    • BUSINESS CONTINUITY – MAINFRAME PORTFOLIO In-System Replication Solutions Remote Replication Solutions Replication Management Solutions In-System Replication Solutions Remote Replication Solutions Replication Management Solutions Hitachi ShadowImage® Replication For full-volume clones of business data with consistency (ATTIME split with HUR) Hitachi TrueCopy® Synchronous, consistent clones at remote location up to 300km (~180 miles) Business Continuity Manager Replication management in z/OS environments Hitachi Compatible Mirroring for IBM® FlashCopy® Point-in-time volumes and datasets via IBM command set in z/OS environment Hitachi Universal Replicator (HUR) Any distance, unique use of “pull” technology and journal volumes to accommodate link outages or interruptions Hitachi Replication Manager with mainframe BCM plus “enterprise-wide” GUI replication management and monitoring for mainframe and open systems Hitachi Compatible Software for IBM® FlashCopy® SE PiT volumes with virtual volume pools versus whole volumes as targets Hitachi Compatible Replication for IBM® XRC® Asynchronous remote replication via compatible with IBM XRC in z/OS environment z/OS Basic HyperSwap, GDPS HyperSwap certification and/or integration High-availability storage for z/OS environments Replication assessment, migration and implementation services Best-practice designs that ensure results and lower risks in implementation Replication scorecard (health check) services Periodic checkups that ensure continued solution value
    • TRUECOPY REMOTE REPLICATION (SYNCHRONOUS) (1) Host write (4) Write complete (2) Synchronous remote copy (3) Remote copy complete PVOL SVOL Previously 2 Round-trips Now, 1 Round trip! • Zero Data Loss possible with Fence-level = Data • Performance: “dual-write” plus one (1) round-trip latency and a little “overhead” • Up to 300 km supported – A couple of customers with up to ~ 140 km • Consistency groups supported for open and mainframe • Consistency groups supported across open and mainframe • zOS support is PPRC command compatible
    • HITACHI UNIVERSAL REPLICATOR HIGHLIGHTS  Hitachi Universal Replicator and Data Resilience ‒ Protects production performance during replication anomalies ‒ Protects Recovery Point Objective (RPO) with replication resilience during replication anomalies ‒ Leverages HDS virtualization for lower-cost BC/DR solutions ‒ Can enable reductions in bandwidth requirements  Key Features ‒ Asynchronous replication of customer’s data ‒ Unique cache and disk based journaling ‒ Unique pull technology to move data to target storage system ‒ Multi-volume and multi-storage-system consistency groups ‒ Consistency across mainframe and open systems supported ‒ Thin (dynamic) provisioning awareness ‒ Advanced configuration support (e.g., 3DC, 4DC, delta-resync)
    • RPO ESTIMATE WITH LESS THAN PEAK BANDWIDTH
    • Journal (HUR) vs. Cache (Bitmap) RPO Recovery Bitmap RPO HUR RETURN TO NORMAL OPERATION: DISK JOURNALS AVOID SUSPEND IMPACTS TO RPO * Modeled data only Outage Repaired No suspend, decreasing RPO Suspend, increasing RPO

    • HUR INTEGRATION WITH HYPERSWAP HIGH-AVAILABILITY WITH DISASTER RECOVERY TrueCopy Duplex HUR Duplex Delta Pairs Hold X HyperSwap Delta Pairs Hold HUR Duplex BCM detects HyperSwap via system messages and drives automated change of HUR states
    • MAINFRAME REPLICATION MANAGEMENT “REFRESHER”  Hitachi - IBM Compatibility ‒ Hitachi storage has essential compatibility with IBM z/OS ‒ IBM replication management compatibility ‒ Hitachi storage controllers support PPRC, XRC and FlashCopy commands (assuming applicable software licensing) without additional HDS-provided software ‒ TrueCopy synchronous is compatible with PPRC ‒ For full-volumes, IBM commands operate on individual replication pairs ‒ But, IBM commands do not support Hitachi Universal Replicator  Hitachi Business Continuity Manager (BCM) value-add ‒ Reduce complexity, simplify management ‒ Provide enhanced control and visibility ‒ (e.g., support configured and unconfigured devices) ‒ Reduce risk
    •  Automatically discovers Hitachi storage systems and internal copy volumes  Uses a single command to manage groups of copy volumes with common attributes  Receives auto notification of key copy “state transitions”  Supports advanced TrueCopy, ShadowImage and Universal Replicator features  Real-time view of Universal Replicator  Single, consistent interface based on Time Sharing Options (TSO) / Interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF)  Standard REXX scripting to customize and automate  Optional Integration with Replication Manager for combined mainframe and open systems replication management BUSINESS CONTINUITY MANAGER™ HIGHLIGHTS
