Most organizations need both storage scalability for extreme data growth as well as the performance virtualized applications demand to protect against I/O bottlenecks. Data centers within these organizations looking to scale capacity without sacrificing performance find the Nexsan NST6500s unified hybrid storage system a compelling solution.

The new Nexsan NST6500 along with NestOS 3.0 is highly scalable unified storage solution in a compact footprint that uses a caching technology called FASTier® to accelerate reads and writes I/O requests. FASTier intelligently and automatically moves data through solid-state and spinning disk to speed your virtual and cloud environments.

Built with the time-constrained IT administrator in mind, a revolutionary GUI streamlines setup and management to ease the pain of mid-sized organizations challenged by storage complexity.
