SAN, NAS and Cloud in ONE Unified Storage

With the growth of data, more and more enterprises face the need to transform their storage infrastructure. Besides providing TB or PB level local storage capacity for critical applications, Typhoon can also assist users to expand their data storage to cloud by adjusting system setups according to actual requirements, all in one storage system.

Hybrid Storage Arrays

From data growth, management of numerous hardware devices, to annual budget cuts, IT personnel need to face ever-changing challenges every day. Typhoon can be set up as a hybrid flash storage according to their needs, and combined with either SSD Cache or Automated Storage Tiering, it can utilize the high performance of SSDs and the large capacity of HDDs, while automatically moving frequently accessed data to SSDs to achieve simplified management and proper use of resources.

Complete Cloud Integration Solution

Integration of enterprise data and cloud is the trend of the future, and Typhoon can assist customers to move file or block level data to public or private clouds according to their needs. Besides low cost access to infrequently used data, it can also backup data to the cloud to establish a remote backup architecture, creating a data center with high availability.

EonOne—an Easy-to-use Interface for Storage Management

With the constant evolution of storage platforms, Typhoon adopted the all new EonOne management software to assist customers improve storage and service efficiency to increase productivity. Its intuitive interface design allows for centralized management of multiple systems, monitoring of performance and capacity usage, and completion of all related system configurations.

A Software Platform Allows User to Run and Manage Applications

The App Store features templates for various Docker container images—artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of things (IoT), video surveillance, and much more. A template specifies a Docker container image along with preset parameters of the execution environment. By using a template, you can quickly deploy and run a Docker container with little fuss.

Rich Host Interface in Typhoon Series

As there is a wide range of enterprise applications, the required communication interface for each application may differ. Infortrend provides rich communication interfaces in SAN environments, including 8Gb/s FC, 16Gb/s FC, 32Gb/s FC, 1Gb/s iSCSI, 10Gb/s iSCSI, 40Gb/s iSCSI and 12Gb/s SAS to allow complete compatibility with all applications. Furthermore, 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE and 40GbE ports are also offered in network environments to provide fast and reliable data sharing and data transfer quality.

Modular Design

From power supplies, fans, controllers, to host boards, all Infortrend products adopt modular designs to lower maintenance complexity and provide fast, precise technical support and RMA services, so that your storage system is free from any down time to maintain non-stop services and increase productivity and competitiveness.

Cache Backup Technology

Infortrend CBM will use power provided by super capacitor and move write cache data to flash module within seconds to prevent data loss when unexpected power failures occur, and write data in the flash module back to drives after power is restored. Super capacitor can also reduce maintenance costs as it is non-volatile and does not need to be replaced periodically.
