Corus360 Powers Green Recovery Center With Nexsan E60 Energy Efficient Storage


June 16, 2011 - Thousand Oaks, Ca And Atlanta, GA

Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of disk-based storage systems, and Corus360, a technology consulting and solutions company, today announced that Corus360 has chosen the Nexsan E60™, the most energy-efficient enterprise-class storage system on the market today. Corus360 selected the E60 for its award-winning LEED-certified Recovery Center in Norcross, Ga., the first in the state.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Deployed as part of the Corus360 managed services infrastructure, the Nexsan E60 serves as a primary end-user storage repository in the company's LEED-certified Recovery Center. The Corus360 facility boasts eco-friendly features such as occupancy-sensing compact fluorescent lighting, water-saving plumbing, additional windows for natural lighting, efficient AC units and a white roof that reflects rather than absorbs sun rays. Recently, Corus360 was also a finalist for the "Green Save" award from the Atlanta Business Journal for executing sustainable business practices within the company and was also honored in the Gwinnett Sustainable Awards by Gwinnett County, Ga., where its Recovery Center is located.

"With more than two petabytes of data under management, it is critical for Corus360 to utilize power-managed storage to maintain a highly efficient power friendly technology infrastructure," said Stephen Jones, Chief Technologist, Corus360. "We have achieved this with Nexsan E-Series storage solutions. With features such as AutoMAID®, our company has reduced total carbon emissions as much as 3.5 Billion BTU per year, receiving 30% in expenditure tax credits from the state. Additionally, our total annual energy savings is $104,000 -- a real win for business and the environment."

"With up to 85 percent energy savings, the Nexsan E60 is the ideal green storage system to maximize data center efficiency," said Victoria Grey, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Nexsan. "The E60 incorporates everything we have learned about reducing the carbon footprint of one of the largest power consumers in the data center -- storage hardware."

"Corus360 is committed to green building and the use of highly efficient technology, and our new data center embodies that commitment," said Bill Baron, Vice President, Sales, Corus360. "When we learned about the Nexsan E60, we knew it was the right storage for our data center. The incredibly energy efficient design provides the high-capacity we require in a small form factor, bringing energy savings to the heart of our service."

The Nexsan E60 is a member of the Flexible Storage Platform™, a next-generation, high-density and energy-efficient storage system that accommodates 60 disks and provides up to 180TBs of storage in only 4U. It seamlessly combines SATA, SAS, and SSD drives to give IT administrators a high degree of flexibility. The high-density design of the E60 reduces the number of components required to implement any given amount of storage, which results in greater reliability and lower power consumption. The product also employs Nexsan's AutoMAID Level 4 technology, which reduces energy costs by up to 85 percent.
