Imation's new Nexsan E-Series V storage array product line features performance enhancements and increased memory.
The Nexsan E-Series V storage arrays enable organizations to
deploy 240 terabytes of capacity in 4U while consuming less
than one-third the power in one-third of the rack space of
typical arrays. Users of E-Series V systems can engage Nexsan
AutoMAID disk management capabilities to reduce power
consumption by up to 87 percent, Imation claims.
Use cases include affordable enterprise-level Fibre Channel
and/or iSCSI SAN storage; direct-attached storage (DAS) for big
data bulk storage; and as a building block for the scalable
back-end storage infrastructure of Nexsan NST unified hybrid
storage and Nexsan Assureon archive storage solutions.
Organizations deploying E-Series V systems are able to mix and
match capacity-optimized HDD, performance-optimized HDD and SSD
to accommodate applications based on performance or capacity
needs. Further, all E-Series V solutions are managed through a
centralized console for a "single-pane-of-glass" view that
simplifies storage management. Reliability is further enhanced
with an anti-vibration design that eliminates disk vibrations,
and Cool Drive Technology for better temperature control.
Redundant active components and Active Drawer Technology also
enable system service without downtime to boost availability of
E-Series V solutions.
E-Series V features an advanced controller design, including a
dedicated hardware engine that accelerates RAID parity
generation and doubles the sequential write performance over
the prior generation E-Series systems. E-Series V models with
the "turbocharged" advanced controller will be sold as E-Series
