Nexsan Energy Efficient SAN Solutions

Solutions for Energy Savings

Nexsan's storage and archiving solutions deliver energy savings innovation that will greatly cut power and cooling costs without sacrificing performance including:

  • Evolutionary AutoMAID (Automatic Massive Array of Idle Disks) energy saving technology - the first to market implementation of MAID 2.0
  • High capacity storage that not only reduces power and cooling requirements, but frees up valuable rack space

Storage Arrays

At no additional cost, Nexsan storage arrays come standard with AutoMAID and all our other energy saving features.

  • SATABeast: With up to 42TB in 4U and enterprise class performance, reliability and management, SATABeast offers energy efficiency for secondary, online archive, and nearline storage applications
  • SATABeast Xi: Designed for the Xserve and Mac Pro systems, SATABeast Xi delivers the same power and cooling savings as SATABeast
  • SATABoy: The highly scalable SATABoy enables energy efficient storage of large amounts of information online
  • SASBoy: Just released, Fibre Channel or iSCSI connectivity

Archiving

Built upon our award-winning storage arrays, Nexsan archiving solutions benefit from the same energy saving technologies like AutoMAID.

  • Assureon: An intelligent and secure archive appliance, Assureon offers storage for long term retention and management of fixed content information

AutoMAID™ Energy Saving Technology

Nexsan's evolutionary AutoMAID (Automatic Massive Array of Idle Disks) energy saving technology transparently places disk drives into an idle state to vastly reduce power and cooling costs. AutoMAID delivers the cost-effecdtive benefits of MAID 2.0 without the limitations of slow access times and special host software.

AutoMAID is granular to an individual drive or RAID set and offers multiple levels of energy savings. AutoMAID is user selectable enabling users to determine the right level of response time performance to energy savings. AutoMAID is the first MAID 2.0 architecture that supports VTL, full file format D2D and standard high performance RAID implementations.

Key Points

  • AutoMAID reduces power and cooling costs
  • Nexsan’s AutoMAID delivers the benefits of MAID without the limitations
  • Available on Nexsan Assureon, SATABoy, SATABeast, and SATABeast Xi

Nexsan SASBoy AutoMAID Energy Efficient Savings

AutoMAID Defined

  • AutoMAID automatically reduces power consumption and heat generation on idle drives
  • Trade-off between response times and power savings are user configurable
  • AutoMAID behavior happens automatically and transparently to host - no software changes required
  • Typical configuration settings:
    • Level 1: Heads Unloaded
      • 15% to 20% savings
      • Sub-second recovery time
    • Level 2: Heads Unloaded, slows to 4000 RPM
      • 35% to 45% savings
      • 15 second recovery time
    • Level 3: Stops spinning (sleep mode; powered on)
      • 60% to 70% savings
      • 30 to 45 second recovery time

AutoMAID Safety Features

  • In maximum power saving mode, drive spin up is sequenced to reduce power surges
  • Drives automatically wake up for periodic surface scan to ensure data integrity (user configurable)
  • AutoMAID has no impact on performance if left on in data-intensive server applications
  • Only two simple configuration settings - "timeout" and "power savings desired"
