NEC HYDRAstor: High Performance - Maximum Capacity


HYDRAstor, NEC's award-winning distributed grid storage platform, enables long-term data retention through scalability of performance and maximized capacity without the complexity and inherent limitations of legacy storage solutions.

NEC HYDRAstor is capable of delivering lower storage capacity consumption by up to 95% or more with inline global data deduplication and significant reduction in network bandwidth requirement with WAN-Optimized Replication for cost-effective disaster recovery.

HYDRAstor HS Virtual Appliance (VA) can be plugged into existing virtual environment without effort and used as universal backup repository. WAN-optimized Replication minimizes network bandwidth and send local backup to remote data center.
