Nexsan to Present on Hybrid Storage During VMware User Group (VMUG) User Conferences

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 11, 2012) - Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of data storage systems, today announced its participation in VMware User Group (VMUG) Conferences throughout the summer of 2012. Beginning on June 18th at the Seattle VMUG Conference, Nexsan will demonstrate the performance, capacity and pricing advantages of Hybrid Storage systems in today's virtualized computing environments.

With mission-critical business applications deployed in VMware-powered infrastructure, IT professionals are finding increasing storage system demands for performance to address the high levels of random I/O. Traditional storage simply cannot keep up with these dramatically increasing performance requirements and pure SSD-based storage systems are limited by small capacities and high price points. In comparison, the Nexsan NST5000™ Hybrid Storage systems deliver up to ten times the performance of traditional storage, without the capacity limitations and the high price tag of SSD-only solutions.

Nexsan Hybrid Storage systems with FASTier™ intelligently optimize caching by utilizing DRAM and flash-based solid state memory, along with spinning media, to multiply real-world random I/O performance. The systems deliver true unified high performance block and file data, sending both types of traffic through the NST5000 high-end solid-state based controllers. The results are high performance for sequential and random I/O, significant speed gains for SATA and SAS, RAID protection, fully integrated data management and protection.

Nexsan will present the advantages of Hybrid Storage in the VMUG Conferences over the next several months throughout North America. Locations and dates include:

  • Seattle, WA, June 18, 2012
  • Minneapolis, MN, June 21, 2012
  • Salt Lake City, UT, July 10, 2012
  • Indianapolis, IN, July 26, 2012
  • Chicago, IL, September 27, 2012

At each VMUG event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn best practices in deploying Hybrid Storage in computing infrastructure built on VMware and gain from strategies for building more efficient and productive IT operations. Interested parties can register for these events at or email

"We have solved the performance, capacity and pricing challenges of spinning disk storage for virtual environments. When data rich primary applications require low latency, high IOPS storage, FASTier accelerates the performance of both SATA and SAS disks to meet the most demanding requirements while maintaining exceptional capacity and affordability," said Victoria Grey, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Nexsan. "Nexsan Hybrid Storage systems deliver the right mix of technologies in an easy-to-manage, feature-rich and highly scalable package for growing enterprises."
