Reduce Cost of Backup Infrastructure with High-Density Energy-Smart Storage

imation NEXSAN" by imation Reduce cost of infrastructure with High-density Energy-smart storage Ballooning data growth and ever shrinking IT budgets 3 push higher-density disk arrays to the forefront for organizations contemplating investment in new backup solutions. The promise of more backup capacity and performance in less data center real estate sounds irresistible to anyone 8. seeking greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness from their existing IT infrastructure. From 2013 to 2020, the digital universe will grow by a factor of 10. from 4.4 trillion gigabytes to 44 trillion it more than doubles every two years. Designing and building efficient, reliable storage arrays that can be packed far more tightly with disk drives is as straightforward O MECHANICAL4 POWER/ & ELECTRICAL CHALLENGES DENSITY PARADOX EXCESSIVE POWER CONSUMPTION LABORIOUS DISK REPLACEMENT HIGH TEMPERATURES VIBRATION 40% 20% About Less than of the information in the digital universe required some type of data protection. of the digital universe actually had these protections. Nexsan E-Series High-Density Backup Done Right Smarter Energy Savings AutoMAID® disks have five power management states: AutoMAID® Level 1 Parks the heads and powers them down by policy or command. However, the actual drive continues to spin at full speed. If a request for an 1/0 is received, the heads simply wake up and load data with under 1-second response times and remain at full speed for every subsequent I/0 request. The overall energy savings in level 1 is approximately 15 to 20 percent. 1 15-20% energy savings AutoMAID® Level 2 Parks the heads and slows the rotation speed of the disk from 7,200rpm to 4,000rpm. If a request for an 1/0 is received, the drive cycles up to full speed and loads the heads resulting in up to 15-second response times. The disk remains at full speed for every subsequent I/0 request. The overall energy savings in level 2 is approximately 40 percent. 2 40% energy savings AutoMAID® Level 3 Parks the heads and turns the drive motor off. If an I/0 request is received, the drive spins up and loads the heads resulting in up to 30-second response times. The disk remains at full speed for every subsequent I/0 request. The overall energy savings in level 3 is approximately 60 percent. 3 60% energy savings AutoMAID® Level 4 Parks the heads and stops the drive electronics. If an I/0 is received, the electronics power on and the drive spins up and loads the heads resulting in up to 45-second response times. The disk remains at full speed for every subsequent I/0 request. The overall energy savings in level 4 is approximately 85 percent. 4 85% energy savings AutoMAID® Level 5 Turns off the expansion enclosure. If an 1/0 is received, the enclosure powers on and the drives spin up resulting in up to 46-second response times. The disk remains at full speed for every subsequent 1/0 request. The overall energy savings in level 5 is approximately 87 percent. 87% energy savings Additional benefits Easier System Comprehensive Anti-Vibration Superior Disk Drive Reliability Advanced Maintenance COOLING Features IDC projects that nearly IDC expects capacity growth for disk-based data protection and reco- very hardware will increase by a OF THE TOTAL 25% REVENUE 21.9%CAGR in the worldwide disk system market will be used for totaling 15.1EB (exabytes) at the disk-based data protection close of 2017. and recovery. 24/7 Nexsan E-Series high-density arrays have been specifically designed to address challenges with power consumption, heat, vibration and other issues that are inherent in such solutions.
