NEC Intros D-Series

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- NEC Corporation of America, a premier provider of IT, network and identity management solutions, today introduced the NEC D-Series storage systems that set a new standard for massive scalability, high performance and high availability.

Using the D-Series storage arrays, small to large enterprises can for the first time non-disruptively and cost-effectively scale storage from 219 GB to 1.152 PBupgrades that can be made while the systems remain online. Non-disruptive upgrades are possible with the NEC D-Series’ revolutionary design, the first to unify the characteristics of mid-range modular and enterprise storage architectures in a single system. With the D-Series arrays, enterprises can also scale from 2 GB to 128 GB of cache, from four to sixty-four 4 GB-per-second fibre channels, and from three to 1,156 disk drives. This broad, non-disruptive scalability provides businesses with incredible flexibility in deploying a storage system for today’s needs that can grow to meet tomorrow’s demands.

"Customers across a broad range of industries are experiencing tremendous growth in the storage capacity and performance needed to support a successful business," said Brad Nisbet, program manager for IDC Storage Systems. "Storage systems like the D-Series from NEC that allow customers to non-disruptively scale capacity, performance, connectivity and availability across a broad range of entry-points can provide the flexibility and investment protection that customers are seeking."
