  • KEY FEATURE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN VERSION 6 AND VERSION 7 OF HITACHI DEVICE MANAGER5
  • HITACHI DEVICE MANAGER V7Hitachi Device Manager (HDvM) v7 -> Hitachi Command Suite (HCS) v7 Simplifies storage management and saves operational costs! Easy to deploy Simple to use Task oriented Fast and scalable Cloud ready Automated Novice Simple to Advanced Complex
  • COMMON MANAGEMENT FOR ALL STORAGE Hitachi is the first storage company to provide common software management across its entire product line!Functionality and Performance Hitachi Command Suite Configuration, Provisioning, Performance Analytics, Replication, Reporting, Data Mobility HNAS HCP AMS 2100 AMS 2300 AMS 2500 USP V and VM • AMS = Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage VSP • HCP = Hitachi Content Platform • HNAS = Hitachi NAS Platform • USP V = Hitachi Universal Storage Platform® V • USP VM = Hitachi Universal Storage Platform VM • VSP = Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform
  • HITACHI DEVICE MANAGER V7INTEGRATED HITACHI COMMAND SUITE INSTALLER  No special knowledge or additional services are required to install and use  One DVD for installing all Hitachi Command Suite software • One setup.exe to initiate the installer then choose which product to install • Products are enabled by installing additional license keys Hitachi Hitachi Hitachi Device Tiered Replication Manager Storage Manager Manager Core Storage Resource Management
  • HITACHI DEVICE MANAGER V7AGENTLESS HOST DISCOVERYDiscovers hosts, virtual machines Share host configurations with other HCS productsand applications without deployinghost agents  Uses public interfaces provided by managed objects, e.g. WMI for Microsoft Windows Collect data remotely with WMI or SSHAgent deployment (core agent)  Optionally required to do certain tasks that the public interface does not support, i.e. host provisioning
  • HITACHI DEVICE MANAGER V7TASK MANAGEMENT General Tasks puts the most common tasks in an easy to find place.  Common tasks storage administrators would typically need to use on a daily basis.
