Product Details

The Nexsan NST5000 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 NST5000 blends solid-state technology, a highly scalable back-end storage infrastructure, multiple NAS/iSCSI 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 or iSCSI application requirements, the NST 5000 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 NST5000 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.

The NST 5000 is fully featured with snapshots, replication, thin provisioning, replication, compression, and much more. A revolutionary GUI and scriptable CLI streamline setup and management for the time-constrained IT administrator. As with all Imation storage, the Nexsan NST5000 with E-Series disk arrays offers density and power management for the smallest footprint with up to 60 disks in 4U, while consuming 85% less power when idle via AutoMAID® power saving technology. A no single point-of-failure architecture ensures the ultimate in reliability. The net of all this performance and functionality is a true enterprise-class solution without the enterprise-class price.
