NEC Computers has launched the first two models under the new NEC Storage D-Series.

NEC Computers has launched the first two models under the new NEC Storage D-Series. According to the company, the products set new standards for cost-effective scalability and performance.

The models are NEC Storage D1-10, an entry level model for workgroups scalable up to four 4Gbit/s fibre channel host ports, 72 SAS/SATA HDDs and 2Gbyte cache and NEC Storage D3-10, an entry to mid-range model meant for enterprise departments featuring up to 12 4Gbit/s fiber channel host ports, 144x SAS/SATA HDDs and 4Gbyte cache.

The NEC D-Series features mixable SAS and SATA HDDs within the same storage subsystems increasing storage configuration flexibility and RAID Triple Mirror for combining RAID-1 performance along with protection against double disk drive failure.

It also includes NEC's patented Phoenix technology that reduces HDD degradation and MAID technology that helps to reduce system power consumption by powering off unused disk drives.

"Enterprises of all sizes have to continually manage exponential data growth, which increases the cost and complexity of storage systems that support their most critical business operations," said Jon Green, senior product marketing manager at NEC Computers.

"With the new NEC Storage D-Series, companies' decisions will be simplified knowing that these cost-effective storage systems are going to be able to scale with their growing storage needs, whilst continuing to support demanding operational and transaction environments," he added.

All of the NEC Storage D-Series models come along with NEC's storage software suite, which is designed to meet the data management and business continuity requirements of enterprises across the globe.

NEC's data management software portfolio offers several products covering key areas such as business continuity, configuration management, performance monitoring, load balancing, seamless capacity expansion and disaster recovery.
