Hitachi Deploys F5 ARX File Virtualisation Solution

Hitachi Information Systems has selected an F5 ARX file virtualisation solution to achieve reduction in its overall storage costs. By introducing ARX, Hitachi reduced the amount of new storage capacity required to meet their growth needs, lowering capital expenses from approximately 8.4 million yen to 2.5 million yen — a saving of roughly 70 per cent.

Hitachi now leverages ARX's automated storage tiering capabilities to improve the utilisation of its existing storage resources.

"ARX has significantly alleviated our data storage concerns, and we have achieved substantial cost savings through file virtualisation," said Akito Shimizu, outsourcing services engineering department, engineer, Hitachi Information Systems. "ARX provides us with the flexibility to build out our infrastructure without being tied to a single storage vendor. As a result, we have been able to optimise our storage environment and dramatically reduce the expense of managing data growth as well."
