Part of the Nexsan NST6000 Unified Hybrid Storage portfolio shown at
VMworld Barcelona, the NST6000MC uses Fibre Channel direct or switched
connections, including DWDM and dark fiber to synchronously mirror
copies of data to different sites, providing instant data replication
and failover to sites on campus or up to 10km away
“Since we launched our stretched cluster solution in August, we’ve seen increasing demand from customers who place a premium on avoiding downtime and having synchronous mirrored storage at two sites. Our customers are focused on business continuity solutions that are easy to manage, maintain, install and scale,” said
For example, a leading security manufacturer is deploying multiple NST6000MC Metro Storage Clusters to support security operations at several airports, an application that requires high storage scalability and 24/7 uptime.In addition,customers in industries as diverse as finance, healthcare, utilities and manufacturing are showing high interest in the NST6000MC Metro Storage Cluster to ensure uptime for databases, virtualized servers and business applications.
The NST6000MC Metro Storage Cluster is a compact, scalable, integrated solution for high availability and disaster recovery that extends data replication and failover capability from within a data center to a campus site or to a metro site located up to 10km away. As part of the NST6000 Unified Hybrid Storage platform, the NST60000MC supports both SAN and NAS protocols, while leveraging solid-state storage to accelerate read performance of the underlying spinning disk drives housed in efficient Fibre Channel-connected Nexsan E-Series™ storage arrays. The net result is a lower cost-per-I/O and lower total cost of ownership.
