Nexsan SATABoy - 14 bay 3U 28TB SATA RAID Storage with iSCSI/ Fibre Channel Connectivity now available

Nexsan's SATABoy, a member of the Flexible Storage Platform, is a storage system ideally positioned for medium-sized businesses and mid-tier deployments in large organizations. With its storage capacity of 28TB in 14 drive bays, SATABoy's small 3U footprint is targeted at primary and secondary storage applications, as well as long-term bulk and backup applications. SATABoy is Nexsan's most compact storage system, where cost-effective high capacity is paramount–yet IT managers don't require the ultra-high density, scalability and capacity offered by Nexsan's larger SATABeast.

By employing SATA drives, SATABoy is much more cost-efficient than storage systems using the typically more expensive SCSI, SAS and fibre-channel drives. Because of this combination of high capacity and cost-effectiveness, SATABoy delivers the industry's best price/performance value in compact disk solution.

As with all Nexsan solutions, SATABoy is built for enterprise-class applications, providing tier-1 full redundancy and high performance at tier-2 prices. It's very easy to install and use. And SATABoy includes technologies that provide a combination of cost-effective high density, space efficiency and Nexsan's AutoMAID (Massive Array of Idle Disks) level 3 energy-saving technology, which enables SATABoy to save up to 60% in energy costs.
