M2 EQUITYBITES-November 2, 2016-NEC expands storage platform with M Series NAS Gateway


NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications, managed services and biometric solutions, revealed on Wednesday that it has added the the M-Series NAS Gateway (NAS-network attached storage) to its storage solution platform.

According to the company, its M-Series NAS Gateway delivers unified storage across the NEC platform that enables the company's M-Series family of primary storage devices to support SAN (block data) and also NAS data (file data) on the same M-Series storage system. However, if only NAS storage is required, then the gateway allows that approach. It added that this new gateway provides the flexibility to support SAN only, NAS only, or combined NAS and SAN in a unified storage system.

The M-Series NAS Gateway comes in two clustered models, with the Nh4b model cluster configuration supporting up to 4,800 CIFS clients and the Nh8b model cluster configuration supporting up to 9,600 CIFS clients. Both models provide excellent scalability and support file system sizes up to 1PB per file system and can dynamically add storage as needs may change.

Hide Senta, VP of strategic business, NEC Corporation of America said: "NEC is very excited to add unified storage to our storage family which already includes purpose-built all flash array, hybrid storage and traditional storage."
