RAID storage expert Infortrend® unveiled the new 16-bay, 4Gigabit Fibre Channel (4G-FC) to SAS RAID arrays: the EonStor® (ES) S16F-R1430 redundant controller subsystems. Combining the company's powerful new ASIC400 engine with high performance 4G-FC transfer speeds and the improved features of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), these new arrays deliver the reliability and processing capabilities required for even the most demanding data storage environments. The ES S16F supports SAS or SATA disk drives so that vendors can design cost- and performance-effective storage solutions, using high performance SAS drives for mission-critical solutions and cost-effective SATA drives for near-line backup environments.

For massive data storage, Infortrend also announced the EonStor S16S-J1000, a SAS-to-SAS JBOD available in single and redundant controller versions.  The SAS JBODs also support both SAS and SATA-II drives and come with two SAS ports per controller.  By cascading ES S16S-J1000 JBODs, the S16F can support up to 64 drives, allowing customers to build a storage network with sufficient capacity for each application and still reserve space for future expansion.
