Hitachi Universal Storage Platform VM

Hitachi/HDS Hitachi Universal Storage Platform VMHitachi Universal Storage Platform™ VM (USP VM) blends enterprise-class functionality with a smaller footprint to meet the business needs of entry-level enterprises and fast-growing midsize organizations, while supporting distributed or departmental applications in large enterprises.

Now, smaller organizations can enjoy the same benefits as large enterprises in deploying and managing their storage infrastructure in a way never possible before. The USP VM, powered by the Hitachi Universal Star Network™ crossbar switch architecture, delivers the innovative controller-based virtualization, logical partitioning, and universal replication for open systems and mainframe environments.

The industry’s highest-reliability and availability storage solution 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 VM 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
Nondisruptive data migration
Volume management across heterogeneous storage arrays
Security services (immutability, logging, auditing, and data shredding)
Business continuity services
SOSS enable 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 VM lets you deploy applications within a new framework, fully leverage—and add value to—current investments, and more closely align IT to your business objectives.
