The NEC M-Series is a family of block storage systems that scale from entry level to the high-end.  All are dual controller systems with the smallest model, the M120, having the option of a cost-reduced single controller version.  The M-Series systems have both all flash and hybrid models and are scale-up systems with dual active controllers.  A separate NAS gateway is offered that utilizes the M-Series block storage as the backend system.

Standard software functions are included with the M-Series to provide management, VMware integration, and some performance functions.  Advanced functions are enabled with the extra cost Optional Software.

Packaged in a 2U enclosure for the M120 and M320/M320F or a 4U enclosure for the M510 and M710/M710F, the dual controllers also have the option of 25 2.5” devices or 12 3.5” devices.  Additional devices added with Disk Array Enclosures contain either 12 3.5” devices in a 2U enclosure or 24 2.5” devices in a 2U enclosure.
