New Additions to the VSP E Series NVMe Storage For the Midsize Enterprise

By Hubert Yoshida posted 12-12-2020 02:10

Hitachi Vantara’s E Series NVMe all flash Storage System is designed for the midsize Enterprise.  It provides the lowest cost per IOPs in the industry with ultimate flexibility in consumption, and a 100% Data availability guarantee. The E Series has all the enterprise features of the high end VSP 5000, except for mainframe support. It comes with Hitachi’s Storage Virtualization Operating System RF (SVOS RF) which is optimized for NVMe flash systems and sets it apart from other NVMe storage systems with superior latency and IOPs performance (5.79 million IOPs with a latency of 64 μs in the VSP E990). The E990 was announced in April of this year in a 4 U form factor with the ability to add up to two additional 2U expansion drawers for a total of 96 NVMe SSDs. This month Hitachi Vantara expanded the E Series with the announcement of the E590 and the E790 storage systems. Both the E590 and the E790 are in a 2U form factor containing 24 NVMe SSDs with no expansion drawers. However, all the E series storage systems can virtualize external FC storage systems and manage them as external drives. The E590 can manage up to 1.44PB of raw external storage capacity while the E790 can manage up to 216 PB of raw external storage. Hitachi is the only storage vendor who uses one operating system, SVOS RF, across its entire storage product line to enable customers to manage and replicate data between SVOS RF systems without creating silos of data.
The E Series is also powered by Hitachi's Ops Center, an artificial intelligence-driven management program that enables simplified storage provisioning for AI, machine learning (ML) and containerized applications. Ops Center's AI-enhanced management can streamline storage delivery by up to 90% for demanding applications and reduce manual storage provisioning tasks by up to 70%. Hitachi has optimized its compression and deduplication capabilities which enables it to offer a Total Efficiency Guarantee: Up to 7:1 Savings. If you are unable to store the capacity that we guaranteed, Hitachi will deliver additional storage to fulfill this total efficiency guarantee. This guarantee is part of Hitachi’s Flash Assurance Program, which provides flash investment protection underpinned by an industry-leading 100% data availability guarantee. Like all our products and services, the E Series can be acquired through  EverFlex, which provides consumption-based pricing models for the entire Hitachi Vantara portfolio, ranging from basic utility pricing to custom outcome-based services to Storage-as-a-Service.

The following table compares the three E Series Storage Systems.

The value added bundled features of the E Series include:
100% Data Availability Guarantee
Total Efficiency Guarantee of up to 7:1 for the VSP E990/E790/E590 covers savings from data de-duplication, compression, thin provisioning and snapshots.
Adaptive Data Reduction of up to 4:1 (Sight unseen)
Storage Virtualization
Embedded Management
In System Replication
Copy Data Management
Infrastructure Analytics
Non-disruptive Migration
Data at rest encryption

The Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform family provides the ultimate in enterprise data management. Based on the industry’s leading storage technology, VSP systems offer reliable, enterprise-grade capabilities at price, capacity and performance levels designed to satisfy your unique requirements. The VSP E Series provides you with the latest enhancements of NVMe performance and availability in a form factor to satisfy the ROI requirements of the midsize enterprise environment.
