New Taipei City, Taiwan – Infortrend ® Technology, Inc. (TWSE: 2495) today announces EonStor GSc. Hybrid Cloud Storage Appliance is an indispensable device for Enterprises to avoid cloud vendor lock-in.

Migrating data to the cloud can bring a multitude of benefits, such as increased agility and flexibility. But if something goes wrong with the cloud service after the migration or costs grow higher than expected, moving data to another cloud vendor or back to local storage may incur hefty costs, additional technical problems, and more.

GSc is the one-stop solution to the above issues. Enterprises can move their data between multiple cloud services and to local storage transparently, and they can adjust the storage resources dynamically for an optimal balance between cost and benefit. In addition, GSc allows optimization of storage performance with advanced cache policy features. With all these features, enterprises can speed up the cloud data access by caching the frequently-used blocks or files in the local storage while saving rarely-accessed data to the cloud.

GSc provides connectivity to major cloud services such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Openstack Swift, and Alibaba Cloud, and offers a spectrum of availability in performance, connectivity, and form factors that fit for all types of enterprise's demands.

"With GSc, enterprises no longer need to worry about vendor lock-in. They can either store data in the cloud or local storage freely at any time. Each company can adopt its own storage strategy that best suits their needs", Said Thomas Kao, Senior Director of Product Planning.
