Sunnyvale, Calif., November 21, 2022 – StorCentric®, which offers the world’s most comprehensive portfolio of secure purpose-built data management solutions, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the Nexsan EZ-NAS the Winner for the 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Awards, in the Storage: SMB Category. In addition, the Nexsan Unity NV10000 has been named a Finalist in the Storage: Enterprise Category.
This annual award program celebrates innovative vendors in the IT channel across 38 different technology categories, in critical business areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. The selection process for this year’s winners was overseen by a panel of CRN editors and is based on a review of hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria. These include key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and best fit with customer and solution provider needs.
The Nexsan EZ-NAS, network attached storage (NAS) platform, features an easy to configure 1U form factor and four drives with up to 72 TB of raw capacity and 1.5 GB/s of throughput, as well as advanced enterprise-class features such as in-line compression, AD support and data-at-rest encryption. The Nexsan EZ-NAS also comes with the Retrospect software for optional add-on services, including data backup, cloud connector and ransomware anomaly detection. The EZ-NAS array is ideal for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises’ edge deployments.
The Nexsan Unity NV10000 is an enterprise-class NVMe all-flash storage platform, which boosts performance by increasing bandwidths of up to 20GB/s, enabling users to scale performance as application needs evolve. The platform also supports immutable block and file and S3 object locking, for data backup that is unchangeable and cannot be encrypted, even by internal bad actors. And, when utilizing the NV10000 together with the Nexsan Assureon for backups, channel partners and their end customers enjoy an Unbreakable Backup solution that provides fast and seamless recoverability from ransomware attacks that can be implemented in various configurations including tiered, replicated and high availability. Nexsan Unity NV10000 also delivers innovative features such as high availability, snapshots, ESXi integration, in-line compression, FASTier caching, asynchronous replication, data at rest encryption and storage pool scrubbing to protect against bit rot, avoiding silent data corruption. Ideal applications include big data, analytics, backup and streaming.
“The EZ-NAS delivers Nexsan’s award-winning enterprise storage and is specifically designed for simplified deployment and management. It is the perfect fit for many data center applications such as edge repositories, digital video and media workflows, as well as video surveillance applications,” said Surya Varanasi, CTO, StorCentric. “EZ-NAS can also protect high-value data from the unexpected, as a file backup target. With the optional Retrospect software license, the EZ-NAS enables secure backups, data sharing and disaster recovery use cases.”
“The Nexsan Unity NV10000 was engineered from the ground up with superior performance, capacity and flexibility to address the requirements of today’s modern applications,” continued Varanasi. “And it provides unrivaled data security, regulations compliance and ransomware recoverability for complete peace of mind.”
“We are indeed honored to have not just one, but two of Nexsan’s premier storage platforms recognized by the esteemed CRN Tech Innovator Awards,” concluded Varanasi.
“Our CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize those technology vendors that are making the biggest impacts in digital transformation for solutions providers with unique, cutting-edge products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “It is my pleasure to congratulate each and every one of our 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Award winners.
