Storage solution provider Infortrend has announced the availability of two new product lines in the company's EonNAS family of network attached storage (NAS) appliances. Targeted at SMB and SOHO organizations, the EonNAS Pro and the EonNAS 1000 Seriesoffers a collection of advanced features that are more typical of an enterprise-grade SAN than a NAS.
The EonNAS Pro family comes in a tower format and is available in models ranging from 2 to 8 hard disk drive (HDD) bays. The EonNAS 1000 Series is rack-mountable and offers between 4 to 12 HDD bays. The company says the devices are easy to deploy and support file sharing on multiple platforms such as Windows, Mac and UNIX/Linux workstations.
Both the EonNAS Pro and EonNAS 1000 Series run on the ZFS file system and offer a number of advanced features that include data deduplication, corrupt data self-healing, snapshot and pool mirror capabilities. Designed by Sun and first introduced in 2005, the ZFS file system offers advanced data integrity protection by automatically detecting and recovering from silent data corruption. The ZFS file system is also capable of scaling beyond the largest storage systems available today.
