New Nexsan NST5000 Increases Storage Capacity


Imation today made available the latest version of its Nexsan NST5000 unified hybrid storage system. The system combines solid-state technologies, disk storage and software.

Designed for small to midsize enterprises, the NST5000 unified hybrid storage system promises to deliver exceptional performance without the capacity limitations and high price points of SSD-only solutions. The NST5000 uses the right amount of solid state cache to deliver the performance users need while controlling storage costs. The system offers a capacity of more than five petabytes along with a streamlined management and administration for larger scale installations and managed service providers - including SNMP support for complex environments, a full command line interface (CLI) for advanced users, and an enhanced GUI that is faster to use.

In addition, the support for VMware vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI) accelerates vSphere server performance by up to 50% - providing hardware acceleration on the NST5000 when integrated into a VMware ESX/ESXi environment.

The latest version of the NST5000 comes in large, medium and small configurations.
