2015 NAB Show

OAKDALE, Minn.--()--Imation (NYSE:IMN), a global data storage and information security company, today announced that its recently introduced Nexsan NST2000 hybrid storage appliance will be generally available to the market beginning at next week’s NAB Show in Las Vegas. The NST2000 is a new ultra-efficient hybrid storage appliance purpose-built for media and entertainment and data protection workloads that will deliver Fibre Channel connectivity and all the benefits of hybrid storage to mid-sized organizations. It will be available for viewing and demonstration at Imation’s booth #SL15513 from April 13-16 during show exhibition hours.

“The NST2000 is perfect for organizations producing and delivering rich media, and who want to do more sharing and collaborating with their digital media workflows,” said Mike Stolz, vice president of marketing and technical support for Imation’s Nexsan solutions. “These organizations now can deploy hybrid storage, realize new levels of performance and much more – all at a price point that was previously inaccessible to them given their limited budgets and resources. We’re excited to help them drive toward a more sophisticated working environment and higher capacity workloads.”

In addition to showcasing the NST2000, Imation will feature several media and entertainment partner solutions during NAB:

  • A media asset management solution combining the NST2000 and axle Video’s Gear, which users can deploy to master their media collections;
  • A 2K/4K post-production storage solution combining Imation’s Nexsan E60VT storage solution and Bright Technologies’ Procyon media workflow solution;
  • A low-latency connectivity solution delivering high performance for Mac users, combining Imation solutions and technology from ATTO;
  • An ultra-efficient broadcast content production and delivery solution combining Imation’s Nexsan NST4000 and leading telecommunications technology from Hexaglobe.

The NST2000 delivers a powerful yet simple to deploy and manage hybrid storage solution using the latest high-performance technologies, and provides the scalability and flexibility to meet the needs of organizations that continue to rapidly add new applications to their environments. With an intelligent hybrid caching layer, NST2000 is optimized for media and entertainment workflows, data protection strategies and mixed application workloads.
