NEXSAN NST4000 UNIFIED STORAGE WITH FIBRE OPTION
If you prefer Fibre Channel to other SAN protocols, this scalable storage is built for you. The Nexsan NST4000 by Imation expands the availability of fault-tolerant FASTier™ DRAM caching and Fibre Channel SAN connectivity, and puts them in reach of mid-range businesses
The introduction of NST4000 and NestOS 3.1 brings our NST6000 fault tolerant FASTier DRAM caching and Fibre Channel SAN connectivity features to the mid-range. The addition of Fibre Channel to NST4000 expands NST’s availability for those organizations that need a mid-range storage system but prefer Fibre Channel over other SAN protocols. Fibre Channel adds to NST’s unified storage capability that already includes 10Gb and 1Gb Ethernet for NAS and iSCSI connectivity. NST’s NAS includes support for CIFS/SMB, NFS and FTP.
Scalability – NST4000 offers non-disruptive scaling options that allow you to scale up to 2.1PB in capacity and to scale performance with FASTier™ and offloaded RAID processing. This level of flexibility enables businesses to right size their initial acquisition and grow as application performance or capacity requirements change.
- Performance Agility:
Compared with traditional caching techniques, cost effective FASTier™ technology accelerates performance for mixed application workload environments.
- Unified Flexibility:
Provides a mix of CIFS, NFS and FTP file sharing protocols for enterprise NAS file sharing as well as iSCSI and Fibre Channel SAN block storage protocols for server volume sharing, with inline data compression that shrinks capacity requirements and improves performance.
- Hybrid Scalability:
Scalable storage with options that let you right-size capacity up to 2.1PB and fine-tune performance with FASTier and RAID offload to meet your business’s changing needs.
