Hitachi Data Systems Corporation Key Developments

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation's Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000 with Hitachi Accelerated Flash Achieves an SPC-1 Result

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation announced that Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000 with Hitachi Accelerated Flash achieved an SPC-1 Result that dramatically exceeded any prior submission of the real-world emulating SPC-1 benchmark-piercing the two million SPC-1 IOPS ceiling for the first time, while maintaining sub-millisecond latency. Built specifically for the most demanding enterprise-class workloads in both standalone and converged environments, the Hitachi VSP G1000 all-flash configuration allows organizations to maximize return on their investments in flash technology, delivering predictable, low latency response, while accelerating application performance, maximizing server virtualization environments, and enabling extreme-performance private cloud deployments. Given the abundance of often unsubstantiated vendor claims regarding storage-performance, Hitachi is proud to provide audited, third-party performance results so customers can better plan, build and manage high-performance environments. SPC-1 performance testing is designed to demonstrate a system's performance capabilities for workloads such as business critical applications and OLTP environments. Achieving an SPC-1 Result of 2,004,941.89 SPC-1 IOPS, an all-flash VSP G1000 leapt to the front of the performance pack with more than 60% greater throughput and one-third the full-load response time of even specialized, niche DRAM-based systems. Against typical enterprise competition, not only was the system significantly faster, but it was the first enterprise storage system to achieve SPC-1 Price-Performance of $1.00/SPC-1 IOPS. To better understand the VSP G1000 hardware and Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System (SVOS) functional capabilities, other third-party assessments are necessary. Gartner provides such analysis within its Critical Capabilities for General-Purpose, High-End Storage Arrays). For the second year in a row, Hitachi VSP technology tied for the overall product score for every analyzed use-case, including overall, consolidation, OLTP, server virtualization and VDI, analytics and cloud.

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation Simplifies the Journey to the Software-Defined Data Center with Support for VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation announced early support of VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes, simplifying customers' cloud journey and extending the value of Hitachi's rich infrastructure solutions. The combination of vSphere Virtual Volumes policy based automation and the trusted, high-performance infrastructure solutions from Hitachi Data Systems provides the continuous infrastructure foundation customers can build upon with confidence. Building on a deep history of VMware support, HDS worked closely with VMware as a partner to be among the first storage providers to deliver the full benefits of vSphere Virtual Volumes and extend that functionality with the unique capabilities of high-performance Hitachi storage systems to mutual customers. Customers deploying vSphere Virtual Volumes can look forward to the proven functionality, performance and reliability as the bedrock for advanced private and hybrid cloud deployments. The important new VMware framework will be implemented across a variety of Hitachi Data Systems offerings, including its Hitachi NAS Platform and Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform family of storage systems. This adds to a long list of VMware API and application support Hitachi Data Systems currently offers. With customers increasingly looking to deploy converged infrastructure solutions, they can look forward to the benefits of this integration with Hitachi Unified Compute Platform, and advanced Unified Compute Platform Director integration with VMware vCenter. The powerful combination of storage solutions, deep converged infrastructure management and Hitachi Data Systems vSphere Virtual Volumes implementation will reduce storage management overhead and increase IT efficiency.
