storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to consolidated, block level data storage. SANs are primarily used to enhance storage devices, such as disk arrays and tape libraries, accessible to servers so that the devices appear like locally attached devices to the operating system. A SAN typically has its own network of storage devices that are generally not accessible through the local area network by other devices.

    Imation’s Nexsan SAN storage arrays deliver the smallest footprint with up to 60 disks in 4U of rack space while consuming 85% less power when idle. Enterprise-class reliability and leading cost-per-terabyte optimize the SAN storage infrastructure for backup and recovery, bulk storage and much more for traditional, virtual and cloud environments. The Nexsan NST-Series delivers a hybrid of solid-state and spinning disk for iSCSI and NAS to meet the most intensive application requirements like server and desktop virtualization, databases and more. The radical new cost-per-I/O of Nexsan’s Hybrid Storage allows organizations to do more than ever before.

    • E-SERIES V :  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 240 terabytes of capacity in just 4U and now offers 400% more memory and 50% increased CPU speed over the E-SeriesTM.
    • NST-SERIES : The NST-Series Unified Hybrid Storage solutions for NAS and iSCSI features FASTier® acceleration technology which leverages a modest amount of solid-state to exponentially increase the performance of the underlying spinning disks for up to 10X performance over traditional storage. NST6000NST6000MNST5000, NST4000

    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.

    Nimble Storage’s Adaptive Flash platform is the first storage solution to eliminate the flash performance and capacity tradeoff.

    The Adaptive Flash platform is based on Nimble’sCASL™ architecture, and InfoSight™, the company’s data sciences-based approach to the storage lifecycle.

    Nimble-Virtual-IT-Storage-LifeCycle

    • Flexible scaling of storage resources to satisfy the changing demands of business-critical applications
    • Five times greater performance and capacity density than legacy storage systems
    • Up to a 75% reduction in data footprint, and a 10x reduction in datacenter rack space
    • Non-disruptive and independent scaling of performance and capacity, within a single array or a cluster
    • As many as 90 days of hourly snapshots on a single array
    • WAN-efficient replication of snapshot data for disaster recovery
    • Peak storage health driven by powerful data sciences
    • Greater than five nines system uptime

    Nimble Storage CS-Series arrays are the building blocks of the Adaptive Flash platform. Nimble arrays deliver performance and capacity efficiency, seamless scalability and clustering, and feature integrated data protection, data sciences-based management, and support.

    • The CS210 and CS215 provide value and performance for small to medium-sized IT organizations or remote offices, for workloads such as Microsoft Exchange and VDI.
    • The CS300 is ideal for midsize IT organizations or distributed sites of larger organizations. It offers the best capacity per $ for workloads like Microsoft applications, VDI, or virtual server consolidation. The CS300 delivers 1.6x more IOPS than the CS215.
    • The CS500 offers advanced performance for larger-scale deployments or IO-intensive workloads, like larger-scale VDI, and Oracle or SQL Server databases, and provides the best performance and IOPS per $. The CS500 achieves 5x the performance of the CS215.
    • The CS700 is designed for consolidating multiple large-scale critical applications with aggressive performance demands. It delivers approximately 7x the IOPS of the CS215.
