Nexsan, a provider of energy efficient storage systems, has unveiled its DeDupe SG 2.0 file storage system designed for data protection and disaster recovery applications that require high-performance deduplication.
The SG 2.0 is the first local area network-based deduplication system able to provide continuous data access and automatic backup application failover, the firm said.
It has been designed to support Symantec's OpenStorage protocol, which helps to speed up data ingestion speeds for the increased performance and efficiency that mid-sized firms demand, Nexsan said.
This functionality also provides increased backup speeds and reduces the complexity of recovery during a disaster, according to Nexsan, with redundant appliances offering backup server connections of up to 5.4TB per hour.
The company explained that the system uses its AutoMAID technology which places disk drives in their most energy efficient state, thus improving operational and energy efficiency without affecting backup performance.
Bob Woolery, senior vice president of marketing for Nexsan, said that the SG 2.0 had been designed to meet the needs of businesses that require solutions for high availability and continuous data access.
"This release underlines our commitment to power-efficient deduplication solutions by providing a system that provides the optimised performance and efficiency which enterprises of all sizes demand," he said.
The DeDupe SG 2.0 also offers replication support for up to 150 remote sites, as well as an optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection.
Nexsan confirmed that the SG 2.0 will be available from the end of February through its global channel network.
