Virtual Storage Platform G350, G370 Hardware Reference Guide

Part Number

The VSP Gx00 models include an optional, separate 1U service processor (SVP) dedicated to host an element manager (Storage Navigator). The SVP operates independently from the CPU of the storage system and operating system, and provides out‑of‑band configuration and management of the storage system. The SVP also monitors and collects performance data for key components of the storage system to enable diagnostic testing and analysis for customer support.

The SVP is also available as a 64-bit software application provided by Hitachi Vantara. For the latest interoperability updates and details, see the SVP (Service Processor) OS and Hypervisor support report at
