Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000 provides the always-available, agile and automated foundation needed for a trusted continuous-cloud infrastructure. Powered with Hitachi global storage virtualization, its new software capabilities unlock IT agility and enable the lowest storage TCO.
We are delivering the industry’s best combination of enterprise-ready software-defined storage, advanced global storage virtualization, and efficient, scalable, high-performance hardware. This combination enables the continuous operations, self-managing policy-driven management, and agile IT demanded by today’s new breed of cloud applications.
Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000 (VSP G1000) with Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operation System (SVOS) is the next generation of enterprise storage that redefines storage virtualization and resets customer expectations.
Global storage virtualization enables an always-on infrastructure. Enterprise-wide scalability provides a complete separation between host and storage independent of connectivity, location, storage system or vendor.
Customer-driven nondisruptive migration1 capability enables movement, copy and migration of data between storage systems, including 3rd-party storage systems, without interrupting application access and replication.
Integrated active mirroring2 enables volume extensibility between systems and across sites through the provisioning and management of active-active volumes up to 100 km apart3.
Unified storage with enterprise scalability allows administrators to centrally manage large pools of storage across virtualized storage pools of SAN, NAS or object storage.
