  • Hitachi Unified Storage VM All Flash System Comparative Guide Comparative Guide Helps Identify Requirements and Accelerate Business Goals Today’s enterprises face a wide range of flash storage options that offer clear benefits over traditional storage systems for many use cases. While flash-based storage solutions can help organizations improve performance and efficiency and lower costs, the capabilities of these systems can widely vary. Hitachi de- veloped this guide to compare available ben- efits and identify the solution that best meets current and future storage requirements. OVERVIEW Choose the Best All Flash Unified Storage Solution for Your Virtualization Needs FLASH
  • OVERVIEW The Hitachi Unified Storage VM All Flash Comparative Guide illustrates the strength of Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS) VM all flash system relative to comparable models available today. Based on specifications, features, management and upgrades, HUS VM all flash system offers clear IT and business advantages, including: ■■ 500,000 IOPS and sub- millisecond response time, consistent performance ■■ Up to 380,000 IOPS for file sharing over NFS1 ■■ 60% better cost per IO than similar disk-based systems— with less space and power Comparative Overview of Entry-Level Enterprise All Flash Unified Storage Models Scalable capacity Hitachi Unified Storage VM NetApp EF540 EMC XtremIO Nimbus Data Violin Memory IBM FlashSystem 720/820 Pure Storage Nimble Storage Performance tuning and analytics Public performance benchmarks Automated storage tiering Intelligent file tiering Data deduplication Data compression Thin provisioning Multiprotocol connectivity Scalable file system Single namespace Data replication across distance External storage virtualization 100% data availability guarantee Online updates and serviceability Host transparent data migration Encryption Ease of management through a single interface VMware integration Application plug-ins Application-aware snap management Snapshots and clones Unified file, block and object data Reference architectures and best practices Upgradable to tiered storage OVERVIEW COMPARISON OF ALL FLASH-STORAGE STORAGE MODELS FEATURES HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 Ideal Adequate None This chart provides a comparative overview only of all flash storage models. 1 Using SPECsfs 2008 NFS benchmarks for 4X Hitachi NAS model 3090
  • 3 ■■ 50% less administrative effort to save time and improve productivity ■■ 100% availability guarantee to lower risk and ensure data availability ■■ 90% less refresh effort to accelerate innovation and business productivity ■■ Higher flash density and capacity than comparable SSD configurations Double the Performance of Disk-Based Systems HUS VM all flash system doubles the performance of hard disk-based systems and dramatically lowers response times. This system employs newly patented flash-optimized software and Hitachi Accelerated Flash storage which deliver 500,000 IOPS, sub-millisecond response time with consistent performance. Compared to the commodity solid-state drives found in competitive systems, the flash memory design that Hitachi developed for Hitachi Accelerated Flash storage provides better perfor- mance, durability and capacity. Hitachi Accelerated Flash storage speeds IO processing to increase flash device throughput. It delivers faster access to data for virtual desktop and e-com- merce applications. And it accelerates database, online transaction and ana- lytic processing (OLTP and OLAP) and messaging infrastructure performance. Dramatically Improve Storage Economics By doubling the performance of disk- based systems, HUS VM all flash system eliminates the need to over- buy and overarchitect to meet the requirements of high-performance applications. HUS VM all flash system also delivers a 60% better cost per I/O than similar solid state drive-based systems, and it does so in less space. While the cost per I/O makes flash a logical choice for many organiza- tions, maximizing the benefits of your flash purchase is critical for the best return on investment. With Hitachi Dynamic Tiering and thin provision- ing, you can allocate more bandwidth than you use in flash and copy, with- out incurring capacity overhead. To achieve even greater flash efficiency, you can add file deduplication to your organization’s unified system. As the only all flash array with external storage virtualization capability, you can add HUS VM all flash into an overtaxed environment of older HDS or 3rd party storage and see immediate manage- ment and utilization benefits. Support for tiering to external storage enables companies to ensure their most impor- tant data sits in new flash capacity and extends the life of existing assets. Boost Storage and Management Efficiency and Flexibility In addition to improving performance and economics, HUS VM all flash system boosts storage efficiency by consolidating all data types in a high-performance, unified system. The all flash system doubles the den- sity of the solid state-drive-based HUS VM, in the same rack space. To boost management efficiency, HUS VM all flash system is supported by Hitachi Command Suite, which auto- mates and simplifies management tasks for HDS solutions. This means administrators won’t have to learn a TOP 10 REASONS TO CONSIDER HITACHI UNIFIED STORAGE VM ALL FLASH SYSTEM. According to IDC, “For enter- prise customers, flash storage changes everything. It perma- nently transforms the speed of business and it makes real-time an expectation, not an aspira- tion.”2 Here are 10 reasons your organization should consider HUS VM all flash system to deliver on the real-time promise: 1. Blazing performance 2. Superior economics 3. Seamless integration 4. Unmatched reliability 5. Supreme flexibility 6. Unified management 7. Remarkable efficiency 8. Virtualize and turbocharge 9. Portfolio breadth 10. Here today, here tomorrow 2 Janukowicz, Jeff, and Dan Iacono. IDC. Delivering Customer Value with Enterprise Flash Deployments. February, 2013.
