Nexsan, a StorCentric Company, has announced the launch of its Unity Third Generation 3300 and 7900 enterprise class unified storage – claimed to be the industry’s most powerful platform for mixed workloads. The new offering provides ‘a powerful new range of features, including Unbreakable Backup, which protects backups in the event of a ransomware attack, and the Data Migration and Cloud Connector Modules that enable enterprise users to move data as needed for tiered storage and optimized hybrid cloud infrastructures’.
Unity is a high availability solution designed specifically for enterprises, with the 3300 and 7900 offering flexible hybrid and all-flash configurations for simplified expansion, delivering core enterprise features in a single platform. Unity meets the needs of critical business applications, with the new platform providing significant capacity increases in both HDD and SSD configurations and up to a 50 percent performance increase over the Second Generation Unity. Unity storage is deployed in the most demanding SAN and NAS enterprise environments from financial institutions, television and movie production companies, to hospitals and national research labs. Unity supports applications ranging from backup, virtualization and databases, to file sharing, video editing and more.
The advanced Unity architecture seamlessly operates with the Assureon active data vault providing customers the peace of mind that their data is protected for regulatory compliance and from security breaches including ransomware. As malware is now also targeting backups, Unity with Assureon delivers an immutable Unbreakable Backup solution so organizations never have to worry about the ability to recover. Unity is certified as a Veeam Ready Repository v10 and has been used in many other backup environments, including Commvault.
