SANTA CLARA, Calif. — May 24, 2011 — Hitachi Data Systems Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE: HIT), today announced enhancements to its replication and data protection software suite, Hitachi Dynamic Replicator (HDR). The enhancements help large enterprises meet recovery time and recovery point objectives remotely and locally for data and applications, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server and Oracle, in physical and virtual environments. Building on its success with midsize companies, the new HDR now extends to large enterprises to minimize business disruption by continuously collecting data changes as they occur, all while they upgrade to the latest in Hitachi storage technologies like Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP).
“Disaster recovery is a critical concern for organizations of all sizes as they strive to improve the data resilience of their operations. Specifically, large enterprises are dealing with rapid data growth that requires simplified and cost-effective data protection and replication solutions for disaster planning and operational recovery in physical and virtual environments,” said Sean Moser, vice president, Storage Software Product Management, Hitachi Data Systems. “Hitachi Dynamic Replicator enables customers to meet these demand requirements by continuously capturing and replicating data as it changes, making the data nearly instantly available for recovery – all while being completely transparent to the file systems, applications and network.”
