Infortrend ESDS S24F-R2840 combine 8Gb/s Fibre Channel (FC) host connectivity and 6Gb/s SAS drive support. With the latest technologies, they enable SMBs to cost-effectively deploy high-availability FC SANs delivering outstanding price-performance. The enterprise-class data protection and performance are ideal for mission-critical environments

High-Availability SAN Delivering Great Price Performance

Data availability is critical to any business operation. This 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 would automatically leverage the power of Battery Backup Unit (BBU) to safeguard cached data by writing it to flash module for permanent retention. To protect valuable data sets against more critical threats, It also supports storage-based snapshot and volume copy/mirror. Data availability can be achieved with minimal downtime in case of human errors or data volume failure by employing the system snapshot and volume copy/mirror features. Leveraging Infortrend's world class RAID engine and Fibre Channel protocol, this 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 while satisfying the current storage needs. Flexible drive type and capacity support (SAS, SATA and various drive sizes) allows for the accommodation of current application needs while future proofs to support tomorrow's applications. Populating ESDS S24F-R2840 with 6Gb/s SAS drives, users can enjoy higher throughput, easier troubleshooting and quicker system initialization and recovery. Through expansion enclosures, a 24-bay storage solution can be expanded to a maximum of 104 drives to meet the proliferation of storage growth. The "scale as you grow” flexibility of the storage solution minimizes the upfront investment and provides the best overall Total Cost of Acquisition (TCA).

Intuitive and Easy Management

Storage management should be simple. This storage solution includes a comprehensive management software suite, SANWatch, to centrally manage multiple subsystems over a standard TCP/IP network. The status and event information summary can be viewed on the portal window. Necessary functions to configure, manage and monitor are only a few clicks away. Besides providing all firmware features through a user-friendly GUI, SANWatch also supports script-based configuration of multiple subsystems 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 system every step of the way

High Energy Efficiency

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