Hitachi redefines unified storage systems with Hitachi Unified Storage. With trusted Hitachi reliability, it helps you meet your requirements for application availability and performance with lower investment. Deploy storage for all data types and easily grow to meet expanding requirements and service level objectives for critical business applications. Hitachi Unified Storage 100 simplifies operations with easy-to-use management. It is part of a robust portfolio of storage solutions that can be managed from a single interface for optimal management efficiency.
Features and benefits:
- Comprehensive and integrated management for block, file and object data.
- High-density storage, which reduces consumption of data center floor space.
- Automated data management with dynamic provisioning, dynamic load balancing, and auto-tiering.
- Scale capacity, performance, file systems, and volumes further.
- Further scaling of capacity, performance, file systems, and volumes.
- Deduplication reduces capacity needs.
Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS) 100 family is an evolution in universally managing block, file and object data (with Hitachi Content Platform), without compromising performance, scalability or cost efficiency. A highly efficient unified architecture allows organizations to satisfy growth requirements and meet business goals while simplifying operations. They can reduce the total cost structure and quickly adapt to changing storage environments. When combined with Hitachi Command Suite management software, HUS enables optimized and agile data infrastructure.
HUS 100 family provides a balanced approach to scalability that extends investments further. Capacity of a single system can grow to nearly 4PB, while performance can increase linearly and to industry-leading heights. Scale the capacity of data sets with megaLUNs up to 128TB and fi systems up to 256TB. Remotely copy all data without limits. Remotely copy all data without limits.
HUS 100 family provides the fastest mid-range storage systems available today for both block and file access, enabling organizations to achieve performance goals at the lowest possible price. High-end storage functionality, such as auto-tiering, is available with HUS to facilitate automated placement of data for the highest performance at the lowest cost. Thin provisioning and data deduplication are included for proven capacity optimization solutions.
Now all data can be provisioned, managed and archived throughout its lifecycle, consistently and efficiently. HUS promotes faster and easier provisioning of storage for both block and file requirements within virtualized environments, and it provides application-aware data protection for both virtualized and nonvirtualized server environments.
Block storage is accomplished through high-performance, dynamic virtual controllers that simplify provisioning, path management and performance optimization. HUS uses Hitachi Dynamic Provisioning to pool file and block storage with maximum flexibility. File storage relies on a unique, hardware- accelerated, object-based file system. It uses custom FPGAs, which support intelligent file tiering and migration, and virtual NAS functionality, without impeding performance or scalability.
HUS is built on legendary Hitachi reliability for at least 99.999% data availability requirements, with complete system redundancy, hot-swappable parts, out- standing data protection and dynamic virtual controllers. Intelligent automation for failover, load balancing, tiering and migration keeps storage operations up and running at optimal performance. Additional data recovery and protection tools allow for application-aware recovery, simpler backup, restore, failover and consistency across copies, reducing business risk, downtime and migration concerns.
HUS supports myriad operating systems, data types and storage and server environments. It provides integrated solutions for Microsoft®, VMware and Oracle environments.
