Addressing the critical challenges facing IT leaders, many of whom are striving to scale data and modernize applications across complex, distributed hybrid and multicloud infrastructure, Hitachi Vantara, a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., has introduced Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform One, a single hybrid cloud data platform. Having a common data plane across structured and unstructured data in block, file, and object storage allows businesses to run different types of applications anywhere -- on premises and in the public cloud -- without the complexities many are faced with today.
The announcement of Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform One comes at a critical time for organizations as generative AI, cloud, and the explosive growth of enterprise data drive seismic shifts in operations and innovation. A recent report highlighted how data-intensive technologies and applications are exacerbating the already-strained infrastructure and hybrid cloud environments on which they run, with six in 10 business leaders already overwhelmed by the amount of data they store, and 75% concerned their current infrastructure will be unable to scale for the future. According to an Uptime Institute data resiliency survey, 80% of data center managers and operators have experienced some type of outage in the past three years.
Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform One represents a simplified approach to managing mission-critical workloads at scale, delivering a unified architecture to efficiently manage these challenges by providing one control plane, data fabric, and data plane across block, file, object, cloud, mainframe, and software-defined storage workloads -- a data platform that will address all environments -- and managed by a single AI-enabled software stack. By eliminating infrastructure, data, and application silos, Virtual Storage Platform One empowers businesses with a trusted data foundation that enables them to consume the data they need, when and where they need it.
With Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform One, organizations can efficiently manage their workloads and data resources, including:
- Cloud self-service that enables users to rapidly consume advanced data services such as replication at cloud scale, without waiting for back-end manual work.
- Intelligent workload management to optimize storage pools by assigning and rebalancing workloads as conditions change, without hands-on management.
- Integrated copy data management to ensure global availability and superior fault tolerance without impacting performance using industry-leading replication and synchronous active storage clusters.
