Product Description
The Hitachi Universal Storage Platform™ V is powered by the fourth-generation Hitachi crossbar switch architecture. With its powerful controller-based virtualization, Hitachi Data Systems is in a unique position to package and deliver storage services across heterogeneous storage assets, whether file, object or block-based. Powered by an enhanced Hitachi Universal Star Network™ V crossbar switch architecture with faster internal processors, 4Gb/sec host ports, 4Gb/sec disks, and 4Gb/sec switched-loop back-end directors, it provides 40% more system performance and further extends the scalability and enterprise-class functionality—virtualization of external storage, logical partitioning, and universal replication—introduced with its predecessor, the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform.
