I am not a HDS partner. How can I download HDS simulators.
Thank you all for your contributions to this thread.
To address the initial question by Ashok, access to most tools and simulators require you to be a HDS partner as these are hosted from portals requiring a login, such as Partner Connect and the Global Demonstration and Learning Lab (GDLL).
-Partner Connect is the main landing spot for registered partners offering access to various assets.
-The GDLL is a portal designed to allow partners to test HDS solutions remotely/virtually using live systems and software.
-A partner program for HCP AW use, or OVA demo's for various HCP AW use cases via FastSTART are available as well as HNAS Simulator that can be loaded on a laptop.
For non-partners there are a couple of open areas such as
-HDS Community https://community.hds.com/
-HDS Developer Network including GitHub repository Hitachi Developer Network
-Hitachi Content Platform TryAnywhere site Trial Software : Register for an HCP-Anywhere Trial Account
Your local HDS office should be able to offer additional assistance but if you have any additional questions I'll be happy to try and assist.
I believe they are only available to HDS employees and partners
Not even partners have the possibility of simulators. I think there is much potentiall for HDS if they would have simulators for there storage systems, but also their fantastic software portfolio like HDID or Virtual Infrastructure Integrator. Also to show our customers the value and the ease of use of the modern HDS management software suites.
Things like HCP and HCP-Anywhere would be better known if free (but capacity limited) were made available for a wider audience.
