Introduction As cloud technologies continue to expand, it’s important that your business leverages cloud technologies to ensure high availability for your products. Although having a physical storage system serve as a quorum at a third site increases redundancy, using global-active device cloud quorum gives you access to more sites increasing the availability of your solution. Additionally, you no longer need to pay for maintenance and deployment of the third storage system because all computing resources are hosted in the cloud and you are only charged on-demand for hardware usage. Global-Active Device Cloud Quorum Global-active device cloud quorum is ...

Previously ( VMware protection in Hitachi Data Instance Director - Part 1: Selection ) I wrote about the options provided for selecting Virtual Machines via the HDID user interface. This is a great introduction to show off the capabilities of what HDID makes possible, but what if you're a DevOps type and clicking buttons isn't really "your thing"? Well, thankfully there's the HDID REST API, and even more helpfully the HDID SDK. n this blog post I'll go through the required API calls to create the ESX node and use it to build a Policy that selects Virtual Machines by id, name and tag. I'll also try and follow up each blog post with ...

Hitachi Vantara has had a long and successful partnership with VMware, with many integration points between our products and the VMware ecosystem. At the center of these integrations is the acknowledgement that VMware administrators want to manage their data and infrastructure from within the familiar VMware environment, and not have to jump between different tools and interfaces to complete their job functions. This partnership extends to data protection and copy data management. Not all data, and therefore not all virtual machines, have the same value to your organization, so ideally you would prefer to use the right tools that meet the availability, ...
