StorCentric, provider of a portfolio of secure data management solutions, is releasing Nexsan Unity software version 7.0, adding important enhancements to power enterprise-class security, compliance, and ransomware protection.

The new Unity software now supports Object (S3) protocol, and data-centric security features such as immutable snapshots and object locking.

A massive growth in data combined with significant changes in the way we work today and a rapid rise in cybercrime has driven increased demands and challenges for enterprise data center managers. The new Unity software enhancements are designed to address these issues and redefine how StorCentric channel partners and customers store, manage and protect data at scale.

Features now available in Nexsan Unity v7.0 include:

  • Protocol Support: Object (S3) Protocol - Unity is now a true unified solution, supporting Block (iSCSI, FC), File (NFS, CIFS/SMB) and now Object (S3) protocols.
  • Security, Compliance, and Ransomware Protection: Immutable Snapshots - Unity now supports immutable volume and file system snapshots for data protection. This provides secure point-in-time copies of data for business continuity. Object Locking - Unity now supports object locking, enabling bucket or object-level protection for a specified retention period to create immutable copies of data. This allows enterprises to address compliance, regulatory and other data protection requirements. Data Integrity - Unity supports pool-scrubbing to detect and remediate bit rot to avoid data corruption.
  • Performance Improvements: Total Throughput has increased up to 13GB/s on the existing platforms. Up to 50% increase in Unity to Assureon Ingest Rate – Significantly improves the efficiency of the Unbreakable Backup solution.

The Unity solutions feature flexible configurations providing for a broad range of capacity and performance requirements. Unity delivers the core enterprise features that are exactly what customers demand—all in a single platform,” said Surya Varanasi, CTO, StorCentric.
