Hitachi Vantara today rolled out multiple new hybrid cloud products and services that delivers agility, scalability, and flexibility for private and hybrid cloud operating models.
The right cloud strategy accelerates an organization’s ability to deliver data-driven experiences by providing on-demand access to a host of data processing, management, analytics, and storage applications. But cloud is complex, with different operating models, legacy infrastructure, a shortage of cloud talent, and issues with security and compliance. Hitachi Vantara delivers as per the position and phase of its customers’ cloud journey and supports them with innovative cloud operating models and superior performance and resiliency.
The new hybrid cloud products and services from Hitachi Vantara are engineered for data-driven organizations that want to automate and simplify their infrastructure and operations to capture the full value of the cloud operating model across on-prem, near-cloud, and public cloud.
The new cloud products include Virtual Storage Software Block (VSS Block), a software-defined data platform that extends Hitachi’s virtual storage platform to cloud native applications; VSP E1090, a next generation mid-range storage array with new virtual storage scale out capabilities; Hitachi Ops Center Clear Sight, an AI-driven cloud management tool to support Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform with simplified cloud-based reporting and analytics; Hitachi Cloud Connect, to deliver a near-cloud solution with deep integration into public cloud extending the data fabric to support cloud applications from the leading public cloud providers; and Unified Compute Platform RS, the latest hyperconverged “cloud in a box” offering and Hitachi’s cloud data protection appliance to ensure data security across hybrid cloud operating models.
“We are accelerating the pace of delivering new hybrid cloud products and services to enable our customers to find innovate ways to enhance their data drive-driven outcomes today, and in the near future,” said Mark Ablett, president, Digital Infrastructure Business Unit at Hitachi Vantara. “By enabling the right cloud strategy with greater automation and simplicity, we allow our customers to divert valuable resources and talent that can be used on AI and data analytics to help them accelerate their ability to find new ways to improve the digital experience of their business.”
“By combining Hitachi Vantara and VMware technologies we can address the primary challenges customers face with traditional Hybrid Cloud environments,” said John Gilmartin, senior vice president and GM, Cloud Storage and Data at VMware. “Hitachi’s UCP RS and VMware Cloud Foundation can deliver the agility, operational consistency and efficiency to reduce cost and complexity while improving time to market with new applications and offerings.”
“Enterprises across the board are realizing the benefits of hybrid cloud to best serve their data and applications needs but no two environments are the same and data operations can become stifled across data silos,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC. “Whether you’re just beginning or have an established multi-cloud environment, Hitachi Vantara’s new infrastructure solutions deliver a variety of options to help connect data and applications seamlessly from edge to core to cloud with the operational agility and as a service offerings of the public cloud.”
