Nexsan UNITY Recognized as a "Cool Product" by Computer Technology Review

Unified Data Storage Platform Recognized for Innovative Approach to Enabling Accelerated Business Performance and Secure Mobile Access

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 1, 2016) - Nexsan™, the global leader in unified storage solutions, today announced that its UNITY™ unified data storage platform has been named a "Cool Product" by the editors at Computer Technology Review (CTR). UNITY, the first and only enterprise-class unified storage solution with built-in private cloud capabilities, was recognized for its unique ability to accelerate business performance and ensure secure mobile access. 

"With UNITY, it's clear that Nexsan recognizes that the name of the game is not 'speeds and feeds,'" said Kim Kay, Associate Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, Computer Technology Review. "Topping the list of cool capabilities is UNITY's patented n-WAY Sync functionality that allows its users to securely access and share large files across distributed sites at high performance LAN speeds. If your business needs to securely share large files across various teams distributed across various geographies -- with the speed and ease of a public cloud service -- we suggest you check out Nexsan's UNITY."

UNITY is a scalable, flexible NAS device that allows IT to mix-and-match high-performance flash with inexpensive hard disks and mix block storage for VMware, databases or Exchange with file storage for home directories and sharing. It stands out by including a full private cloud infrastructure at no additional cost. Instead of spending on complex, expensive third-party products to share across sites, UNITY includes a plug-and-play ability to sync files across any number of disparate locations with secure communication across standard Internet connections the easiest way to ensure high availability (HA) across locations and high-speed access to large files. It also helps to alleviate the risk of unsanctioned business user adoption of various public cloud-sharing services, by delivering absolutely identical functionality and convenience, yet fully under the control and protection of corporate IT.

"As today's businesses continue to seek ways to accelerate workforce productivity and enable collaboration for their distributed environments, it's more critical than ever to employ storage resources that securely power large file sharing with enterprise class performance, security and protection," said Victoria Grey, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), Nexsan. "This is what Nexsan has achieved with UNITY. It's the first data storage platform to unify enterprise class performance, features and functionality together with secure private cloud file sync and share capabilities -- at no extra cost -- for the future-focused storage that distributed businesses require. We're very pleased it's been recognized as a 'Cool Product' by Computer Technology Review."
