As Industry-Leading Hitachi VSP G600 Enters Pre-Production, IaaS Provider’s First Users Respond with a ‘Wow’
LOS ANGELES (Nov. 3, 2016) – On the eve of the 2016 PASBA Fall Management Conference – set for Nov. 7–10 at The Peabody Memphis – the CEO of leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider Infinitely Virtual has one word for those whose cloud environments could use a performance boost.
That’s actually not Infinitely Virtual founder and CEO Adam Stern talking – it’s an unsolicited response from a customer using the Thomson accounting suite, after witnessing a pre-production test of Infinitely Virtual’s implementation of Hitachi’s Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) G600, a breakthrough, rack-mountable storage system acknowledged as the industry’s fastest.
The customer’s reaction, in full: “Wow. All I can say… is what was 30 seconds is now 4 seconds, [Thomson] Accounting-CS that was 3 min. is now 30.1 seconds. [Thomson] UT [Ultra Tax] and FCS [File Cabinet- CS] open immediately.”
Laying down sub-millisecond storage performance as a new marker for midrange cloud hosting, Infinitely Virtual has begun to deploy the G600, migrating customers served by its Los Angeles and Boston data centers, with full deployment expected by the end of the year. The Hitachi VSP G600 delivers up to four million IOPS (input/output operations per second) of flashaccelerated performance, responds in less than 1 millisecond for 99.6 percent of transactions, and automatically maximizes performance in real time with Hitachi Dynamic Tiering active flash. According to industry analyst Technavio, flash-based NAS storage arrays offer 40-45 times better performance than hard disk I/O performance.
Infinitely Virtual’s move underscores the primacy of high-speed storage in overall infrastructure performance. “We believe that if providers aren’t delivering storage performance at this level, they simply aren’t delivering,” Stern says. “Especially with accounting applications, storage infrastructure too often cannot keep pace with today’s demands, which is why we’re moving aggressively to offer new solutions that provide substantially better performance, IT efficiency and reliability. To meet future demands, these solutions will lay the foundation for a software-defined infrastructure that has the agility to quickly adapt as demand grows and shifts.”
The Hitachi VSP family of flash-accelerated storage systems offers the ultimate in enterprise storage technology. In addition to delivering up to four million IOPS, the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G600 supports up to 255PB (petabytes) of storage and the industry’s only 100 percent data availability guarantee.
