High Performance...

Designed to meet the challenges of the most demanding environments, ATAboy2® delivers unparalleled availability and performance in an ATA RAID device. With sustained thoughput speeds of up to 170 MB/s per controller, ATAboy2® provides high performance across all standard platforms and operating systems. Quad SCSI or dual 2Gb fibre channel connectors (per controller) enable easy and flexible implementation into a wide range of environments. ATAboy2's unique combination of high performance and enormous capacity provides exceptional value that enhances all digital storage applications, such as live on-line data, HDTV, digital film and video, nearline storage, security, audio, disk-based backup (D2D) and disaster recovery.

Cost Correct Enterprise Class Reliability...

Unsurpassed reliability results from utilizing redundancy, advanced ATA disk drives and the latest in RAID technology. The Nexsan designed GUI interface, NexScan™, provides the latest in centralized management and monitoring features for all Nexsan subsystems. Tele-Guard™, Nexsan's phone home manager, provides operator selectable parameters monitoring all system conditions. Tele-Guard™ provides the vehicle to notify single or multiple system operators of any user defined, system triggered event. In addition to supporting On-Line Hot-Swap for all active components, the InfiniSAN ATAboy2® unique run-time diagnostics and error handling software monitors automatic fail over initiation for all active components. InfiniSAN ATAboy2® ATA disk-based systems provide the maximum uptime operation and data protected environment available today.
