Hitachi Data Systems Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, this week announced Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer 2.0, an all-in-one availability and performance monitoring software product for midsized business IT environments.
Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer simplifies IT management by allowing customers to monitor the availability of servers, switches and storage devices from one screen. At the same time it reduces the mean time to diagnose (MTTD) IT infrastructure outages, resolving one of the key pain points for midsized organizations.
In a single interface, Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer shows the availability and performance of the heterogeneous servers, LAN, SAN and storage devices on a network. The patent-pending root cause analysis feature enables a key benefit – the reduction of MTTD in IT environment outages by up to 90 percent. Additionally, Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer has the capability to integrate with independent software vendor (ISV) applications and third party devices, via plug-ins, providing unified monitoring of the entire network infrastructure.
Hitachi IT Operations Analyzer has all the essential features needed to monitor the performance and availability of midsized organizations’ IT assets. New features in version 2.0 include:
- Enhanced virtualization support including Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere
- Expanded device monitoring – up to 750 nodes per license
- Now supports Hitachi Universal Storage Platform® VM, Microsoft Hyper-V, SUSE Linux, Cisco ISR, Extreme, Linksys/Cisco (SGE) and Enterasys.
- Partner and ISV enabled plug-in development (open platform)
