Nexsan Unveils Next Generation Unity(TM) Systems to Meet Growing Customer Demand

Nexsan™ announced the next generation of Unity, the first and only unified storage system providing both file (NAS) and block services with Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS), n-Way sync, and integrated secure active archiving. The new Unity systems offer up to 40% performance improvement over similar previous models, more flexible configurations, and reduce costs by more than a third. New all-flash configurations are now available to meet the demands of customers' high performance applications, as well as hybrid configurations for the more cost conscious. The next generation of Unity has been completely re-designed to improve performance and management, increase flexibility, decrease costs, and launch all-flash models. The latest Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 v4 Family and increased memory allow for more IOPs, lower latency, and power to expand and deliver performance up to 40% over previous similarly configured systems. Additional ports, connectivity options, and the support of SMB 3.0 provides greater configuration flexibility. Because of the new designs, the new hybrid models in similar configurations are up to a third less expensive, delivering significant savings. With this release, Unity is now available in all-flash all-inclusive unified storage configurations that provide the performance to meet the most demanding application needs. With included advanced data reduction technologies used to optimize SSDs, organizations can see an effective usable price of $1 per GB or less. The all-flash configurations support 1.92TB, 3.84TB, and 7.68TB SSDs and are supported on every Unity model with up to nine enclosures in the maximum configuration. Hybrid configurations that mix DRAM and SSD for caching with HDDs are also available, and can scale up to 5PB of capacity.
