Hitachi Vantara announced the expansion of its E Series line of high performance NVMe all-flash arrays, additions to the HNAS family of NAS solutions, and introduced the Hitachi Virtual Storage as a Service aimed at midsized enterprises. The company also unveiled new initiatives designed to enable channel partners to help midsized enterprise customers accelerate into a new era of digital business platforms and ecosystems. With data volumes growing nearly twice as fast as IT budgets (19% Y/Y vs. 10% Y/Y)1 , a critical pain point is storing and making that data accessible for customers and their applications. With fewer IT staff and resources, midsize customers are eager for reliable solutions that can reduce their storage costs and drive efficiencies. Hitachi Vantara’s solutions address the most important needs of midmarket buyers, providing outstanding value and pricing for customers and partners.
“Hitachi Vantara has long been the gold standard for high-performance data storage but today we are raising the bar for midmarket storage too,” said Bobby Soni, president, Digital Infrastructure, Hitachi Vantara. “We are enabling all the industry leading capabilities and intelligent software that have fueled the success of the VSP 5000 down market to our new Eseries midmarket products, with aggressive price points and enhanced ease of use. With our new as-a-Service offering, we’re further easing the burden of managing infrastructure so customers can focus on what matters most – managing their business.”
