Nexsan SATABeast Xi

Nexsan today unveiled the SATABeast Xi, an energy-efficient, high-density storage solution optimized for use with Xserve and Mac Pro computers. The 4U rackmount offers up to 42TB of storage, which take advantage of AutoMAID technology - MAID stands for Massive Array of Idle Disks. This allows the SATABeast to conserve energy and prolong disk life, while still maintaining almost instantaneous access to user data. SATABeast Xi includes fibre channel and iSCSI connectors, making it platform independent, and uses a Mac OS X-like interface for customization. Nexsan will ship the drive array in March, with prices starting at $1200 per Terabyte.

"Our customers produce the highest-quality, rich media content including HD television programming and feature length movies, and have been challenging us to develop a rock-solid storage solution for Xserve and other environments," said Chris Donoyan, President and Founder of HomeRun Media. "We've never had an available solution like SATABeast Xi that delivers high density storage and energy savings all in one package for both fibre channel and iSCSI."
