The Nexsan E-Series SAN storage solutions deliver efficiency and ease-of-use to help mid-market organizations add more capacity while lowering overall power, space and cost requirements. Innovative ease-of-use functionality makes deploying and managing storage as simple as possible for the resource constrained IT administrator. The E-Series delivers density and power efficiency for the smallest storage footprint by consuming less than one third the power in one third the rack space as typical storage arrays.


  • The Nexsan E-Series V is an ultra-reliable, high-density, high performance, efficient storage array that enables lower storage costs, maximum storage uptime, and data storage ROI boosts for your organization. E-Series V systems consume less than one-third of the power in one-third of the rack space of typical arrays, with up to 360 terabytes of capacity in just 4U and now offers 400% more memory and 50% increased CPU speed over the E-SeriesTM.

    The E-Series V is offered in four core configurations: E60VT (360 TB in 4U)E48VT (288 TB in 4U)E32V (38.4 TB in 2U, all 2.5″ drives), and E18V (108 TB in 2U).   

    Each can be easily expanded with additional capacity by adding the corresponding expansion unit: E60XV, E48XV, E32XV, or E18XV.

    E-Series V Key Benefits

    • Reliability – features Anti-Vibration Design and Cool Drive TechnologyTM.
    • Availability – uses Active Drawer TechnologyTM and redundant hot swappable active components.
    • Density – up to 60 drives in 4U.
    • High Performance – utilizes Imation’s latest multi RAID engine controller technology.
    • Energy Efficient – delivers up to 87% reduction in power while lowering your cooling needs through the use of AutoMAID®.
    • Flexible Connectivity – connects via SAS, Fibre Channel or iSCSI.
    • Easy to Manage – remotely manage one or many systems within a single, intuitive GUI.

    Optimize Your Capacity Needs Now & Expand In The Future

    The E-Series V storage arrays and expansion units offer mid-size organizations affordable enterprise-level Fibre Channel, SAS and/or iSCSI SAN storage used for a variety of capacity-optimized and performance-driven applications.

    For larger organizations, E-Series V is a versatile SAN or DAS solution to stay ahead of the enormous data growth, demanding workloads, and high resiliency requirements in media & entertainment, government, healthcare, HPC, financial, surveillance and service provider sectors.

    Turbocharge Your Performance For Ultra-Fast Write Speed

    E-Series V features an advanced active/active controller design, including use of a dedicated hardware engine, or “turbocharger”, which accelerates RAID parity generation and doubles the sequential write performance over the prior version of E-Series. The turbocharged E-Series V is ideal for back-up and recovery applications and continuous data streaming bulk storage applications.

    Achieve More Efficiency In Higher Density Than Typical Arrays

    Organizations deploying E-Series V san storage arrays can mix and match capacity-optimized HDDs and performance-optimized HDDs and SSDs to meet performance and capacity needs. E-Series V arrays consume less than one-third of the power in one-third of the rack space of typical arrays, with up to 360 terabytes of capacity in just one 4U, and up to a total of 1.08 PB in a fully-scaled, 12U configuration.

    With E-Series V systems, you can engage Nexsan AutoMAID® disk management capabilities to reduce power consumption by up to 87%, lowering operating expenses and extending the overall life of the system.

    Ensure Your Data Is Protected With Qualified, Reliable Design

    The E-Series V storage array exceeds the most stringent reliability demands, leveraging an innovative hardware design including Cool Drive TechnologyTM and anti-vibration design that significantly reduces heat and vibration while improving system reliability and performance. The reliability of E-Series V is qualified through extensive stress testing before shipment. Array-based snaps and asynchronous replication extend E-Series V data protection capabilities.

    Access Your Data Continuously

    The E-Series V features multipathing support and dual redundant, hot-swappable active components. As an administrator, you will receive SNMP alerts or email notifications of component failures. Upon drive failure, a spare drive is automatically rebuilt into the RAID set for complete business continuity.

    With up to 16GB of battery-backed and flash-protected cache per controller, the E-Series V solution mirrors cache between controllers in a dual controller configuration. Active Drawer TechnologyTM overcomes the challenges of competitive arrays by allowing a technician to service a drawer of drives easily while keeping your data available
