evStor I16SG: evStor I16SG


evStor’s Storage systems are designed for high availability, non-stop service, applications demanding high throughput, and flexible storage scalability with cost effectiveness to satisfy the various service levels of datacenters and small or medium business applications. With an easy operating disk array, H16SG reduce the management burden in a virtualized demand in Ethernet environment. Securable hardware modular design in dual redundant controller, power supplies, cooling fans and battery backup modules, firmware upgrade is without system down time to achieve high availability system need.

H16SG present a powerful and ideal 1GbE iSCSI storage system in the same segment battle. By far the most significant IOPS and throughput enhances the operating system in virtualization technologies from VMware, Hyper-V and Xen-based Citrix. Not only benefit to Cloud storage, but also surveillance, SQL, Exchange, file backup, email, boot from SAN …etc online services.

Green IT, all evStor systems stress on power saving, auto disk spin-down technology, dynamic cooling mechanism designs to reduce environment burden through IT applications in helping to curb global warming.
