The E-Series is Nexsan’s advanced SAN storage system for mid-sized organizations needing an extremely dense and highly reliable solution. Nexsan's expertise in capacity-optimized storage has led to industry-leading efficiencies at the lowest possible cost-per-terabye for applications like disk backup, bulk storage and more, all tailored to fit in any environment whether traditional, virtual or cloud. The E60 offers 60 drives for up to 180TB in 4U. The E48 offers 48 drives for up to 144TB in 4U, and the E18 offers 18 drives for up to 54TB in 2U. Each can be easily expanded with additional capacity by adding an E18X or E60X expansion unit.


The E-Series delivers industry-leading density and power efficiency for the smallest storage footprint with up to 3X the capacity in the same space as a typical array while consuming up to 85% less power and cooling when idle. A fault tolerant and highly reliable architecture ensures enterprise-class data protection. Innovative ease-of-use functionality makes deploying and managing storage a simple task for the resource constrained IT administrator. It comes pre-configured and is up and running in 10 minutes or less with intuitive wizards – no professional services required.

The E-Series is highly flexible supporting multiple drive types and protocols for administrators needing a single system to support varying workloads. SATA/SAS/SSD can be tiered together to support both capacity and performance driven applications. I/O ports include dual port 8Gb FC, or dual port 10Gb iSCSI, or dual port 24Gb SASX4; coupled with two 1Gb iSCSI ports. With dual raid engines per controller, the E-Series delivers blazing wire-speed read/write throughput and high IOPS. The active/active dual controller configuration provides twice the I/O ports and increases system performance.

Offering superior reliability, the E-Series meets and exceeds the most stringent demands with a top-tier mechanical design that removes heat and vibration from the chassis via Cool Drive Technology™ and vibration dampening. Nexsan’s Active Drawer Technology™ is an industry-first, making extreme density easily and quickly serviced by one person - simply pull out a drawer of drives, and the system remains online! In addition, extensive drive stress testing qualifies reliability on all E-Series system before shipment.
