Tackles your toughest storage challenges
You want to give your users the right tool for each job. As your storage grows, so have your processing requirements. That’s why we’ve doubled the performance of the Nexsan E-Series with E-Series P.
E-Series Storage Arrays fit the bill for diverse capacity and performance based applications like media & entertainment, surveillance, government, healthcare,financial, and backup. It’s the ultimate ultra-reliable storage array for affordable enterprise-level Fibre Channel, SAS, and iSCSI storage.
Tough storage that’s built to last
E-Series is tough for challenging storage environments outside of the data center like ships, subway stations, and storage closets that have less than ideal temperatures and vibration. Nexsan leverages an innovative design with Cool-Drive Technology and Anti-Vibration Design to significantly reduce heat and vibration in the unit.
Extensive stress testing of both drives and systems prior to shipping means increased field reliability and uptime. It’s what gives us a strong 18 year track record of enterprise reliability.
High availability means peace of mind
E-Series P helps you fight data downtime. Active Drawer Technology lets you pull a single drawer for drive replacement while keeping your data available. In case of a drive failure, a spare drive is automatically rebuilt into the RAID set. SNMP Alerts or email notifications are sent in the event of a component failure. Dual redundant, hot swappable components, multipathing and an intelligent battery-backed and mirrored flash cache of 36GB per controller help up your uptime.
Do more with less power
E-Series P uses less than one-third the power of typical arrays. Nexsan AutoMAID makes it easy to go green and not sacrifice performance. Simply choose your energy savings with our easy to use management interface. AutoMAID will reduce power consumption by up to 87 percent and cut operating expenses plus extend the life of the system.
Protect your data at rest
E-Series P can be configured with self-encrypting drives (SED) with AES-256 encryption so you know your data at rest is protected. Meet regulatory and compliance needs with FIPS SED support. Nexsan’s management interface transparently manages the encryption/ decryption process without compromising performance.
DELIVER THE SPEEDS YOU NEED – The battle-tested E-Series is now high performance too. E-Series P more than doubles the throughput to process heavy workloads with demanding applications.
