The high-capacity rack server
NEC Express5800/R120g-2E(Storage-Rich)
Key Features
• Support for the latest Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 product family
• Up to 1 TB of high speed DDR4 memory
• 5 PCIe slots for various needs and future expansion
• Agent-less management with improved EXPRESSCOPE
Engine 3
• Wide range of operating ambient temperature from 5 to 40°C
(41 to 104°F)
The Express5800/R120g-2E, a cost-effective dual-socket 2U rack server,
is a right-sized server with the performance, expandability, and reliability
to meet the requirements of storage-intensive workloads. Combining the
new high-performance and energy efficient Intel ® Xeon ® E5-2600 v4
product family, large memory and storage capacity, and high
performance RAID controller supporting large cache memory and 12
Gbps SAS interface, the R120g-2E is suitable for network attached
storage and data backup servers.
Perfect Fit for Your Storage Needs
Cost Savings Through Efficiency
To meet the current data growth, data centers need cost-effective
NEC’s innovative green design concepts and industry leading fan control
data protection features. With up to two 12-core Intel® Xeon® E5- 2600
(104°F), therefore reducing cooling requirements. In addition, dual hot
storage solutions that provide superior expendably, performance, and
v4 processors, 16 DIMM slots for DDR4-2400 memory, a choice of 24
2.5-inch drives or 12 3.5-inch drives, and various redundant capabilities,
the R120g-2E delivers the optimal balance of performance and features
to meet your storage needs.
Expandability for Data Growth
The Express5800/R120g-2E offers superior expandability to keep pace
with your data growth. With two integrated gigabit NICs, four PCIe Gen3
and one PCIe Gen2 slots, up to 1 TB of memory capacity, 76 TB of
storage capacity, and redundant storage options, the R120g-2E offers
flexible network connectivity, superior storage expandability, and secure
data protection.
technology allows the R120g-2E to operate at temperatures up to 40°C
plug power supplies with cold-standby mode enable further energy
Manage easy setup and deployment with NEC EXPRESSBUILDER and
leverage easy management with NEC’s EXPRESSSCOPE Engine 3
together with NEC ESMPRO. The extensive remote management
capabilities untangle the complexities in operating and maintaining the
server to alleviate the burden of administrative tasks.
