The Hitachi Vantara VSP 5000 series storage is a next-generation infrastructure offering designed to provide a modern foundation for digital transformation and data center modernization. VSP is designed to be the highest performance, scalable and resilient data storage platform on the market.
The Hitachi Accelerated Fabric allows Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System RF (SVOS RF) to offload I/O traffic as you scale out your data platform, delivering up to 33 million IOPS with latency as low as 39 microseconds. Mixing NVMe and SAS flash and HDD together allows you to get the most economic $/GB rates available up to 69PB of capacity.
We offer two models of the 5000 series block storage platform. Start small with a VSP 5200 and then easily scale-up and out to a full-blown VSP 5600 with 12 active/active controllers.
The VSP 5000 series is built on self-optimizing and self-protecting true scale-out technology, and resources can failover across node controllers, across nodes, and across the controller blocks that include storage media. Storage Virtualization Operating System RF (SVOS RF) provides Adaptive Data Reduction (ADR) to maximize every GB of storage with greatly improved scalability and performance and can virtualize the capacity stored in Hitachi or 3rd party storage arrays, extending the life of those arrays by providing next-generation data services and data reduction capabilities to legacy storage arrays.
Resiliency and Availability
While VSP 5600 delivers 8’ 9;s of availability, all our VSP arrays are backed by Hitachi’s 100% Data Availability guarantee. Our 100% data availability ensures that our customers meet information availability requirements. Hitachi storage systems are engineered to have an active/active architecture with no single points of failure and multiple levels of redundancy. We build them with the latest in proactive alerts to resolve issues before they become outages and conduct extensive quality assurance tests prior to release.
The enterprise-level VSP 5000 series start as small as 3.8TB and grows to 69PB of raw capacity. With scalability to handle up to 33 million IOPS, multiple application workloads can be consolidated for cost savings. All models in the VSP 5000 series are backed by the industry’s most comprehensive 100% data availability guarantee to ensure that your operations are always up and running. Hitachi Remote Ops monitoring system and Hitachi Ops Center Analyzer enable industry-leading uptime.
Our products provide a comprehensive set of data services, including in-system/local/remote replication, clones, snapshots, thin provisioning, deduplication, compression, tiered storage management, and data mobility across the Hitachi VSP platform family while supporting all the major host operating systems.
Integrated Management and Security
Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform with SVOS storage virtualization OS and Ops Center management suite enable a common data infrastructure architecture for simplified data management and self-driving storage operations to lower costs. With AI Ops insights, Hitachi storage software can enable orchestrated IT resource delivery with automated provisioning workflows and integrated analytics to optimize application to storage resources (VM, server, network, storage) to greatly improve IT operational efficiencies. Utilize built-in cyber resiliency capabilities with enterprise-class immutable data storage and protection features to properly protect all Hitachi virtualized storage assets from ransomware attacks.
To further eliminate risk of downtime or data loss, we offer a superior range of business continuity and recovery options including:
When capacity is difficult to accurately forecast or if operational efficiency needs to be at its peak on day one, the pay per use pricing model and services of Hitachi EverFlex can help. Every product, solution or offering from Hitachi Vantara is offered via EverFlex. With options to choose either pre-engineered, pre-designed and fully integrated solutions, or choosing a more custom designed one to meet unique and specific requirements, EverFlex provides the most choice in pay-per-use consumption to align costs with usage, lower acquisition and operational costs and improve service delivery to a business.
Storage as a Service
Gain cloud economics and adaptability for your distributed workloads driving better business results with this service. Storage as a Service from Hitachi Vantara offers ease of deployment, and simplicity of control. The service enables customers to quickly access infrastructure services by reducing complex procurement and deployment cycles.
Non-Disruptive Upgrades with Modern Storage Assurance
Our Modern Storage Assurance program eliminates complicated data migration and forklift upgrades with data-in-place migration with the ability to upgrade within 1-5 years to accelerate applications with the next generation storage architecture. This full data-in-place non-disruptive upgrade to our next generation data platform is available with each purchase made.
All VSP data storage services, as defined above, are licensed as part of either the Hitachi VSP Foundation or Advanced software packages. Since the VSP arrays are sold in an appliance form factor, the software is not purchased separately from the hardware.
