Hitachi Data Systems Introduces New, Enhanced Flash Storage Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) Lineup

Oct 26, 2016 - :

In today’s digital economy, it is critical that customers receive information in real time and that businesses recognize maximum cost-efficiency from their operations. To meet these needs, Hitachi Data Systems today announced an expanded Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) lineup, powered by next generation Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System (SVOS) and backed by a 100% data availability guarantee.

The expanded VSP lineup is designed to deliver better customer experiences and return on investments and deliver performance, resiliency and workload scalability beyond what is offered by other platforms. The new SVOS 7 has been engineered with an improved flash-aware I/O stack and selectable data services, including enhanced QoS, new adaptive data reduction and support for all-flash cloud tiering. SVOS 7 is available on all new and existing Virtual Storage Platform G series and F series systems. Existing customers can take advantage of SVOS 7 and its deduplication and compression features through a nondisruptive upgrade.

HDS is offering two new high-end VSP models. The all-flash VSP F1500 is built on new high-density FMDs with raw capacities of up to 14TB, and for businesses looking to transition to all-flash over time, HDS offers the new VSP G1500, which offers 4.8M IOPS - a 20% improvement over VSP G1000.

In conjunction with the release of SVOS 7 and the enhanced VSP lineup, HDS is upgrading its management stack to simplify data management. New versions of Hitachi Storage Advisor, Automation Director and Infrastructure Analytics Advisor enable customers to more easily implement new SVOS 7 functions and reduce IT operational costs and complexity.
