1. Can Hitachi Data Center Analytics be used in OpenStack environments?

Yes, it can. All the metrics are gathered directly from the devices using their respective APIs and are kept in a very optimized and compressed way in the HDCA database. The database can be queried using HDCA specific SQL language and used for OpenStack management and provisioning. For example, the query could be executed as part of a Heat template.

2. Is the Hitachi Data Center Analytics licensed on a per GB, per CPU or per Host (or VM) basis?

HDCA is licensed per usable capacity, using the same rules and price bands as Hitachi Tuning Manager.

Hitachi Data Center Analytics is designed to measure and report on Hitachi Storage, and there are products/drivers for OpenStack implementations to leverage Hitachi's block storage.

Not having used Hitachi Data Center Analytics or Hitachi Storage personally, I am not aware of the costs involved or the license schema.
