Nexsan storage arrays make backup and recovery fast, reliable and cost efficient by eliminating performance and management bottlenecks and reducing the overall amount of space, power and cooling otherwise required. Nexsan storage arrays offer the perfect balance of easy, efficient, enterprise-class storage purpose-built for the mid-market and are ideal as in integral part of the protection architecture.

KEY CONSIDERATION FOR BACKUP AND RECOVERY

We all know how important it is to protect the crown jewels of any business—the data. Chief among IT challenges for data protection are the ever-growing rates of data and associated volumes.

The overall objective of backup and recovery is to offer the ability to recover from any failure or data loss within a specified period of time. The process of backing up, especially to disk, is generally highly automated after initial setup across applications, platforms and virtual environments. Historically, backing data up was largely the exclusive domain of tape rather than disk. Breakthroughs in disk technologies and pricing have led to very dense arrays that are power, cost and performance efficient. This has caused a shift in the primary target of a backup or recovery from a tape library to a disk library. In fact, according to a 2010 survey by the Enterprise Strategy Group, 62 percent of organizations currently back up to disk-based storage and then to tape; 18 percent back up to disk only; 20 percent continue to back up directly to tape (source: the modernization of backup: more disk, less tape by searchstorage.com).

PRODUCT RECOMMENDATION

Nexsan E-Series was been purpose-built to make your job easier. Battle-tested to deliver reliable, high-performance storage. Get the throughput to process the most demanding workloads like 24×7 video surveillance, media editing, and scientific analytics processing.

  • Backing up your data has never been faster with the new E-Series P controllers delivering more then 2X the performance. Not only is disk hardware fast, but software that allows for Synthetic Full backups greatly enhance performance.

  • Recovery of your data is also faster due to the aggressive Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs), partially because all RAID protected disk arrays can read faster than they can write. In addition, being able to only read the blocks required greatly reduces recovery time over tape.

  • Increase power, space, and cost effeciencies with our highly dense and energy efficient storage. Our exclusive AutoMAID innovation, saves up to 87% on power and cooling compared to other arrays.

  • Enjoy unparalleled level of reliability with our industry leading reliability rate, hot-swappable devices, multi-path IO and no single point-of-failure architecture. The risk to business continuity is an important consideration when choosing a data protection solution.
