HDS Adds Clustering Technology for High Availability

Hitachi High Availability Manager for open system environments increases business resilience and efficiency with 100% data accessibility.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Furthering its commitment to economically superior enterprise-class storage innovation, Hitachi Data Systems Corporation, wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. and the only provider of Services Oriented Storage Solutions, today announced the Hitachi High Availability Manager, the industry's first open systems storage array clustering technology that delivers 100% accessibility of business-critical data assets and offers customers future-proofing of their storage investments over time.

In the current climate of economic slowdown and capital constraint, the need for an efficiency optimized storage infrastructure has become paramount. Compounding this challenge is the significant operational risk associated with data migrations as legacy storage systems come off lease, or as a result of extended or unexpected downtime. By consolidating, increasing utilization and improving data mobility through Hitachi virtualization technologies, customers can maximize the investment return and protection of their storage assets and save money. With five years of storage virtualization innovation, customers worldwide continue to invest and rely on Hitachi to curb their most pressing efficiency and data protection pain points.

"In today's difficult economy, IT organizations face tightening budgets but must continue to improve the protection and management of their company's rapidly growing pools of information. One major and fast growing operational cost is the time and money that IT organizations spend to migrate data to new, more cost effective solutions," said Richard Villars, Vice President for Storage Systems and IT Strategies. "Solutions like the Hitachi High Availability Manager provide customers with instantaneous failover and recovery capabilities that can dramatically reduce data management costs while also reducing application downtime."

Breakthrough Hitachi High Availability Manager for the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform V

Built on the foundation of the pioneering Hitachi USP V Platform and its unique ability to manage virtualized devices, the Hitachi High Availability Manager is the industry's first continuous availability solution for both internal storage and externally attached heterogeneous storage--all under common and integrated management. -- Its cutting-edge architecture enables local and remote clustering for seamless, transparent movement of storage pools from one USP V storage platform to another system, with zero disruption to business operations.
