Infortrend Touts New ESVA Products at VMworld

Infortrend Touts New ESVA Products at VMworld

The storage company has announced general availability of its E10 and the F70 enterprise scalable virtualized architecture models.

Storage innovator Infortrend is using the forum of VMworld this week to roll out the general availability of two new enterprise scalable virtualized architecture (ESVA) models. The newest additions to Infortrend’s ESVA product family, the E10 and the F70, are aimed at providing SMBs with “more options for affordable storage virtualization,” according to the company.

“Server virtualization increases resource utilization and reduces management overhead,” James Hsieh, vice president of global marketing at Infortrend. “The ESVA product family is based on virtualized architecture. Using scale-out and thin provisioning technology, virtualized storage solutions can be integrated into various OS environments to allow optimal resource efficiency, ease of management, operational resilience, and increased availability.”

The ESVA E10 mid-range storage array from Infortrend is the most affordable model in the ESVA line. It delivers such data service features as storage virtualization, distributed load-balancing, thin provisioning, and data protection functions.

The ESVA E10 comes with 16 internal drives and four 1 GbE iSCSI ports. Like all other ESVA models, the E10 is based on a scalable virtualized architecture.

Up to four E10 systems can be clustered in a storage pool. Scaling is not disruptive; workloads are equally distributed among all of the storage systems in the pool.

Infortrend’s new ESVA F70 provides FC/iSCSI hybrid host connectivity and supports remote replication. It enables SMBs to deploy business-critical applications on FC SAN while configuring replication via iSCSI-based data transmission over Ethernet.

Traditionally, FCIP routers are required when users would like to replicate valuable data sets on a FC-host storage system onto another FC-host storage system at a remote site over Ethernet. With ESVA F70, FCIP routers are no longer necessary to deploy remote replication, as built-in iSCSI ports can be directly connected to the IP network.

The ESVA F70 comes with eight 8 Gb/s FC and four 1 Gb/s iSCSI ports, and supports solid state drives (SSD), SAS drives, and SATA drives.

For users not requiring remote replication, the hybrid connectivity can also be used to support consolidated SAN tiering. A single storage pool of the ESVA F70 can meet service level requirements of both tier 1 applications on FC SAN and tier 2 applications on IP SAN.

Infortrend is a VMware Technology Alliance Partner. Infortrend’s iSCSI and Fibre Channel host storage products are VMware-certified.
