Hitachi is featuring enterprise class, high-speed flash storage available in a variety of configurations.  Our new VSP G1500 hybrid array and all-flash VSP 1500 deliver increased mainframe performance, the industry’s only 100% data availability guarantee and powerful replication technologies to eliminate downtime, making HDS the choice for mainframe operations.


If your IT operations need high speed, low latency, data access, Hitachi is the vendor to choose. In addition to traditional SSDs, Hitachi offers its own flash modules (FMDs) that include onboard ASICs and data management intelligence to provide superior performance over SSDs. FMDs also provide tighter management and wear information with the storage subsystem enabling us to extend flash life and provide predictable failure management. With scalability of up to 8PB of flash storage, HDS gives you superior scaling of performance to meet changing data center needs.


When resiliency and uptime are key, HDS is your partner of choice. Our fault tolerant system architecture combined with powerful synchronous and asynchronous replication technologies enable multi-site business continuity to meet zero recovery point and zero recovery time objectives.
