Basingstoke, UK -- Infortrend (Public TPE: 2495) today announced that thin provisioning software licenses will be offered as part of the EonStor DS G7i Series standard software package. At no extra cost, SMBs can better optimise storage utilisation and minimise data centre management requirements.
Infortrend thin provisioning technology allows IT managers and data centre administrators to designate virtual storage capacity regardless of data volume physical allocation. As disk space is used only when data writing occurs, flexible and on-demand thin provisioning optimises storage utilisation, simplifies capacity planning and management, and helps reduce data centre power consumption. Whereas previously thin provisioning licenses had to be purchased separately, Infortrend offers better value and convenience to companies by including licenses as standard on select models.
Commenting on the announcement, Infortrend Director of Product Planning Thomas Kao said: "Ever-growing demand for storage capacity is the main challenge for data centre administrators. We are confident that thin provisioning is the ideal solution and a vital component in any SMB storage system. When storage capacity is better-utilised through thin provisioning, it negates the need for unnecessary disk purchases and saves businesses money on redundant storage hardware."
