Why Partner with Nexsan?

Nexsan E-Series™

The Nexsan E-Series™ represents the next generation of SAN storage systems delivering dramatic enhancements in efficiency and ease-of-use to help mid-market organizations and the mid-tier of the Enterprise add more capacity while lowering overall power, space and cost requirements. The E-Series delivers industry leading density and power efficiency for the smallest storage footprint by consuming less than one-third the power in one-third the rack space as typical arrays.

The E-Series is comprised of:

  • E60 storage system - 60 drives in 4U
  • E48 storage system - 48 drives in 4U
  • E18 storage system - 18 drives in 2U

Expansion Units are also available. Nexsan E-Series disk arrays are ideal for virtualized IT environments and general data storage because they offer a variety of interfaces including Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and SAS as well as supporting mixed SATA/SAS/SSD to meet varying workloads. VMware, Exchange, and database applications can leverage 450 or 600 GB 15K SAS drives, while backup-to-disk, surveillance, or general data storage scenarios can leverage 1, 2, or 3TB SATA drives. AutoMAID® technology saves up to 85% on power and cooling when disks are not being used. Nexsan E-Series delivers unsurpassed reliability, storage density, and ease of use.

Nexsan NST5000™ Series

The Nexsan NST5000™ Hybrid Storage Sytems deliver solid-state enhanced Network Attached Storage (NAS) and iSCSI storage for unprecedented levels of performance at the price point of spinning disk. The NST5000 is equipped with FASTier® acceleration technology that automatically and intelligently leverages the speed of solid-state to accelerate the underlying spinning disks for up to 10X performance over traditional disk-only storage. The result is a radical new cost-per-I/O that allows organizations to go further in their virtual and cloud environments.

Nexsan NST 5000 storage systems are ideal for virtualized IT environments, which prefer to store VMware virtual machines on an NFS share. FASTier™ SSD cache accelerates random I/O performance of SATA drives by up to 3X, delivering a system that meets the most performance AND capacity requirements, flexibly and cost-effectively. With capacities that can be added on-the-fly with no downtime up to 1PB, the NST5000 series scales to meet the needs of large general data storage, surveillance, digital media, or backup-to-disk applications. Built-in, easy-to-deploy snapshots and replication are for ideal for protecting physical servers in the local or remote datacenter or cloud infrastructure.

Nexsan Assureon®

The Nexsan Assureon® archive storage system is ideal for implementation of storage optimization, regulatory and corporate compliance or the long-term archiving of unstructured data. Assureon archive storage systems can house from 3TB to multiple PB of unstructured data. Ideal for organizations that must comply with governmental regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), SEC 17A and PCI DSS, Assureon is an excellent choice for multiple vertical markets such as Healthcare, Financial, and Government (Federal/State/Local) as well as call centers, video surveillance and organizations with multiple remote offices.

Nexsan Assureon archive storage systems are ideal for storing data which will never change, such as x-rays, MRIs, business contracts, reference materials and photographs that need to be retained securely for decades and which need to be instantly available. As such, Assureon is commonly used to offload primary storage of non-changing data, thereby freeing it up and shrinking the backup burden. The multi-tenant architecture and ultimate AES-256 based security make the Assureon an ideal choice for private and public cloud-based archive projects worldwide. AutoMAID® power management can reduce power and cooling by up to 85% when disks are not being accessed.
