Product Description
The Hitachi Data Systems Freedom Storage Lightning 9900 V-Series 2nd generation RAID storage subsystem offers continuous availability and scalability based on a single architecture that meets enterprise-wide storage requirements in multi-platform environments. The Lightning 9900 V-Series system offers a virtualization assist layer to ease storage management and better utilize resources. Host storage Domains allow host pooling at the logical Unit level, optimizing connectivity and reducing network infrastructure. High availability and reliability are accomplished through RAID 5+ / RAID 1+ implementation, host failover, and alternate path support. The revolutionary Hi-Star fabric architecture provides 64 switched, point-to-point internal paths. From its Hi-Star architecture and its all-fiber, multiple-looped FC-AL back end and disks, to its support for World Wide names and SAN security, the Lightning 9900 is ready to support the largest SANs. The Lightning 9900 V-Series is targeted toward high performance, high availability host environments.
