New NAS Server Family from Infortrend Delivers Enterprise Class Storage Protection to SMB and SOHO Markets

Expandable and Simple to Deploy, EonNAS Pro and 1000 Series Feature Deduplication, ZFS Checksum, Snapshot and Pool Mirror for Optimized Storage, End-to-End Data Integrity

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 17, 2011 – HYPERLINK ""Infortrend® (Public TPE: 2495) today announced the North American availability of two new product lines in its EonNAS family of unified storage solutions, the HYPERLINK "" EonNAS Pro and HYPERLINK ""EonNAS 1000 Series. Although NAS is fast becoming the storage solution of choice for the SOHO and SMB markets, when it comes to data protection, current offerings come up short. Infortrend's new EonNAS Pro and EonNAS 1000 Series fill this void by offering an unprecedented collection of advanced data protection features – including deduplication, ZFS checksum, snapshot and pool mirror – bringing enterprise-level features to the SOHO and SMB markets.

Simple to deploy and use, Infortrend's new solutions feature comprehensive protocol support to enable users to serve file-based and block-based applications with a single device and achieve easy file sharing among Windows, Mac and Linux/Unix workstations in the office.

Data deduplication can benefit a great number of applications, in particular backup and virtualization applications. With storage space savings of up to 90 percent, the technology enables users to achieve significant cost reductions. Resource utilization on EonNAS Pro and EonNAS 1000 systems is further enhanced by thin provisioning technology and data compression.

The ZFS file system achieves end-to-end data integrity through a hierarchical checksum mechanism, which weeds out silent data corruption phenomena that go undetected in other file systems. In addition to ZFS, data is protected by many other features. Snapshots offer space-efficient differential data copies to quickly rollback data or restore files in the event of data errors. With remote replication, users can replicate data in asynchronous mode to another EonNAS Pro or EonNAS 1000 system or third-party device, while the pool mirror function allows users to keep data in two different EonNAS Pro or EonNAS 1000 systems fully synced at all times.

Various data backup options are also available. PC data can be backed up to the EonNAS Pro and EonNAS 1000 systems through third-party backup software support, while EonNAS data can be backed up to external disk drives via USB or eSATA connections.

The superior performance levels offered by the EonNAS Pro and EonNAS 1000 systems ensure that users can efficiently deal with demanding applications. For each network protocol, the EonNAS solutions deliver performance of more than 100MB/s, and in FTP environments, users can achieve up to 180MB/s.

The EonNAS Pro Series offers 2-, 4-, 5-, and 8-bay tower systems that can be set up in minutes and are extremely easy to manage. The EonNAS 1000 Series features 4-bay systems with an industry-standard 1U rackmount form factor. The new models round out Infortrend's comprehensive family of NAS offerings, which also includes the HYPERLINK "" EonNAS 3000 Series – designed for SMBs, remote/branch offices and enterprise departments – and the HYPERLINK ""EonNAS 5000 Series, which enables enterprises to efficiently deal with file- and block-based applications.
