Nexsan Corporation is a leading provider of next generation energy efficient disk-based storage systems designed for the long-term storage of digital information. Their hardware and software systems are ideal for storing and archiving information commonly referred to as "fixed content", since it typically changes little over time. This includes medical images, email, business documents, video images, research data, and digital media of all types. Their solutions enable organizations to store and access growing amounts of fixed content over longer periods of time, while meeting evolving business and compliance requirements in a "green" environment.
With a history of both hardware and software innovation, and with many market "firsts" to its credit, Nexsan is recognized as a pioneer of reliable disk-based storage technologies optimized for capacity, energy efficiency and cost. Through their adoption and refinement of RAID, ATA and SATA disk technologies coupled with their own innovations in de-duplications, secure archiving software, and storage encryption, their products have dramatically reshaped the economics of disk-based storage. Nexsan now offers enterprise-class storage at price points up to 1/10th the cost of traditional disk-based storage solutions. Their products are the first to offer or AutoMAID (Automatic Massive Array of Idle Disks), a policy-based intelligent "green" energy saving technology. AutoMAID epitomizes the MAID 2.0 concept in which power consumption is dramatically reduced without sacrificing performance.
Since its founding in 1999, Nexsan has sold its products exclusively through a select, global network of VARs, OEMs, and system integrators and have deployed over 21,000 systems to more than 60 countries. They have installed their systems in small and medium-sized enterprises as well as large global enterprises around the world.
The Internet has changed. It's no longer just about Web and email traffic. Instead it's dominated by Web 2.0 applications such as IM, P2P, social networking, voice, and video. Today, these applications are pervasive in the enterprise, brought in by a new generation of employees.
