Nexsan’s 18 and 32 drive bay storage arrays have a reputation as being super reliable, fast and easy to expand storage arrays.

The Nexsan E18V supports 3½” disk drives whilst the Nexsan E32V supports 2½” disk drives. maximum capacity at this time, 324TB behind a single controller.

E-Series V features an advanced active/active controller design, including use of a dedicated hardware engine, which accelerates RAID parity generation. The turbocharged E-Series V is ideal for continuous data streaming bulk storage and back-up and recovery applications.

Features Anti-Vibration Design and Cool Drive Technology and uses Active Drawer Technology and redundant hot swappable active components.The Nexsan E Series has a high performance multi RAID engine controller technology along with an energy efficiency that delivers up to 87% reduction in power while lowering your cooling needs.Easy to manage even remotely one or many systems within a single, intuitive GUI.

Flexible connectivity options for Nexsan E18V, (2U in height housing 18 bays, note these controllers are truly Active-Active)

  • Four 16Gb FC and four 1GbE iSCSI connections
  • Four 8Gb FC and four 1GbE iSCSI connections
  • Four 10GbE (SFP+) and four 1GbE iSCSI (RJ45) connections
  • Four 6Gb SAS (4 lanes per interface) and four 1Gb iSCSI connections
  • Eight 1GbE iSCSI connections

Flexible connectivity options for Nexsan E32V, (2U in height housing 32 bays, note these controllers are truly Active-Active)

  • Four 16Gb FC and four 1GbE iSCSI connections
  • Four 8Gb FC and four 1GbE iSCSI connections
  • Four 10GbE (SFP+) and four 1GbE iSCSI (RJ45) connections
  • Four 6Gb SAS (4 lanes per interface) and four 1Gb iSCSI connections

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

An added feature where Fibre and 10GbE are present along with 1GbE iSCSI, should the former connection be lost the system will default to the latter.

Drives Utilized:

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.

  • E18V: NL-SAS 7.2K, SAS 10K, SAS 15K and SSD
  • E32V: SAS 10K and SSD

Future Expansion

  • The E18V can support up to 54 disk 3½ inch drives with the addition of two additional trays below the controller
  • The E32V can support up to 96 2½ inch disk drives with the addition of two additional trays below the controller

Warranty

  • Standard warranty is three years advance exchange, uplifts available.
