SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 27 -- Answering the demand for enterprise-class data protection for file services, Hitachi today announced major moves to expand the company’s portfolio of High-Performance NAS Platforms. Building on the worldwide success of the Hitachi High-performance NAS Platform, powered by BlueArc, Hitachi is expanding its portfolio with two new models -- the Hitachi High-performance NAS Platform 2000 Nearline and the Hitachi High-performance NAS Platform 2000. This expanded and enhanced portfolio brings enterprises of all sizes new advanced storage services such as data protection, replication, clustering, and virtual server capabilities -- all within an integrated storage management framework.
For organizations of all sizes in vertical markets such as oil and gas, life sciences, entertainment and Internet services, protecting unstructured data generated from high-performance computing applications is paramount to the success of the business. Today, Hitachi is delivering an advanced portfolio of high-performance NAS solutions that deliver the highest levels of performance, scalability and data protection in the industry.
“Hitachi has a proven track record in delivering the most robust data protection, long-distance replication and integrated storage management services to our enterprise customers,” said John Mansfield, senior vice president of Global Solutions Strategy and Development for Hitachi Data Systems. “With today’s announcement, we are bringing all of these advanced storage services to our expanded NAS platform portfolio enabling customers to reduce data storage costs, mitigate risks and improve productivity for their business.”
Introducing the Hitachi High-Performance NAS Platform 2000 Nearline
For customers requiring high-performance, yet cost-effective disk-to-disk data storage for a secondary site or large data repository, the Hitachi High-Performance NAS Platform 2000 Nearline delivers industry-leading performance and scalability. This new platform scales up to 2 petabytes and bridges the gap for customers torn between choosing slow but low-cost tape or fast but higher-cost fiber channel storage systems. Supported by the high-capacity Serial ATA (SATA)-based Hitachi Workgroup Modular Storage system, the new High-Performance NAS Platform 2000 Nearline provides customers a comprehensive set of advanced storage services that can lower overall data storage costs including tiered storage and backup. For example, customers can use the Hitachi High-performance NAS Platform 2000 Nearline to replicate data from a primary site to an offsite nearline location where they can retrieve the information rapidly if needed.
Introducing the Hitachi High-Performance NAS Platform 2000
Breaking through the perceptions that only the largest of enterprises can afford ultra high-performance or scalable NAS solutions, Hitachi is offering a new cost-effective alternative to customers that want a flexible high performance midrange NAS platform that can scale as their business requires. The Hitachi High-Performance NAS Platform 2000 offers customers a high-performance, cost-effective solution that can scale up to 128TB in capacity. Hitachi High-Performance NAS Platform 2000 is fully integrated with all of Hitachi’s storage systems.
Today, Hitachi is unveiling significant enhancements to its entire lineup of High-Performance NAS Platforms including:
