Hitachi Universal Storage Platform V

Hitachi/HDS Hitachi Universal Storage Platform VReaching previously unattainable levels of consolidation, the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform™ V (USP V) has redefined the storage industry. It represents the world’s first implementation of a large scale, enterprise-class virtualization layer combined with thin provisioning software. That means the virtualization of internal and external heterogeneous storage into one pool has finally been achieved.
Customers can obtain the consolidation benefits of external storage virtualization with the efficiencies, power, and cooling advantages of thin provisioning in one integrated solution.

Everyone from mid-sized growing companies to the largest global organizations can now benefit from the industry’s highest performing and most scalable storage solution.
It is backed by a set of storage and data services that include thin provisioning with Hitachi Dynamic Provisioning™ software, application-centric storage management, and logical partitioning, as well as simplified, unified data replication across heterogeneous storage systems.

An integral component of the Services Oriented Storage Solutions (SOSS) architecture from Hitachi Data Systems, the Hitachi USP V provides the foundation for matching application requirements to different classes of storage.
The Hitachi USP V packages and delivers critical services such as:
Thin provisioning
I/O load balancing
Volume management across heterogeneous storage systems
Nondisruptive data migration
Security services (immutability, logging, auditing, data shredding)
Business continuity services
Content management services (search, indexing)
Data de-duplication
Data classification
File management services
SOSS enables IT organizations to present business clients with a menu of storage attributes (such as performance, availability, cost, and security) and charge for those services based on the client’s selection.
SOSS can lower costs, extend lifetime value, and simplify management activities. The Hitachi USP V enables you to deploy applications within a new framework, fully leverage—and add value to—current investments, and more closely align IT with business objectives.
