THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Nexsan Technologies, the leader in secure and energy efficient storage solutions, today announced that it is offering storage systems featuring Hitachi Global Storage Technologies new Ultrastar™ A7K1000 one-terabyte (TB) enterprise-class hard drives, which will immediately be incorporated into the company’s award-winning SATABeast, SATABoy and SATABlade products. These new hard drives add 33% increased capacity over existing configurations.

Utilizing the industry’s highest-capacity hard drives, Nexsan has increased the total capacity of the SATABeast to 42TB, the highest of any RAID system available today, in just 4U of rack space. SATABoy jumps in capacity to 14TB in a 3U configuration and the SATABlade now provides 8TB in a 1U form factor.

“With the vast amount of high-resolution satellite imagery and aerial photography that we produce for customers, we are always looking for an optimized disk solution that allows us to get the upper hand on our capacity requirements,” said Mick Garrett, CTO of i-cubed, a premier provider of geospatial imagery, management and dissemination systems. “Since we first introduced Nexsan’s SATABeast 2 years ago, the units have performed flawlessly and rapidly become the cornerstone of our storage strategy. Our SATABeast systems enable us to easily and securely manage our disk-intensive image processing applications in the most cost-effective manner. The system’s increased capacity with the new Hitachi Ultrastar 1TB drives continues to scale up to suit our growing needs for maximum storage space with a minimum of power consumption and physical floor space to house it.”
