TAIPEI, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Infortrend® (Public TPE: 2495) today announced support for single logical drives (LD) up to 512TB in size. The increased single LD capacity allows users to better employ higher capacity disks and increase total capacity utilization, especially in storage-hungry applications such as media editing, backup, and archiving. Larger single LD capacity also means easier storage configuration and greater flexibility.
Over the last two years, disk capacity has grown exponentially. Business-class drives in 6TB are very popular and 8TB drives are also becoming commonplace. Following this trend, Infortrend expanded single LD capacity to 512TB so that IT managers can easily deploy Infortrend RAID systems with fewer LDs and remove the need for capacity-consuming partitioning due to RAID logical drive parity requirements. This development simplifies management and helps users better utilize hard drives for improved return on investment and considerable savings.
As an example, an EonStor DS 3012 system (2U 12-bay) populated with 8TB drives offers 96TB raw capacity. With the 512TB allotment the entire array fits within one LD, with no need for the multiple tasks required in multi-LD configuration. Also, just one hard drive is used as parity requirement in RAID 5 or two for RAID 6, instead of the several hard drives required in any multi-LD topology.
"Large logical drives are a natural evolution of our effort to make storage easier to use and more future-proof as drive capacity grows and users require bigger capacities", commented Thomas Kao, Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.
