Hitachi Data Systems Secures Top Rank in Capacity Shipments for Mainframe Storage [Manufacturing Close - Up]
(Manufacturing Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Hitachi Data Systems Corp. (HDS), a subsidiary of Hitachi, announced that it has shipped more storage capacity into mainframe environments than any other supplier during the first 9 months of 2012, according to IDC's WW Quarterly Disk Storage Systems Tracker, 3Q2012.
HDS reported that it is showcasing its new enterprise-class, solid state storage options, and its virtualization and tiered storage capabilities for mainframe customers at SHARE 2013, through February 8, at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel in San Francisco, Calif. With these capabilities and the Hitachi Data Systems framework for Storage Economics, attendees will learn how to analyze their costs to achieve maximum return on their mainframe storage investments.
"With an increasing number of enterprises seeing real performance benefits from introducing solid state drives into their storage environments, it makes perfect sense for these same enterprises to expand their use of solid state to their mainframe storage systems," said Eric Sheppard, research director, IDC Storage. "Hitachi Accelerated Flash support for mainframe, combined with the company's well established presence in the mainframe storage market, puts HDS in an excellent position to help its customers make just such a move."
Hitachi Data Systems also announced that Hitachi and International Business Machines (IBM) Corp. have successfully completed joint testing of both Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) FICON mainframe storage compatibility and integration testing of Hitachi Universal Replicator and IBM GDPS/PPRC HyperSwap for advanced business continuity and disaster recovery deployments.
