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 VT systems.
The new E-Series V is available now in a variety of storage configurations:
- E-Series V model: E60VT (60 drives in 4U, up to 240 TB)
- E-Series V model: E48VT (48 drives in 4U, up to 192 TB)
- E-Series V model: E18VT (18 drives in 2U, up to 72 TB)
