HDS gets busy, finds itself in the VSP family way
High-end VSP G1000 gets a rackful of younger siblings
We've learnt that HDS' high-end VSP G1000 storage array is sprouting siblings, with G200, G400, G600 and G800 products popping up under the high-end G1000 in the line up.
The G1000 high-end system was announced 11 months ago, in May 2014. Now we have four more members which could be seen to be affecting the entry-level US 100 array family.
HDS VSP Gx00 family members.
There is a file module with a 3U enclosure height and 1-8 nodes per cluster, with 48GB of cache per node. The file system size is a 256TB single namespace pool and 128 filesystems are supported. There can be 1024 snapshots per file system and 1 million clones.
