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.
