Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., (TSE: 6501), today announced that it has shipped more storage capacity into mainframe environments than any other supplier during the first 9 months of 2012, according to IDC's WW Quarterly Disk Storage Systems Tracker, 3Q2012. The top ranking complements the company’s new mainframe support for Hitachi Accelerated Flash storage, designed for the most demanding enterprise workloads and extended endurance. HDS will showcase its new enterprise-class, solid state storage options, and its industry-leading virtualization and tiered storage capabilities for mainframe customers in Booth 303 at SHARE 2013, February 3-8, at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel in San Francisco, Calif. With these capabilities and the Hitachi Data Systems framework for Storage Economics, attendees will learn how to analyze their costs to achieve maximum return on their mainframe storage investments.
“With an increasing number of enterprises seeing real performance benefits from introducing solid state drives into their storage environments, it makes perfect sense for these same enterprises to expand their use of solid state to their mainframe storage systems,” said Eric Sheppard, research director, IDC Storage. “Hitachi Accelerated Flash support for mainframe, combined with the company's well established presence in the mainframe storage market, puts HDS in an excellent position to help its customers make just such a move.”
According to Claus Mikkelsen, chief scientist, Hitachi Data Systems, “In today’s financial climate, customers need to understand where their costs and potential savings are more than ever, which is exactly what our Storage Economics framework helps them do. Using the HDS Storage Economics approach, major HDS customers have been able to optimize storage expenditures to achieve year-on-year cost reductions of 30% for 4 years, even while experiencing 40-60% annual growth. We expect these impressive savings will only be accelerated by greater adoption of Hitachi Accelerated Flash storage and our advanced tiering software.”
Now available for use with mainframe storage, the new Hitachi Accelerated Flash storage announced in November 2012, is the first enterprise-class, solid state storage option built from the ground up. Built with the unique Hitachi embedded flash controller and MLC flash memory, it delivers superior performance over single-level cell (SLC) devices, and lowers bit costs over multi-level cell (MLC) flash based SSDs.
Additional enhancements that Hitachi Data Systems will showcase for the mainframe market include Hitachi Dynamic Tiering for advanced internal and external virtualization. This multi-layered tiering strategy now supports up to three storage tiers and more flexible policy controls than other industry options.
Hitachi Data Systems also announced that Hitachi, Ltd. and International Business Machines (IBM) Corporation have successfully completed joint testing of both Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) FICON mainframe storage compatibility and integration testing of Hitachi Universal Replicator and IBM GDPS/PPRC HyperSwap® for advanced business continuity and disaster recovery deployments. These test results confirm that Hitachi Data Systems delivers the storage performance and availability, which is critical for the most demanding business continuity and disaster recovery scenarios, while making it easier for mainframe customers to install Hitachi Data Systems and IBM products in their IT environments.
