EFFICIENT

FASTier – Intelligent, self-tuning hybrid caching capability that uses a scalable pool of cache memory comprised of flash technologies to create a more efficient hybrid storage solution. Flash SSD technology is used to accelerate read and write IOPS and throughput. FASTier caching works transparently so there is no administration burden to turbo-charge I/O performance and handle the constant growth of mixed applications in your environment. FASTier caching is especially useful for random I/O workloads such as databases or for VMware, Xen or Hyper-V environments.

Inline Compression – As data is written, NST compresses data prior to it being written to the RAID volume. This reduces the amount of data written to SSD cache or HDD storage media, and, in-turn shrinks the total storage capacity requirements, datacenter footprint and improves storage system performance. NST Inline Compression can be set on a per volume basis and is transparent operation.

FLEXIBLE

NST series scales capacity and performance.

  • Capacity is scaled by adding an additional NST storage module. NST storage modules come in different form factors to address different organizational needs.
  • FASTier – Caching is NST’s intelligent, self-tuning hybrid caching capability that uses a scalable pool of cache memory comprised of  flash technologies to create a more efficient hybrid storage solution. FASTier provides increased performance for mixed application workload environments over traditional caching techniques.

Unified – In a single solution, NST series provide CIFS, NFS and FTP file sharing protocols for enterprise NAS file sharing as well as the FC and iSCSI SAN block storage protocol for server volume sharing.

AVAILABLE

High Availability – NST series include redundant controllers, data paths, storage module controllers and power supplies to keep your applications and users productive. User selected RAID protection levels include 10, 5 and 6. Cache protection options ensure that your data is safe even if the power goes out.

Business Continuity –

  • Asynchronous Replication – NST series also provides the ability for you to replicate your most mission and business critical data to another system across an IP network that is geographically dispersed making your data available to you in the event you need to recover from a site disaster.
