System components and specifications

Storage system components

The Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G200, G400, G600, G800 storage systems and Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform F400, F600, F800 all-flash arrays are modular, rack-mountable systems that incorporate state-of-the-art virtualization, data-management, and fault-tolerant technologies.

All models are compatible with most industry-standard 4-post EIA 19-inch racks with square mounting holes. The storage system can be factory-configured and shipped in a Hitachi 600 x 1200 mm V2 Universal Rack, or shipped without a rack for customer installation into an existing rack.

The Hitachi rack comes with either two or four Power Distribution Units (PDUs), depending on the PDU model selected. The PDUs are installed vertically in the rack.

  • If two PDUs are selected, one will be installed on the left side of the rack and the other will be installed on the right side.
  • If four PDUs are selected, the PDUs will be half-length and mounted vertically, one above the other, with two on the left side of the rack and two on the right side.

All storage systems are comprised of controllers, drive trays, and a service processor (SVP).

Controllers Controllers are components in the storage system that cache and manage data, and provide hosts with a coherent, virtualized view of the system. All storage systems have two controllers.

The controllers for the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G200 include either 24 2.5-inch small form-factor (SFF) disk drives or 12 3.5-inch large form-factor (LFF) disk drives.

Drive trays

Drive trays are intelligent and compact storage units, with each capable of holding a large numbers of disk drives in a small rack space (EIA-standard rack units). VSP G200, G400, G600, G800 storage systems support the following drive trays and drives:

  • DW-F800-DBS: 2U drive tray that holds 24 2.5-inch SFF disk drives. Drives are arranged vertically in a single row.
  • DW-F800-DBL: 2U drive tray that holds 12 3.5-inch LFF disk drives. Drives are arranged horizontally, with four columns of three disk drives.
  • DW-F800-DBF: 2U drive tray that holds 12 Hitachi Accelerated Flash (HAF) or DC2 flash module drives. Drives are arranged horizontally, with three columns of three disk drives.
  • DW-F800-DB60: 4U dense drive tray that holds 60 LFF disk drives. Drives are arranged horizontally, with five rows of 12 disk drives.

VSP F400, F600, F800 all-flash array models support various fixed storage capacity configurations of DC2 flash module drives within the DW-F800-DBF drive tray. To deliver consistent low latency host response times and highest IOP performance across all host connection ports, no HDDs are included or permitted to be configured as part of the all-flash array configurations.

NAS modules

Some storage systems support NAS modules for sharing file-based information over an IP network using system protocols such as Common Internet File System (CIFS), Network File System (NFS), and Server Message Block (SMB). NAS modules are installed in pairs.

Service processor

The SVP is available as a physical (Hitachi Vantara bare metal) 1U management server or as a 64-bit software application supplied by Hitachi Vantara. The physical SVP server and the SVP software applications are supported in the environments shown in the following tables. For the latest interoperability updates and details, see the VSP Gx00 Fx00 Service Processor (SVP) report at https://support.hitachivantara.com/en_us/interoperability.html.

Control method

Read LRU, Write after

Battery backup

Provided

Backup duration

Unrestricted (saving to a nonvolatile memory)

Data in the cache memory is preserved against power failures. If a power outage occurs, data in cache memory is written to drives.

When the storage system enters Cache Backup mode, the amber WARNING LED goes on to when the system starts. This warning indicates that the battery charge has dropped significantly and the remaining battery capacity is not sufficient; the storage system will continue operating with the Write Cache function disabled.

When the battery is charged, the warning indication disappears, and the storage system continues the operation in the Write Cache function.

The warning indication disappears within six hours. Even when the warning is shown, normal operation is assured in Write-Through. Read and write performance is lowered because the Write Cache function is disabled.

If the storage system is not charged for more than six months, the battery can become overcharged and sustain unrecoverable damage. To avoid this situation, charge the battery more than 3 hours every six months.

Battery backup

Provided

Backup duration

Unrestricted (saving to a nonvolatile memory)

Data in the cache memory is preserved against power failures. If a power outage occurs, data in cache memory is written to drives.

When the storage system enters Cache Backup mode, the amber WARNING LED goes on to when the system starts. This warning indicates that the battery charge has dropped significantly and the remaining battery capacity is not sufficient; the storage system will continue operating with the Write Cache function disabled.

When the battery is charged, the warning indication disappears, and the storage system continues the operation in the Write Cache function.

The warning indication disappears within six hours. Even when the warning is shown, normal operation is assured in Write-Through. Read and write performance is lowered because the Write Cache function is disabled.

If the storage system is not charged for more than six months, the battery can become overcharged and sustain unrecoverable damage. To avoid this situation, charge the battery more than 3 hours every six months.

IPv4 Supported N/A
IPv6 Supported

Note the following precautions:

  • When iSCSI Port IPv6 is set to Enabled, if the IPv6 global address is set to automatic, the address is determined by acquiring a prefix from an IPv6 router.

  • If the IPv6 router does not exist in the network, the address cannot be determined. As a result, an iSCSI connection might be delayed. When an iSCSI Port IPv6 is set to Enabled, verify the IPv6 router is connected to the same network, and then set IPv6 global address automatically.

Subnet mask Supported N/A
Gateway address Supported N/A

DNS N/A N/A
Ping (ICMP ECHO) Transmit, Receive Supported N/A
IPsec2 N/A N/A
TCP port number 3260 Changeable among 1 to 65,535. Observe the following if changing values:
  • The setting of the corresponding host should also be changed to log in the new port number.
  • The new port number might conflict with other network communication or be filtered on some network equipment, preventing the storage system from communicating through the new port number.
iSCSI name Both iqn3 and eui4 types are supported The unique iqn value is automatically set when a target is made. iSCSI name is configurable.
Error recovery level 0 (zero) Error recovery by retrying from host. Does not support Level 1 and Level 2.
Header digest Supported Detects header error or data error with iSCSI communication. The storage system follows the host's digest setting. If digest is enabled, the performance degrades. The amount of the degradation depends on factors such as host performance of host and transaction pattern.
Data digest Supported
Maximum iSCSI connections at one time 255 per iSCSI port N/A
CHAP Supported Authentication: login request is sent properly from host to storage. CHAP is not supported during discovery session.
Mutual (2-way) CHAP Supported (not available if connected to Linux software initiator) Authentication: login request is sent properly from host to storage.
CHAP user registration Max 512 users per iSCSI port N/A
iSNS Supported With iSNS (name service), a host can discover a target without knowing the target's IP address.

Note:

  1. JP1, HiCommand Dynamic Link Manager. Pass switching is achieved. Not supported on Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems.
  2. IP Security. Authentication and encryption of IP packets. The storage system does not support IPsec.
