Proven, Powerful, and Predictable: Hitachi Vantara E990


Data today is growing exponentially. In fact, according to world-renowned futurist, Bernard Marr, the world’s data is poised to grow to 175 zettabytes by 2025. To put this into perspective, it would take nearly 1.8 billion years to download this data with today’s internet connection speed![1]

As a growing small or medium-sized enterprise, I bet you’ve seen a similar explosion of data – at a much smaller scale, of course. And as you know, it’s one of your most critical assets; therefore, this is exactly why the technology you choose to manage it could make or break your business. Consequently, you might be seeking a storage and management strategy to help you better capture, organize, and prioritize your business data in order to make better, more informed decisions.

I know from experience that selecting the right data storage technology can be a daunting task. While many of the clients we work with are very motivated to reduce storage costs, strengthen security, and minimize downtime, I often hear that choosing a solution within budget feels like finding a needle in a haystack. The good news is Hitachi Vantara now offers a powerful option for midsize enterprises, making it an excellent time for business leaders and IT staff to consider an upgrade or to make a change.


In 2020, Hitachi Vantara unveiled the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) E990 with Hitachi Ops Center, which delivers innovative features and benefits once only available for large corporations with big IT budgets. What’s exciting about this solution is it offers industry-best reliability and performance at a price point that is accessible to growth companies. It also completes the line-up of VSP models for growing enterprises, adding an all-NVMe option, while taking advantage of the powerful management tools used by the VSP 5100 solution, the world’s fastest data storage array. Based on the VSP 5000, a proven, high-end option for the enterprise, the E990 provides you with a more compact, accessible, and approachable data storage solution. Not to mention, NVMe is the latest flash protocol on the market.

On top of this, with Hitachi Ops Center, administration is made simple. With its unified management suite, gaining operational insights and making informed decisions requires less cost, time and effort. And as Colin Gallagher of Hitachi Vantara said, “What really differentiates us is the suite of capabilities within Hitachi Ops Center.” By reducing manual storage provisioning tasks up to 90% and automating a massive number of manual processes, you can easily achieve the ROI you’re looking to achieve.
