Reliable High Density Storage Arrays Turbocharged for High Performance
The Nexsan E18 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 324TB (with 6TB NL-SAS drives) of capacity in just 6U (each array is a mere 2U, supporting 18 drives) and now offers 400% more memory and 50% increased CPU speed over the E-SeriesTM.
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.
- 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 (10GbE and 1GbE)
- 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 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. For more information, download the Snapshot & Replication data sheet.
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.
