The company was awarded placement on the list based on criteria, including supported protocols, data protection, hardware configuration, management and technical support.

DCIG evaluated more than 100 different backup targets of which 25 met DCIG’s criteria for a 2PB+ cyber secure backup target for the US edition of the report. The report focuses on the TOP 5 cyber secure backup targets that offer file protocol support – either NFS, CIFS or both –and includes the distinguishing features that earned Nexsan a DGIG TOP 5 award. The report is available for free download here.

“Upon DCIG’s completion of reviewing 25 2PB+ cyber secure backup targets, DCIG ranked the Nexsan Unity NV10000 as a TOP 5 solution,” writes report author Jerome M. Wendt, Lead Data Protection Analyst at DCIG. “Having just celebrated its 25th year of providing storage solutions, Nexsan differentiates itself from competitors by providing cost-effective storage. The durability of its storage systems has also become well-documented in the storage industry as they exemplify the ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ tagline.”

Among the “Distinguishing Features” listed in the report for the Nexsan Unity NV10000 were all-inclusive software licensing; FASTierTM cache to accelerate backup and restore performance; highest TB/RU of any cyber secure backup target evaluated; integration with Nexsan Assureon® to create an immutable, unbreakable backup solution; and support for block, file and object storage interfaces. The report concludes with a highlight of the Unity NV6000, which offers the same software and levels of data protection but is intended for deployment in enterprises with smaller backup and recovery requirements.

The NV10000 product enhances the Unity platform with All-Flash NVMe technology, ensuring top-notch performance, ample storage space and versatility. With this technology, the Unity platform can handle data transfers at speeds of up to 20GB/s, adapting smoothly as application demands change. The platform serves as an excellent primary storage option or as a FASTierTM cache acceleration layer to speed up data access. Additionally, the Unity NV10000 supports various configurations and is built for easy expansion, meeting an organization’s specific storage and performance needs.

“We are proud that the Unity NV10000 was named a TOP 5 cyber secure backup target by DCIG and included in the firm’s report,” said Andy Hill, Executive Vice President of Nexsan. “With cyber threats becoming more frequent and increasingly sophisticated, organizations need to ensure that their backups are fully secure to protect against data loss and downtime.
