HDS Unveils Lineup Of Software-Defined Solutions

Designed For All Transactional and Analytics-Driven Workloads

Hitachi Data Systems better known as HDS launches new software-defined infrastructures that are claimed to enable customers to simplify IT and free data from traditional hardware and location constraints, making 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 virtualized, 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 announced today new solutions and services to make society safer, smarter and healthier.

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 Virtualization Operating System (SVOS) to an expanded Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) family

Expanding the Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) family to cover core to edge or small to large converged and hyper-converged infrastructure models

Introducing the Hitachi Hyper Scale-Out Platform (HSP) for fast-growing data analytics workloads

Bringing to market new software to automate the provisioning and protection of application environments

For example in the storage category the company adds the G200, G400, G600 and the upcoming G800 to its VSP family. Extending the reach of powerful software capabilities that are built into Hitachi SVOS allows the entire VSP family to offer native heterogeneous storage virtualization and multi-site active-active storage – as well as fully compatible data migration, replication and management. Customers now have the ability to choose systems based on the necessary capacity, performance and price required to meet their business goals, not because of functional difference.

The Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) portfolio has been expanded with new hyper-converged and converged infrastructure models that now cover customers’ needs to rapidly and more easily support core to edge IT workloads. The latest additions to the UCP family include the hyper-converged Hitachi UCP 1000 for VMware EVO:RAIL, and the converged Hitachi UCP 2000, both use new rack servers and target small to medium or remote or branch office environments. The Hitachi UCP 6000 converged model integrates the recently launched Hitachi CB 2500 blade servers, and delivers unmatched price-performance for mission critical workloads. The UCP family, with industry leading Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Director infrastructure automation software, allows customers to drive operational efficiencies through rapid deployment and provisioning of infrastructure for managing an agile data center, prepared to change workloads to match business needs.

The hyper-converged architecture of the new Hitachi Hyper Scale-Out Platform (HSP) provides cost-effective compute performance and on-demand capacity. Capable of ingesting massive amounts of mixed data types across a distributed, clustered architecture, the simple, automated management of HSP allows elastic data growth by using Hitachi file system technology with open source management and virtualization software. HSP is the ideal scale-out platform for Hadoop environments, allowing users to analyze data in place and eliminate the need to move large data sets to perform analytics functions for big data.

Hitachi Data Systems is also introducing and enhancing a wide range of software tools that will help users build the ITaaS infrastructure.

“The fundamentals of IT are changing. Whether it is the adoption of ‘third platform’ technologies and striking the proper balance among the different modes of IT, or the ongoing move to providing IT as a service, there is real change taking place, all while our customers are trying to move to ITaaS,” said Sean Moser, Senior Vice President global portfolio and product management, Hitachi Data Systems. “Customers are looking for ways to be more agile and flexible to gain a competitive advantage. Hitachi is delivering a new generation of software-defined technologies built to support the changing needs of customer application environments to deliver on those goals and connect what works today with what’s next.”
