Nexsan Assureon – Product Brief

This document is retired and no longer updated. Last updated December 16th, 2015 with year end updates. Concise 8-page review of the features and functionality of Nexsan Assureon Archive.

The Nexsan Assureon is a storage solution for archiving that is delivered  as  an  appliance  with  the  hardware  and  software integrated into a complete, ready to install and use system.  The Assureon has several models that vary in capacity and capability to meet archiving needs for unstructured data archiving.

The Assureon system creates independent archives (repositories) for the archiving of information.  The archives can have different retention  policy  settings  and  administrative  controls to provide  isolation  of  data.    Standard servers  and  Nexsan  storage  are  used  in  the  systems,  which  are  delivered  as  appliances. Unstructured files from application and file servers are archived as files and managed by the Assureon which internally creates an object that contains the file contents and a separate object that contains the file’s metadata.   The Assureon uses the digital fingerprint of the data as an internal reference within the Assureon.

Imation acquired Nexsan in 2013 but continues to use the Nexsan name for the product.
