Hitachi Data Systems Sessions:

 

Availability and Applications - the Missing Links to Resiliency and Successful Recovery

Roselinda Schulman - Director, Data Protection (Hitachi Data Systems)

Rebecca Levesque - Chief Executive Officer  (21st Century Software)

Monday, August 01, 2016: 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Room: L507, Atlanta Marriott Marquis Session Number: 19602

 

Many resiliency plans have no awareness of interdependencies with other database or batch applications.  Recovery of corruption or a rollback in time from one application may disruption others down the line when the wrong point in time or consistency point is chosen.  Unravelling and correcting misapplied recovery point causes additional delay in return to normal operations.  Today’s world of 24/7 online transaction requires knowledge of what is the right copy to restore and in what order to minimize downstream impact.  Regardless of the resiliency strategy selected, time to data is the primary driver for business and processing resumption.  With an average of 12 to 15 copies of data out there, does your crash consistency point meet your SLA and have you considered all the variables, including batch?


VSP G1000 Storage Update - Latest and Greatest

William Smith – Americas Product Manager (Hitachi Data Systems)

Ros Schulman – Director, Data Protection (Hitachi Data Systems)

Wednesday, August 03, 2016: 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

Room: L406, Atlanta Marriott Marquis Session Number: 19620


In this session, the speaker will detail the VSP G1000 storage architecture and latest information update.  The update will include a discussion of updated features, new features, and improved functionality.  We will also discuss how to meet storage performance requirements in the Z systems environment.

Thursday, August 04, 2016: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Room: A701, Atlanta Marriott Marquis Session Number: 19979

 

We know that Flash is fast, but just how fast compared to tried and true 15K RPM HDD? Hitachi compared the performance of 39TB of spinning disk with 39TB of Flash with remarkable results. In this discussion we’ll discuss how 200 Mopeds compare with 8 Ferraris in the Hitachi VSP G1000. We’ll also be discussing the increased performance of the 16Gb FICON channel adapter. It’s all speeds and feeds, baby!

UBS (Partner) Session:


Restoring 43TB and Applying 2.2 Billion DB2 Log Records Within 4 Hours, and Proving It on a Live Production System!

Bjarne Nelson (DB2 Lead Architect – UBS)

Thursday, August 04, 2016: 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM

Room: L406, Atlanta Marriott Marquis Session Number: 19766

 

Most IT installations have Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) in place for business critical applications, but proving that such objectives can be met is not always a given. In particular, for worst case scenarios like recovery to a Point in Time (PIT), which is entirely different challenge than fail over to a secondary site.

Challenges involve defining and validating subsets of data as you may not have time to recover everything, at least not in the first wave. As such you must focus on what is really required to support truly business critical functions to operate. Secondly you may have to acquire and deploy new technologies to address the need for speed to meet aggressive RTOs. As you start deploying new technologies you’ll learn what works, but more importantly also identify implied pitfalls and understand how to work around them. Finally, you’ll have to prove that everything works as designed and that RTOs can actually be met, which evidently means simulating such PIT recovery scenarios on a live production system while you are still serving your normal business operating in a 24 by 7 all year round modus.

Through this presentation you'll get an understanding about how this was achieved at UBS in terms of well-defined processes and deploying state of the art technology both on the hardware side as well software side

  • Managing the RTO Objective – Defining Spec's and Requirements
  • The different dimensions of Big and what the system setup looks like
  • Mission accomplish: Performing point in time recovery simulation with a RTO of less than 4 hours
  • Lessons learned and things to keep in mind

Hitachi will be at the Internet of Things World, booth #310 in Santa Clara CA, May 10-12 showcasing various IoT-enabled solutions one of which focuses on oil field optimization.  This solution is one of the more interesting ones I've seen as we are in a climate that encourages greater energy independence.  Various producers are obtaining oil and natural gas from various drilling wells from shale formations all over the United States. 
However, due to numerous challenges including economic uncertainty, lower oil prices, and higher drilling costs, upstream shale producers are constantly looking for new ways to harness resources more efficiently.  With the advent of advanced analytics and
the Internet of Things (aka IoT), companies can now leverage the vast amount of data coming from the field to gain new insights into their shale well operations. 
Oil.jpg
The research team from Hitachi’s Global Center for Social Innovation in Santa Clara have developed a
solution that enables shale well producers to use historical and real-time data to gain deeper insights into well performance including the ability to test hypotheses and understand better why each well is performing in a specific manner.

 

Join us at Internet of Things World and speak directly to the Hitachi research team as well as various members of Hitachi’s IoT group so you too can gain achieve energy independence with IoT. 

 

Register here for a FREE IoT World Exhibition hall pass.

Join Hitachi at IoT World, May 10-12 at the Santa Clara Convention Center

in Santa Clara, CA


Visit Hitachi in Booth #310 and get a chance to see for yourself how our IoT solutions,

including Predictive Maintenance, can solve your most pressing business issues.


Final-IOT-logo.jpg

Analytics-based predictive maintenance allows you to sense when and where outages are likely to occur to prevent downtime and increase asset utilization. A breakdown can delay processes and cost your business much more than the cost of repair. Predictive maintenance technologies let you know when repairs should be made and back-up systems readied to promote end-to-end optimization.

With Hitachi Predictive Maintenance solutions, you can:

  • Detect anomalies and certain failure patterns to determine the greatest risk or problems or asset failure.
  • Perform maintenance at a certain scheduled time when it can be most cost effective and before equipment loses performance within a threshold.
  • Enable maintenance staff to take the right actions at the right times, to avoid unexpected failures, decrease maintenance costs and increase equipment availability.
