All the company's storage products include advanced thin provisioning, distributed clustering, synchronous multisite SAN replication and asynchronous remote copy replication capabilities.

The NSM 2120 provides up to 9 terabytes of storage capacity in a two-unit form factor and is available in five configurations, each with 12 hot-swappable disk drives. The NSM 2120 is available now with prices starting at $22,000.
