Hu Yoshida goes beyond Virtualization

...and he elaborate how "Hitachi Universal Storage Platform V" will take us all to the "All Virtualized Infrastructure".

Dynamic Provisioning which enables the ability to virtualize capacity within virtual volumes. This enables IT to eliminate the waste of allocated but unused space. While virtual volumes enabled non disruptive data movement for migration, replications, and tiered storage, it did not address the problem of allocating more space than is actually used in the primary volume as well as in all the replicas of that volume. Some storage systems can virtualize capacity with thin provisioning, but they don’t offer virtualization of the volume for non-disruptive data mobility. Hitachi’s Dynamic provisioning provides all this and much more. With Dynamic provisioning Hitachi also provides wide striping across large storage pools, where hundreds of disk drives can be employed to service an I/O request and provide self tuning.

Check out his blog. It is a sales pitch so if you are a Hitachi client, you'd be interested in it.
