M500 SAN Storage Array

NEC M500 SAN arrays feature state-of-the-art host interfaces: 8Gbps Fibre Channel, 10Gbps/10Gbps iSCSI. Both interfaces can be deployed concurrently. M500 offers 3.5" and 2.5" drives. 2.5" drives are attractive due to their lower power and space consumption. 3.5" drives by contract offer the best storage density per spindle. M500 simultaneously supports SAS HDD, NearLine SAS HDD, and SSD in the same enclosures, enabling flexible tiered storage architecture.
