Structure Of Chloral Hydrate.

Updated
Norman Houghton Says:

The name chloral hydrate indicates this is a hydrate, but the systematic chemical name indicates it is not, but that it is a diol. However, it is not usual for an organic compound to have 2 hydroxyl groups on the same carbon atom without splitting out water. What is the correct situation here?
