*1: The NEC Storage HS8 scale-out model is expandable from 1 HN up to 60 total nodes. Exact con guration will vary according to your performance/capacity requirements. For details, contact us.
*2: Capacity for 3 parities. The effective capacity is calculated assuming a compression ratio of 20:1. (The compression ratio varies with the type of data.)
*3: Calculated where 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes, 1 TB = 1,000 GB, and 1 PB = 1,000 TB.
*4: Capacity for a 2 HN con guration when using clustering (6 parities). The effective capacity is calculated assuming a compression ratio of 20:1. (The compression ratio varies with the type of data.)
*5: Performance achieved when OpenStorage Express I/O software is used with a typical full backup pattern (95% of existing data is duplicated).
*6: Can also be used with 100BASE-TX/10BASE-T.
*7: Supported software will gradually be increased. Contact us for details on supported software.
*8: No condensation both when operating and when on standby.
*9: Not including the front bezel, slide rails, and protrusions.
