This product has been replaced by the Hitachi G1500 and F1500.
The HDS Virtual Storage Platform G1000 continues the evolution of Hitachi’s virtualized storage architecture with a new generation of purpose-built, Intel-based hardware and new advanced features along with a directional change to make the embedded Storage Virtualized Operating System (SVOS) the singular code stream for Hitachi storage. The VSP G1000 builds on the high-end, highly reliable systems before it; the VSP and the earlier USP. Advances in the technology have increased performance, expanded usability with active-active stretched clusters, extended storage virtualization with Virtual Storage
Machines (VSMs), and added non-disruptive scale out capabilities to extend the life of the system.
The seamless continuation of the HDS VSP G1000 will allowcustomers familiar with the earlier systems to expand on their value derived from the system with the new capabilities and performance. Environments where the HDS VSP G1000 are used can be expanded with the new capabilities and simplified operations. The VSP G1000 supports both block and file access with file support coming with the high performance HNAS included with the G1000 (as an option). The HNAS supports up to 8 nodes in a cluster.
