Infortrend Offers Data Deduplication Technology on Its EonNAS Unified Storage SolutionsOptimizes Storage Capacity Utilization and Reduces Costs for SMBs, Mid-Range Enterprises (October 25, 2011)
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/11 -- From improved storage utilization to dramatic reductions in cost and physical footprint -- the advantages offered by data deduplication are clear. Maintaining its position as a leading provider of cutting-edge, cost-effective storage solutions, Infortrend® (TPE: 2495), the networked storage expert, offers data deduplication technology on its EonNAS unified storage systems. Data deduplication technology helps businesses optimize storage capacity utilization by eliminating redundant copies of the same data, thereby significantly reducing data storage costs.
Cost reductions achieved by data deduplication involve many aspects of datacenter operations. If a business can store data on storage systems more efficiently, storage ROI can be increased. In addition, if a business can make better use of resources and needs fewer hardware devices to store data, required floor space will be reduced and corresponding power consumption and cooling for data storage will also decrease significantly.
The inline, block-based deduplication technology performs duplication calculations as each new data block enters the EonNAS system. When the system sees that an identical block is already present in the volume, the new block will be discarded and only a pointer will be created for reference to the existing block.
The storage savings with data deduplication differ by application and type of data. In general, deduplication can help EonNAS users achieve space savings of up to 90 percent in backup applications, 70 percent in virtualization environments and 40 percent for common office files.
Thomas Kao, director of product planning at Infortrend, noted, "Deduplication offers clear advantages: storing more data on storage systems and using systems much longer than is possible without deduplication. These advantages, combined with the fact that the technology is available at no additional costs, further enhance the cost efficiency of our EonNAS systems and solidify their position as one of the premier NAS storage solutions available today."
EonNAS offers a unified storage platform that simultaneously serves file and block-based applications and features easy management, high availability, flexible scalability and competitive price/performance. EonNAS helps mid-range enterprises and SMBs effectively meet diverse and changing data demand while staying within budget.
Data deduplication technology is currently available on the EonNAS 3000 Series and will be integrated into new EonNAS systems launched in the future. For more information, please visit www.infortrend.com or contact Infortrend sales representatives.
