Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0 Sets New Performance and Energy Savings Standards for High Availability Backup and Recovery -- Power-Managed Deduplication Solution Increases Data Ingestion Speeds by 100 Percent

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Nexsan, a leading storage system provider, today announced that it has released the DeDupe SG ("Speed with Green") 2.0 solution.

Nexsan's next generation of energy-efficient file storage systems are designed for data protection and disaster recovery applications that require high-performance deduplication. Integrating the latest version of the FalconStor File-Interface Deduplication System (FDS), the Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0 is the first LAN-based deduplication system to offer high availability. As part of the most recent enhancements, Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0 features support for Symantec's OpenStorage (OST) protocol, which accelerates data ingestion speeds for the increased performance and efficiency that today's mid-sized enterprises need.

The Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0 offers redundant appliances to provide continuous data access and automatic backup application failover, raising the bar for data deduplication solutions. To dramatically increase backup speeds and reduce the complexity of recovery during a disaster, the redundant appliances offer backup server connections of up to 5.4 terabytes per hour and support for Symantec OST.

"Data deduplication technology addresses the issue of burgeoning data growth, which is a key challenge for storage administrators," said Lauren Whitehouse, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "Adoption rates for data deduplication technology are growing because it delivers greater storage efficiency and improves the economics of disk-based backup. This technology should be at the heart of any data management strategy."

The Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0 improves operational efficiency by leveraging the green capabilities inherent in Nexsan's industry-leading AutoMAID technology. This energy-saving technology transparently places disk drives into their most energy-efficient state without affecting backup performance, making DeDupe SG 2.0 systems extremely power efficient.

"Nexsan has a unique capability and one that we believe is a first in the industry: power-managed deduplication," said George Crump, senior analyst at Storage Switzerland. "In the past, because of the deployment strategies of other solutions, all the drives needed to remain active for the deduplication process to work effectively. The Nexsan solution is designed so that the backup can be completed, deduplication cleanup processes performed, and the system be ready to be spun down soon after the backup completes."

New features of the Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0 include:

    - Redundant appliances for high availability
    - Automatic backup application failover
    - Symantec OST support for additional efficiency and performance
    - Support for industry-leading backup software solutions, including NetBackup
    - Replication support for up to 150 remote sites
    - Further automation of storage management processes
    - Optional 10-Gigabit Ethernet connections (continued...)
