Hitachi Unified Storage VM Flash -- Datasheet

  1. 1. Hitachi Unified Storage VM all flash system: • All-flash performance. • Unified ready. • Enterprise-virtualization capable. Transform Virtualization Economics Reliable Trusted Innovate Informa- tion Global Change Intelligent Technology Services Value Insight Op- portunity Social Infrastructure Integrate Analyze Discover Competitive DATASHEET Drive Maximum Performance and Reduce Storage Costs Hitachi Unified Storage VM (HUS VM) all flash system is designed for organizations that seek to accelerate the performance of their business applications. With integrated Hitachi Accelerated Flash and enterprise storage virtualization, HUS VM delivers faster access to information and increased efficiency through central management of all storage assets. Database, analyt- ics, virtual desktop and virtualized server environments benefit from superior perfor- mance and improved response times. Flash technology has become more per- vasive in the data center over the past few years as IT practitioners seek to provide the competitive business advantages of real- time computing. However, its widespread adoption as a mainstream storage option has been hampered by high costs, limited endurance and sub-optimal write perfor- mance. IT organizations have been forced to make tradeoffs in performance, capacity and functionality to reach the cost points that their shrinking budgets can accommodate. Hitachi Accelerated Flash fundamentally Hitachi Unified Storage VM: All Flash System changes this model by eliminating these tradeoffs and answering demands for high capacity, performance and advanced functionality with increased durability. Hitachi Accelerated Flash delivers the performance, cost points, capacity and environmental characteristics desired that alternative solid-state storage options cannot match. Hitachi Accelerated Flash features the new flash module built specifically for the most demanding enterprise-class workloads. Developed originally for the premier enter- prise Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform, it is now available for HUS VM. Hitachi Accelerated Flash features innovative Hitachi-developed embedded flash memory controller technology. It is designed to achieve higher performance, increased dura- bility and greater capacity compared to the commodity solid-state drives found in com- petitive systems. Hitachi flash acceleration software speeds I/O processing to increase flash device throughput. Hitachi Accelerated Flash storage modules fit into a 2U flash chassis. Each enclosure holds 12 flash modules to scale up to 19.2TB of flash storage. 1.6TB flash mod- ules provide 4 times greater density than the largest solid-state disk available today. Up to 8 flash enclosures can be housed in HUS VM, enabling more than 150TB of flash per system. You can confidently address the most demanding performance work- loads while maintaining the same storage management environment, external storage virtualization support, superior uptime and advanced functionality you are accustomed to from Hitachi. To provide you with even more capacity cost savings, Hitachi Accelerated Flash is fully compatible with all HUS VM features, includ- ing Hitachi Dynamic Tiering for creating tiers of storage. This capability lets the system automatically optimize data placement by putting the most active data on Hitachi Accelerated Flash when the highest perfor- mance is required, and placing less-active data on cost-optimized, lower performance disk. Thin provisioning is included to reduce capacity requirements by increasing utiliza- tion of your storage. Hitachi Unified Storage VM all flash system is also capable of unifying all data types so you can achieve key business benefits and gain valuable functionality. Now each data type can be provisioned, managed and archived throughout its lifecycle, con- sistently and efficiently. HUS VM promotes
