Storage Device

The Hitachi AMS 2500 (Adaptable Modular Storage) can be used as a standalone storage system for data consolidation and high-volume applications. The AMS 2300 is also intended for modular storage for lower-tier data storage, remote office storage, tape displacement solutions, virtual tape, and disaster recovery. The Hitachi AMS 2500 Disk Array supports all Fibre channels, iSCSI, and RAID-6 disc configurations. The HITACHI AMS 2500 can also mix SAS, and SATA disc drives with Flash drives in the same tray. The HITACHI AMS 2500 uses high-density storage trays as a solution, allowing for up to 48 3.5"" discs in a 4U high tray or up to 24 2.5"" discs in a 2U high tray. One rack can accommodate almost 1 petabyte of storage capacity. As more drives are added to the system, the performance of the AMS 2500 continues to improve thanks to the large bandwidth provided to the drives by the SAS architecture. Dynamic load balancing controllers are used by the HITACHI Modular Adaptable Storage 2500 to provide integrated, automatic, front-to-back I/O load balancing. This ensures that both controllers receive an equal share of I/O traffic from hosts to disc devices.
