With a history of both hardware and software innovation, and with many market "firsts" to its credit, Nexsan is recognized as a pioneer of reliable disk-based storage technologies optimized for capacity, energy efficiency and cost. Through our adoption and refinement of RAID, ATA and SATA disk technologies coupled with our own innovations in de-duplications, secure archiving software, and storage encryption, our products have dramatically reshaped the economics of disk-based storage. Nexsan now offers enterprise-class storage at price points up to 1/10th the cost of traditional disk-based storage solutions. Our products are the first to offer or AutoMAID (Automatic Massive Array of Idle Disks), a policy-based intelligent "green" energy saving technology. AutoMAID epitomizes the MAID 2.0 concept in which power consumption is dramatically reduced without sacrificing performance.
