Infortrend have just announced the North American availability of two new product lines in their EonNAS family, the EonNAS Pro and EonNAS 1000 Series. Infortrend note that while NAS' are getting more popular for the SOHO and SMB markets, data protection offerings on other brands "come up short".
This is where Infortrend's new EonNAS Pro and EonNAS 1000 Series come into play, running a ZFS file system, Infortrend fill this voice by offering an "unprecedented collection of advanced data protection features", including data deduplication, corrupt data self-healing, snapshot and pool mirror - bringing enterprise-level data protection and storage features to the SOHO and SMB markets.
Infortrends' NAS' definitely deliver on the performance side of things, too, offering performance of more than 100MB/sec, and in FTP environments, it can ramp up to a respectable 180MB/sec. Director of the EonNAS product line for Infortrend, William Chen, says:
The unprecedented collection of advanced data protection features available on the new systems is what truly sets them apart. The EonNAS Pro and EonNAS 1000 Series are designed to bridge the gap that exists between high end enterprise NAS offerings and what had been available up until now for SOHO and SMB users. Infortrend is bringing something different to these users -- data protection features that previously were only seen in enterprise solutions -- at a price point designed for smaller budgets.
The EonNAS Pro Series comes in 2-, 4-, 5-, and 8-bay tower systems, whilst the EonNAS 1000 Series comes in 4-, 8-, and 12-bay systems with an industry-standard 1U and 2U rack mount form factors. You can read more about them on EonNAS' website, here.
