Nexsan has announced the next generation of Unity, a 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.
Available via channel partners, the Unity systems offer up to 40 percent performance improvement over similar previous models, the company said, more flexible configurations, and can reduce costs by more than a third. New all-flash configurations are available as well as hybrid configurations for the more cost conscious.Hybrid configurations that mix DRAM and SSD for caching with HDDs are also available, and can scale up to 5PB of capacity
“We were an early adopter of Nexsan Unity and are now one of Nexsan’s largest customers, using it for many critical city services including video systems for public safety and video surveillance at the airport,” said Rick Barnds, senior IT manager for the City of San Antonio. “Price, reliability, performance…..you get to pick two with most other storage providers. Nexsan Unity strikes a careful balance between price and performance along with reliability, a tremendous value.”
“Based on customer demand we knew that a unified system was going to be of interest to the market, but we didn’t realize how quickly it was going to be installed and deployed, and across so many vertical markets,” said Geoff Barrall, COO, Nexsan. “We’re committed to finding ways to offer our customers and partners even more, and so we invested in a complete upgrade, including the delivery of all-flash configurations.”
Unity was launched in April 2016, as an all-inclusive unified storage system featuring enterprise file sync-and-share for anytime, anywhere access to corporate data, n-Way sync for improved data collaboration, and Unity Active Archive for an integrated secure archive. The company recently announced that it has more than 100 systems deployed.
