Previous Solutions

This is the first time we used such solution for data/volume movement between tiers.

Initial Setup


Implementation Team

With vendor team as per the SOW, but easy installation & configuration. Blends easily into HiCommand Suite.


Very nice ROI, happy that it works when we are in need.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Cost is only the license.

Other Solutions Considered

This is vendor specific product. Works on Hitachi arrays or arrays virtualized via Hitachi arrays. So no reason to evaluate other products.
