Scalable & Expandable Storage

Aberdeen AberSAN ZXP & AberNAS N10L Series Are Ideal For Traditional & Virtualized Environments

Aberdeen has been providing high-capacity, high-speed storage solutions for data centers for many years. And from the beginning, the company has put a strong focus on the customer experience with each one of its products. “All Aberdeen systems are fully customizable,” says Larry Aguilar, marketing manager at Aberdeen. “Aberdeen does not carry prebuilt systems. Each system is tailor-made based on each customer’s requirements and specifications.”

Aberdeen’s AberSAN ZXP Expandable ZFS SAN Storage Subsystem and AberNAS N10L Series are no different. They provide flexible and scalable storage that is designed to grow alongside a company and provide the high level of performance needed for many years to come.

Virtually Unlimited Storage

Perhaps the biggest selling point of Aberdeen’s AberSANZXP systems is that they have virtually unlimited storage. The AberSAN ZXP is built as a 128-bit system and uses a ZFS file system. This combination lets you produce unlimited snapshots for quick data restoration as well as unlimited file sizes. For management, Aberdeen includes a Web-based GUI to help manage and configure the hard drive array(s).
Aberdeen uses its ZFS-based file system to protect data and support virtualization, if necessary. Because the AberSAN ZXP provides unlimited storage, it’s capable of storing a large number of backups and system instances in case you need to restore your system due to a large-scale disaster. Aberdeen products use the ZFS file system to avoid silent data corruption, so you can be sure that every save is stored correctly and will be available when you need it. You can leverage the ZFS file system to use thin provisioning and I/O pooling. Plus, Aberdeen’s solutions are designed to work specifically with VMware environments as well as other virtualization offerings.
The AberSAN ZXP is perfect for cloud environments. Not only does it provide a large amount of storage, it is also easily expandable from a smaller starting size up to a large-scale cloud infrastructure machine. You can choose from a 19-inch rackmount solution with a 2U Head Unit, 3U JBODExpansion, or 4U JBOD Expansion, which provide depths of 17.7, 25.5, or 27.5 inches, respectively. Each system comes with different power supplies and storage options and up to 192GB of DDR3 memory. The AberSAN ZXP can handle any storage-related needs you currently have while leaving enough room for the needs you haven’t even thought of.
Designed For Businesses Of All Sizes
Aberdeen’s solutions are designed to work for all companies, from the smallest businesses to the largest enterprises. That’s why the AberNAS N10L Series of products are Linux-based servers that are available in 2.4TB, 4TB, 8TB, and 12TB capacities and can be built to provide RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60 environments depending on the level of storage you need. The AberNAS N10L Series also features an expandable SAS port, so you can connect Aberdeen XDAS (direct attached storage) units for additional storage space when you need it. And because these solutions use an open storage platform, they can be easily configured and reconfigured to meet any data center’s specific needs.
The AberNAS N10L Series is also ready for virtualization and the cloud, because each 32-bit model is VMware certified, and 64-bit certification is pending. You can start off with any of the base models for simpler virtualized environments and then expand your storage as you expand your cloud-based projects.
In addition to the storage space, 6GB to 24GB of DDR3 memory, and VMware certification, Aberdeen’s AberNAS N10L Series is built to work with some of Intel’s newest technologies, including Intel’s QuickPath Technology and a built-in memory controller, to provide the highest level of performance and speed.
Aberdeen AberSAN ZXP & AberNAS N10L Series Aberdeen’s scalable storage solutions feature the Intel® Xeon® Processor and take advantage of ZFS-based file management for virtually unlimited storage and ensure that these products will grow alongside your company to provide the highest level of performance.
