Hitachi Enhances its Midrange Storage System
Hitachi Data Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd., has announced performance enhancements to its midrange storage system, the Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage, model AMS1000.
The 20% performance boost to the AMS1000 adds to the storage systems’ business enabling capabilities such as 32 logical cache partitions, non-disruptive ‘on-the-fly’ data movement across multiple tiers of storage, enterprise-class RAID-6 data protection, and a multi-protocol support for iSCSI, NAS, and Fibre Channel SAN, embedded in a single system. It also offers 4 Gigabit per second Fibre Channel SAN connectivity, enhancing the performance of applications such as video-on-demand and medical imaging.
The model also enables clients to mix and match multiple tiers of storage in a single rack (including 73GB, 146GB and 300GB Fibre Channel and 500GB SATA drives), consolidate Fibre Channel SAN, NAS or iSCSI attached storage within a single rack-with the ability to isolate resources for consistent quality-of-service, secure multi-level access and deliver non-disruptive volume migration.
The AMS1000 is the basis of Hitachi’s channel-optimized midrange storage systems-the Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage and Workgroup Modular Storage lines. Its midrange storage systems offer logical cache partitioning, virtual ports, and host storage domains within a single system. They complement the Network Storage Controller or Universal Storage Platform as tiered or archive storage, especially when configured with SATA drives for lower costs.
