NEC launches all-flash M-Series storage products with high-speed database processing
*** For immediate use October 15, 2015
Tokyo, Japan, 15 October, 2015 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) today announced the launch of all-flash storage products, the NEC Storage M310F and M710F, for the NEC Storage M-Series.
The new products incorporate solid state drives (SSDs) for all of the storage media, achieving a processing speed that is up to 100 times (*1) faster than storages containing an equal number of hard disk drives (HDDs). The faster processing speed eliminates performance bottlenecks in virtualized environments and opens the way for high-speed database processing.
In addition, the new models require as little as one twentieth of the space (*1) required for HDD-based storages when constructing a system with the same input/output operations per second (IOPS).
"The use of big data is spreading throughout the enterprise sector, leading to greater needs for systems with higher processing performance," said Shigeru Matsuura, Deputy General Manager, Global Platform Division, NEC Corporation. "The new products with the all-flash feature have a considerably higher processing speed than conventional HDD-based storage systems. This paves the way for the real-time analysis of complicated big data in response to the rising demand for higher processing performance."
