Gartner published their Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems in June 2014. This is the first Integrated Systems report, which Gartner defines as “combinations of server, storage, and network infrastructure sold with management software that facilitates the provisioning and management of the combined unit.” Based on this definition, Hitachi Data Systems’ Unified Compute Platform was evaluated [...]
In this blog series on Redefining Unified Storage, I covered Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS) Dynamic virtual controller, which simplifies the management of LUN assignments and provides enterprise class load balancing. I followed that with the hybrid architecture of HUS file modules, which combine multicore CPUs with FPGAs to increase the throughput performance and scalability of [...]
In my previous post on Redefining Unified Storage – Hardware Differences Part 1, I described how the active/active controllers in Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS) set a new standard in dual controller storage systems by enabling enterprise class load balancing for performance, QoS, and availability. In this post I will describe the main difference in the [...]
