Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd., has announced a new portfolio of converged infrastructure and software solutions for Oracle Database 12c environments. These solutions, including Hitachi UCP 6000 for Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) and Hitachi Database Infrastructure Evaluation Tool (DIET) help lower the total cost of Oracle RAC 12c infrastructure through optimising hardware resources, streamlining operations and accelerating the migration to Cloud-based business. These new solutions, combined with Pentaho’s data integration, visualisation and analytics capabilities enable organisations to quickly unlock valuable insights from all data, including those contained within critical applications like SAP Business Warehouse and Oracle E-Business Suite.
Hitachi DIET, developed by top Oracle Database experts at HDS and used with more than 800 global companies over the past eight years, is a simple-to-use, powerful utility that helps customers improve Oracle Database performance and increase utilisation of the underlying storage, compute and network infrastructure. With just a few clicks, DIET provides a detailed graphical analysis and expert recommendations on how to address areas within an Oracle database environment that often leads to significant reductions in capital and operational expenses as well as improved performance. DIET is a powerful way to streamline existing infrastructure and kick-start the transformation to the Cloud and a real-time data-driven enterprise.
“Hitachi Data Systems has built a simple, yet powerful, web-based utility to quickly and effectively identify issues found in Oracle Databases,” said Nik Rouda, Senior Analyst at ESG. “With DIET, HDS can provide deep analysis of a customer’s actual Oracle environment, then use those results and their decades of hands-on experience to provide clear recommendations, which are tailored specifically to them. DIET can even diagnose issues with other vendor’s hardware.”
Because of Hitachi Data Systems’ heritage of engineering, the most reliable and Cloud-ready converged storage, compute and software solutions, more than eighty per cent of the Fortune Global 100 run Oracle Databases and applications on Hitachi solutions. As one of only nine Global Diamond Partners with Oracle, the close collaboration between companies gives customers access to complete, end-to-end solutions optimised for any Oracle environment. Hitachi UCP 6000 for Oracle RAC, Hitachi DIET and Pentaho provide the complete and cost-effective portfolio of solutions for Oracle Databases that enable business to gain agility as well as derive rich insights from all their data.
Jim Beckman, Vice President of Global Alliances and Business Development at HDS, said, “Hitachi is the leading provider of solutions enabling organisations to get the most out of their investments in Oracle Database, extract more value from their data, and better control TCO. UCP 6000 for Oracle RAC and Hitachi DIET enable flexibility to deploy Oracle and non-Oracle workloads on a variety of hypervisors and operating systems, in either virtualised or bare metal environments.”
