Hitachi Data Systems Provides Enhanced Software Support for Virtualized Environments


Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer 2.0 Delivers up to 90 Percent Savings in MTTD IT Outages

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Hitachi Data Systems Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE:HIT), today announced Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer 2.0, an all-in-one availability and performance monitoring software product for midsized business IT environments. Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer simplifies IT management by allowing customers to monitor the availability of servers, switches and storage devices from one screen. At the same time it reduces the mean time to diagnose (MTTD) IT infrastructure outages, resolving one of the key pain points for midsized organizations.

In a single interface, Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer shows the availability and performance of the heterogeneous servers, LAN, SAN and storage devices on a network. The patent-pending root cause analysis feature enables a key benefit – the reduction of MTTD in IT environment outages by up to 90 percent. Additionally, Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer has the capability to integrate with independent software vendor (ISV) applications and third party devices, via plug-ins, providing unified monitoring of the entire network infrastructure.

“Organizations of all sizes now depend heavily on their IT facilities to get work done quickly and efficiently,” said Sean Moser, vice president of Software Products for Global Solutions and Strategy Development, Hitachi Data Systems. “When an IT system fails or becomes unavailable, work is delayed, revenue is lost and the business suffers. Today’s IT infrastructure can be a complex and often accidental architecture made up of servers, switches and storage devices from multiple vendors. Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer software offers functionality that allows midsized organizations to monitor their IT facilities in the simplest way possible. Our goal is to provide uncomplicated, thorough monitoring capabilities for a broad set of heterogeneous IT equipment.”

Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer has all the essential features needed to monitor the performance and availability of midsized organizations’ IT assets. New features in version 2.0 include:

* Enhanced virtualization support including Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere
* Expanded device monitoring – up to 750 nodes per license
* Now supports Hitachi Universal Storage Platform® VM, Microsoft Hyper-V, SUSE Linux, Cisco ISR, Extreme, Linksys/Cisco (SGE) and Enterasys
* Partner and ISV enabled plug-in development (open platform)
