EASAIO is introducing the next generation of Ethernet storage with SAN solutions that provide enterprises of all sizes with flexible, scale-out, high-performance storage.
Using innovative software, industry standard commodity hardware, and Ethernet, EASAIO storage arrays enable a scale-out Ethernet SAN architecture that is ideally suited for dynamic high performance computing, video, virtualization and cloud environments.
EASAIO storage products take full advantage of Ethernet SANs simplicity to deliver storage that will outperform Fibre Channel and iSCSI. With minimal overhead and a scale-out design, we deliver up to 700,000 IOPS and 4,800 MB/s per chassis.
Each data packet is checked for bit errors and all packets are acknowledged.
Low latency over 10 and 40 GbE allows dropped packets to be retransmitted immediately ensuring high throughput and reliability.
SIMPLICITY and SCALE
AoE is a simple way to move storage out of your servers and onto an Ethernet storage network.
With AoE, disk read/write requests are placed directly into Ethernet frames/packets.
AoE packets don’t need TCP/IP so they are easy to process, and make storage safer, easier to manage and expand.
Ethernet SAN technology based on ATA over Ethernet (AoE) is a connectionless protocol that connects servers and storage directly across Layer 2 Ethernet.
It does not require TCP/IP like iSCSI or proprietary networks like Fibre Channel.
It also does not require user configured multi-path IO (MPIO) software.
Ethernet SAN packets are automatically sent over every available network path between the server and storage (without MPIO configuration).
With the simplicity of Layer 2 Ethernet, EASAIO elevates network performance and improves operational effectiveness in deploying dynamic, large-scale, multi-workload environments.
Its modular, pay-as-you-grow architecture and easy-to-use software solutions are backed by proven support, design, and implementation.
