NEXSAN NST2000 UNIFIED STORAGE WITH FIBRE OPTION
A truly efficient storage solution for the SMB market. As you will see below the NST2000 comes in a number of flavors with the ability to grow with ease.
Select Fibre or iSCSI Connectivity (A or B)
- NST2000 unified (NAS, SAN) storage systems all contain dual controllers, four quad-core processors, 96GB RAM, and four Fibre Channel ports for host connectivity per system. Includes core operating system, Data Protection Package and E-Centre management platform software licenses. Supports up to one external storage expansion unit with similar performance characteristics.
- NST2000 unified (NAS, SAN) storage systems all contain dual controllers, four quad-core processors, 96GB RAM, and optional four 10GgE or four/eight 1GbE ports for host connectivity. Includes core operating system, Data Protection Package and E-Centre management platform software licenses. Supports up to one external storage expansion unit with similar performance characteristics
Now select Capacity Required – two options available:
- Performance Optimized
- Capacity Optimized
All systems come standard with:
- FASTier® – Intelligent, self-tuning hybrid caching capability that uses a scalable pool of cache memory comprised of flash technologies to create a more efficient hybrid storage solution. Flash SSD technology is used to accelerate read and write IOPS and throughput. FASTier caching works transparently so there is no administration burden to turbo-charge I/O performance and handle the constant growth of mixed applications in your environment. FASTier caching is especially useful for random I/O workloads such as databases or for VMware, Xen or Hyper-V environments.
- Inline Compression – As data is written, NST compresses data prior to it being written to the RAID volume. This reduces the amount of data written to SSD cache or HDD storage media, and, in-turn shrinks the total storage capacity requirements, datacenter footprint and improves storage system performance. NST Inline Compression can be set on a per volume basis and is transparent operation.
Nexsan’s NST’s FASTier hybrid caching accelerates performance while the unified protocol enables mixed applications. The NST2000 delivers a full enterprise-class feature set for your mid-size data center storage.
