Enterprise storage provider, Infortrend Technology has developed a hybrid cloud solution of unified enterprise-class storage EonStor GS with the object storage Hitachi Content platform (HCP).
The GS high availability storage integrates SAN and NAS services as well as Cloud Gatweway to connect to various cloud storage, including Hitatchi Content Platform. With the integrated EonCloud Gateway, enterprises are able to synchronise their file and block-level data between the GS and HCP with desired frequency. This allows cross-regional team members or remote colleagues to gain access via common protocols and collaborate on the same files and applications.
File access permissions and access control management between multiple GS systems can be easily managed to protect files integrity while multiple users from different offices are accessing the same files on the cloud. According to the storage provider, enterprises can backup and synchronise all the data between GS and HCP, or they can implement GS as a cache for frequently accessed “hot” data with all the data migrated to the cloud.
The GS hybrid cloud offers high throughput and low latency, SSL encryption and SED technology for data security, as well as unlimited cloud capacity with a “pay-as-you-grow” policy. Big Data analysis via cloud computing, cloud-integrated surveillance, server backup, easy file sharing between cross-regional offices, are the most common applications for the GS hybrid cloud.
“The GS hybrid cloud solution now offers seamless integration with Hitachi Content Platform,” said Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend, Frank Lee. “Such infrastructure combines advantages of high performance and data security of local storage and unlimited capacity of the cloud, simultaneously providing great cost-effectiveness compared to other vendors’ solutions.”
