Thin Provisioning
"Just-in-time" capacity allocation optimizes storage utilization and eliminates allocated but unused storage space.
Remote Replication - Optional

Remote replication provides a continuous, non-disruptive, host-independent solution for disaster recovery, data backup or migration over a long distance
Automated Storage Tiering -Optional

As part of automated storage tiering, data is migrated between tiers based on data usage patterns and user-configured policies
SSD Caching - Optional
SSD Cache leverages the high speed and low latency of solid state drives in delivering faster read performance where it counts most in high demand, vital data that must be accessed frequently
