what is old maid
What is “Old” MAID?

MAID (massive array of idle disks)

Employs a select group of disks

Only disks in active use are spinning

Disks that are not active are not spinning

Slow - takes several minutes to access disks

Reduces power consumption

why is nexsan automaid better
Why is Nexsan AutoMAID Better

Old MAID

Reduces application performance for energy savings

“On-or-off” approach to energy savings

Usually only supported on SATA drives

Minutes to spin up components to respond to IO requests

Slow response confines use to just a few applications

AutoMAID

Benefits of MAID without the limitations!

  • Energy savings with application performance “Green with Speed”
  • Supported on SAS and SATA drives
  • Three levels of energy savings
    • Level 1, up to 20%
    • Level 2, up to 40% (SATA only)
    • Level 3, up to 60%
  • Fast response to 1st I/O requests
    • Level 1, sub-second
    • Level 2, less than 15 seconds
    • Level 3, less than 30 seconds
  • Fast and flexible response broadens use to include a wide range of applications
