Nexsan introduces disk-based archiving for SMBs

Nexsan brings CAS functionality to businesses
Nexsan Technologies announced its Assureon NX Easy Archive Appliance, a disk-based solution for the storage of business-critical information for smaller enterprises, branch offices and departmental groups.

Assureon NX relies on Content Addressable Storage (CAS) technology to protect data integrity and perform file-level de-duplication. Assureon NX’s secure storage architecture ensures the integrity of all archived content through automated integrity checks with self healing functions. It includes other features such as built-in Lifecycle Management functions, immutable file authentication and remote replication across the WAN for disaster recovery purposes. Data availability is assured with RAID 6 protection while WORM disk functionality prevents overwriting of archived files.

Assureon NX is available in standalone or replicated versions and offers a plug-and-play NAS-like interface supporting both CIFS and NFS for simple connectivity to any operating system. Assureon NX can be deployed as an alternative to tape and other offline media, or as a disk-based enhancement to offline archives. 

The Assureon NX Archive Appliance is available through Nexsan’s worldwide channel of resellers.  Pricing starts at US$53,000.
