HDS Claims SPC-1 Record

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Further expanding its industry lead in enterprise storage system performance while crushing through the limitations of aging monolithic architectures, Hitachi today announced that its flagship Universal Storage Platform V achieved the highest Storage Performance Council (SPC-1) benchmark result in enterprise storage system history, eclipsing the results of every single enterprise storage system ever tested using this widely recognized industry-standard benchmark.

The Hitachi USP V nearly doubled the performance levels achieved by competitors’ enterprise storage systems tested under the SPC-1 methodology, achieving 200,245.73 SPC IOPS™ in the SPC-1 benchmark with a single storage controller — delivering incredibly fast response times at a lower price point, providing exceptional storage economics to end-users.

“Evaluator Group has been a strong proponent of the SPC since it published its first results in 2001 and encourage our clients to use these results for competitive comparisons. With these very impressive results the USP V has significantly raised the performance bar for enterprise storage systems,” said Chuck Standerfer, senior partner, Evaluator Group. “We would encourage the other enterprise storage vendors to graciously accept this challenge and publish their SPC results so that customers would have a valid independent source for comparisons.”
