Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


The partnership blends technology in Nexsan's E5000 Series NAS family with solid-state drive technology from Toshiba.

Nexsan, a provider of disk-based storage systems, and Toshiba, a specialist in the development, design and manufacturing of storage solutions, partnered to boost the performance of network-attached storage in virtualized operating environments, with the aim of providing improved file access. The partnership blends the technology in Nexsan's E5000 Series NAS family with solid-state drive technology from Toshiba.

Both the E5110 and E5310 are available through Nexsan's network of authorized channel partners, with pricing that starts at $14,974.

The inability of traditional NAS solutions to accommodate demanding I/O requirements in today's virtual infrastructure, including VMware, Citrix and Xen, requires a high-performance tier of storage to accelerate throughput, the companies said in a joint statement. FasTier is a Nexsan feature in the E5000 Series of NAS products that leverages multiple tiers of SSD technology to accelerate storage system performance with nearline-SAS, SATA or SAS drives, which the company said is ideal for virtualized operating environments and random I/O workloads. To power FasTier, Nexsan has selected Toshiba MKz001GZB Series SLC NAND/SAS SSDs for advantages in performance and reliability.

Engineered to deliver performance, endurance and reliability for business-critical applications, Toshiba MK-Series SSDs are 0.5-inch small-form-factor SSDs that utilize 32nm enterprise-grade SLC NAND flash memory and a 6G-bps SAS interface. Toshiba delivers performance with random sustained 90,000 read and 16,400 write IOPS and sequential sustained 500MB/s read and 250MB/s write throughput. Combined with a low power requirement of only 6.5 watts at operation, Toshiba also delivers a power efficiency rating of 13,800 IOPS/watt.

"Nexsan and Toshiba have come together to provide up to a 5X increase in NAS file access time as part of an easy-to-use and highly efficient NAS product line," said Victoria Grey, senior vice president of marketing for Nexsan. "This is particularly important to midmarket IT environments with high I/O performance requirements. With solid-state technology from Toshiba, FasTier automatically optimizes files to ensure rapid and reliable access to data when needed."
