Dell EMC NX Windows NAS Series

Dell EMC NX Windows NAS Series storage appliances combine the latest Dell EMC PowerEdge technology with Windows Storage Server 2016 from Microsoft for rapid deployment, easy management, and enhanced performance.

The Dell EMC NX Windows NAS Series is an affordable storage solution for customers who want the simplicity of Microsoft Windows Server together with the power of Dell EMC servers and storage - all in a ready-to-deploy NAS appliance.

New storage innovations from Microsoft

All Dell EMC NX Windows NAS Series storage appliances ship with Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2016 preinstalled for fast and easy deployment. Based on Windows Server 2016, Windows Storage Server 2016 Standard includes all of the major storage innovations in Microsoft’s latest server operating system:

  • Storage-agnostic, block-level, synchronous replication between servers or clusters
  • Enhancements to Storage quality of service (QoS), data deduplication and ReFS


Efficient dedicated data sharing

This entry-level, file-sharing system, based on the latest server technology, is easy to manage with its integration of Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2016 (Standard Edition and Workgroup Edition). This specialized operating system helps control growing storage demands by making file storage more efficient than previous generation solutions.

Maintaining productivity is essential for any business, so NX430 offers disparate users simplified access to files and shares across a network-wide infrastructure, even to remote offices. File shares are easy to locate and resilient.

NX430 with Windows Storage Server 2016 (WSS2016) helps eliminate data clutter by identifying duplicate files, storing one copy and replacing others with pointers.1 It also has a single management interface that delivers improved managed file services across CIFS/NFS, and offers improved control and compliance over files, ideal for audit and planning purposes.

Room to grow your business

Dell Storage NX430’s efficient file sharing is packaged in a small, 1U form factor, allowing extra room in your rack for other systems and components. Plus, its maximum 40TB capacity allows plenty of space to grow files and shares - designed so you have room to grow your business.

Simple deployment and management

Avoid the hassle of building a file server from scratch. Dell Storage NX430 is optimized for storing, sharing, and protecting files, and is integrated and ready to go out of the box. In fact, the NX430 can be ready to share files within minutes.

Take full advantage of the Initial Configuration Tasks wizard to streamline the setup process. Also, there is no need to buy additional Client-Access Licenses (CALs) for each user you add to your NX430. Support for multiple users is already built into this file-sharing system.

Put the latest storage technology to work for you

Dell integrates the best of our PowerEdge servers with Windows latest Storage Server operating system, designed to improve reliability and performance. WSS2016 enables the Server Message Block 3.0 (SMB3.0) protocol, whichcan improve performance with multichannel failover, and is designed to increase the reliability of application specific capabilities for Microsoft SQL Server and Hyper-V.

Thin provisioning, deduplication and compression provides additional data management optimization by optimizing capacity allocation on the NAS. For remote offices, the new BranchCache feature improves branch office connectivity on low-speed, high-latency links.

Windows Storage Server 2016 features

A new feature in Windows Storage Server 2016 is called Work Folders. This feature allows you to bring-yourown-device (BYOD) so you can access work files from your personal computer or device, while keeping your organization’s data safe through centralized controls, encryption and lock screen passwords.

Additionally there are new Storage Spaces functions that include storage tiering, SSD write-back cache, parity storage spaces on failover clusters, dual parity storage spaces, and faster recovery. An improved Storage Management API adds cluster awareness and remote management for these new Storage Spaces features.

WSS2016 also enhances several of the current WSS2016 features, such as SMB protocol, iSCSI target, DFS replication, deduplication. Changes to failover clustering and enhanced support for Hyper-V have made it faster and easier to implement continuous availability.
