All EonStor G6 8G FC-to-SAS/SATA subsystems are powered by Infortrend's proprietary ASIC667 RAID engine and are capable of providing massively scalable capacity by adding expansion enclosures. Equipped with two 8G FC host ports per controller, the systems deliver outstanding performance to process large amounts of data required by throughput-demanding applications. Regardless of the footprint requirement, users can take advantage of the storage systems high scalability and outstanding efficiency to fulfill operational demands in the most cost-efficient way.

To safeguard cached data during power outages, Infortrend has introduced our new CacheSafe® technology for the EonStor G6 offerings. When there is a power failure, the ‘Cache Backup Module (CBM)' will write all cached data to the flash backup module (FBM). The Battery Backup Unit (BBU) will automatically supply power for this purpose. Once power is restored, the data in the flash module is written back to the storage system which ensures no data loss.

"Being a leading storage solution provider, Infortrend has set high standards for its product development to ensure that it keeps its leadership position." said Thomas Kao, product planning director at Infortrend Technology. "FC SAN is an ideal solution for applications that need high speed, reliable, highly available and cost-effective information storage. The transition to 8G FC is a natural progression that is now beginning. In anticipation of this, Infortrend is proud to be first in the market to offer 8G FC SAN solutions with complete form factor choices. Users can flexibly integrate them into their current configurations, leveraging state-of-the-art technology to satisfy their operational needs."
