Hitachi Data Systems

Hitachi Virtual Partition Manager software enables the logical partitioning of ports, cache and disk (parity groups) into Private Virtual Storage Machines on the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform. Partitions allocate separate, dedicated, secure storage resources for specific users (departments, servers, applications, etc.). Administrators can be provided access to control resources and execute business continuity software within their assigned partitions, secured from affecting any other partitions. Partitions can be dynamically modified to meet quality of service requirements. Overall system priorities, disk space, and tiers of storage can be optimized for application QoS based on changing business needs.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Virtual Partition Manager allows administrators to create Private Virtual Storage Machines to allocate shared resource to multiple business entities
  • Provides a departmental view of storage
  • Allows centralized or decentralized control
  • Allows chargeback, utility-like operations
  • Secure network only to assigned partitions
  • Efficient use of storage resources
  • Dedicated resources for specific applications or departments
  • Optimize performance
  • Meet QoS targets
  • Adjust dynamically based on business requirements

Hitachi Workgroup Modular StorageAs an entry point to our new midrange systems line, the serial ATA (SATA)-based Hitachi Workgroup Modular Storage model 100 (WMS100) offers high capacity, easy-to-install data storage ideal for small and medium businesses (SMBs). The WMS100 provides the foundation for Services Oriented Storage Solutions, matching requirements for the cost-effective scalability and performance in a small footprint while maintaining the reliability edge provided by renowned Hitachi engineering. Example: Businesses deploying their first storage area network (SAN) are able to move from inefficient and costly server-internal or server-attached storage to a centralized, easy-to-manage configuration. Or those with fast-growing Microsoft Exchange or database applications can quickly catch up and keep pace.

For larger companies, the WMS100 complements the Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage (AMS), Universal Storage Platform V (USP V), and Universal Storage Platform VM (USP VM) in tiered storage deployments that require common management tools, nearline backup and data movement for data lifecycle management (DLM) applications.

  • High Availability – Simple Modular Storage offers storage with no single point of failure using RAID-6 configuration for non-disruptive operation. RAID-6 configuration ensures data will not be lost even in the unlikely event that two drives can fail at the same time.
  • Simple Maintenance and Recovery – Should a disk drive fail, Hitachi Simple Modular Storage will continue to operate as if nothing happened. The easy-to-use Hitachi Storage Navigator Modular 2 will notify you that a drive has malfunctioned and direct you to contact the support center, which will send a replacement.
  • Built-in Data Protection – Data protection tasks are simplified with a point-and-click, graphical user interface or GUI-based Hitachi Copy-on-Write Snapshot software. This software quickly replicates volume changes via point-in-time snapshots without impacting host server performance.
