Product Details

Imation's NexsanTM NST4000 expands the availability of fault-tolerant FASTierTM DRAM caching with both Fibre Channel and iSCSI connectivity, and puts them in reach of mid-range businesses.

The Nexsan NST4000 is a modern hybrid storage appliance, a more efficient, agile and intelligent alternative to traditional storage arrays, filers, and all-flash arrays. Organizations have different needs for performance, capacity and connectivity when managing and protecting the data that drives your business. The NST4000 blends solid-state technology, a highly scalable back-end storage infrastructure, multiple NAS/iSCSI/FC front-end connections, and enterprise-class data management services in a single system. It gives you the convenience and control to meet the needs of one or more workloads in one dedicated easy-to-use appliance.

For organizations struggling to meet both high performance and high capacity NAS, FC or iSCSI application requirements, the NST 4000 makes that easy with a hybrid of solid-state accelerated hard drives. For applications with the most stringent workload requirements like server virtualization, desktop virtualization (VDI), databases and cloud computing, the NST4000 delivers unparalleled performance to ensure application demands never outpace available I/O again. Your applications will have never performed faster on a system operating at the economics of spinning disk storage.
