NS-480 is a midrange unified storage system.
The NS-480 increases storage efficiency by consolidating storage, improving utilization and centralizing backups. It offers a rich, built-in feature set, at no additional cost, that includes snapshots, automated volume management, virtual provisioning, data deduplication and file movement APIs for tiered storage and archiving.
Consolidates NAS (CIFS, NFS) and application block-based storage with iSCSI or Fibre Channel in a single integrated system.
Scales to 480 drives and non-disruptively upgrades from two to four X-Blades to move more data from disk to network.
Protects information with the standby X-Blade and Dell / EMC CX4's proven high availability.
