How our organization uses Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform:

“The implementation of HDT in multi-tiered pools has provided a major benefit. The use of SSDs has given us the IOP performance we needed without having to over-buy capacity (number of spindles required). Future capacity growth will be less expensive because we can add cheaper high capacity drives into the HDT pools.”

“It was purchased as a replacement for our HP XP24000’s. The performance of the VSP’s is exceptional. Our data warehouses are extremely IO intensive and the VSP has performed well above the requirement. "
