NST6000_frontstraight

A fully unified, enterprise-class, unified hybrid storage solution that simultaneously supports block and file traffic eliminating the need for organizations to invest in separate SAN and NAS storage systems.

Hybrid Storage  is defined as a combination of solid-state disk (SSD) and hard disk drives (HDD) in a single storage system.

Use SSD to increase the cache memory pool so that I/Os are accelerated before they go through the controller to the back-end disk drives. The larger the cache memory pool, the greater the likelihood of getting a cache hit without having to access the back-end disks—which results in greater application performance.

Get convergence, performance and scalability in a compact, fully unified hybrid storage system that can grow with your organization. The Nexsan NST Hybrid Storage system simultaneously supports Fibre Channel, iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, SMB and FTP protocols within a single storage operating system leveraging DRAM and SSDs to create a caching tier called FASTier™. With FASTier, Nexsan NST Hybrid Storage System is able to support the most demanding block-level SAN and file-level NAS workloads within one system, effectively solving your SAN versus NAS debate.

The NST6000 unified storage system offers high performance controllers and an expanded front-end FASTier™ caching engine connected to efficient E-Series storage arrays of NL-SAS / Performance SAS drives or to compact NST224X storage enclosures of 2.5″ Performance SAS drives.

  • The Nexsan NST6000 along with NestOS 3.0 is highly scalable unified storage solution in a compact footprint that uses a caching technology called FASTier® to accelerate reads and writes I/O requests. FASTier intelligently and automatically moves data through solid-state and spinning disk to speed your virtual and cloud environments.

    Built with the time-constrained IT administrator in mind, a revolutionary GUI streamlines setup and management to ease the pain of mid-sized organizations challenged by storage complexity.

    Key Features Include:

    • Block: Fibre Channel, iSCSI
    • File: NFS, CIFS, SMB and FTP
    • NestOS storage operating system
    • FASTier Acceleration Technology
    • Multi-Core Xeon CPUs
    • 32 GB Fault-Tolerant FASTier Write Cache
    • Enterprise-class eMLC SSD or SLC SSD
    • Scalable up to 48 SSDs or 19.2 TB
    • 2.5″ 10K SAS HDD
    • 3.5″ 15K SAS, 7200 NL-SAS HDD
    • Scalable up to 5 PB (using NL-SAS drives)
    • Scalable up to 756 TB (using Performance SAS drives)

  • Unified

    The Nexsan NST6000 unified hybrid storage appliance is ideal for organizations seeking significantly increased application performance and simplified storage administration.

    The NST6000 is a unified storage system.The NST6000 supports block-level – Fibre Channel, iSCSI (SAN) and file-level – NFS, CIFS, SMB, FTP (NAS) protocols without sacrificing performance and eliminating the need for separate software stacks and block and file licenses.

    The NST6000 conveniently manages all protocols, pools, shares and LUNs within a single system. E-Centre, NST6000’s single-pane management interface, provides a single view to manage all SAN and NAS storage.

    Hybrid

    NST6000 is a hybrid storage system. NestOS, NST6000’s operating system, integrates the use of solid-state caching and hard disk storage to enable organizations to meet the most demanding I/O performance requirements of both SAN and NAS workloads.

    NestOS’s FASTier caching technology is smart. It includes fault tolerant DRAM for the highest possible write caching performance and enterprise-class SSDs to accelerate read I/O, allowing you to independently customize your performance and capacity points.

    FASTier read/write cache devices can be customized at a storage pool level, enabling organizations to extend the use of FASTier to many applications in the data center.

    Unified Hybrid

    The combination of solid-state technology, Fibre Channel connectivity, and a highly scalable back-end storage infrastructure makes the NST6000 platform ideal for continuous data availability supporting mission-critical IT applications.

    Features & Benefits

    Complete host connectivity in a single system and software stack: Fibre Channel, iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, SMB and FTP. NST6000 provides fully unified storage with no need to administer discrete tasks, code bases and separate licenses.

    Application-friendly: Flexible read/write I/O acceleration tier, customizable to the needs of the Pools, LUNs or Shares presented to Hosts. NST6000’s FASTier acceleration technology increases storage I/O performance, lowers latency and extends the life of SSDs.

    Smart, practical use of solid-state technology: Fault-tolerant DRAM delivers the highest write caching performance possible and enterprise-class SSDs accelerate read I/O performance. NST6000’s hybrid storage solution optimizes the use of solid-state technology for maximum effectiveness.

    High-performance continuous availability: Powerful active/active controllers linked together via a high-speed backplane provide up to 700,000 IOPs and non-disruptive failover. NST6000’s mirrored write cache with cache vaulting ensures the highest levels of performance and availability. Combined with active/active RAID controllers within the underlying E-Series storage, NST6000 provides high availability storage that can scale up to 5 petabytes.

    Adaptable storage infrastructure: Use SSDs, Performance-SAS HDDs and NL-SAS HDDs to meet varying storage requirements. NST6000 is a unified hybrid storage platform that can be customized and deployed for performance-oriented workloads, capacity-oriented workloads, or deploy both performance and capacity tiers within the same system. With the non-disruptive addition of FASTier or new disk enclosures, performance and capacity can be independently scaled.

    Intuitive single-pane management: Interface and set-up assistants designed for the IT generalist. For advanced users the management software offers a command line interface for scripting. NST6000’s E-Centre GUI provides a single view to manage file and block traffic while leveraging various types of storage media.
