“We have two production pools with a Tier 0 (HAF). One is dedicated to our primary financial app and one that is shared across our primary production applications.”
“For its’ cost, performance and integration with Dynamic Tiering, it is THE most cost effective implementation of FLASH in our enviroment.”
“Increasing use to improve online database transaction response. Lifting general performance of all workloads when used as a top tier.”
“Yes. Because it brings the performance of flash to Hitachi heritage of robust highly available systems for mission critical workloads that can be managed and measured from one coherent management interface.”
“Addition of flash storage to Hitachi Dynamic Tiering pools almost instantly showed improved performance throughout the whole Virtual Storage Platform array. IO response times were down from 10ms to 1ms.”
“Yes. Greatly improves IO response time performance and great for HDT pools.”
70% of IT organizations agreed with the following statement:
“Hitachi Accelerated Flash dramatically improved the performance of our business‐critical applications.”
“Hitachi Virtualization with Hitachi Dynamic Tiering (HDT) has allowed us to “set it and forget it”. In other words, it has automated the process of making tiered storage efficient. We are able to trust Hitachi Virtualization with HDT to put pages on the best storage available to it, and we can save expenses. We no longer need to use storage administrators time to decide about data they don’t often know about and no longer need to migrate it when they have guessed wrong."
78% of surveyed IT organizations have saved 11% – 25% or more on costs with virtualization-based storage consolidation and tiering.
69% of surveyed IT organizations chose Hitachi Storage Virtualization solutions for consolidation and storage tiering savings.
“By consolidating all modular arrays behind the VSP, we can easily view our storage usage and manage replication from a single view.”
“Hitachi Dynamic Tiering allows us to effectively use small pools of SSD. In addition, we can enable faster access to portions of archived data that experience heavier than average access rates.”
“Hitachi Dynamic Tiering simplified administration of storage arrays and saved us around 30% on maintenance costs.”
