Collects two top prizes for its green storage products for fifth consecutive year

THOUSAND OAKS, California, 9th June 2008 – Nexsan, a leading provider of energy efficient, long term disk storage, collected top honours in two Green Storage categories at this year’s Storage Industry Awards held at the Tower Hotel, London.

Nexsan’s SATABeast disk-based backup and fixed content storage product with AutoMAID was awarded the Green Product of the Year. AutoMAID is Nexsan’s own enhancement of MAID (Massive Array of Idle Disk) technology that places disk drives into several levels of energy savings without compromising application performance. This powerful combination of high performance with energy saving capabilities enables users to lower the cost of owning storage.

In cooperation with Channel partner NCE Computer Group, Nexsan also picked up the Green Project of the Year award as the storage backbone of an overall 100 TB plus solution provided to the Honda Racing F1 Team. The Honda Racing F1 Team opted to consolidate its storage with virtualisation software operating in tandem with the Nexsan SATABeast and AutoMAID. The energy savings made possible by Nexsan’s SATABeast with AutoMAID was a perfect fit with The Honda Racing F1 Team earthdreams programme. earthdreams is a global network of environmental projects selected, funded and powered by the Honda Racing F1 Team and its partners. The 9th project was announced in Canada on 4th June.

The “Storrie” Awards are based on votes from readers of Storage Magazine, the UK’s number one IT storage magazine.
“With these two ‘Storries’, Nexsan has been recognized again as a leading innovator in green storage,” said Bob Woolery, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Nexsan. “With a design focused on saving energy without compromising application performance, Nexsan products have moved beyond the "on or off" implementations of other storage solutions to offer several levels of energy savings enabling the disk system to be "on", save energy and maintain application performance.”

Nexsan’s latest innovation in green storage, the SASBoy the industry’s first green SAS storage solution with MAID 2.0 was announced last week.
