THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 5, 2011) - Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of disk-based storage systems, today announced certification of its E-Series™ storage systems with CommVault® Simpana® 9. The market-leading enterprise data and information management software combined with the latest generation of Nexsan storage helps businesses manage increasingly larger amounts of data for compliant, high performance data protection, archiving and storage management.

As information growth continues unabated, organizations are challenged with containing the influx of this data and maintaining an efficient and effective IT environment.

CommVault Simpana 9, in conjunction with E-Series storage systems, provides modern data management through a tightly integrated blend of replication and persistent copies that are secure, deduplicated, managed, and accessible through a single, unified platform.

E-Series storage systems are purpose-built to provide easy, efficient, enterprise-class storage in a single high-performance solution. They feature robust centralized storage management software for simplified deployment, management and support and offer a complete range of enterprise-class features that deliver industry-leading density, exceptional reliability and low power consumption. The E-Series delivers an easy and quick out-of-the-box experience by integrating reliable Nexsan storage hardware and advanced storage intelligence.

Key features of E-Series storage systems include:

  • High Performance: E-Series systems support a mix of SSD/SAS/SATA drives, allow 10GbE connectivity and feature two RAID engines per controller for fast sequential and random I/O performance.
  • High Capacity and Density: the Nexsan E18 provides up to 54TB in 2U and the E60 offers the option to extend the storage capacity of its 4U E60 up to 180TB.
  • Virtualization Support: E-Series storage systems are VMware, Hyper-V, and Xen certified with production-proven performance in virtualized environments.
