Nexsan at VeeamON 2014
Since 2012, Nexan has paired its E-Series SAN storage systems with Veeam's Backup & Replication software as a solution for mid-market data protection within virtualized infrastructures. The Nexsan E-Series is can be used for both primary storage and a backup to disk target for Veeam Backup and Replication v6.
Nexan's Flexible Storage Platform provides an underlying modular architecture that streamlines integration into a wide range of operating systems and virtualized environments. Veeam backup and replication integration is available for both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. Nexsan storage offers easy online-capacity expansion, Active Drawer Technology for uninterrupted I/O when adding drives and an expansion chassis to increase capacity up to 360TB without system disruption.
In addition, Nexsan solutions are designed with the IT generalist in mind and are easy to deploy and configure as your backup storage media. The combination of Veeam Backup & Replication software and Nexsan storage provide simplified data protection in all VMware and Microsoft virtualized environments.
Veeam also features source-based deduplication and compression to reduce storage requirements, allowing for significant hardware savings in backup storage. Agentless-replication features of Veeam Backup & Replication result in no additional licenses to purchase, deploy, manage, monitor or update for even more savings. In addition, users can engage Nexsan AutoMAID disk management capabilities to reduce power consumption by up to 87 percent. This reduces operating expenses and extends the overall life of the system.
