Qsan Announces Launch of Full Line Products in TrioNAS Series

Taipei, Taiwan, 06 June 2013– Qsan Technology Inc, the professional network storage provider of SAN & Unified Storage, today announced the launch of full line products in its TrioNAS family. TrioNAS series features the integration of NAS and iSCSI SAN with many enterprise-level features such as compression, thin provisioning, dedup and SSD caching. The available products of TrioNAS include the 2U 12-Bay U221 powered by Intel® Xeon® processors E3-1200 v3 product family, U220 and U210 powered by Intel® Core™ i3 processors as well as the 1U 4-Bay U110 inbuilt with Intel® Atom™ processors.

 For years Qsan has won plenty of proven records in enterprise markets and numerous vertical industries. TrioNAS is the new series designed to offer enterprise-class features for SMB at a competitive price, allowing smaller organizations to manage IT infrastructure at minimum efforts and cost. The functions of compression, thin provisioning and dedup once belong to enterprise segment only at very high cost and now they’re available in TrioNAS series. Working with the industry leader Intel, by end of January this year Qsan has launched TrioNAS U200 and U110, and the addition of new models including TrioNAS U221, U220 and U210 makes the product line complete to deliver fully efficient, reliable and cost-effective solutions to customers.

 “TrioNAS U221 is the flagship model in this series and with the Intel Xeon CPU and 32 GB memory, it can deliver ultimate performance for online dedup and compression to save disk capacity of up to 90%,” said Daniel Lin, the sales director at Qsan. “With data efficiency features, TrioNAS enables smaller companies to back up data without worrying about redundant data swallowing up storage capacity.”

 “The amount of data being created by small businesses and enterprises is increasing at such a rapid rate that users require a simple and centralized way to access and backup their valued digital assets. The Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family provides an ideal solution for powering intelligent storage systems for SMBs and helps deliver better ways to help protect, store, and backup data,“ says Bev Crair, General Manager of the Intel Storage Division.

 “Qsan always aims to maximize the price/performance value and return on investment for customers,” added JP Chen, the president and CEO at Qsan. “We’re proud that TrioNAS indeed achieves the goal.”

 The TrioNAS unified storage adopts ZFS file system that employs copy-on-write transactional semantics to avoid data inconsistencies. The self-healing architecture enables the system to detect silent data corruption and correct error on the fly. In addition, TrioNAS is equipped with 80 Plus Platinum power supplies to enhance energy efficiency.
