Nexsan Releases New E5510 Ultra-High Capacity NAS Storage SystemNew Member of the Nexsan E5000 Family of Storage Systems Delivers More Than 1 PB and Supports Synchronous Replication for Capacity-Intensive Applications (November 08, 2011)
THOUSAND OAKS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/11 -- Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of disk-based storage systems, today announced the latest member of its E5000 family of NAS storage systems, the E5510. Offering more than 1 PB of capacity in a small 27U of rack space, the E5510 combines support for both asynchronous and synchronous replication and includes Nexsan's revolutionary FASTier SSD caching technology. The new NAS system is ideal for capacity-intensive applications including backup, archiving and primary file storage.
"The E5510 features Nexsan's latest technological advancements for high capacity, synchronous replication, space efficiency and power conservation," said Gary Watson, CTO, Nexsan. "The new system offers the ultimate in storage flexibility with enterprise-class features and superior support for virtualized computing environments making it a compelling choice for any environment that needs exceptional scalability, efficiency and performance."
Newly featured on the E5510 is optional support for both asynchronous and synchronous data replication. The asynchronous data replication feature allows users to configure off-site data replication separately for each storage pool on the primary E5000 system. In addition, the asynchronous data replication feature allows for the manual transfer of data on the E5000 to an external storage device for offline replication. With the synchronous data replication feature, users can mirror all the data contained in a storage pool between a source Nexsan storage system and a target Nexsan storage system -- both of which are connected to the E5000 via Fibre Channel.
The E5510 is the latest addition to Nexsan's E5000 family of NAS storage systems. It provides a highly available NAS system with the flexibility of between 9 TB and over 1 PB of storage capacity and Nexsan's industry-leading storage density, power efficiency, and enterprise-class reliability. Powerful, yet easy to use features include reservation-less snapshots, replication, quotas, AD and LDAP integration, and thin provisioning.
Each member of the E5000 Family offers Nexsan's patent-pending E-Centre graphical user interface for easy deployment and ongoing management of multiple dispersed systems from a single pane of glass. E5000 storage pools feature virtualized, online capacity expansion so administrators can add capacity as needed without any disruption to users or applications.
Key features of the Nexsan E5000 Family include:
- FASTier, an exclusive Nexsan feature which leverages multiple tiers of SSD technology to accelerate storage system performance with NL-SAS, SATA or SAS drives -- ideal for virtualized operating environments or random I/O workloads.
- AutoMAID® Technology, delivering "Speed with Green" for up to 85% reduction in power consumption for popular applications such as backup to disk or general file storage.
- Extreme Density with Active Drawer Technology, a revolutionary approach to simplifying maintenance of high density storage systems by providing continuous operation even when one of the drive drawers is opened to service disks or fans.
- High Availability featuring dual redundant hot-pluggable storage controllers with automatic failover for no single point-of-failure configurations.
- Storage Virtualization enabled features with the flexibility to pool multiple LUNs and add additional storage on-the-fly with automatic storage I/O rebalancing.
- Shared Files for servers and users via CIFS, NFS, or both protocols simultaneously.
- Data Protection with support for snapshots, asynchronous replication, synchronous replication, and NDMP.
- Rapid Deployment in which the system is up and running in just 15 minutes.
