The vendor has introduced multi-processing technologies to its mid-tier AMS1000 to complement the system's other features - first unveiled in April last year - such as 32 logical cache partitions, non-disruptive "on-the-fly" data movement across multiple tiers of storage and enterprise-class Raid-6 data protection.

HDS claimed the new technologies incorporated into the AMS1000, released last week, gave it a 20% increase in performance over the previous version of the system.

No other storage vendor can provide such an integrated solution within a midrange storage system without the aid of external appliances and/or host software, it said in a statement.

John Webster, principal IT advisor at research firm Illuminata, said: "By giving customers the ability to dynamically move application data between different classes of storage within the system, now coupled with a performance enhancement and multi-protocol interfaces, the AMS1000 is worthy of consideration as a flexible, long-term data consolidation platform."

AMS1000 features:

•32 logical cache partitions

•‘On-the-fly’ data movement across tiers

•Enterprise-class Raid-6 data protection
