NEC’s dynamic infrastructure features a range of products and solutions that can be scaled to meet each customer’s need:
NEC Express5800/1000 Series High-end Enterprise Servers: The NEC Express5800/1320Xf, with a world-record TPC-E performance benchmark earned in February 2008, is the industry’s first and only enterprise-class server to provide dynamic hardware partitioning for Microsoft® Windows® Server 2008 and Microsoft SQL Server® 2008. Building on Microsoft’s “Always On” data center program, this functionality is the first to deliver “on demand” performance for Windows Server 2008 by supporting “hot add” of physical processing resources without loss of operating system or application state. Through the “hot replace” of processing and I/O subsystems, without loss of operating system or application state, Dynamic Partitioning allows Windows Server 2008 to eliminate planned hardware maintenance.

A modular storage array that offers high availability with linear scalability of performance and capacity, the D-Series can start as small as 300GB and scale to over 1.5 petabytes, all non-destructively. D-Series arrays offer the full range of enterprise software options, including replication, snapshots, energy conservation and compliance.
