Infortrend, a storage networking provider, is now offering 6Gb/s SAS-host storage systems in its entry-level EonStor DS family. Featuring four 6GB/s SAS-host ports per controller, the new systems are designed to help SMBs accommodate more application servers.
With up to eight 6Gb/s SAS-host ports on a single EonStor DS system, SMB users are able to support up to eight servers in a non-high availability configuration or four servers in a high availability configuration. In the past, supporting this number of servers required at least two storage systems, meaning that with the newly announced EonStor DS systems users can significantly reduce the amount of storage hardware, while still meeting all their application needs.
The new EonStor DS systems include the following:
- EonStor DS S12S-R2240-4 and S12S-G2240-4: 2U form factor, single or dual controller, four 6Gb/s SAS-host ports per controller, 12 drive bays per system, expansion up to 84 disk drives.
- EonStor DS S16S-R2240-4 and S16S-G2240-4: 3U form factor, single or dual controller, four 6Gb/s SAS-host ports per controller, 16 drive bays per system, expansion up to 112 disk drives.
- EonStor DS S24S-G2240-4: 4U form factor, single controller, four 6Gb/s SAS-host ports per controller, 24 drive bays per system, expansion up to 104 disk drives.
