Welcome to Nexsan Green Storage Blog! This new public blog supplements our website and our reseller-only portal. Here, we plan to post information and commentary on products, information and our experiences related to energy efficient and green storage.
For those of you who don’t know us, Nexsan Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1999 in the UK and today delivers secure storage appliances and modular, high capacity disk storage systems for a broad range of applications including fixed content storage and archiving, compliance and litigation support, primary storage, disk-based backup, digital video security, medical imaging, email and rich media. We sell our products through value added resellers, or VARs, original equipment manufacturing partners, or OEMs, and system integrators. We are focused on Small and Medium Enterprises, or SMEs, that face the same challenges of storing growing volumes of data and managing it over longer periods of time, yet have limited access to new technologies and high-end solutions, many of which have been priced or designed beyond their means. Besides SMEs, we have also installed our systems in large global enterprises around the world.
Nexsan pioneered the concept of “enterprise ATA”, that is, the idea that with enough clever hardware and software, we could make an enterprise-class storage solution using large numbers of inexpensive ATA disk drives. A few years ago we delivered one of the first energy efficient disk storage systems with our Automatic Massive Array of Idle Disks, or AutoMAID technology incorporating it into our SATA storage systems. This technology differed from other ‘green’ technologies in that it reduced power consumption without sacrificing application performance – a unique capability even today. In the same period, Nexsan introduced one of the first storage systems focused on the long term use of data with Assureon. Assureon leverages the SATABeast’s high density and energy efficiency technologies and incorporates innovative Content Addressable Storage (CAS), WORM (Write Once Read Many), de-duplication, clustering, replication and encryption software allowing customers to easily search, manage, protect and use their data long term.
