Nexsan (, a storage system provider, says it’s
doubled the capacity of the SATABeast storage system from 42TB to
84TB in only four units (4U) of rack space. It’s designed for data
intensive storage applications that require 24×7 online data access.

The system’s chassis design reduces hard drive stress with
anti-accumulative rotational vibration and horizontal midplane
cooling technology supporting what is purportedly one of the lowest
storage system maintenance rates in the industry. As with all of the
company’s storage systems, the Nexsan SATABeast features AutoMAID
(Automatic Massive Array of Idle Disks) technology for policy-based
power management.

The Nexsan SATABeast is available immediately through the company’s
worldwide channel network. Pricing for a fully populated SATABeast
with 2TB drives starts at US$38,000 and scales based on configuration
