VSP 5000 Base Software Package
This base software package comes standard with the VSP 5000 series. It combines the core Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System RF (SVOS RF) with the Hitachi Vantara Ops Center management suite to maximize the return on your IT investments, while safeguarding against data loss and downtime.
SVOS RF: Improve Resilience, Efficiency and Agility
This flash-optimized, multithread storage operating system powers all Hitachi VSP storage systems. SVOS RF comprises key technologies for enterprise data management, including thin provisioning, adaptive data reduction, and Hitachi Dynamic Tiering (HDT) which integrates SVOS RF for superior flash performance and application availability.
Local Replication: Protect and Accelerate Business
Hitachi Local Replication provides snapshots and local mirroring to protect and accelerate copy creation and use. Snapshots create space-efficient, point-in-time backups to protect against data loss. Local mirroring increases protection by creating a secondary copy of data on the array. To accelerate business use, snapshots can be cloned for business reporting, dev/test, and rapid system roll-out.
Data Mobility: Optimize Performance and Efficiency
Hitachi Data Mobility with Hitachi Dynamic Tiering software can automatically and transparently move data across storage tiers, maximizing application performance while minimizing costs. Support for different storage media, configurations, and virtualized third-party arrays lets you meet a broad range of price-performance objectives and easily migrate off older, slower storage arrays. Non-disruptive migration enables the rapid transition from older to newer Hitachi storage without interrupting hosts.
Universal Volume Manager: Storage Virtualization
Hitachi Universal Volume Manager enables you to connect volumes in external storage systems to your storage system and manage those volumes as if they were one system. Using storage virtualization allows SVOS to consolidate and virtualize over 100 different types of storage arrays for superior IT efficiency.
