Hitachi Data Systems Ships Flash Storage

Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., announced the next generation of its Storage Virtualization Operating System, SVOS 7.0, featuring enhanced Quality of Service, new adaptive data reduction and support for all-flash cloud tiering. It will be available on all Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) arrays.

With this release, HDS is also upgrading its enterprise VSP line. The all-flash VSP F series line is expanding to include the all-flash VSP F1500. Built on new, high-density Flash Module technology with capacities of up to 14TB per device, the new VSP F1500 delivers over 4.8M IOPS and up to 40PB of effective flash capacity. Delivering superior price/performance value, the VSP F1500 is designed for enterprise customers looking to drive massive IT consolidation across block, file and mainframe operations.

For businesses looking to transition to all-flash over time, HDS offers the new VSP G1500. The VSP G1500 offers 4.8M IOPS, a 20% improvement over the current VSP G1000, and runs individual workloads up to 40% faster.

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