Hitachi All-Flash Storage

Hitachi Data Systems

Compete and win with fast flash storage

Access data faster, accelerate applications, consolidate data, reduce capex and opex, and increase application service levels with flash storage from Hitachi.

Get Faster Insight, Make Better Decisions

Rapid access to data keeps you ahead of competitors

  • Faster access to data means you can bring products and services to market faster and recognize customer needs before they inhibit business growth
  • With more information you make better decisions that drive innovation, identify trends, predict market changes and accelerate time to market
  • Use Quality of Service controls to ensure a balanced approach to performance delivery

Optimise Your Flash Performance

Capacity efficiency when you want it, maximum performance where you need it

  • Consolidate applications and reduce footprint with up to 1M IOPS and 384TB of effective capacity
  • User-selectable data reduction services give you the flexibility to achieve the right balance of performance and storage efficiency
  • Get up and running with Hitachi Flash Storage in minutes and easily manage ongoing operations

Benefits

High Performance

Deliver Faster I/O and Better Responsiveness

  • Accelerate Virtualised Servers and Desktops: Eliminate performance bottlenecks from boot storms and I/O blenders with fast and consistent response times.
  • Improve Customer Service: With faster access to vital information, your staff can provide customers with the rapid support required by today’s business.
  • Gain a Competitive Advantage: With high-speed performance you can run real-time analytics to gain fast insights and get products and services to market faster than competitors.

Greater Efficiency

Reduce Space, Increase Utilization With All-Flash Systems

  • Minimise Your Floor Space Consumption: Hitachi Flash Storage can hold up to 384TB of effective capacity and deliver up to 1M IOPS.
  • Increase Your Effective Capacity: Selectable data de-duplication and compression can give you up to 5 times more effective capacity.
  • Virtualise Your Flash: Deploy a space- and capacity-efficient tier of Hitachi Flash Storage virtualised and managed by a Virtual Storage Platform.

Improved Economics

Lower Capital and Operating Cost

  • Reduce Cost Per I/O and Decrease Power, Cooling and Space Costs: All-flash storage lowers expenses by reducing the number of disk drives and required rack space, and extends the life of existing assets.
  • Increase Capacity With Advanced Functionality: Dynamic tiering, thin provisioning, and file de-duplication enhance flash storage efficiency and lower costs by eliminating redundant file data.

Features

Data de-duplication and compression

Realise and average of 5:1 capacity savings by reducing data before it is written to the SSDs. Optional tuning of de-duplication block sizes is available to balance data reduction rates with performance.

Thin provisioning

Save even more space by allocating capacity on demand from a pool of logical volumes.

Snapshots and clones

Protect data with up to 64 copy-on-write snapshots that can be created per logical volume. Full clones of logical volumes can also be created.

Remote replication

Logical volumes can be copied to a second HFS system with either asynchronous or synchronous writes.

Quality-of-service controls

Maximum IOPS and bandwidth consumption can be set for logical volumes to minimise contention for system resources.
