User-friendly GUI makes storage management and data handling easy

The highly visual Web browser screens let you quickly grasp the status of each system component, including the storage capacity, disk load, and status of the connected servers. Easy-to-understand navigation windows allow you to make changes to the replication settings or capacity, as well as guide you through fault handling in the event of a failure. The M300 Disk Array GUI can be navigated with confidence, even by first-time users.

Ramp up capacity and performance just by adding hard disk drives

In today's environment of rapid changes, you need a storage solution that responds quicky and flexibly to sudden fluctuations in data volumes. M300 Disk Array offers a newly developed Advanced Dynamic Pool technology that revolutionizes the conventional virtual pool concept. If capacity runs short, you can increase pool capacity simply by adding hard disk drives-M300 Disk Array will automatically organize the data into the optimal configration to raise the performance of the entire data pool.

An advanced power-saving design that slashes power consumption

With M300 Disk Array, NEC has used its state-of-the-art low power technologies to produce a storage device that slashes previous power consumption levels to achieve one of the best power ratings in the industry. M300 Disk Array uses a power-efficient processor and autonomously controls the operating mode to reduce the power consumption of the entire system. Low-power components such as a highly efficient power supply have been used to the greatest extent possible, and unnecessary components have been eliminated to reduce power consumption still further. M300 Disk Array also operates in environments with temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius, 104 degrees Fahrenheit reducing air-conditioning energy use.

A data backup system that does not affect online operations

Having to stop your business volume every day to back up data is highly inefficient. M300 Disk Array provides a snapshot function to save only the data sections that have changed (update differences) and a function to completely replicate (copy) an entire data volume without disrupting operations. The replicated volume can then be used for tape backup or batch processing, or to evaluate applications using the actual data.
