Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Nexsan E-Series Storage Systems for Green Excellence in Product Innovation

The Growth Partnership Company Selects Nexsan for Advancements in Energy Efficient High Capacity Network Storage

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of disk-based storage systems, today announced that it has received Frost & Sullivan's Green Excellence Award for product innovations in energy efficient high capacity network storage systems. The global growth partnership company of 1,800 analysts who monitor more than 300 industries and 250,000 companies chose Nexsan after a series of in-depth interviews and primary market analysis performed earlier this year.

"Rapid adoption of virtualization and cloud computing technologies as well as the real-time explosion of online data has resulted in the need for massive storage systems capable of storing terabytes and petabytes of data," said Charanya Balasubramanian, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "In order to avoid costly infrastructure upgrades driven by requirements that are expected to exceed the total power, space and cooling capacity available within data centers, enterprises are compelled to seek higher density storage solutions that also minimize power consumption."

According to the latest research by Frost & Sullivan, Nexsan's E-Series™ line of storage systems outshine competitors with "a holistic approach to reducing power consumption by tackling cooling, maintenance and performance challenges. The E-Series offers power savings of up to 85% and requires only one-third of the space required by traditional storage solutions. Compatibility with Windows, availability of high-performance dual active controllers and the flexibility to accommodate different storage disks, gives Nexsan the competitive edge over peer solutions."

Nexsan E-Series storage systems deliver exceptional density and energy savings that lower operational costs without sacrificing performance. The systems up the ante over previous generations by delivering the ability to store up to 180TBs in only 4U for more than 45TB per U. The company's high density design innovations minimize the number of energy consuming components and moving parts to greatly improve efficiency and reliability. As a result of Nexsan's AutoMAID® level 4 technology, E-Series storage systems reduce energy costs up to 85%, making this next generation storage platform the most energy-efficient, enterprise-class storage system on the market.

"We are pleased to see our E-Series storage systems receive this recognition for leadership in density and power efficiency," said Victoria Grey, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Nexsan. "With a growing number of servers and storage systems in nearly every data center environment, many IT professionals are confronted with limitations in rack space and power availability. The E-Series addresses power concerns while providing a more reliable and operationally efficient option for cost-conscious organizations. To be recognized for our innovations in this area is certainly an honor."
