Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform: The Economic Evolution of Enterprise Storage
Global economic circumstances are affecting how organizations are looking at the IT environment. A tougher business climate, aggravated by volatility, increased competition and smaller or thriftier customer budgets means more than just making do with less. In a time when everything seems like a top IT priority, enterprises need significantly better cost-efficiencies in the data center, as well as alignment with changing business, environmental and regulatory requirements. At the same time, organizations must still meet application demands for performance, scalability, security and availability.
With the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform comes a big, evolutionary stride in economically superior storage designed to swiftly address mounting data challenges and changing business demands. The Virtual Storage Platform is a single platform for managing all data across even the largest or most complex of IT infrastructures.

They can dynamically move data throughout virtual tiered storage for block, file and content data. For efficiency, the platform exploits the best available performance and capacity with the lowest power and cooling requirements. Combined with Hitachi Command Suite to deliver three dimensions of management, the Virtual Storage Platform unifies and simplifies administrative tasks for greater cost-efficiencies.
