Backup, recovery, replication, archive and search in a single offering
Hitachi Data Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, has unveiled an updated version of its enterprise data protection suite, the Hitachi Data Protection Suite (HDPS).
The company said that its new suite is powered by CommVault technology, and helps enterprise customers increase the efficiency of their data centres, and offers tools to help protect data within physical and virtualised environments, including cloud setups.
The HDPS is built up on a single Windows-based engine and can be used for recovery, continuous data replication, and data deduplication to manage data in virtualised environments.
Hitachi said that the Data Protection Suite uses disk to disk technology (D2D) during backup and recovery operations and optimises tiered storage by providing file level data movement from one tier of storage to another.
The offering provides cataloging, indexing, moving, archiving for unstructured data in non-compliance environments, deduplication from the source and target, enhancements to virtualisation, automated discovery and retention compliance.
The HDPS also features: third generation deduplication; end user web desktop console for unified policy management, search and data recovery; support for Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) storage and data management; capacity licensing; file tiering and archiving to HCP and AMS systems; and general use of secondary storage for disk-to-disk backup and remote site protection.
Hitachi Data Systems vice president of Corporate and Product Marketing Asim Zaheer said organisations everywhere are being challenged to keep up with rapidly growing volumes of data, shrinking back-up windows, and increasing demands for data availability
"Our new Hitachi Data Protection Suite addresses these challenges by setting new standards for protecting the continuum of data from physical to virtual – including data that resides in the cloud," Zaheer said.
"With modern data management, we are also extending the benefits of our hardware and software solutions to give customers unprecedented control over their mission-critical information."
