Hitachi Data Systems Corporation has announced that its next-generation midrange storage platform, the Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage (AMS) 2000 Family, achieved overall best-in-class Storage Performance Council (SPC-1) benchmark results for a midrange storage system.

In SPC-1 benchmark testing, the Hitachi AMS 2500 achieved the fastest throughput results among all midrange storage competitors with dual controllers.

It had a throughput result of 89,491.81 SPC-1 IOPS and an 8.98 millisecond average response time.

Mike Walkey, senior vice president of channels, Hitachi Data Systems, said that with key business applications such as Microsoft Exchange, SQL, Oracle, SAP or any other online transactional processing application, the AMS 2500 allows users to more effectively scale their workloads at a best-in-class price point.

The Hitachi AMS 2100 achieved among the best SPC-1 Price-Performance ratio in its class at $5.95/SPC-1 IOPS.

Walkey said it brought high performance to a new affordable price level and allowing customers to realise a lower total cost of ownership.

He said that with companies scrambling to find ways to manage data growth without increasing storage expenses or performance penalties, this price-performance ratio reiterated Hitachi’s efforts to help customers establish a path towards optimising their storage environment.

This results in greater return on their storage asset investments and lower overall power and cooling consumption.
