By ensuring that users have a consistent point of access to their data, AutoVirt allows IT administrators to automate the movement of data within their Windows storage environments. As administrators move data to where they need it to be – business-critical data to a new device, a replica to a secondary location, last year’s share to Tier 2 storage – clients are automatically redirected to the new location of their data.
By eliminating impact on end-users, AutoVirt removes a number of logistical barriers to project execution and frees IT to approach storage management more dynamically.
With AutoVirt, IT administrators can design policies to automate data measurement, copying, migration, replication, and archiving. A policy is a series of logical and validation commands defined using a GUI-based wizard. Policies are schedulable and include configurable e-mail alerts and exception handling.
How it works
AutoVirt inserts a global namespace to organize networked shares and shield end-users from the back-end logistics of storage management. The namespace eliminates the manual work involved in maintaining client access to networked data: it is the single authority on networked files, and automatically resolves client shortcuts to the new location.
With AutoVirt’s global namespace registering all changes to data location, it is possible to automate many storage management tasks – including those that affect data location. The AutoVirt policy engine is responsible for automating data measurement, copying, migration, replication, and archiving.
AutoVirt’s namespace and policy engine interact with both clients and networked file servers using the Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol.

intelligent access prioritizing mechanism
on its virtual architecture. With these
features, storage utilization can be
optimized and applications can achieve
their ideal service levels. The ESVA
delivers advanced technologies to make
the most of your storage investments.
ESVA simplifies storage management by
enabling a single point of administration.
Scaling the storage pool is also a very easy
task, and can be done without service
disruption. ESVA systems can be scaled
for increased capacity by connecting it to
expansion enclosures. If you want to
increase capacity and performance at the
same time, you can also scale out the
virtualized foundation by adding additional
ESVA systems. When a new system is
added, the distributed load balancing
technology will dynamically balance
workloads among storage systems and

tm STORAGE SYSTEM WITH AutoMAID®
The Corona-Norco Unified School District solved all its challenges with the Nexsan
E60 storage system. The system was selected for its performance, density and
value. Corona-Norco also benefitted from the system’s unique power management
features, providing up to 85% energy savings.
The school district quickly and effectively consolidated production data in their
VMware environment and further enhanced its data protection strategy with the
Nexsan E60, which includes 40 SAS drives to provide primary storage for Exchange,
database and other production data. An additional 20 SATA drives are used for
disk-based backup for complete protection of the school district’s information.
All of this storage capacity fits in a compact 4U of rack space for superior space
efficiency. Delivering further value for the growing school district, the E60 features
Nexsan’s power efficient AutoMAID
® technology for low power consumption and
data center maintenance costs.
The Nexsan E60 has given the Corona-Norco Unified School District the flexible, high
density and high performance platform it needed for both its primary and secondary
storage requirements in a single storage enclosure. In addition, the school district
is seeing up to an 85% reduction in energy consumption without any performance
compromise - a result that is delivering significant operational cost savings.
“We needed a storage solution optimized for compatibility and performance in
virtual environments. Nexsan fit the bill perfectly,” said Brian Troudy, Network
Manager, Corona-Norco Unified School District.
