The “BEAST” Is Back – Delivers 480TB of Highly Efficient Storage in a Standard 4U Rack

The Nexsan Beast Storage System Provides Deployment Options Up to 4.8PB in a 42U Rack

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – February 16, 2016 – Nexsan™, a global leader in secure storage, backup and data management solutions, today announced the next-generation Nexsan BEASTTM storage array. This practical, accessible, cost optimized storage workhorse has been engineered to deliver superior reliability, availability and energy efficiency along with storage density that enables 60 drives, or 480TB, in a standard 4U rack, expandable up to 4.8PB in a 42U rack.

The latest generation of the well-known Nexsan SATABeast-branded storage array, the new Nexsan BEAST delivers up to 85% power reduction through the use of AutoMaid® disk management technology. This reduces operational expenses and extends the overall life of the system, both conserving energy while optimizing performance.

Designed to accommodate 3.5-inch SATA drives in a dense space, Nexsan BEAST systems don’t require the use of extended racks. Innovative mechanical design, including Cool Drive Technology and anti-vibration design, significantly reduces heat and head vibration in the unit for improved system reliability and performance. Nexsan BEAST systems are also fully redundant with hot swappable components including controllers, hard-disk drives, power supplies and fans.

“We are pleased to bring back the Nexsan BEAST, one of the best known brands in highly efficient storage,” said Bob Fernander, CEO. “As data growth explodes like never before, today’s market demands more cost effective ways to efficiently store data with the reliability needed for even the most critical applications. With superior availability and scalability, Nexsan BEAST is ideal for high volume applications including digital video surveillance, big data repositories, data archives and disk-to-disk backup as well as the channel partners that serve them. Its high density, high efficiency design is simply second to none.”
