Smart Automation Manager for Hitachi (SAM4H) is a rule based storage management and report tool for Hitachi Storage Arrays. It helps storage engineers and operators to manage large SAN storage environments by automating storage provisioning tasks. SAM4H can be used both for clustered (server- and storage-clusters) and unclustered environments.

It avoid mistakes caused by undocumented storage mapping tasks. The inbuilt reports helps documenting the storage environment and can be used to charge back storage costs to internal customers. SAM4H uses CCI and Raidcom to communicate with the storage arrays.
