Infortrend Scale-Out Nas Helps Media And Entertainment Companies Stay Competitive With All-Around Data Protection

CIOReview | Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Taipei, Taiwan,  -  Infortrend® Technology, Inc. (TWSE: 2495), the industry-leading enterprise storage provider, optimized their EonStor CS scale-out NAS solution’s all-around data protection including Erasure code to assist Media and Entertainment (M&E) creators in faster data recovery and on-time project completion to remain competitive in the industry.

The EonStor CS is an extremely flexible NAS storage solution that offers scale-out to increase performance (up to 100GB/s), and scale-up to add storage capacity (up to 100PB). In addition, it can utilize U.2 NVMe SSDs to further boost performance by offering low latency data read/ write.

The M&E projects often have tight schedules, so performance, data reliability, and protection are vital factors in expediting completion. Without data protection, in a worst-case scenario where all data is lost, a few minutes of classic or award-winning scenes may require hours, if not days to compose. Therefore, most M&E studios require complete data protection which has less impact on storage performance and productivity.

The EonStor CS has an all-around data protection design that meets M&E requirements. On a local drive level, it incorporates RAID for data redundancy protection that can rebuild a single disk drive within hours, which significantly reduces the time of data recovery, compared to a complete node rebuild. On a node protection level, Erasure Code can produce redundant data for all nodes and it can initiate auto-recovery of a faulty node. Other data protection methodologies include remote replication for folder level safety and it has achieved Veeam Ready Repository status for full backups/ VM restore capabilities.

“The EonStor CS scalable NAS solution brings high I/O performance and a complete data protection scheme to expedite M&E projects and ensure data are properly stored, protected, and produced on time,” said Frank Lee, Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.
