Nexsan Joins The Green Grid, Continues Its Pioneering Commitment to Green Storage & Energy Efficiency

  • 22 November, 2007 15:30

<p>Nexsan AutoMAID Technology Dramatically Cuts Power Consumption by up to 25X</p>
<p>Sydney, November 22, 2007 – Aust-STOR (ADS) Pty Ltd announces Nexsan, a leader in energy saving storage systems, has joined The Green Grid, a global consortium of companies dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and computing ecosystems. Nexsan will incorporate The Green Grid’s energy standards into its industry-leading technology solutions.
Nexsan will work in tandem with current Green Grid members to develop meaningful, platform-neutral standards, measurement methods, processes and new technologies to improve data center efficiency and performance. Board members of The Green Grid include AMD, APC, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Rackable Systems, SprayCool, Sun Microsystems and VMware.
Nexsan has built a strong reputation for a complete line of long-term disk storage solutions that offer exceptional price/performance and superior energy efficiency. A pioneer in green storage, Nexsan has been delivering energy efficient storage solutions since 2001 and now has 50 petabytes of storage in the field.
"Joining The Green Grid marks another significant milestone in our ongoing and aggressive commitment to providing customers with the highest levels of energy efficiency and open standards in our line of storage solutions," said Philip Black, CEO of Nexsan Corporation. "Our solutions adhere to the highest energy savings standards worldwide and we have consistently proven to customers that we can reduce their storage power consumption by as much as 25X without sacrificing performance."
Nexsan solutions employ AutoMAID technology (Automatic Massive Array of Idle Disks), allowing the company’s extreme-density storage systems to power down disk drives to an idle state to conserve energy yet provide near-instantaneous access to data. The amount of energy saved depends on user-defined settings. Nexsan products with AutoMAID have built-in next-generation energy efficient technology at no extra charge which future-proofs these long-term disk storage and archiving solutions.
Nexsan’s storage solutions are green storage enabled in order to deliver dramatic power savings. For example, where conventional fiber channel storage consumes 187KW of energy per petabyte, the Nexsan Assureon™ system in Level 3 AutoMAID™ idle mode consumes just 6KW. This power saving is achieved without sacrificing storage performance and reduces cooling and other energy-related costs.
Nexsan products are currently in use across a wide range of Fortune 500, small to mid-size companies and vertical markets, including major governmental agencies and healthcare facilities. The company’s products are available exclusively through its worldwide channel of value added resellers.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
