BOULDER, Colo. -- Building on its position as the leading provider of highly available open iSCSI SANs, LeftHand Networks today announced the availability of two new storage platforms, the NSM 4150 and the NSM 2060. These next generation platforms go beyond traditional SAN offerings and provide an ideal solution for optimizing performance and manageability in virtualized server environments. By delivering a rich feature set, advanced data protection and centralized management, LeftHand’s new products provide an elegant and automated solution at unprecedented price points.

"We believe that LeftHand Networks has one of the best SAN storage systems in the industry," said Tony Asaro, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "The NSM 4150 and NSM 2060 are both fully integrated storage systems that leverage their intelligent SAN/iQ software providing a highly virtualized solution with a set of advanced features, scalability, ease of management and capabilities. We are seeing end users embrace iSCSI but more importantly LeftHand is providing next generation storage solutions that are significantly improving the value of implementing storage networks for companies of all sizes and across different industries."

The NSM 4150 and NSM 2060 optimize virtualized server environments by providing best-in-class high data availability and performance, utilizing the advanced data replication technology in LeftHand’s SAN/iQ clustered storage software. Offered at affordable price points, the SAN solutions enable Enterprise and SME customers to deploy these capabilities wherever needed -- across corporate data centers, regional and remote offices.

“As more and more Enterprises embark on large-scale server virtualization deployments, IT departments are realizing that traditional storage infrastructures do not provide the required levels of high availability, performance and data protection required in today’s 24 x 7 world,” said David Bangs, vice president of sales, LeftHand Networks. “Multiple applications running on a single server can result in performance bottlenecks as more resources contend for a limited number of storage controllers. High availability features provided by server virtualization vendors provide application failover but – without a highly available virtualized shared storage infrastructure – do not address data availability and protection.”
