It’s been busy week for us here in Las Vegas at the Hitachi NEXT 2019 conference!
We announced the VSP 5000 which is the core data storage foundation for modern enterprise infrastructure.  We also announced a strategic alliance with DisneyHitachi Vantara is now the Official Ride and Show Analytics Provider of the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida and the Disneyland® Resort in California to help create intelligent, data-driven solutions that will enhance the operational efficiency of shows and attractions.

Our announcement included updates to our storage management, automation and analytics product suite.  Hitachi Ops Center allows VSP customers to effectively manage, automate, optimize, plan, troubleshoot and protect Hitachi AI-enabled infrastructures.  Ops Center combines key administrative and operational capabilities into a new suite of products that includes Ops Center Analyzer, Ops Center Automator and Ops Center Administrator.

The storage management landscape has shifted significantly, and today’s users expect simplicity.   The process of onboarding a storage system and the ongoing day to day management of the system has to be easy.  Intuitive dashboards are no longer nice to have – they’re required.  Users no longer tolerate antiquated, complex management tools and demand ease of use, simplicity and modern storage management. 
Hitachi Ops Center Administrator’s design allows generalist admins to easily perform the daily operational tasks of provisioning storage, giving more experienced admins the freedom to perform the advanced architectural tasks that are more strategic to their business.

Hitachi Vantara’s modern storage management initiative begins with Hitachi Ops Center Administrator.
By design, Ops Center Administrator is built to simplify day to day storage management operations.  The moment the centralized operations dashboard appears, the status gauges provides you with an at-a-glance overview of your storage assets.  You can immediately determine their storage capacity utilization of all storage resources that are registered in Ops Center Administrator.

Ops Center Administrator also provides smart guidance as you create provisioning workflows and has intelligent algorithms that provide default settings based on known best practices.  This helps you optimize time spent making storage management deployment operations decisions and assists in delivering optimal results of workflow from onboarding a new storage system to provisioning additional storage to an application.
Ops Center Administrator removes the complexity that Device Manager exposed and replaces it with simplified, best practice workflows.  By design, Ops Center Administrator workflows and tasks are exponentially faster than Device Manager.

Hitachi Ops Center Administrator is the federated storage management software our users expect and deserve. 

Ops Center Administrator delivers modern storage management and will fully support your day to day storage management operations.
