5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

ComputerWire: IT Industry Intelligence

NEC Corp has announced the launch of a new Data Storage Division that will sell a range of items of its own manufacture through channel partners in the UK.

The UK arm of the Tokyo, Japan-based company will sell a range of hardware products through its Data Division. It will concentrate initially on the personal computer end of the storage arena with a range removable media drives, including the slimline combination DVD-RW and CD-RW aimed at the laptop market.

It has plans to move into the enterprise space over time, according to commercial manager, Andrew Wyllie. Its only current offerings here are its own-manufacture LTO Ultrium tape drive and a 10-tape auto-loader for the same with 2TB maximum capacity. However, future plans include products for the SAN and NAS markets.

Its distribution model will be through channel partners that will include medium-sized rather than large distributors and systems integrators. Some of these will use the NEC badge on the products while others will use their own. The model is based on the one successfully used for a number of years by the German distribution arm of NEC to sell its storage.
