Use Case:

  • Delivers enterprise-level availability, scalability and performance
  • Business critical applications: Enterprise class performance for Microsoft Exchange,
  • Microsoft SQL, Oracle and OLTP workloads
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI): Meets peak performance and cost requirements
  • Traditional storage refresh or extension: Leverage VMware vSphere® and VMware® Virtual SAN™ (vSAN) for VM storage
  • General workloads (Test/Dev, IT Ops, Remote IT): Enables rapid storage provisioning and complete automation
  • Remote Server Room or ROBO (25 VMs packs/site): Powerful, simple storage for IT generalists available on as few as 2-nodes
  • Customers with large database implementations or who are buying new storage or converged stack for Oracle/SAP HANA solutions


 

Introducing HDS Unified Compute Platform

Hitachi Data Systems has incorporated VMware vSAN technology into its Hyper-Converged range of solutions to provide radically simple storage which is also highly affordable. Uniquely embedded in the hypervisor, Virtual SAN delivers flash-optimised, high-performance storage for hyper-converged infrastructure. It leverages commodity x86 components that easily scale to dramatically lower TCO by up to 50%. Seamless integration with VMware  Sphere® and the entire VMware stack makes it the simplest storage platform for virtual machines, whether running business-critical applications, virtual desktops or remote IT applications.

 

Key Benefits

  • Radically Simple – Deploy with 2-clicks through the standard vSphere Web Client and automate management using storage policies.
  • High Performance – Flash accelerated for high IO throughput and low latency.
  • Enterprise Class Support - from Hitachi Data Systems for the whole solution, hardware and software.
  • Elastic Scalability – Elastically grow storage performance and capacity by adding new nodes or drives without disruption. Linearly scale capacity and performance from 2 to 64 hosts per cluster.
  • Lower TCO – Lower storage TCO by up to 50% by deploying standard x86 hardware components for low upfront investment and by shrinking data center footprint and operational overheads.
  • Enterprise Availability – Enable maximum levels of data protection and availability with built-in failure tolerance, asynchronous long distance replication and stretched clusters.
  • Advanced Management – Single pane of glass management for storage, compute and networking with advanced performance monitoring, capacity.
  • Hitachi Data Instance Director (HDID) provides unmatched Unified Data Protection, enabling the simplified creation and management of complex, business-defined policies to meet service levels for high availability.
