The new all-flash Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) F series, enhanced models of the Hitachi VSP G series, next-generation Hitachi flash modules with inline data compression (FMD DC2) and enhanced Hitachi Automation Director and Hitachi Data Center Analytics tools for improved response times and greater effective capacity.
Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform F Series
New additions to the industry-leading Hitachi VSP family – the VSP F400, F600 and F800 – bring together all-flash storage and the simplicity of built-in automation software with the proven resiliency and performance of Hitachi VSP technology. The VSP F series offers an unparalleled 1.4M IOPS to meet the most demanding application requirements and leverages new FMD DC2 (flash modules) to provide inline, no penalty compression for increased effective capacity that keeps latency < 1ms, even at maximum scale.
The VSP F series is the industry’s most resilient all-flash array and offers the industry’s only 100 percent data availability guarantee. Easy-to-use replication management is included with the F series with optional synchronous and asynchronous replication available for complete data protection. The F series ranges in effective storage capacity from 12.8TB up to 448TB and provides customers with an all-flash solution that works seamlessly with other Hitachi infrastructure products through common management software and rich automation tools not available with niche products.
The Hitachi VSP G series has also been enhanced through leveraging the FMD DC2 for better response times, effective capacity and return on investment.
Second Generation Flash Module Drive with Data Compression (FMD DC2)
Leveraging the new FMD DC2 drives that are the foundation of the VSP F series, the enhanced VSP G series can now deliver improved response times, effective flash capacity and return on investment. The Hitachi FMD DC2 patented design leverages a high speed, parallelized architecture that delivers up to five times more write IOPS and three times more read IOPS than standard solid state drives (SSDs). It also includes robust multi-queuing technology that allows IO to be prioritized over background operations for superior low latency, even under heavy load.
The FMD DC2 is available now in capacities up to 6.4TB and brings with it penalty-free, inline compression.
Enhanced Hitachi Automation Director Software
Through predefined service templates and automated management workflows, Hitachi Automation Director empowers end users with self-service provisioning of flash storage to accelerate, simplify and streamline the deployment of new applications and resources faster.
