Hitachi Data Systems introduces HFS A series family

Customisable solution designed for virtual desktop, virtual server real-time analytics and database environments

Information storage and virtualisation company, and wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) has added the Hitachi Flash Storage (HFS) A series family to its flash portfolio.

HDS claimed the simplified appliance package is easy to deploy and offers data optimisation technologies for business insights and services delivery across a variety of workloads.

The company said selectable data services include inline data deduplication and compression, thin provisioning, snapshots, replication and data encryption.

HDS also said the updated features enables customisation between turning on or off the inline data de-duplication or compression based on application requirements for a balanced mix between performance and efficiency.

As a result, space can be saved by allocating capacity on demand with thin provisioning technology.

Hitachi Data Systems vice-president of infrastructure platforms, solutions and Cloud, Miklos Sandorfi, said, “Hitachi has delivered a full portfolio of optimised flash solutions bound together by a software-defined approach to storage infrastructure.”

“This gives customers the ability to optimise solutions for a particular set of use cases while getting the power and efficiencies of common management, workflows and policies across their infrastructure,” he added.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
