  • Flash storage accelerates application performance.
  • Unified platform consolidates and manages all data types with enterprise virtualization.
  • Storage virtualization reduces the cost of storage.

Virtualize, Manage and Unify All Data Types

Hitachi Unified Storage VM eases the management of information. It manages all of your existing storage and consolidates all of your data in a single, virtualized platform. Hitachi Unified Storage VM is built with trusted Hitachi reliability for application availability, flash-accelerated performance and lower cost of ownership. Delivering enterprise storage virtualization in a unified platform lets you manage information more efficiently.

  • Unified architecture lets you share resources to reduce capital purchases and lower operating cost by as much as 40%.
  • Ensure that data is there when customers need it, with the highest availability - guaranteed at 100%, a commitment you won't find anywhere else.
  • Increase performance or optimize cost by refreshing your technology with up to 90% less effort than alternatives.
  • Flash storage accelerates performance and transaction rates – double that of comparable storage systems.
