NEXterminal XENovo storage appliance

powered by NEXenta software

NEXTsystem introduces 4 new storage appliances to support the ever growing storage needs. The new Appliances scale from 2.4TB to more then 100TB. It is no big secret that to manage and backup  storage  gets more and more complicated.  Many storage providers have solutions for this, but many vendors demand that you buy all peripherals from them, often at a higher price than market price for similar units. NEXTsystem has now lowered the economical  bar. With the new  XENovo series we introduce enterprise storage for a reasonable cost compared to most offerings in the market place. And you can buy peripherals whereever you want. With XENovo we offer a price/performance leading storage solution to the market.

So, briefly what do we offer?

  • Writable clones
  • Synchronous deduplication
  • Synchronous compression
  • Second generation ARC cache , Adaptive replacement cache
  • Unlimited file size, unlimited directories , unlimited space
  • Highest storage reliability with end to end check summing (CPU to media)
  • SSD accelerated storage  random reads with a Level 2 SSD cache  L2ARC (  easy 100.000 IOPS or more )
  • SSD accelerated synchronous small random writes( up to 100.000 IOPS ) ( Vmware nfs love this )
  • file replication (ZFS send/receive)  and Auto Tier (rsync)
  • RAIDZ , RAIDZ2 , RAIDZ3 and 2,3 and 4way mirror for maximum security
  • Highly advanced IO scheduler that survives any kind of load and keeps system responsive

  • “VMDC”is a Virtual Machine data Center, a central management for virtualization
  • “Delorean” , a VSS enabled backup program for you windows server and clients
  • “Storage Link Adapter” makes XENova storage controlled by Citrix StorageLink
  • “Target FC”is a Software which make XENova to act as a Fiber Channel target
  • “HA Cluster” is a complete HA fail over setup for two XENova appliances with shared storage
  • “HA simple and Auto CDP ” is block level copying and fail over with no shared storage
