Pushing the limits of ultra high I/O performance, Hitachi Ultrastar SSDs deliver the highest sequential throughput in the market, reaching up to (535MB/s) read throughput with its 400GB 6Gb SAS (single port) drive and 390MB/s throughput with 4Gb FC. The Ultrastar SSD400S family also delivers up to 46,000 read and 21,000 sustained write IOPS, speeds 100 times faster than hard drives, resulting in rapid response times for real-time transaction processing access to “hot” enterprise data for improved productivity and operational efficiency. As fewer SSDs are required to achieve the same HDD ultra-high performance, the new Ultrastar SSD400S family offers significant value in terms of IOPS per Watt, while reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) through low power consumption, efficient cooling and reduced space requirements.

The EMC VNX family delivers industry-leading innovation and enterprise capabilities for file, block and object storage in a scalable easy-to-use solution. Utilizing Hitachi Ultrastar SSDs, EMC’s VNX5500-F system delivers 10X the performance and 80 percent lower cost per TPM (transactions per minute) compared to an all-HDD EMC VNX® system in Oracle OLTP environments. The EMC VNX5500-F is also designed for five-9 availability (available 99.999% of the time), a requirement for mission critical Microsoft and Oracle OLTP workloads. As a member of the EMC VNX series, the VNX5500-F delivers data integrity, multiple RAID options, and proactive global sparing and diagnostics.
