Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations

UCP Management Pack for VMware vRealize gives IT administrators visibility into end-to-end topology, from virtual to physical infrastructure, making it possible to optimize resource allocation and reduce mean time to resolution (MTTR). Gain deep visibility into the state of converged infrastructure through inventory, utilization, and performance dashboards.

Hitachi Storage Provider for VMware vCenter enables organizations to deploy software-defined storage solutions for VMware Virtual Volumes (VVols) on Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) systems and the Hitachi NAS Platform. It provides application-centric granular management and storage-policy-based management for agile, simple and efficient IT services. It reduces the operational burden between VI administrators and storage administrators for faster and smarter VM and application services provisioning.

Hitachi Storage Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations

Hitachi Storage Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations integrates the management of physical and virtual layers to significantly reduce mean time to resolution (MTTR) and operational costs. It enables policy-based automation with automated analytics and a correlation matrix for proactive troubleshooting and efficient resource utilization. It provides intuitively consumable dashboards on top consumers, performance and capacity.

Hitachi Storage Connector for VMware vRealize Orchestrator

Hitachi Storage Connector for VMware vRealize Orchestrator facilitates automation and orchestration of tasks that involve Hitachi storage, supporting both block and file operations. It augments the capabilities of VMware vRealize Orchestrator by providing workflows and actions that can automate storage tasks, such as provision storage datastore/LUN workflow, provision NFS datastores, backup SAN datastores, or restore a storage-based VM snapshot hosted on Hitachi storage.

Hitachi Storage plug-in for VMware vCenter is a VMware vCenter 5.1, 5.5 and 6.0 plug-in that provides integrated management of Hitachi storage subsystems within vCenter. The plug-in allows the vCenter administrator to automatically configure ESX hosts to Hitachi storage subsystems. This adapter also supports the VMware vCenter Windows Client.

The administrator can provision, map, and delete storage logical drives from the Hitachi storage subsystem to the ESX host, and view the vCenter datastores to Hitachi storage subsystem logical drives.

Hitachi Storage Replication Adapter

Hitachi Storage Replication Adapter is a software module for the VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) that provides automated failover in a disaster recovery scenario. It also provides nondisruptive disaster recovery testing.

Hitachi Storage Adapter for VMware vSphere API for Array Integration

The VMware API for Array Integration (VAAI) provides storage offload services for VMware vSphere/vCenter environments using NFS datastores. It exposes the capabilities of underlying storage systems, such as hardware file system, VM-level hardware snapshots, and clone operations with file-clone technology, to VMware vCenter.

Hitachi Storage Content Pack for VMware vRealize Log Insight

Hitachi Storage Content Pack for VMware vRealize Log Insight delivers real-time log management to administrators for intelligent analysis and better troubleshooting across physical and virtual infrastructures. It simplifies searching for errors by collecting and grouping information to show important, relevant and useful events. It also provides administrators a comprehensive view into Hitachi storage subsystems, enabling them to spot potential issues and keep track of components that deviate from normal operation.

Hitachi Compute Plug-in for VMware vCenter offers vCenter administrators better awareness and visibility of the physical Hitachi Compute Blade 500 and 2000 servers in the VMware vSphere Web Client. It provides detailed information on virtual machines running on Hitachi servers. It also provides the ability to perform power, LID and remote console operations on Compute Blade 500 and 2000 servers.
