AGILE, INTELLIGENT GROWTH

Linear Scale-Out to Fit Your Growth Timetable

A More Versatile, Scalable Solution
Scale with small increments of cost-effective capacity and grow as needed, from one to 16 appliances with "just-in-time" consumption and performance.
Add Compute, Network, Storage and Management Without Complexity
With each addition, software automatically discovers a new appliance and nodes on the network and rebalances resources and workloads across the cluster to create a single resource pool.

DEEP VMWARE INTEGRATION

Designed From the Ground Up for VMware Environments

Faster to Deploy, Simpler to Manage, Less Costly to Run
VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) abstracts storage into logical, VM-centric pools of capacity that can be flexibly consumed and managed.
VSAN Software-Defined Storage Optimized for VMs
Proven, reliable technology is implemented at the VM kernel level, driven by end-to-end storage-based policy management for maximum efficiency.
User Interface Familiarity Breeds Efficiency
Your IT staff can continue to operate the VMware software stack as well as vSphere and vCenter, with which they are familiar, using their existing skill sets.

RESILIENT, RADICALLY SIMPLE OPERATION

Unlimited, Secure Storage for File Services Beyond the Data Center

Backup-Free Data Protection
Private and public cloud storage capacity extends remote site data protection from the core data center to distributed environments, such as remote offices and cloud storage.
Policy-Based Data Protection Safeguards Your Valuable Assets
Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI) and Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) provide industry-leading data protection and backup and recovery with built-in replication for vSphere environments.
WAN Optimization Minimizes Performance Degradation
Patented, innovative proprietary algorithm improves transmission performance of long-distance storage transfers.
