Hybrid Flash Storage AS2600G2

Inspur AS2600G2 is an entry-level hybrid flash storage for enterprises’ structured and unstructured applications.

Key Features

Unified storage

  1. Unified SAN + NAS: One storage support both block-level and file-level services. This helps to simplify the data center architecture, reduce operation and maintenance costs, and respond to different business needs.
  2. Protocol convergence: Support iSCSI and FC to meet the storage requirements of different applications, such as database, file sharing, cloud computing.

Advanced architecture

  1. Scale-Out architecture: Support online horizontal expansion and up to 8 controllers, enabling customers’ storage resources to grow linearly to meet the changing business needs.
  2. High availability: Adopt a fully redundant architecture, fully modular, redundant cache, and active-active controller design.
  3. High scalability: Support up to 2,400 hard drives and 8 controllers, and a maximum cache of 256GB.
  4. Intelligent cache: Support active-active mechanism to improve overall storage performance and eliminate performance bottlenecks in complex application environments.

Intelligent software

  1. Intelligent local replication: Three local data protection mechanisms: clone, snapshot, backup. The combination can meet the needs of application testing, development, analysis, backup, etc. It effectively saves storage space and reduces investment costs.
  2. Intelligent volume mirroring: Volume mirroring function allows one volume have two copies, which can keep the IO access uninterrupted when one of the copy is damaged.
  3. Intelligent tiering: Hotspot data can migrate online between different storage mediums to optimize storage cost and performance, and improve customers’ ROI.
  4. Intelligent heterogeneous virtualization: Allow to take over third-party storage resources and form a unified virtual resource pool. Data protection, data migration between storages are provided.
  5. Intelligent thin-provisioning: Physical space no longer limits resource allocation. Support on-demand allocation to reduce early-stage investment and improve the utilization rate of storage resources.
  6. Intelligent management software: Support unified management of the G2 series. Also, an intelligent maintenance management system is built-in to reduce related costs and improve efficiency.
  7. Intelligent RAID: Traditional RAID (TRAID) or/and intelligent RAID (InRAID). Two hot spare methods: hot spare disk and hot spare space. Support Online RAID level migration and RAID-DP protection for single-disk or double-disk failures. Triple-Parity RAID is enabled to protect against three-disk failure. This mechanism ensures zero data loss. Also, multi-drive recovery helps accelerate recovery speed and guarantees performance during recovery.
