Hitachi Data Systems Delivers Cloud-Like Economics, Simplified Management With New Hyper-Converged Appliance, and Integrated Data Protection
Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., today announced new hyper-converged infrastructure solutions and software enhancements for VMware environments. 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.

The newly available 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. 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.

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.

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.

Hitachi Data Systems is also now offering stretched storage cluster capabilities on VSP systems using global-active device technology in conjunction with VMware vCenter™ Site Recovery Manager™, allowing customers nondisruptive application mobility and improved recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) in the event of disaster. Hitachi Data Systems provides highly available, active-active clusters with automated recovery for Tier 1 business applications.
