Check www.hds.com/webtech for  Links to the recording, the presentation and Q&A (available next week)  Schedule and registration for upcoming WebTech sessions
  4. 4. AGENDA  2012 global economic and IT outlook  Challenges for the data center administrator  Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Pro  Recommendations  Q&A session
  5. 5. Plan Buy Build Deliver Support What’s wrong with this picture? DATA CENTER CONVERGENCE
  6. 6. Too many handoffs Too many tools Too many vendors Way too much time DATA CENTER CONVERGENCE
  7. 7. AGENDA  2012 global economic and IT outlook  Challenges for the data center administrator  Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Pro  Recommendations  Q&A session
  8. 8. Some issues remain: No unified view – still too many tools Limited orchestration – still too many handoffs Painful support – still too many vendors CHALLENGES FOR THE DATA CENTER ADMINISTRATOR
  9. 9. VMWARE ADMINISTRATOR CHALLENGES  VMware vCenter is a great tool to manage virtual machines  But VMware vCenter-based infrastructure management is limited  Missing ESXi image management  Limited host ecosystem view  No real-time hardware updates to vCenter Storage  Limited storage system or SAN view  No storage management capability  Storage provisioning takes manual efforts across silos  No monitoring of storage environment Network  Limited network view  VLAN and port channel configuration is tedious  No self-healing of switch configuration  No monitoring of physical switch Server
  10. 10. AGENDA  2012 global economic and IT outlook  Challenges for the data center administrator  Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Pro  Recommendations  Q&A session
  11. 11. Enterprise-class hardware and software Built for virtualization Configured and tested before shipment Flexible and scalable – right for you! HITACHI UNIFIED COMPUTE PLATFORM PRO FOR VMWARE VSPHERE TRULY CONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE

  15. 15. UCP PRO V2 HARDWARE ARCHITECTURE GROW AS YOU NEED TO
  16. 16. UCP DIRECTOR SOFTWARE CAPABILITIES Integrated with VMware vCenter and Hitachi Command Suite for maximum operational efficiency Summary of features  Unified provisioning  Unified configuration  Unified topology  Unified monitoring Unified orchestration and management  Simple to use and scalable  Provides overall health status of all elements and indicates impending failures  Mitigates downtime by directing appropriate actions  Seamlessly integrated with vCenter so customers can leverage existing tools and skills
  17. 17. WHY UCP PRO KEY?  Unified management and VMware vCenter integration ‒ Ability to visualize complete datacenter hardware infrastructure inside vCenter  RESTful public API and CLI for all the UCP software features ‒ Facilitate integration of UCP features with customer’s existing management stack  Unified orchestration ‒ Ability to orchestrate provisioning and configuration of resources across multiple elements  Unified monitoring and troubleshooting ‒ Ability to correlate and troubleshoot physical and virtual elements alerts  Turnkey solution ‒ Pre-installation and pre-integration of UCP hardware and software components and validation of interoperability
  18. 18. BENEFITS  Reduced OPEX ‒ Minimized overhead required to  Provision resources  Monitor data center infrastructure  Manage data center ‒ Efficient troubleshooting: Minimized system downtime  Reduced system provisioning cost ‒ Turnkey solution  Single throat to choke
  19. 19. AGENDA  2012 global economic and IT outlook  Challenges for the data center administrator  Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Pro  Recommendations  Q&A session
  20. 20. TECHNOLOGY RECOMMENDATIONS  Look for converged systems that are prebuilt, pre-integrated and preconfigured  Consider how you’ll manage your converged solution as part of the POC  Look for tight integration between converged infrastructure solutions and your VM management environment
  21. 21. OPERATIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS  Employ automation (provisioning, image deployment, etc.) wherever possible  Insist on measuring time-to-value and time-to-deploy  Take service and support seriously: “One throat to choke”
