Hitachi AMS 2000

Hitachi AMS 2000

Each AMS 2000 series array comes with dual controllers that automate many storage management tasks. The symmetric active/active architecture with dynamic load balancing provides integrated, automated, front-to-back-end I/O load balancing. In this design both controllers are active and able to dynamically access any volume from a host port on either controller with no penalty on performance. By eliminating the need for each volume to be assigned to an owning controller, servers can be connected to either controller on an AMS2000 without establishing a primary and failover path to their volumes. With this design SAN path management software is not required.

Description

All models support RAID-6 disk configurations, Fibre Channel and iSCSI host interfaces, as well as the ability to intermix Flash drives with SAS and SATA disk drives in the same tray. They also support both Fibre Channel and iSCSI host interfaces in the same controller. The AMS 2000 family of storage systems are available with just a few terabytes of storage up to 1,417TB of storage. These storage systems support upgrade in place to larger models of the AMS 2000 family as well as migration to new RAID groups while the system is in operation.
