Product Description
Whatever the size of your business, we have a Hitachi Thunder 9500™ V Series modular storage system that's sure to fit. As part of our Application Optimized Storage™ solutions, Thunder 9500 V Series systems can precisely match your business application needs. The Thunder 9570V™ and Thunder 9585V™ systems support high performance, high capacity, and high connectivity features that make them perfect for information-intensive industries like oil exploration, life sciences, health care, and rich media. The smaller models—the Thunder 9530V™ entry-level storage deck and the SATA-based Thunder 9520V™ Workgroup Modular Storage—are ideal for standalone deployment in retail outlets, business franchises, and professional offices. Each of the Thunder 9500 V Series storage systems can complement our TagmaStore™ Universal Storage Platform and Lightning 9900™ V Series enterprise storage systems in tiered storage deployments.
