Hitachi Data Systems announces the general availability of TrueCopy heterogeneous replication software for EMC and IBM storage systems. This product empowers customers to replicate data to and from the storage systems connected to the Hitachi TagmaStore Universal storage platform. Leveraging the advanced controller-based virtualisation capabilities of the Universal Storage Platform, the replication enables customers to replicate data to and from the storage systems attached to the platform to any other universal storage platform and better protect data. The technology eliminates the need to run multiple storage-based replication services, as customers can now run all replication from the platform with complete data integrity and security. This can result in cost savings based on single-system management, as Hu Yoshida, chief technology officer at Hitachi Data Systems, sheds light: “Hitachi has truly simplified storage management.” TrueCopy heterogeneous replication support is now available for EMC Symmetrix DMX 800, 1000, 2000, 3000 and Symmetrix 3000, 5000 and 8000 series storage systems. It can also be applied to EMC CLARiiON CX series storage systems, IBM FastT900/DS4000 and IBM Shark ESS800 models. Hitachi Data Systems will be continually adding support for other storage systems. With TrueCopy running on the Universal storage platform, customers can implement remote mirroring for their data that resides on expensive, high performance storage systems to lower cost systems for data protection and disaster recovery. Hitachi also announces the introduction of the TagmaStore Quick Start service for TrueCopy heterogeneous replication software. With this new offering, Hitachi Data Systems will provide each customer with a dedicated team to plan and manage the TrueCopy installation and implementation for heterogeneous environments.
