Replication and Data Protection

Hitachi Local Replication

This solution delivers convenient and cost-effective local point-in-time data copies using storage-based, space-efficient snapshots and full-volume clones. It generates copies faster and more frequently than host-based solutions, with no impact on production applications. This software package includes Hitachi Thin Image Snapshot, Hitachi ShadowImage Replication and Hitachi Replication Manager software.

Hitachi Remote Replication

Highly flexible remote replication solution enables disaster recovery and business continuity spanning up to three data centers. It uses a combination of synchronous and asynchronous replication plus advanced journaling and delta synchronization to minimize data loss. The software package includes Hitachi TrueCopy Remote Replication, Hitachi Universal Replicator and Hitachi Replication Manager software.

Data-at-rest encryption

This feature provides encryption of data-at-rest for internal storage to protect sensitive information.

Hitachi Ops Center Protector

Hitachi Ops Center Protector software automates and orchestrates a broad range of data copy and movement technologies to deliver enterprise copy data management services. Recovery copy services support local and remote recovery requirements, using modern data protection techniques. Agile copy services automate and control the repurposing of data copies for secondary business purposes. And governance copy services enable the use of backup data for discovery and analytics operations.

Notes:

* The Total Efficiency Guarantee of up to 7:1 for the VSP G350, G370, G700 and G900 models, when configured entirely with flash drives, covers savings from data deduplication, compression, thin provisioning and snapshots.

**RAID-1 selection mirrors blocks across two drives and then creates a striped set across multiple drive pairs. This is commonly referred to as RAID 1+0.

1MB = 1,000,000 bytes

1MiB = 1,048,576 bytes

SFF = small form factor, LFF = large form factor

SAS = serial attached SCSI, HDD = hard disk drive, SSD = solid state disk, FMD = flash module drive

FC = Fibre Channel, iSCSI = Internet Small Computer Systems Interface, FCoE = Fibre Channel over Ethernet, FICON = Fibre Connection
