Product Highlights

High Performance and Capacity

CS Conerto is a scale-out NAS storage system. By adding more CS units (nodes), you get a high performance/capacity cluster system with up to 100+ GBps Read/Write speed and more than 100PB of storage for the needs of future data growth. It also supports Auto-balancing function that evenly distributes data across all nodes in the system. When a large number of users access data simultaneously, the system shares the workload through parallel processing, solving the problem of a single node performance limitation and effectively improving the access efficiency.

High Performance and Capacity

Lightning-Fast All-Flash Platform

CS offers an all-flash model, CS 4025B, to deliver optimal SSD performance, including low latency, extended SSD lifespan, and faster data transfer. The all-flash CS supports up to 3,400/2,000 MB/s Read/Write speed per single node and 40Gb/s RDMA node-to-node connection to provide lightning-speed access to mission-critical workloads of such applications as HPC and M&E. Moreover, the all-flash model allows users to maximize system efficiency by allocating data in different pools based on file access frequency or file status. For example, less used data can be stored in high capacity all-HDD pool and hot data in high performance all-flash pool. In this way, you can meet both the requirements of shorter response time and massive capacity with optimized costs.

Lightning-Fast All-Flash Platform

High Scalability

CS Concerto supports two capacity expansion solutions, horizontal scalability (scale-out) and vertical scalability (scale-up). The scale-out expansion allows you to add more devices (up to 144 nodes) to increase both capacity and performance. The entire cluster performance can reach 100+ GBps (Read/Write) and more than 100PB capacity. The benefit of using scale-out is that you increase performance and capacity at the same time. CS Concerto also supports scale-up scalability, which allows you to add up to 84 disks to increase storage space.

High Scalability

Complete Data Protection

To prevent critical data loss and ensure continuous storage services, CS Concerto is designed with the support of multi-layer data protection on hard disks, node, and cluster levels. If any of the elements fails, neither the data will be lost, nor the system performance will be affected.

If a hard disk gets damaged, Infortrend's exclusive RAID technology ensures that the system runs normally at the same level of performance. In terms of node protection, Replica and Erasure Code protection functions help to avoid downtime from a single node of failure. If a node failure is detected, CS initiates self-healing function to recover the data from a faulty node.

On cluster level, you can use the Rsync feature for remote backup of the cluster file to remote cluster or remote NAS.

Complete Data Protection

High Availability

With the data protection design like RAID, Replica/Erasure code,  CS Concerto feature high availability for disk, node levels.

The network interface trunk group provide not only the bandwidth aggregation but also preventing single path failure.

Besides, CS Concerto also has the redundant hardware component design including PSU, FAN module, helps out the hardware availability, when one component is down, the other component can still provide the power and heat dissipation, these components are also modular for easy component maintenance.

Last but not the least, the firmware for CS Concerto can also be upgraded without cluster downtime to make sure the cluster service continuity.

High Availability

High Security

To secure extremely critical data, CS Concerto provides SED (Self-Encrypting Drive) and WORM (Write Once Read Many) data protection mechanism. SED protects confidential data from being hacked, malware and malicious behavior. It automatically executes full disk encryption when a write job is performed by using the embedded encryption key. Encrypted data is decrypted before leaving the drive when a read request is met. WORM is especially useful for organizations that are required to meet archival demands and struggling to keep pace with their growing data storage. It provides cost-effective data storage, which cannot be deleted, edited, over-written, or corrupted.

High Security

Easy Management

CS Concerto simplifies the deployment and management tasks with both hardware and software designs.

EonOne management software provides an intuitive user interface for centralized management of multiple systems, monitoring of performance and capacity usage, and completion of all related system configurations.

On the hardware side, CS Concerto adopts cable-less and modular design, allowing you to expand nodes or add expansion enclosures without interrupting system operation. CS Concerto also comes with redundant key components such as power supplies, controllers, and fans. These features give enterprises a very robust system that is easier to maintain and reduce the risk of downtime, providing a non-stop delivery of services.

CS cluster supports All-HDD and All-Flash hybrid configuration. This hybrid configuration is especially suitable for HPC and M&E applications, which workload requirements include high-performance computing and massive data storage capacity. Moreover, you can set different protection levels for each pool. For example, you can choose Erasure Code to protect massive data while saving the storage space.

Easy Management
