Hitachi Command Suite is an over-arching suite of storage management tools that include storage resource management, tiered storage management, and storage system management. The complete suite of tools can be used for managing Hitachi storage systems and for monitoring and reporting on all elements in the storage infrastructure. The storage resource management feature of Command Suite has agentless host discovery. Deploying agents allow more advanced management functions.
The Command Suite has a common GUI across the set of tools and uses shared data repositories and automated task management. The task management allows execution of actions immediately or scheduled for delayed execution. Also included with Command Suite is an integrated set of use case workflows to simplify common management tasks such as creating a shared storage pool or provisioning a new storage volume.
