Trusted Capabilities That Won’t Break the Bank

Can your IT infrastructure team keep up with the demands of a distributed workforce and data hungry applications? If you are overwhelmed by maintenance tasks and struggling to deliver IT projects fast enough, because you’re continually challenged to be agile and “do more with less,” it’s time to rethink data storage.

With the Hitachi VSP E series (E590, E790 and E990), we provide agile and automated storage built upon the innovative technologies found in our high-end enterprise systems. Now all businesses can deliver exemplary service levels, data security, and cloud services enabling the acceleration of cloud-native application development and migration. With Hitachi Vantara VSP storage, businesses of any size can enjoy the same peace of mind and application availability that the largest enterprises in the world rely on.

These systems enable you to cost-effectively meet your current digital expectations and scale to address future challenges as application data needs and service levels evolve. With time-tested, proven availability and scalability, we deliver infrastructure solutions that help you maximize your data center advantage.

Give your growing business the performance that large enterprises rely on to satisfy the demands of real-time, data-hungry applications. VSP E series architecture is designed with a true symmetrical active-active controller designed to deliver consistent, industry-leading, low-microsecond latency. This advanced architecture reduces the transaction costs of latency-critical applications and delivers predictable performance to optimize storage resources.

Flexible data management options allow you to evolve as your business grows. Use the E series embedded management for simplified system configuration and setup, ideal for single system environments, or choose Hitachi’s Ops Center management for comprehensive administration, analytics, automation and data protection capabilities across the entire E series and VSP families.

Take advantage of the advanced capabilities in the VSP E series across all your data center storage assets through virtualization pioneered by Hitachi. Storage virtualization gives you a common management control point for multiple storage systems, which drives increased administrative efficiencies. Data services, like data reduction, automation, and metro clustering, that are available with VSP E series are extended to virtualized storage systems to give them more value and an extended life cycle.

Proven. Powerful. Predictable.

Organizations trust Hitachi Vantara with their most important business asset: data. They know our storage solutions are fail-safe. Hitachi storage platforms are time tested, with proven performance, reliability and scalability.

Enterprise Agility

Building upon our successful portfolio of data solutions, the VSP E series is powered by the same Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System RF (SVOS RF) operating system that protects our largest customers. With all VSP models sharing a common SVOS RF operating system, you can manage and replicate your data between any VSP system and avoid creating silos of data.

Class leading latency of less than 66µS drives efficiencies and stellar customer experiences throughout your business while the 2 rack unit E590 and E790 deliver massive consolidation of mission-critical workloads which means considerable cost savings. VSP E series gives your growing business the performance that large enterprises have relied on for decades to satisfy the demands of your real-time, data hungry applications.

With intelligence designed into our adaptive data reduction technology, you can run data reduction and be assured of optimized performance and efficiency. With our proven data reduction capabilities, VSP E series allows organizations to make effective use of our 4:1 sight-unseen effective capacity guarantee plus our 7:1 total efficiency guarantee across a variety of media options.

Choice of NVMe, Hybrid-Flash and All-Flash in a Single Family

As workloads increase and data levels grow, it is important for storage to deliver scalable performance, capacity and storage efficiency. VSP E series offers you a single architecture to match all your business and workload requirements. Our all-NVMe flash solutions deliver super charged, ultra-low latency performance that small, midsized and enterprise businesses need to accelerate and consolidate their business applications. VSP E Series all-flash and hybrid-flash solu¬tions extract the maximum performance and capacity value from applications. These solutions are agile enough to support traditional data center workloads, cloud initiatives, containerized applications, and even utility consumption models that reduce upfront costs.

Legendary Hitachi Resilience

VSP E series builds on 58 years of proven Hitachi engineering experience, offering you a superior range of business continuity options that provide the best reliability in the industry. We back this up with the industry’s first and most comprehensive 100% data availability guarantee. As a result, 87% of Fortune 100 financial services companies trust Hitachi Vantara storage systems with their mission critical data.

The VSP E series innovative active-active controller architecture protects your business against local faults while mitigating performance issues. In addition, enterprise-class metro clustering is also available with our Global-Active device solution which provides synchronous replication between data centers up to 500km apart. For even more protection and data mobility, you choose asynchronous replication to a third data center with Hitachi Universal Replicator. Migrate data from older systems with no disruption to your operation and applications. All the while, monitor your entire storage environment with Hitachi Remote Ops which proactively predicts and prevents issues that may lead to downtime or operational disruption.

The VSP E series is fully integrated with Hitachi Ops Center Protector to provides application-aware snapshots, copy data management and instant recovery. Ops Center Protector even delivers continuity in the public cloud, so you can recover from a data disaster in seconds, not hours!

Flexible Storage Management Choices

Hitachi Vantara’s flexible storage management brings the power of choice back into your organization and scales with your business as it grows and your needs change. Whether for a single array or larger environments, our full complement of orchestration and optimization tools will meet your unique needs now and evolve for what is next. Hitachi embedded management is ideal for single system environments and provides simplified, rapid system configuration and setup of the VSP E series arrays with the ability to provision storage within minutes as well as providing array-based monitoring for basic troubling shooting. When you require more advanced control of your VSP powered infrastructure, simply switch to Hitachi Ops Center, our AIOps-driven, advanced management suite that delivers a self-driving experience across the E series and VSP families.

Hitachi Ops Center is an integrated storage management platform which includes configuration, analytics, automation, and data protection for a more centralized approach to storage management. Ops Center uses the latest AI and machine learning (ML) capabilities to improve IT operations, provide predictive and root cause analysis as well as automated remediation. Ops Center simplifies day-to-day administrative, optimization and management orchestration for VSP E series. Your staff can be freed to focus on innovation and tactical business efforts.

Hitachi Ops Center Analyzer uses ML to continuously monitor the entire data path, from virtual machine (VM) to storage, to ensure resources are meeting their required service level agreements (SLAs) for mission-critical applications. If bottleneck issues do arise, Ops Center Analyzer identifies, diagnoses, and prescribes recommended changes to rapidly resolve the issue. The software also offers predictive analytics to streamline complex decision-making for better planning of future storage requirements or to optimize quality of service (QoS).

Management automation is a critical aspect of improving IT operational efficiency. Hitachi Ops Center Automator orchestrates the agile delivery of VSP E series storage resources to enable a cloudlike, IT-resource delivery model.
