Storage solutions provider Nexsan Technologies announced on Thursday (10 January) the SATABeast Xi, a high density, energy efficient storage solution built and optimized for the Apple Xserve and Mac Pro markets.

According to the company the SATABeast Xi provides up to 42TB of storage in 4U of rack space, and features AutoMAID (Massive Array of Idle Disks), which allows SATABeast Xi to place its disk drives in an idle state to conserve energy, at the same time providing near-instantaneous access to data. In addition, the solution delivers dual function Fibre Channel and iSCSI connectivity at wire-speed performance.

While the solution has been optimized and designed for the Apple Xserve and Mac Pro, complementing those environments both physically and with its GUI that will be familiar to Leopard OS users, it is also suitable for mixed environments.

The product has been designed for primary storage of large data set applications like uncompressed, real-time HDTV, as well as multi-stream and analogue TV signals and high-quality video editing with no frame drops. In addition, it is suitable for secondary storage applications and disk-to-disk backup.

The solution is scheduled to be available starting 15 March, 2008. Pricing starts at USD1,200/TB.
