Hitachi Data Systems has announced the latest version of its storage management software, HiCommand 2.0, which the company said features integration of Sun’s StorEdge Resource Manager software and adds Sun StorEdge T3 arrays to its portfolio of managed storage systems.

According to Hitachi, an integrated “link and launch” feature allows administrators with both HiCommand and Sun StorEdge Resource Manager to move across storage management software for a full view of their storage resources. Sun StorEdge Resource Manager software provides reports of the logical and physical attributes associated with a multi-vendor storage environments.
