Nexsan, a provider of unified storage solutions, has released Nexsan UNITY, a next-generation storage platform that combines the performance and scalability of DRAM and flash along with private cloud file system synchronization and data mobility support.

UNITY offers a full enterprise-class feature set for small, midsize, and large businesses. The unified platform supports Fibre Channel and iSCSI connectivity in addition to NAS and SAN protocols. The Nexsan UNITY family scales from 13TB up to 5PB. Nexsan UNITY matches flexible, performance datacenter storage with the private cloud technology behind Nexsan's Transporter family of private cloud file sync and share appliances. Transporter is an on-premises solution that uses a peer-to-peer approach to enable secure remote access to primary storage from anywhere on any device.

Additionally, UNITY includes enterprise n-Way Sync functionality, enabling the solution to deliver high performance unified storage with site-to-site enterprise synchronization. According to the company, enterprise sync is supported across distributed primary storage at LAN access speeds, improving user productivity while utilizing an organization's secure infrastructure, leveraging Active Directory and access controls to prevent unauthorized user file access. This allows data to be in sync across multiple sites and locations while securing content with encryption at rest and in flight with self-encrypting drives and encryption keys.

"Today's NAS and SAN storage solutions have ignored the need for secure access to protected data maintained within the enterprise," says Bob Fernander, CEO, Nexsan. "With Nexsan UNITY we're providing a means to extend primary storage across and outside the enterprise in a secure manner. We've combined the power and performance of our Nexsan unified storage platform with the cloud flexibility of our Transporter private cloud file sync and share appliances. The result is a unified storage solution like no other - providing simplified file sharing, secure data access, and comprehensive data storage for the datacenter."

Nexsan UNITY is available now with pricing starting at $45,000 MSRP. For more information, visit http://www.nexsan.com/products/unified-storage-enterprise-sync.
