Qsan for years has won many proven records in enterprise market. Now TrioNAS is aimed to bring the enterprise-class Deduplication - Compressionexperiences and award-winning features into SMB and workgroup segments at competitive price, helping organisations to manage IT infrastructure at minimum efforts.  TrioNAS Unified Storage

The Hardware Overview

  • Processor: Intel® Xeon® E3
  • Front-end: 2x 10GbE + 2 x GbE ports
  • Backend: Up to 12 SATA II / SATA III HDD or SSD
  • Memory: 32GB ECC
  • Form factor: 2U rack-mount with 12 hot-swappable SATA drive bays

Design for Backup

TrioNAS U221 features enterprise-class DeDup eliminating duplicate copies of redundant data so as to save storage capacity significantly, and thereby SMBs can optimize storage space utilization and save costs greatly. Plus Compression feature to encode information using fewer bits than original representation, storage capacity can be saved up to 90%.

Unified: NAS + iSCSI SAN + Cloud

TrioNAS consolidates NAS and IP-based iSCSI SAN and allows users to link these to Amazon S3 cloud storage for data protection. With TrioNAS, organizations can manage files and run applications in one device to reduce hardware requirements. The integration of Amazon S3 storage allows users to easily backup data into the cloud and, with just one click, disaster recovery can be fulfilled effortlessly.

Reliable  

The ZFS file system of TrioNAS can avoid data inconsistencies and provide a robust environment. In addition, TrioNAS offers 列印snapshot, volume/file system cloning, remote replication as well as anti-virus features to further guarantee data safety. The RAID levels it supports: 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60.  TrioNAS Unified Storage

Green

TrioNAS U221 is equipped with 80 Plus Platinum power supplies to enhance energy efficiency for power savings, peak reduction and improved power quality. In addition, TrioNAS features Thin Provisioning to allocate disk storage space in a flexible manner based on the minimum space required. With all the green designs, TrioNAS U221 helps organizations to save resources and money.

Efficient  

TrioNAS U221 is designed to addresses the explosion of unstructured data and files, where reads/writes are random, by treating random writes as sequential blocks. To provide better file data sharing, the ZFS-based storage system supports SMB v2.0, NFS v3/v4, AFP v3.3, FTP & SFTP, WebDAV, and iSCSI CHAP. In addition, TrioNAS U221 offers very easy-to-use management tools including QCentral, SNMP trap, performance states, start-up wizard and so on. All these functions allows SMBs and worTRIONASk groups to manage TrioNAS U221 at minimum efforts and greatly enhance the efficiency in the working environment.  TrioNAS Unified Storage

   

Affordable

TrioNAS U221 adopts Intel Xeon E3 CPU to provide high availability and performance. At the same price, TrioNASU 221 provide more superb enterprise-level features; providing the same feature, TrioNASU 221 offers the best values to customers.

Features

Bring Enterprise-level Features to SMB Market

Integration NAS and iSCSI SAN, TrioNAS U221 unified architecture help customers to solve many data management problems with a single system, making complex and fast growing storage needs much more manageable and affordable.

DeDeup

TrioNAS U221 features enterprise-class DeDup eliminating duplicate copies of redundant data so as to save storage capacity significantly, and thereby SMBs can optimise storage space utilisation and save costs greatly. Qsan DeDup technology provides real-time block-level redundancy removing function that is more efficient than file level one. The storage capacity savings with DeDup differ per data type. In general, DeDup can grant TrioNAS U221 space savings of up to 90% in backup and virtual machine, 70% in database backup and 40% for email archive.

Deduplication Process

ZFS File System

To provide better data integrity, TrioNAS U221 adopts ZFS file system that employs copy-on-write transactional semantics to validate data stored under its protection to avoid data inconsistencies. The self-healing architecture enables the system to detect silent data corruption and correct error on the fly. In addition, users no longer need to predetermine the size of a file system since it grow automatically within the disk space allocated to the pool to save storage capacity. If the storage pool becomes overcrowded, user can even grow it on a live TrioNAS U221 system.

80 Plus Platinum

TrioNAS U221 is equipped with 80 Plus Platinum power supplies to enhance energy efficiency for power savings, peak reduction and improved power quality. The systems can automatically detect the fan speed, temperature as well as current/voltage inside the PSU to provide optimized settings and status alerts. Besides, the strain relief bushing can securely anchor and protect cables from push/pull and twist forces.

SSD Caching

SSD caching allows users to assign SSD as the system’s read/write cache to fully utilize the benefits of SSD for business-critical applications that require quick read/write speed and random I/O.

Thin Provisioning

TrioNAS U221 delivers thin provisioning to provide more physical resources than actually available capacity so that organizations can avoid allocated but unused storage and be able to purchase only the disk capacity they actually need. Therefore, thin provisioning feature can significantly raise storage utilization and help enterprises to save cost.

Compression

Data compression can also help users to better utilize the resources. With data compression, the size of data stored in TrioNAS can be greatly reduced to save storage capacity.

Advanced Data Protection

To keep data safe, TrioNAS offers numerous advanced data protection features including snapshot, volume clone, file system clone, remote replication as well as 3-year free McAfee antivirus protection.

Multiple Protocol Supports

TrioNAS U221 supports SMB v2.0 and NFS v3/v4 for Unicode files. It also supports AFP v3.3, FTP, SFTP, WebDAV and iSCSI CHAP that is always an integration headache on Linux system.

Easy to Manage

TrioNAS U221 can be centrally managed by QCentral the java-based cross-platform management interface. In addition, TrioNAS U221 also features online firmware upgrade, event notification via email & SNMP, performance states, system monitoring, MAID & S.M.A.R.T. supports, start-up wizard, wake-on-LAN and web UI.

TRIONAS Consol

UnifiedAUTH

The patent-pending UnifiedAUTH technology is that any OS client (Windows, Linux, Mac, FTP, and WebDAV) and iSCSI CHAP can log onto the TrioNAS device through Microsoft Active Directory with a single log-in. With UnifiedAUTH, IT administrators can just manage employees’ accounts by Windows AD or LDAP, while end-users can easily use their Windows AD/LDAP ID and password to login via clients of any popular OS.
