Getting the right data to the right place at the right time is top of mind for most businesses today. The challenges are vast: data is more diverse and distributed than ever and it is siloed across applications, clouds and internal tools. This adds to the rising cost and complexity of storing and managing data.

A key element in addressing these challenges is automated IT Infrastructure management. Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Advisor (UCP Advisor), management automation software, offers simplified and centralized management to reduce the complexity of server, storage, and network management across converged and hyperconverged systems, data centers, and clouds.

We’ve got a lot to talk about in the way of automated management at Hitachi NEXT October 8-10 in Las Vegas including these enhancements in the latest release of UCP Advisor 3.0:

UI
  • HTML5 client plug-in for storage operations in parity with Web Client Plug-in
  • Day 0 Automated deployment now supports deployment of UCP Converged Infrastructure
    • Automated deployment of UCP HC V225 (DS225 Compute)
    • Refreshed UI with flexible deployment workflow
Benefit: Simple and flexible UCP Advisor day 0 deployment can now deploy any UCP HC or CI virtualization system.

Hardware
  • Cascade Lake compute support
  • Support DS225 (UCP HC V225) Day 0 deployment
Benefit: Day 0 deployment of UCP systems now cover all the HC models

Security
  • Improve UCP Advisor access security by allowing only authorized users to access UCP systems
    • Username tracking for auditability 
    • Support Active Directory Authentication for compute nodes 
Benefit: Helps improve the security by allowing only people who are authorized to access UCP

Integrations
  • Integration improvements: Support Latest Versions of vRealize stack (vRLI, vRO) with latest packs
  • Latest vRealize Log Insight Content Pack to cover DSxxx compute syslog
Benefit:  more dashboards for log analysis and auditing for switches and compute
