    • WEBTECH EDUCATIONAL SERIES Storage Analytics: Transform Storage into a Business Enabler Attend this webinar session to learn how you can transform your storage infrastructure into a business enabler. You will learn • Tips and tricks to streamline storage performance monitoring across your Hitachi environment • How to define and enforce performance and capacity objectives for key business applications by establishing storage service-level management • How to create storage service-level management reports that satisfy the needs of multiple IT stakeholders (i.e., CIO, architect, administrator)
    • DATA CENTER MANAGEMENT
    • DATA CENTER MANAGEMENT
    • HITACHI COMMAND SUITE  Across all tiers of storage  Across management functions  Across file, block and content UNIFIED MANAGEMENT Unified Management Framework Configure Analyze Mobilize Protect Business Intelligence ApplianceFile ContentUnifiedBlock HDIHNAS HCPHUSVSP, USP, AMS, HUS
    • HITACHI COMMAND SUITE 1. Single-point view 2. View from business and storage perspective 3. Unified management Configuration Performance Mobility Reporting Analysis
    • HITACHI DEVICE MANAGER (HDVM) Among other things, HDvM allows storage administrators to  Provision / unallocate storage to hosts  Carve LDEVs  Virtualize volumes  Manage pools (create, expand, shrink, delete) ‒ Hitachi Dynamic Provisioning ‒ Hitachi Dynamic Tiering  Collect against hosts ‒ Understand host to storage correlation ‒ Report on host capacity usage, mappings, memberships in groups, etc.  Create point-in-time reports of storage, including ‒ Capacity utilization (% used, RAW, usable, etc.) ‒ Host mappings and storage paths ‒ Array configurations DEVICE MANAGER
    • MANAGE PERFORMANCE WITH HITACHI TUNING MANAGER Tuning Manager provides the ability to monitor and manage performance from the host down to the storage (end to end) SVR SAN LUN CACHE RAID/PHYS LUN Appls. Canned and custom reports - Capture “normal” profile for each host - Know when it becomes “abnormal” For hosts where performance is critical; not on every host HTnM Performance detail for every key component response time Agent Set performance threshold alerts - Detect the problem before the server team does  Host to Storage correlation - Drill down by application to tune for better performance - Host to storage response time  Array Performance detail - I/O response time within the array - Utilization/bottleneck analysis from controller port to spindle throughput
