Nexsan gives 42TB array a make-over for picky Apple fans

SATAbeast, Cooling, Maintenence & Experience

Hi all

It was interesting to read these posts...I have worked for a company that sells (& provides maintenance contracts) for Nexsan SAN arrays over 5 years....almost 3 years of which are for this '2nd Gen' system!

My / our feedback is that the Nexsan (particularly the SATAbeast’s) are VERY reliable, have excellent standard warranties, easily managed, very power, cool, rack space efficient...& we have SO many reference site to back this up ranging from Media/Post Production houses through to Banking/Finance, Education, Govt & even an F1 racing Team!

We would not offer onsite maintenance contracts on unreliable kit as we would not be in business still I can assure you.

(They even have a UK based R&D as well as manuf. facility here... shipping Petabytes of SAN storage per month)

PS The Sun Thumper does not offer SAN disk provisioning (block level provisioning) as far as I am aware, is way more expensive to buy / maintain as well as from we have seen so far, not quite as good performance!
