Hitachi Data Systems Corporation announced a leap forward in its technology leadership for delivering software-defined infrastructures in the Middle East.
In addition to enabling customers to simplify IT and free data from traditional hardware and location constraints it also makes it more accessible for all existing and new analytics-driven workloads.
These new and enhanced offerings have been designed to help customers achieve greater levels of information access through virtualised, hyper-converged and scale-out platforms that are built to accelerate the journey to IT as a service (ITaaS) through application-led, software-defined architectures. Hitachi Data Systems also unveiled new solutions and services to make society safer, smarter and healthier to the Middle East.
To effectively unlock the value of a software-defined infrastructure, technology must simplify operations through automation, drive insight through better access to information, and improve agility through abstraction that turns fixed assets into flexible resources.
Hitachi Data Systems is delivering on those goals by extending its Hitachi Storage Virtualisation Operating System (SVOS) to an expanded Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) family. It will also be expanding the Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) family to cover core to edge or small to large converged and hyper-converged infrastructure models, and introduce the Hitachi Hyper Scale-Out Platform (HSP) for fast-growing data analytics workloads. Lastly, it will bring new software to the market to automate the provisioning and protection of application environments.
“As the global IT horizon starts shifting, the needs and wants of the Middle East also develops and migrates to sleeker, more responsive options. With this new solution, we are able to open opportunities to the mid-market while simplifying operations. It is an exciting time for us as we introduce this truly unique opportunity to the region,” said Aaron White, General Manager for Middle East and Turkey, Hitachi Data Systems.
