HITACHI DATA SYSTEMS and VMware to offer Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Solutions for Cloud Environments

HITACHI DATA SYSTEMS

Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) announces new hyper-converged infrastructure solutions and software enhancements for VMware environments.

The latest Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) 1000 for VMware EVO:RAIL is a simple, pre-built and fully optimized hyper-converged appliance that is designed for rapid, low-cost deployment of remote office, test and development, virtual desktop and similar virtualized solutions.

The solutions help eliminate complexity, protect workloads and reduce operational expenses, and are particularly helpful for partners and customers who want to transform traditional data centers and embrace private and hybrid cloud environments.

Like the existing UCP family from Hitachi Data Systems, UCP 1000 for VMware EVO:RAIL provides enterprise converged infrastructure solutions that easily support core-to-edge IT workloads and simplifies increasingly complex data centers, and now remote offices.

Talking on the commencement, Ravi Chalaka, Vice President of Solutions Marketing and Social Innovation, Hitachi Data Systems said, “Increasingly, organizations are transitioning from dedicated, separate compute, networking and storage systems to converged and hyper-converged infrastructure architectures to accelerate time to value and simplify data center management. We also see growing demand for functionality, performance and reliability as organizations deploy private and hybrid cloud.” “In collaboration with VMware, our long-time strategic partner, we are pleased to now offer new solutions and functionalities to enable partners and customers to meet their business objectives.”

Hitachi also announced new VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes support for the industry-leading Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) G1000. The Hitachi implementation of VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes allows customers to automate and take full advantage of granular VM control and policy-based management of VM growth and drive greater data center efficiency.

For simple, cost-effective data protection, Hitachi UCP 1000 for VMware EVO:RAIL offers:

  • Optional integration with Hitachi Data Ingestor software that allows for “bottomless backup” on-premise with Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) or in the cloud with Hitachi Cloud Service for Content Archiving.
  • Hitachi UCP 1000 for VMware EVO:RAIL provides customers with the flexibility and agility they need in remote office and other environments at a lower cost than other solutions.

Additional Features

A new release of Hitachi Virtual Infrastructure Integrator 3.0, a comprehensive data protection and management solution that is specific to VMware vSphere, simplifies data management for file and block storage and allows scheduled and instantaneous backup, recovery and cloning services. It also helps customers meet backup and recovery service levels at the VM level while improving resource utilization.

Toni Adams, Vice President, Global Partner Marketing, VMware further adds, “For years, VMware and HDS have worked together to help customers on their journey to the unified hybrid cloud by developing new, reliable solutions that are simple to use and can support growing business needs.” “Building on that partnership, we are continuing to work closely with HDS to help our customers accelerate time to value, with infrastructure that can protect workloads and enable reduced operational expenses.”
