GR700 (3 units from left), NR1000 (2 units from right)
The GR700 disk array unit, for UNIX servers such as Fujitsu’s GP7000 and Windows NT servers such as the GRANPOWER5000, was released in 1998. The NR1000 disk array unit, for UNIX servers and Windows NT servers from various companies, was also released in the same year. Open systems such as UNIX and Windows NT were coming to play important roles as information systems in companies, and the volumes of data handled were increasing rapidly due to the advancement of network use. These models made it possible for users to select disk array units which were aligned to the scale and purposes of their own systems.
