Hitachi Leads with SAS

The Hitachi Data Systems AMS 2X00 is aimed at the mid- to high-end of the modular storage market. The product includes things that are new to this market segment, introduced in this whitepaper.

The Hitachi Data Systems AMS 2X00 is aimed at the mid- to high-end of the modular storage market. By its very nature, the inherent details will get a lot of publicity and discussion. After all, the product includes things that are new to this market segment: SAS architecture and drives, active-active controllers, and a number of other new features. Of course, this paper will have to detail some of the basic features, but throughout the discussion, the intent will be to cover more than the list of ingredients—instead focusing on what those ingredients can mean to users and why they are important in the networked storage market.

Before looking at the new product family, a quick reminder of what we commonly think of as the basic challenges facing businesses—the mid-range as much as any—is worthwhile:

Operational Needs
o Flexibility to cope with growth of both applications and servers (whether physical or virtual)
o Keep personnel costs low through task automation and by making management and administration easy

Business Prerequisites
o Investment value and protection (flex with a growing and changing environment)
o Keep operational costs to an optimal minimum

Data Protection Requirements
o Ensure uptime, availability, and recovery (but with minimized backup windows)
o Security, ability to protect the business (via compliance) as well as the data itself

This whitepaper explains how the new product familiy makes the grade.
