Storage virtualization has become a mainstay in the enterprise environment, helping companies to modernize and simplify countless storage activities. However, many organizations are not fully capitalizing on its manageability and economic benefits. In fact, virtualization solves certain challenges while creating others. With this in mind, Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) set out to address these issues with its SVOS (Storage Virtualization Operating System).

SVOS provides system element management and advanced storage system functions such as storage virtualization, thin provisioning, storage service-level controls and performance instrumentation across multiple storage platforms. It represents the uncoupling of software from hardware, which gives its users the ability to move data around the various platforms in their cloud, private or co-located data ecosystem with zero application downtime, and without disruption to users bases regardless of their location. SVOS is an enabler element of the ROI on total IT assets. And it does all this with a single interface that ties back into a single framework.
