Newly featured on the E5510 is optional support for both asynchronous and synchronous data replication.
storage systems provider Nexsan announced the latest member of its E5000 family
of network-attached storage (NAS) systems, the E5510. Offering more than 1PB of
capacity in a small, 27U of rack space, the E5510 combines support for both
asynchronous and synchronous replication and includes the company's FASTier SSD
new NAS system is designed for capacity-intensive applications, including
backup, archiving and primary file storage. E5000 NAS storage systems are
available through Nexsan's network of authorized channel partners, with pricing
that starts at $15,000.
featured on the E5510 is optional support for both asynchronous and synchronous
data replication. The asynchronous data replication feature allows users to configure
off-site data replication separately for each storage pool on the primary E5000
system. In addition, the asynchronous data replication feature allows for the
manual transfer of data on the E5000 to an external storage device for offline
replication. With the synchronous data replication feature, users can mirror
all the data contained in a storage pool between a source Nexsan storage system
and a target Nexsan storage system-both of which are connected to the E5000 via
E5510 features Nexsan's latest technological advancements for high capacity,
synchronous replication, space efficiency and power conservation," said Gary
Watson, CTO of Nexsan. "The new system offers the ultimate in storage
flexibility with enterprise-class features and superior support for virtualized
computing environments, making it a compelling choice for any environment that
needs exceptional scalability, efficiency and performance."
system also provides a highly available NAS system with the flexibility of between
9TB and over 1PB of storage capacity, and features include reservation-less
snapshots, replication, quotas, AD and LDAP integration, and thin provisioning.
Each member of the E5000 family offers Nexsan's E-Centre graphical user
interface for deployment and ongoing management of multiple dispersed systems
from a single pane of glass. E5000 storage pools feature virtualized, online
capacity expansion so administrators can add capacity as needed without any
disruption to users or applications.
features of the E5000 family include AutoMaid technology for up to 85 percent
reduction in power consumption for applications such as backup to disk or
general file storage; extreme density with Active Drawer Technology, an
approach to simplifying maintenance of high-density storage systems by
providing continuous operation even when one of the drive drawers is opened to
service disks or fans; and data protection with support for snapshots,
asynchronous replication, synchronous replication and NDMP.
a provider of asset management, geographic information systems (GIS), and
transportation planning, Data Transfer Solutions (DTS) helps its clients
automate their worlds, reduce their workload and organize their data through
customized technology. Supported by Nexsan partner LH Computer Services, DTS
chose the E5000 Series NAS system to more effectively and efficiently manage
its storage environment.
a user of agile practices to guide our work, we selected the Nexsan E5000 NAS
storage system for primary file storage. In addition to the superior storage
density and operational efficiency it provided, we were especially impressed by
the flexibility of the unit," said Trey Fragala, chief of operations for DTS.
"The system can be configured with a mix of SSD, SAS and SATA drive
technologies depending on the performance and capacity requirements, which
allows for greater storage customization to meet application requirements."
