NEC-Storage-HYDRAstor-HS8-3000NEC has launched the fourth generation HYDRAstor HS8-4000. The HS8-4000 expands the scalability of the HYDRAstor grid storage platform to greater than 900 TB/hr (250,000 MB/s) of throughput and greater than 100PB of effective capacity, with inline global deduplication across a single scale-out system.

With this release, HYDRAstor HS8-4000 introduces a new type of node, the Hybrid Node (HN), which combines the functionality of both an Accelerator Node and a Storage Node by adding both performance and capacity to a HYDRAstor grid system.

With the fourth generation HYDRAstor, NEC is also introducing a new version of the single-node Mini-HYDRA, the HS3-410.
