Hitachi Data Instance Director v6.5 Offers Non-Disruptive Data Governance Copy Services
Hitachi Vantara, a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., has introduced Hitachi Data Instance Director (HDID) v6.5, which enables the long-term retention and reuse of managed copy data to support a range of secondary applications.
HDID has already helped customers protect critical databases and applications using modern snapshot and replication technologies. This newest version helps organizations to reuse and monetize their unstructured backup data, with no impact to the primary production environment.
HDID provides modern data protection and recovery copy services that meet strict data-availability and service-level requirements.
With this new release, HDID uses the integration of Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) as a storage repository for long-term file system backups. Backup data increases storage and recurring costs, though its value is realized only when data is recovered. HDID v6.5 provides recovery copy services using modern data protection technologies, agile copy services enabling the repurposing of the copied data, and governance copy services to manage long-term retention and support data discovery and analytics.
HDID v6.5 sends file system backups to HCP in a native file or object format. The backup data can then be used by Hitachi Content Intelligence and Hitachi’s Pentaho analytics software to provide compliance-related and search capabilities, data-driven insights and other new data management use cases.
According to the vendor, this release addresses the needs of customers, data management professionals, and backup administrators by letting organizations make greater use of their backup data to support a wide range of secondary operations, including data discovery, governance and compliance, analytics, DevOps and more.
