High-performance data storage

The Genesis NX gives our customers the peace-of-mind that their data and digital assets are protected. With capacity ranges from 48 to 500TB and beyond, a base system ensures that you have a rock solid data protection strategy.

No IT employee, no set up, no problems, no worries

Our team will pre-configure your NAS prior to shipping and finish setting it up remotely to create a hassle-free install. Once it’s up and running, you have direct contact with our support team for any issues, troubleshooting, or ongoing maintenance.

The NX is an ideal addition to support your SAN environment as a redundant backup option. Allow your production manager to relax knowing you are getting a 2nd instance of your data duplicated at night, and that if disaster strikes your production will continue.

"There are several factors that I think the Unlimited differentiates itself from other storage options. I love the simplicity of the Unlimited in that we don’t need to provision for an additional MDC like traditional SAN deployments. I also love that it can also function as a NAS. Many of our clients end up having to create unique solutions to bridge their SAN and NAS solutions. This product provides both in a simple to deploy package. Not many other storage solutions provide this much flexibility in options and performance at this price point."
