1 Confidential 1 Zophar Sante Product Management Nexsan Technologies Inc. 555 St. Charles Drive Thousand Oaks, CA Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A Nexsan iSeries™ Complete iSCSI SAN

2 Confidential 2 What is Nexsan iSeries™ Complete iSCSI SAN for Storage Consolidation and Virtualization Nexsan iSeries™ Includes enterprise-class storage services High reliability and performance High density, scalable to 1PB with Nexsan Storage Nexsan “GREEN” AutoMAID Includes: Storage consolidation, tiering and virtualization Snapshots, mirroring and replication Redundancy and multi-pathing Suitable for: Server Virtualization (VMware Certified) Exchange, SQL, Oracle, other databases Storage and data consolidation iSCSI Storage Area Network Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

3 Confidential Nexsan iSeries™ Includes 3 Nexsan iSeries Appliance (s) Nexsan iSeries Storage Services Nexsan Storage (New or Existing) Integrated into a single iSCSI SAN Enterprise SMB Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

4 Confidential Nexsan iSeries™ A Truly Enterprise Class iSCSI SAN 4 High Speed iSeries Appliance High speed, low latency - bus, OS and chip set Address multiple applications simultaneously Address high performance requirements High Connectivity Support small to large environments Up to 200 servers per iSCSI SAN Create 1000’s of unique volumes High Availability Nexsan iSeries™ Clustering and Multi-pathing Ensure continuous data access Protects against connection, network or system outage Fault tolerant and hot-swappable Enterprise Class Nexsan Storage High performance, reliability and scalability Over 21,000 units installed in 60+ countries Independent performance engine – RAID and Cache Create storage tiers using Nexsan SAS and SATA Scale capacity to 1PB (petabyte) Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A iSeries Appliance Nexsan Storage

5 Confidential Nexsan iSeries™ Storage Services 5 iSCSI Server Network Storage Virtualization Create virtual volumes from any storage tier Create any size volume to precisely meet application needs Increase volume size while online Recycle capacity from obsolete volumes Storage Tiering Create different storage tiers Use SAS for performance, SATA for capacity, or create a very green tier for backup/archive - All within the same SAN Match different tiers with different applications Scale from SMB to Enterprise Support small to large environments Support up to 200 servers Create 1000’s of virtual volumes Scale individual volume size to 64TB Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

6 Confidential 6 Create and use a volume in seconds 1.Give it a volume name 2.Select the storage tier 3.Determine the size That’s it – you’re done Like RAID types are pooled into a single storage tiers The volume is automatically created from the selected pool iSeries load balancing assigns the volume to the least used iSeries host port Volume is automatically exposed to the iSCSI SAN network Volume is ready to be used by the server Instant Volume Creation Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

7 Confidential 7 Ensure bandwidth for demanding high performance applications Applications using SAS storage can be given priority over applications using SATA storage to ensure optimum performance and responsiveness. The user can configure iSeries bandwidth and control how much bandwidth is given to SAS based applications as opposed to SATA based applications If SAS is not being accessed – bandwidth is given 100% to SATA until SAS bandwidth is required New iSeries Feature - QoS – bandwidth management for iSeries tiered storage environments SATA Pool SAS Pool MAX Limited Databases VMware Hyper-V OLTP Print servers Web servers Backup Archive Home directories Example shows SATA bandwidth limited to 50MBs Applications using SAS will have full use of the remaining bandwidth (approx. 220 MBs) Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

8 Confidential Windows SQL and Exchange Setup Wizards Meets Microsoft best practices requirements Automatically creates separate volumes for LOGs and DATA Automatically configures iSeries bandwidth mangers Automatic storage pooling All storage resources with the same drive and RAID type can be placed into a single “POOL” When volumes are created, iSeries will automatically select the best resource within the pool to deliver optimal performance 8 Nexsan iSeries™ Automated Storage Services Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

9 Confidential A Nexsan iSeries™ Data Protection 9 Data Mirroring Mirror data across multiple storage systems, locally or to another location using FC Stay in production – even if a storage system goes offline Protect data if your main site is damaged Snapshots Multiple snapshots per volume Eliminate the backup window, backup from snapshots and remain on line Eliminate need for incremental tape backups Integrated with Microsoft VSS for live database backup (SQL, Exchange) Quickly recovery any volume Convert snapshots to read and/or write for data mining and testing A-S2 A-S1 A-S4 A-S3 A A Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

10 Confidential 10 Create and Schedule Snapshots in Seconds 1.Select the size 2.Select the frequency 3.Decide how many you want to keep That’s it – you’re done Snapshots are created on a per volume basis Snapshot volumes are automatically created and recycled Automatic Snapshot Scheduler Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

11 Confidential Nexsan iSeries™ Storage Services 11 Online Data Migration Migrate data between storage systems Reduce per TB costs by moving volumes to lower cost storage tiers Move volumes to more green storage Replace old storage systems with new storage systems while remaining online Migrate volumes off 3 rd party, legacy or obsolete storage systems to Nexsan iSeries Data Striping Stripe data across multiple storage systems Increase read and write performance AB AA AC A -NEW A- OLD Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

12 Confidential Nexsan iSeries™ Remote Data Replication and Disaster Recovery 12 Asynchronous or Synchronous remote data replication Reduce or eliminate tape backup – dramatically reduce recovery time Failover services to another site in the event of disaster Agent and server free, non-disruptive - done in the background Replicate only block changes to maximize connection bandwidth Use consistency groups for multi-volume applications like databases Use remote snapshots to test DR functionality without disrupting replication or production volumes Keep it simple with wizard and policy based management IP – LAN, MAN, WAN Primary Volume Secondary Volume A-1 A-2 Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

13 Confidential Multiple Sites Topologies 13 Nexsan iSeries™ Data Replication Topologies Back to Back Two production sites – each replicating data to the other for disaster recovery Any to Any Replicate to any other Nexsan iSeries site Many to One Multiple sites can replicated to and use a single site for disaster recovery Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A

14 Confidential Nexsan iSeries™ Simple to Deploy, Learn and Manage Centralized and unified management (Nexsan iSeries™ Management) Simple wizard based setup and administration Administer local and remote systems with a single interface Centrally manage volumes, snapshots, replication, mirroring and data migration SNMP and alerts 14 Nexsan iSeries™ General Product PPT GA A
