Hitachi Data Systems unveils new solutions for cloud environments


Hitachi Data Systems announced new converged and hyperconverged solutions for virtualization and cloud environments.

The new offerings are Hitachi Unified Compute Platform 2000 (UCP 2000) converged system and UCP HC V240.

The second product is the first member of the new Hitachi Unified Compute Platform HC (UCP HC) line of hyper-converged solutions.

“We are seeing increasing demand to provide integrated systems that are reliable, trusted, and certified cost-optimal, from core to edge across the enterprise,” said Thomas Trela, senior director, solutions and cloud, Hitachi Data Systems.

“UCP HC V240 and UCP 2000 systems provide architectural options that can scale compute and storage resources while still offering simplified management for virtualization specialists.”
In a press statement, the company said both systems are flexible, agile and scalable for enterprises on their digital transformation journey.

Built on proven Hitachi technology, these solutions reduce cost and risk to data availability while alleviating complexity and accelerating time to value.

As digital transformation puts data at the center of business strategy, converged infrastructures become a more critical element of corporate success.

They provide the fastest way to deploy infrastructure that supports virtualized environments, giving IT leaders the flexibility to manage costs, enhance service delivery, meet evolving business expectations and increase revenue.

The Hitachi UCP family of converged and hyperconverged infrastructure solutions span from the core of the data center to the edge of the network to meet any enterprise IT requirement.

The new Hitachi UCP 2000 simplifies and expedites deployment of private and hybrid clouds through the delivery of a pre-tested, pre-built converged infrastructure platform.
