Super Aguri F1 Team welcomes Nexsan Technologies as an Official Team Supplier with immediate effect. Nexsan Technologies will supply the team with secure data archiving solutions both at the team's UK factory in Leafield and whilst the race team is situated at Formula One circuits around the world.

Based in Los Angeles, USA, Nexsan Technologies comprehensive data storage products will replace a number of drives on the team's busy IT network.

Designed to set new standards for high-capacity storage systems, 'SATABeast' will provide Super Aguri F1 Team with unparalleled storage flexibility to meet its business objectives. The Assureon® box will securely store Super Aguri F1 Team race data, CAD drawings and other important electronic information. Assureon is a new breed of intelligent, disk-based archiving solutions that give users powerful and cost-effective choices for the protection, retention and long term care of their information assets.

The 'SATABoy' by Nexsan Technologies will enable cost-effective storage of large amounts of information online, whilst ensuring faster response times for mission critical applications. The solution is equally capable of delivering high IOPS for transactional applications and sustaining maximum MB's throughput for high bandwidth applications and as such will be a valuable asset to the traveling race team.

In its partnership with Super Aguri F1 Team, the Nexsan Technologies logo will be visible in all the Super Aguri F1 Team garages, on the IT racks, the Team Trucks and in the UK factory.

Joe Birkett, IT Manager, Super Aguri F1 Team:

"We are excited to be using Nexsan Technolgies' SATABeast, SATABoy and Assureon products as our IT storage backbone. Assureon allows us to protect our mission critical data while the SATABeast product for the factory base provides us with a flexible and scalable storage platform which will allow us to meet our storage needs into the future. In addition, the SATABoy product provides us with a resilient and high-performance solution for the race team which will enhance our trackside abilities and contribute towards our pursuit of strengthening our all round performance."

Robert Woolery, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Nexsan Technologies:

"The World of Formula One generates massive amounts of data from videos and images for race analysis to telemetry data transmitted from monitoring equipment all over the cars. We are delighted that the Super Aguri F1 Team has selected our high-performance disk-based storage systems to provide the speed, flexibility and security that they need."
