With SATABeast Xi, Nexsan engineers have architected the industry's most complete and cost-effective high capacity storage system. SATABeast Xi's advanced mechanical design provides superior cooling for optimal thermal operation, reduces drive vibration and delivers outstanding energy efficiency in an extreme density (42 drives in 4U high) form factor. SATABeast's unique design extends individual drive life and provides TCO savings year over year.

SATABeast Xi employs Nexsan's revolutionary AutoMAID™ energy saving technology. AutoMAID transparently places disk drives in an idle state reducing power consumption and operational costs. AutoMAID delivers the cost-saving benefits of MAID (Massive Array of Idle Disks) without the limitations of slow access times and special host software. Nexsan's AutoMAID is granular to an individual drive or RAID set and enables users to determine the level of access speed and energy savings desired. AutoMAID is the first MAID 2.0 architecture that supports VTL (Virtual Tape Libraries), full file format D2D and standard RAID implementations.

SATABeast Xi performs continuous background integrity scans to ensure drive health and data accessibility. Each controller features full cache coherency to maintain data integrity even in the event of a power loss.

Nexsan's award-winning high performance SATA RAID controller architecture utilizes dual RAID engines on each SATABeast Xi controller to provide extremely high throughput performance across 42 spindles. SATABeast Xi's 42 high capacity drives can be segmented into multiple RAID sets or a single large storage pool. LUN Mapping allows users to easily configure the massive disk capacity for dozens of servers or one.
All individual SATABeast Xi components are fully redundant and hot swappable. This advanced design provides increased ROI by eliminating the need to replace an entire multi-drive blade should a single drive fail.
SATABeast's Xi management interface is built into the SATABeast Xi controller, alleviating the need to have a separate server or application manage the storage array. This sophisticated management utility monitors and reports the status of all subsystems over a 10/100/1000-network port. Included in NexScan are Tele-GuardT, Nexsan's phone-home feature for user notification of errors or prediction of error, and WorldView, our multi-box management feature.
