Hitachi, Ltd., Hitachi Data Systems and IBM extend interoperability for storage systems, servers and software.
As part of the agreement, Hitachi will license a portion of IBM's eServer zSeries enterprise storage related interface technologies for use in Hitachi storage platforms as well as future technologies. IBM has licensed the FICON/ESCON attachment specification for its high-end IBM TotalStorage DS8000 Series and IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server to Hitachi. The license will help Hitachi be better positioned to support clients who want the benefits of IBM's industry leading Global and Metro Mirroring capabilities, z/OS Global Mirror, FlashCopy, Parallel Access Volumes (PAV), and GDPS functions in an environment that includes IBM TotalStorage products as well as enterprise storage products marketed globally by Hitachi Data Systems as the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform Series, including its OEM and co-branded variants.
