Nexsan E-Series Storage Systems Now 50% Faster

Latest Release Also Adds New Replication Failback, Enhanced Management Capabilities and Support for VMware VAAI

THOUSAND OAKS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of data storage systems, today announced the release of new firmware for its flagship storage product line, the E-Series high density storage system. This latest upgrade substantially increases the performance of all models of the Nexsan E-Series, from the E18 to the E48 and E60's. Internal testing demonstrates an increase with the new firmware from 40% to over 50% on sequential write performance. The new release also includes several other enhancements, including intelligent failback of replication, VMware VAAI support, and management enhancements.

"Nexsan continues to extend its price/performance advantage with this latest release," said Joe Thompson, vice president of channels at Abacus Solutions, a Nexsan partner. "The E-Series is already an enterprise-class storage solution that provides outstanding value. With these latest enhancements, Nexsan is adding tremendous benefit for existing users while also expanding the market potential for the E-Series with new applications for the technology. That's a real win-win for us as a partner."

The write performance improvements in the release complement the E-Series' strong read performance for industry-leading dense storage. It also makes it an ideal solution for high data throughput applications with dynamic data, as seen in large enterprise backup, and media and entertainment environments with large video ingestion.

Snapshot and Replication for the E-Series has also been enhanced to provide intelligent failback from the replica in recovery scenarios. E-Series Replication now keeps track of all the deltas on the target side in the event of failure, for faster and easier transition back to the primary when available. It adds to many of the E-Series' existing enterprise class features, such as:

  • Support for both one-to-one and many-to-one replication
  • Replication based on snapshots
  • Snapshots that can be mounted on the destination side while replication is active
  • Checkpoint restart

Nexsan also builds on its partnership with VMware in the new release by adding support for VMware vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI). This enables tighter storage integration in VMware vSphere environments to achieve greater efficiencies and scalability. Storage operations are offloaded to the E-Series for enhanced virtual machine performance.

Additional enterprise-class features new in this release include easier integration and management of the E-Series in complex IT environments, with SNMP support for large petabyte-scale deployments, and a management agent that can be deployed as a virtual machine or as a stand-alone appliance. Other enhancements include improvements to disk-health monitoring, increased flexibility in maintaining log data and improved alert functionality.

"E-Series is the core of Nexsan's product line, delivering dense SAN storage as well as capacity for our NST unified hybrid storage products," said Thomas F. Gosnell, head of research and development for the company, and CEO of Nexsan Canada. "This latest release builds on our strong track record for quality, reliability and value, and raises the bar substantially for our competition."

Nexsan's new firmware with VAAI certification will ship on all new E-Series systems starting in Q4 2012. All installed systems are compatible with the upgrade and all customers with a maintenance agreement will receive it under their contract.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?
