NEC Named 2015 Best of Interop Winner in Storage - HYDRAstor® HS8-4000 wins Storage category -

*** For immediate use April 29, 2015

Las Vegas, NV, April 29, 2015 NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading technology integrator of advanced IT and communications solutions, along with NEC Corporation in Japan, today announced that NEC's HYDRAstor HS8-4000, the latest generation of NEC's scale-out grid storage system, has won the Best of Interop Storage category, as determined by a distinguished panel of judges at Interop Las Vegas. The conference continues through May 1 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. For more information, visit

The Best of Interop Judging Committee, made up of award-winning IT editors and analysts, reviewed entries in nine categories. The winners in each category represented the products that the judging committee believed had the most significant technical impact on their segment and are helping to move business technology forward.

"Congratulations to NEC for the success of HYDRAstor HS8-4000 and taking home the Best of Interop award in the Storage category," said Interop General Manger Jennifer Jessup. "Interop is proud to host this prestigious awards program to celebrate our community's accomplishments and the unique solutions advancing business technology."

With the 4.2 release, NEC's HYDRAstor HS8-4000 introduced a new feature called "Deduped Transfer," which significantly increased the maximum performance of each HYDRAstor Hybrid Node by 6x and vaulted HYDRAstor to the top single-controller PBBA throughput (40 TB/hr per Hybrid Node). This significant enhancement also quadrupled HYDRAstor's single system scale-out performance capability from 1 PB/hr to 4 PB/hr (>1 TB/s). By comparison, this is about 30x higher than the next closest competitor. Another major improvement achieved by Deduped transfer is the reduction of bandwidth requirements for massive data transfer, as well as support for remote backups from smaller locations directly to the data center.

"The Best of Interop award in the Storage category continues the recognition NEC has achieved at past Interop events as a leading technology provider. We are honored that the Best of Interop committee recognizes the business value that NEC's storage solutions provide," said Gideon Senderov, director, advanced storage, NEC Corporation of America. "NEC will continue to deliver new innovative solutions that leverage the HYDRAstor technology to maximize efficiency and performance for our customers."

NEC is showcasing HYDRAstor as well as other solutions in SDN, UC&C, Cloud Services and Big Data Analytics this week at Interop Las Vegas in NEC booth #1033.
