simultaneously. Automatic critical event notifications can be customized to suit the most critical storage environment. SANWatch will guide users through initializing, configuring and maintaining the solution every step of the way.

High Energy Efficiency

Contributing to environmental sustainability, the ESDS B12E-R2140 storage solution enables energy cost savings while maintaining performance. It is equipped with power-saving designs such as dynamic cooling and intelligent multi-level drive spin-down.
