It's small foot print and scalable architecture allows for the ease of future expansion to fulfill the ever increasing demand for capacity and performance.

                                                                                                                                                                                            The NST6000MC offers support for iSCSI, CIFS, NFSv3, NFSv4, SMBv1 and FTP through multiple 10GbE or 1GbE frontend host connections. With Synchronous Replication the NST6000MC is an Active/Active cluster, each node is continually mirroring each other's Shares and LUNs providing High Availability and Disaster Recovery with Automatic Failover and Multipathing. Other features include, integration with VMware SRM (Site Recovery Manager) and snapshot capabilities.

                                                                                                                                                                                            The FASTier technology allows you to implement up to 24 SLC and/or eMLC SSD drives to provide caching for your business critical applications giving the underlying SAS and/or SATA disk a boost in performance, therefore resulting in a lower cost per I/O.

The NST6000 is built up of 4 units, 2 x controllers (2U each) and 2 x Vault Protection Modules (1U each), totalling 6U of rack space. With the Active/Active controllers linked with a high-speed connection, you can see up to an incredible 700,000 IOps performance.

                                                                                                                                                                                            The NST6000 includes up to 192GB of DRAM cache (per controller) and up to 24 SLC or eMLC SSD drives (up to 9.2TB) for FASTier, boosting the performance of the underlying SATA and/or SAS storage. There are many host connectivity options available including 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10GbE or 1GbE for use with iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, SMB and FTP.

                                                                                                                                                                                            The underlying storage can be made up of either the very popular E-Series arrays or the NST224X expansion chassis. The E-Series can offer up to 240TB of SATA or 72TB of SAS per system. The NST224X supports 24 2.5" SAS drives, with up to 259TB of SAS or 168TB of SSD per system.

The NST5000 has dual controllers for redundancy and High Availability, and also includes Nexsan's FASTier technology for I/O caching.

                                                                                                                                                                                            Nexsan offers three types of each system controller; NSTXX10 is NAS only, NSTXX20 is iSCSI only and NSTXX30 is both. The NST5000 includes up to 96GB of DRAM cache (per controller) and up to 6.2TB of FASTier cache, boosting the performance of the underlying SATA and/or SAS storage. With 10GbE and 1GbE options the NST5000 can support iSCSI, NFS and CIFS Shares.

                                                                                                                                                                                            The underlying storage can be made up of either the very popular E-Series arrays or the NST224X expansion chassis. The E-Series can offer up to 240TB of SATA or 72TB of SAS per system. The NST224X supports 24 2.5" SAS drives, with up to 259TB of SAS or 168TB of SSD per system.
