Nexsan Named in MSPmentor 250 for Cloud-Based Archiving and Disaster Recovery

Assureon® Secure Online Archive Recognized in the Managed Services Space

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of disk-based storage systems, has been named in the MSPmentor 250 for technology and business achievements in the managed services space in 2011. Produced annually by MSPmentor, the MSPmentor 250 showcases those companies that have made an impact in the enablement and delivery of managed services over the past 12 months.

The MSPmentor 250 identifies the world's top managed services experts, entrepreneurs and executives, including professionals who have mastered business leadership, marketing, sales, technology, coaching and other areas within the managed services market. This year's recognition of Nexsan reflects the company's efforts in providing the infrastructure necessary to deploy a managed or cloud-based service offering. Nexsan was specifically chosen for leadership and deployment of its Assureon Secure Online Archive for cloud-based archiving and disaster recovery.

Assureon is an object-based archive storage system ideal for service providers requiring a highly scalable cloud storage platform with superior security, scalability, storage optimization and management functionality in a multi-tenanted environment. Assureon leverages Nexsan's award winning storage systems, delivering industry-leading storage density, power efficiency and reliability in a package built for industries with demanding compliance, regulatory, or disaster recovery requirements. Assureon delivers operational efficiencies unavailable with alternative solutions and provides one of the richest feature sets available for delivering cloud-based archiving services.

"Deployment of the Assureon storage archive has been instrumental in differentiating our services in the areas of email and file archiving," said Tom Urie, Senior Operations Engineer, IPR International, LLC. "With advantages in security, compliance and storage optimization, Assureon has allowed us to better serve customers while providing the most cost-effective option possible."

"With up to 80% of data on primary storage being unstructured, organizations are achieving significant cost savings by moving redundant and repetitive backup data to an Assureon-based archive storage service that moves the data one time and then ensures integrity for the life of that data," said Ed Apy, VP, Worldwide Assureon Sales. "To support our partners, we offer a channel focused business model that puts partners first and allows them to offer this compelling Archive as a Service solution. The expansion of this technology and methodology has made 2011 a phenomenal growth year for the Assureon line of business and we greatly appreciate MSPmentor's recognition of the efforts of Nexsan and our partners to deliver this exciting technology."
