The storage systems are equipped with dual controllers for communicating with a data host.

Each controller includes the following internal components such as a processor, dual in-line cache memory modules (DIMMs), cache flash memory (CFM), battery, and fans. The controller has an Ethernet connection for out-of-band management using Hitachi Device Manager - Storage Navigator. If the data path through one controller fails, all drives remain available to data hosts using a redundant data path through the other controller. The controller is equipped with LED indicators for monitoring its operating conditions and notifying possible component replacement.
