THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., August 2, 2012 -- Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of data storage systems, today revealed the top ten applications ideally suited for Unified Hybrid Storage solutions. A wide variety of application environments that demand excellent performance, high capacity, and file system interface can all be served by the NST5000 storage solutions.
“Nexsan NST5000 supports unified SAN and NAS as well as highly dense hybrid storage,” said George Symons, Chief Strategy Officer, Nexsan. “Combining unified, hybrid and density brings enormous and unique value to our customers. File storage is growing far more rapidly than any other data type and we natively support NFS and CIFS. Virtual servers and especially virtual desktops get far greater consolidation and amazing price/performance ratios with our hybrid storage. And of course database applications and email both leverage our iSCSI support and our fast flash-based hybrid intelligent caching with their IOPS demand peaks. And to complete the life-cycle, we have scalable density for long-term, cost effective online storage.”
Every business application requires a custom mix of performance and capacity to meet its service levels to the business user. Nexsan uniquely uses a combination of system memory, NVRAM, and SSD integrated with spinning disk to provide dramatically improved performance as well as delivering the capacity applications need. In recent tests, Nexsan demonstrated over 100,000 ops/sec on a system that can range from 18TB to over 1PB of capacity. Top application environments ideally suited for this technology are:
FASTier™ acceleration technology: DRAM + Solid State + Spinning Disk = Superior Price/Performance
Nexsan has addressed the SSD vs. spinning disk dilemma by combining the best of both for a high-performance, high capacity platform. The NST5000 is highly flexible and delivers block and file system interfaces in a variety of configurations. The Hybrid Storage system leverages a mixture of DRAM, NVRAM and SSD to optimize both read and write performance. By using these memory technologies in a sophisticated caching architecture, the NST5000 is able to deliver high performance, over 54,000 IOPS, for as low as $.65 / GB, with overall capacities of over a petabyte.
