Hitachi Data Systems announced new upgrades and additions to its Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) G series portfolio.
According to the company, this offering reduces the ongoing costs of traditional environments and exploit and monetize data, which is too often trapped in silos of technology.
For that reason, Hitachi Data Systems has embedded NAS functionality, cloud optimization and enhanced VMware integration into VSP G400, VSP G600 and VSP G800 storage platforms.
“The ever-changing fundamentals of IT demand that storage systems are agile, reliable and cost-effective. The enhanced VSP family meet those needs and beyond,” said Bob Madaio, senior director for Infrastructure Solutions, Hitachi Data Systems.
Today’s announcement adds the option to include two high-performance NAS modules in the VSP G400, VSP G600 and VSP G800 systems.
These modules help to reduce capital expenditures by providing a single, SAN and NAS storage platform for all workloads in a compact form factor.
Operating costs also decline, as VSP G series systems require less power, cooling and space in the data center.
Adding further cost control, the new unified VSP G series offerings allow customers to leverage existing infrastructure investments regardless of environment.
