The Nfina 8324R-SAN deliver high-density, high iOPS, and low latency.

Nfina’s 8324R-SAN storage solution ensures that all your mission-critical storage is always protected, available, and easily managed. Nfina lets you choose the best storage solution that meets your business needs, whether you are expanding existing NAS or SAN infrastructure, or need to deploy or modernize your backup & disaster recovery strategy. Organizations of all sizes will benefit from Nfina’s storage solutions that help maximize efficiency while reducing storage cost.
The Nfina 8324R-SAN is a truly breakthrough storage platform delivering high-performance storage (block and file share) for backup, disaster recovery, or business continuity solutions. They are ideal candidates for an all-flash storage array (AFA) or for creating backup storage for a HA cluster and can be loaded with 24 NVMe/SSD direct attach drives per node, alleviating the I/O bottleneck between high performance and capacity.
