Nexsan Adds CAS Archive

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- Nexsan Technologies, the leader in innovative and secure storage solutions, today announced its Assureon SA Archive Appliance, a complete disk-based archiving solution for smaller enterprises, branch offices and departmental groups that need simple and secure archiving capabilities, along with rapid file retrieval of up to 20 million documents, based on searching documents for key words or phrases.

Assureon SA’s secure storage architecture ensures the long term integrity of all archival content through automated integrity checks and self healing functions. Utilizing Content Addressable Storage (CAS) technology to simplify management and reduce the cost of storing important digital assets, Assureon SA provides a cost-effective alternative to tape and optical storage, and delivers fast, intelligent and affordable online access to archival information – simplifying the retrieval of digital assets required for corporate governance, compliance requirements and electronic discovery.

Search capabilities of the Assureon SA’s CAS architecture deliver accurate results with de-duplicated results, contextual excerpts and summarization, and highlighted query terms. Users can search for documents by date; special fields such as title, location, size and author; and keywords and/or phrases. Document-level security ensures that users will not see documents in a result set that they do not have access permission.

“Digital archives are not only growing in capacity, but also in the number of individual objects (defined as files and associated metadata) that are being managed by IT. ESG's Digital Archiving report shows a 65% CAGR of all archived data between 2007 and 2010. By leveraging CAS technology to store files, images, recordings, email, and other fixed content as objects with a secure and unique universal identifier, small business users now have another option apart from traditional file system models,” said Mark Bowker, Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “With the Assureon SA Archive Appliance, Nexsan has delivered a complete hardware/software solution that is easy enough to use for those organizations that may lack extensive IT resources and expertise yet provides powerful security and data protection that companies of all size require.”
