Genesis ZX

ZFS-based NAS Appliance

Preserve your data with business continuity

The Genesis ZX is ZFS enhanced and made easy as a clustered NAS and file server. The sub-systems provide customers with high-performance data storage at a competitive cost/TB.

With the addition of our SAS-attached JBOD expansion chassis, capacities can easily reach over 5PB in each mounted volume. Small, medium and large workgroups will benefit from this strong on or off site data protection solution.
