NEC Offers Midrange Data Deduplication

Storage and data deduplication in general are considered premium services for the enterprise, and the midrange of the market has always been something of an afterthought. Recently, the storage firms are being more mindful of this potential market by providing products tuned and priced more in line with their needs. NEC is the latest, coming out with a data deduplication service for mid-sized businesses, something they could use as much as an enterprise firm. Enterprise Storage Forum has a look.

NEC Corporation of America is adding to its data deduplication story with the release of a new midrange backup and archiving appliance.

The HydraStor HS3-210 offers the features of bigger HydraStor units in a 2U rackmount enclosure, with pricing starting at $40,000 for raw capacity of 4TB, $65,000 for 8TB, and $90,000 for 12TB. With deduplication, that translates into effective capacity of 52.5, 105 and 157.5 TB.
