The Hitachi VSP G-Series systems include an optional feature, which will virtualize external storage and use it as another tier. With the Hitachi VSP solution, external storage is always treated as tier 4 storage or the slowest level for the configuration.

All features of the VSP system are available with the virtualization solution. The number of host interfaces are reduced by the number of interfaces used to attach external storage.
The Evaluator Group Evaluator Series Research should be consulted for details of the VSP G series systems.

With the virtualization feature of the VSP, data may be migrated in the background from the external storage systems and may be directly accessed (passthru mode) for data in place.

  • Continuation of Hitachi VSP hardware design
