Nexsan E-Series Achieves Storage Certification on Cisco UCS Servers

High Density Storage System Addresses Growing Data Management Needs of Cisco Unified Computing System Customers

THOUSANDS OAKS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/01/12 -- Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of data storage systems, today announced that its E-Series high density SAN storage solution has been certified on both the Cisco Unified Computing Systems (UCS) B-Series and C-Series server lines. The Nexsan E18, E18X, E48, E48X, E60 and E60X products are now all supported on Cisco UCS B-series and C-Series via fibre channel. Nexsan and Cisco have a strong and close technology partnership and this certification enables Cisco UCS customers to leverage all the power, efficiency and price performance of the Nexsan E-Series SAN via the UCS platform environment. Customers opting for the enterprise-class Cisco UCS servers can now enjoy complementary dense storage for unprecedented volumes of compute power and storage capacity in the least amount of space.

"We use the Nexsan E-Series today with Cisco UCS internally and have implemented it with great success for several of our customers as well," said Doug Renner, founder and CEO of Peak IP Solutions, a partner of both Nexsan and Cisco, and an expert in Unified Computing, Unified Communications and Data Management solutions. "The E-Series is highly efficient, reliable and you can't beat it for price performance. Nexsan often doesn't get the look it deserves when competing in the storage industry. Now that it is certified with the UCS platform, it's a great option for Cisco UCS customers."

The Nexsan E-Series™ is an advanced SAN storage system for organizations needing an extremely dense and highly reliable solution. It delivers industry-leading density and power efficiency for the smallest storage footprint with up to 3X the capacity in the same space as a typical array while consuming up to 85% less power and cooling when idle. A fault tolerant and highly reliable architecture ensures enterprise-class data protection and innovative ease-of-use functionality makes deploying and managing storage a simple task for the resource constrained IT administrator. It also comes pre-configured so it can be up and running in 10 minutes or less with intuitive wizards -- no professional services required.

Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) is a next-generation data center platform that unites computing, network, storage access, and virtualization into a cohesive system designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business agility. The platform is certified for leading enterprise applications, virtualization, and operating systems.

"Nexsan's expertise in capacity-optimized storage has led to industry-leading efficiencies at the lowest possible cost-per-terabyte for applications like disk backup or cloud storage," said Victoria Grey, senior vice president, marketing at Nexsan. "Cisco UCS users can take advantage of the superior TCO from both UCS and the E-Series, as demonstrated by density, energy efficiency, and reliability of the combined solution."
