Infortrend recently announced that Infortrend’s full line of storage solutions, including the ESVA, EonStor DS and EonNAS families now offer support for enterprise-class HGST 4TB hard disk drives. Support for HGST 4TB Ultrastar 7K4000 drives on all of Infortrend’s storage solutions enables SMBs and enterprises to scale and manage data growth more efficiently.
Market research continues to show that SMBs and enterprises are still experiencing a huge explosion of data growth. Breakthrough advancements in technology and the increasing demand for large size data, such as full HD content have created massive storage requirements for businesses of all sizes. With this massive growth comes the inevitable challenge of effectively storing large amounts of data while still maintaining efficiency. To face this challenge and manage data information more efficiently, SMBs and enterprises need more scalable, cost-effective data storage capacity - and 4TB hard disk drive supported storage systems offer an ideal solution.
Thomas Kao, director of product planning at Infortrend elaborated, “Raw capacity remains one of the key considerations for SMBs and enterprises when buying storage systems. By working in close cooperation with industry-leading HDD vendors such as HGST, Infortrend is now among the first storage system vendors to offer support for 4TB drives - and thereby enable our customers to store more data in the same storage space.”
Brendan Collins, vice president, Product Marketing at HGST, said, “HGST has been a leader in the development of enterprise-class disk drives. By leveraging our high-capacity 4TB Ultrastar drives, Infortrend is taking advantage of its strong position in the entry-level and mid-range storage markets, and is helping to ensure that more businesses will be able to enjoy capacity data storage without increasing their physical storage footprint.”
Infortrend’s ESVA family offers industry-leading storage systems built on a revolutionary architecture, featuring virtualisation and scale-out technologies. The EonStor DS family features entry-level storage solutions for SAN and DAS environments offering comprehensive data protection at affordable price points. The EonNAS family consists of unified storage systems that serve file-based and block-based applications.
