Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform: Software-Defined Storage

Software-defined storage—which Hitachi defines as virtualized storage resources that deliver consistent, automated data services to all applications—plays an essential role in enabling an efficient software-defined data center. Now, with Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform* (Hitachi VSP), the benefits of software-defined storage, including enterprise-class storage virtualization, are available to any organization.

Hitachi VSP comprises a family of compatible software-defined storage solutions, from mid-range to scalable enterprise systems. Powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, all systems run the same software based on Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System* (Hitachi SVOS), so they all provide the same management, virtualization, migration, and data protection features. This means  businesses can choose the right entry point based on size and price, and expand as their needs grow. With Hitachi VSP, IT groups can:

  • Increase overall agility while reducing operational cost and untangling management complexity.
  • Quickly deliver automated services including storage virtualization, tiering, and high availability.
  • Simplify administration and increase utilization with unified management of all storage assets, including systems from multiple manufacturers.
  • Accelerate deployment of virtualized infrastructure through integration with leading business applications and server virtualization software.
