The Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform high end systems, the 5200H and 5600H hybrid systems and 5200 and 5600 all flash systems continue the evolution of Hitachi’s virtualized storage architecture with a new generation of purpose-built, Intel-based hardware. The VSP 5000 models use the same SVOS software as the earlier G1500 and F1500 models and builds on the high-end, highly reliable systems offered by Hitachi. Technology changes include new processors, new PCIe internal switches, support for NVMe devices, and new controller architecture.
Previous VSP 5000, such as the 5100 and 5500, models featured the use of custom flash modules called FMDs, however the latest 5200 and 5600 models no longer support FMDs and instead focus on standard SSDs, NVMe SSDs, and SCM devices.
The seamless continuation of the Hitachi VSP systems will allow customers familiar with the earlier systems to expand on their value derived from the system with the new capabilities and performance. Environments where the Hitachi VSP are used can be expanded with the new capabilities and simplified operations.
