As businesses evolve, so do their data centers' infrastructural needs. Changing data center deployments is usually a rather complex undertaking; however, with EonStor DS systems' new converged host board, users can upgrade their storage systems to meet their growing data needs just by switching to the other host modes.
With a dual converged host board, the EonStor DS 4000 Series offers 20 iSCSI protocol, including sixteen 10GbE iSCSI and four 1GbE iSCSI; or it can upport sixteen 8Gb FC or eight 16Gb FC. Having this level of connectivity with four types of port support, provides hyper flexibility for data centers' configuration and deployment. FCoE connectivity support will be made available from December.
"We understand that our customers' data center needs are constantly evolving, so by providing flexible, future-proof products such as the new converged host board for EonStor DS Family, we ensure our customers achieve the highest possible ROI by choosing a solution that can grow and change according to their requirements without having to completely revamp their storage solution." said Thomas Kao, senior director, product planning, Infortrend.
Available exclusively for EonStor DS 4000 Series, the company plans to extend converged board availability to the entire EonStor DS Family.
