Hitachi Vantara Named a Leader in IDC MarketScape on Object Storage for the Third Consecutive Time

Press Releases   •   Jul 03, 2018 11:16 +08

Singapore – Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), today announced it has been placed in the Leaders category of the International Data Corporation (IDC) MarketScape: Worldwide Object-based Storage 2018 Vendor Assessment (DOC # US42665518, June 2018) based on its Hitachi Content Platform solution.

In developing the MarketScape research, IDC analysts evaluated 13 of the most notable object-based storage vendors based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that gauge the success of a supplier in delivering an object-based storage solution in the market.

According to the IDC MarketScape report, “Hitachi Vantara's biggest strength lies in the company's vision to remain aligned to market needs through its tightly integrated product portfolio and ecosystem of technology and channel partners. The company remains committed to the HCP portfolio with an aim to double down on the content business through financial funding and hiring skilled engineering and sales staff. Hitachi Vantara has made strides in aligning its HCP portfolio to address new workloads such as data analytics on structured and unstructured data and media streaming across verticals.”

The report states, “The HCP portfolio offering gives users the ability and ecosystem to manage content-centric applications and next generation workloads,” driving the company goal of “enabling customers to own and control their data across storage platforms and public clouds, with granular management capabilities in a portfolio of competitive products.”

“Hitachi Vantara’s HCP portfolio is in a strong position in the object-based storage market,” said Amita Potnis, research manager, file and object-based storage systems at IDC. “With a wide range of technology partners supporting traditional and next generation use cases around big data analytics, internet of things (IoT), and enterprise file sync and share, Hitachi Content Portfolio (HCP) has supported many must-have features that are crucial for meeting customer needs. HCP continues to address new workloads with its sustainable and growing portfolio, proving they are a leader in this space.”

The Hitachi Content Platform portfolio supports advanced data protection techniques such as erasure coding, replication and all RAID levels to support both performance and dense capacity-driven workloads, as well as replicating before tiering. Hitachi Vantara supports high performance workloads on HCP by populating its performance nodes (G-nodes) entirely with solid state disks (SSDs), which has led to a successful experience for customers with high-performance object storage requirements.

As with the two preceding reports (IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Object-Based Storage Vendor Assessments for 2016 and 2014), the placement of Hitachi Vantara in the Leaders category underscores the success of a strong, sustainable and integrated portfolio, acting as an influential catalyst for digital transformation.

“Object storage solutions are in high demand because they leverage rich metadata services to tackle some of the biggest data management challenges facing enterprises today such as storage tiering, data protection, hybrid- and multicloud data management, and global information governance,” said John Magee, vice president of product and solutions marketing at Hitachi Vantara. “Being placed in the Leader category of IDC’s Object Storage MarketScape report for the third consecutive time is further validation that the Hitachi Content Platform continues to provide market-leading solutions that enable customers to modernize the way they store, protect, and access their data.”

According to Worldwide File- and Object-Based Storage Forecast, 2017–2021 (IDC #US42280717, September 2017), object-based storage capacity is expected to grow at a CAGR of 34.2% for 2017– 2021, reaching 333.1EB in 2021.

Hitachi Extends Cloud Managed Services Offerings With End-to-End Container Support and New Service Classes

Press Releases   •   Jun 21, 2018 11:44 +08

SINGAPORE – Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd. (TSE: 6501), today announced expansions to the Hitachi Enterprise Cloud family of fully managed private and hybrid cloud “as-a-service” offerings, including new options for deploying cloud-native application environments. These new as-a-service offerings accelerate data center modernization and help ensure customers realize the maximum value of Hitachi technology through outcome-based services.

Hitachi Enterprise Cloud Container Platform

Hitachi Enterprise Cloud (HEC) Container Platform is the first pre-engineered as-a-service offering to provide a public cloud experience for organizations that use data services, DevOps and microservices architectures on premises. The platform has added ability to deploy and orchestrate across public-cloud end points. The HEC portfolio now supports cloud-native applications and distributed data services with the HEC Container Platform as well as VMware virtualized applications and bare metal applications with the existing HEC with VMware vRealize. Both are delivered as fully managed, pay-per-use environments and their service catalogs can be consolidated as a single solution that provides both capabilities.

HEC Container Platform, now generally available, is a fully managed end-to-end solution based on the industry leading Mesosphere’s Datacenter Operating System (DC/OS) providing efficiency, support and control for deploying modern data services such as Spark, Kafka, Cassandra and HDFS. Kubernetes container orchestration is also included out of the box, alongside Docker and the native Marathon orchestrator, to provide the customer with their choice for single-click deployment of Marathon and Kubernetes. Through the partnership with Mesosphere, the HEC Container Platform supports more than one hundred DevOps and data services to accelerate the deployment of a ready-to-use cloud-native application environment.

“We are proud that Mesosphere DC/OS is such an integral part of the Hitachi Enterprise Cloud Container Platform offering,” said William Freiberg, chief operating officer, Mesosphere. “With the availability of the HEC Container Platform, our joint customers can implement a working cloud-native environment as a managed service that enables leading data services — with maximum agility and control.”

New HEC Family Service Classes

The Hitachi Enterprise Cloud family offers new service classes to define the units of on-demand consumption. The redefined virtual capacity units (VCU) of HEC with VMware vRealize provide more cost-effective utilization of on-demand resources and provide a new service class optimized for heavy compute workloads such as with SAP and Oracle. The newly defined container capacity units (CCU) of the HEC Container Platform provide highly efficient resource utilization, increased cost efficiency and pricing transparency.

The HEC family has also been enhanced with the ability to deploy HEC in multiple clouds and in multiple zones from a single pane of glass under one consolidated management structure. This new consolidated management significantly eases IT management burden and reduces costs and risks for hybrid cloud deployments.

Growing Marketing Adoption

Market acceptance of Hitachi Enterprise Cloud with VMware vRealize continues to grow across all geographies and all industries, especially highly regulated industries such as financial services and energy companies which require the greater data security and control provided by private and hybrid cloud solutions. Global system integrators have recognized the advantages of using HEC with VMware vRealize to speed solution delivery and to reduce the financial risk of business transformation engagements.

“We continue to make Hitachi Enterprise Cloud solutions more consumable and less rigid in how they are delivered to give our customers greater flexibility and control over their data,” said Bobby Soni, chief solutions and services officer at Hitachi Vantara.

“Our HEC Container Platform solution benefits a critical resource group in today’s modern enterprise, cloud-native App Developers and DevOps professionals, by giving them capability and automation that they have come to expect based on advances in services offered by public cloud Hyperscalers”.

Hitachi Vantara Strengthens UCP Family of Converged and Hyperconverged Systems and Applications Ecosystem Solutions

Press Releases   •   Jun 07, 2018 11:13 +08

SINGAPORE – Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd. (TSE: 6501), today announced powerful hardware and software enhancements across the Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) family of converged, hyperconverged and rack-scale systems, including NVMe SSD caching and GPU processor-based server options. New certified applications ecosystem solutions optimized for mission-critical environments include SAP HANA, Oracle databases, VMware and big data analytics frameworks. By offering a complete family of UCP converged systems and integrated application solutions, Hitachi Vantara is able to address any workload, at any scale, in multicloud environments.

Hitachi UCP systems provide customers with simplified, standard platforms that are fast to deploy and easy to manage, with less risk by minimizing human error. They enable the agile infrastructure needed to modernize data centers, allowing customers to rapidly respond to evolving business needs while efficiently managing, governing, mobilizing, protecting and analyzing data to gain richer insights and drive better business outcomes.

Enhanced Hitachi UCP Family Offerings

Hitachi UCP systems use modular building blocks of infrastructure that are pretested and validated to meet specific needs and fast-changing business requirements. They allow customers to start small and grow systems with increments of cost-effective compute, network and storage components to optimize performance.

Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Advisor (UCP Advisor), the IT management and orchestration software for the Hitachi UCP family, supports full automation over server, network and storage components. UCP Advisor with customized workflows lets IT staff move applications andworkloads between clouds and UCP systems in a smart and automated way to rapidly deliver new IT services. The latest release of UCP Advisor continues to enhance automation, including policy-based provisioning to speed initial deployment with less risk.

Built on a modular converged architecture, Hitachi Unified Compute Platform CI (UCP CI) systems provide a flexible, low-risk path to modern data center infrastructure. UCP CI systems with a management and automation toolset that uses UCP Advisor, enable the operational efficiencies of virtualization and increase the performance of mission-critical applications. The systems simplify the control of both virtual and physical infrastructure to support a wide range of enterprise and cloud workloads at any scale.

Enhancements to Hitachi UCP CI systems include support for the recently launched all-flash and hybrid Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) systems. Compared to prior models, the new VSP systems provide faster, more efficient performance, containers support and cross-platform AI analytics and IT automation software. New Intel Skylake-based Hitachi Advanced Server DS220 and DS240 servers deliver expanded scale-up and scale-out computational options to handle the most demanding, high performance requirements for virtualization, SAP and Oracle environments.

Hitachi Unified Compute Platform HC (UCP HC) systems are a scalable, easy-to-deploy hyperconverged infrastructure appliance. Available as an all-inclusive solution, UCP HC uses VMware vSAN™, the industry-leading software that powers hyperconverged infrastructure, for simplicity, agility and fully-orchestrated installation, management and upgrades.

The new Hitachi Advanced Server DS225 with NVIDIA Tesla GPU support addresses opportunities that require advanced graphics capabilities such as VDI, CAD/CAE and collaborative workplaces, along with advanced analytics solutions. New Intel Optane NVMe SSD caching in the DS120 server provides high performance and low latency transaction processing for critical applications and analytics environments. The higher capacity storage in the new DS220 server addresses use cases such as test and development, branch office support, content repositories and file services.

Hitachi Unified Compute Platform RS (UCP RS) is a rack-scale system designed to simplify the deployment of an agile data infrastructure at scale. When combined with VMware Cloud Foundation, the latest version of VMware’s integrated hybrid cloud platform, the integrated system enables customers to deploy a hybrid cloud with a fast time to market and pay-as-you-go economics. Key new components and enhancements to Hitachi UCP RS include the use of Intel Skylake all-flash servers for improved performance and efficiency, and support for VMware vSAN. This lowers the cost for smaller deployments, bringing a simple, secure and agile cloud infrastructure to a new class of customers.

“We are partnering with Hitachi Vantara to speed the adoption of hyper-converged infrastructure powered by VMware vSAN to larger enterprises”, said Lee Caswell, vice president of product, Storage and Availability Business Unit, VMware. “Hitachi Vantara offers unique integration with VMware solutions, including VMware vSAN and VMware Cloud Foundation, to deliver a digital foundation for traditional and cloud native applications as enterprises look for developer-ready infrastructure with a sleek new operations model.”

Expanded Applications Ecosystem Solutions

Applications ecosystem solutions, powered by the UCP family of systems, deliver pre-integrated, optimized and certified infrastructure solutions and reference architectures, combined with application-centric professional services.

The new Hitachi Solution for the SAP HANA Platform simplifies the analysis of SAP HANA data as well as big data from multiple sources in real time to drive faster and more informed business decisions. New SAP HANA solution options include tailored data center integration (TDI) certifications with leading density and efficiency, scaling to 64 nodes per frame and featuring new Hitachi VSP flash storage systems to run the most demanding SAP applications. New appliance certifications scale up to 8 CPUs and 12TB, and are ideally suited for SAP Business Suite 4 HANA (SAP S/4 HANA) to drive financials, enterprise resource planning, supply chain management and other mission-critical enterprise operations. In addition, Hitachi has added resource forecasting analytics and threshold alerts to Hitachi Server and Storage Adapters for the SAP HANA Cockpit centralized management console.

A Hitachi Solution for Databases with Oracle Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) optimization offloads warm and cold data to a data lake consisting of a certified MongoDB cluster running on Hitachi UCP RS systems. This can reduce the cost of software licensing, scale-out capability and hardware acquisitions while supporting analytics on Oracle EDW and MongoDB. Hitachi’s Pentaho Data Integration allows access to both existing EDW and secondary big data environments from a single tool.

Pretested, prevalidated infrastructure featuring certified Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub and MongoDB Enterprise compute clusters, complement Pentaho Data Integrationfor key use cases like cybersecurity. New reference architectures with certified infrastructure for Cloudera and MongoDB provide customers with tested systems, consistent expertise and best practices learned through years of experience in data management.

“It is critical that enterprise customers get the most value from all their data to grow their top line, connect their products and services, and protect their business.Together, Hitachi Vantara and Cloudera can help,” said Philippe Marinier, vice president, Business Development at Cloudera. “The new reference architecture from Hitachi Vantara with certified infrastructure on Cloudera's modern platform for machine learning and analytics optimized for the cloud can empower our joint customers to transform complex data into actionable insights to drive their digital transformation.”

“Hitachi UCP systems allow customers to respond quicker to business needs with a simplified, standard platform that is fast to deploy and easy to manage, with less risk,” said Bob Madaio, vice president, Infrastructure Solutions Marketing at Hitachi Vantara. “Together with enhanced, pretested application solutions, Hitachi’s converged infrastructure systems are helping customers ensure maximum ROI on the infrastructure running their most critical applications and analytics environments.”

The Hotelier’s Tech Stack Guide - Must-have Technologies That Impact The Guest Journey

Munich, 17 May 2018 - TrustYou, the world’s largest guest feedback platform, released their latest eBook: The Hotelier's Tech Stack Guide - Must-Have Technologies That Impact The Guest Journey. This eBook breaks down the technologies and software that modern hoteliers need to use to succeed in a digital age. It also emphasizes their impact over all phases of the guest journey, from the initial booking to post-stay ROI measurement.

The Hotelier’s Tech Stack Guide speaks to both independent and chain hoteliers and it provides them with insightful information about hotel technologies that determine the success of a guest experience, as well as a hotel’s overall operations, reputation, and revenue management. The eBook is divided into four chapters, the first three of them following the guest journey. Every chapter includes in-depth descriptions of must-have systems that impact each phase:

  • Pre-Stay: focuses on Internet Booking Engines, Reservation Systems, Channel Managers and Live Chat tools;
  • On-Site: includes information about Customer Relationship Management Systems, Property Management Systems, Direct Messaging, and Internet of Things;
  • Post-Stay: provides details on Guest Feedback Platforms and Revenue Management Systems;

The final chapter of the eBook tackles up-and-coming, innovative tech concepts such as Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality - technologies that are not yet widely used, but can positively impact the guest experience.

“It’s no secret that technology has made its way into hospitality, and successful businesses rely on a number of software and systems. However, it is not always clear which technology hotels have the greatest payoff. This is why we wanted to break down the most important and relevant technologies that hoteliers absolutely need in this tech-driven era, in order to ease operations, save valuable time and increase the number of bookings and the overall revenue. Having attributed each technology to a different stage of the guest journey should help shed some light on their necessity and impact.” said Valerie Castillo, TrustYou’s Vice President of Marketing.

The Hotelier's Tech Stack Guide - Must-Have Technologies That Impact The Guest Journey is available for free download here.

Press Releases   •   May 17, 2018 11:18 +08

SINGAPORE – One of the fastest growing telecommunications operators in the Asia Pacific region, MyRepublic, has selected Hitachi Vantara’s Pentaho Data Integration and Business Analytics platform to accelerate the company’s telecommunications technology strategy and enhance business operations in Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia.

With its uniquely scalable and centralized framework that allows seamless delivery of layered services, MyRepublic is driving digital transformation in the telecom industry. To expand further into the region and to launch mobile services on top of existing broadband services, MyRepublic uses the Pentaho platform to improveproductivity around data storage and operational efficiency, and to provide enterprise-grade scalability.

“The implementation of Hitachi Vantara’s Pentaho data integration and analytics has strengthened MyRepublic’s telcotech strategy across the region, which will help us to scale quickly and expand our offerings to other markets in the future. While we have made significant manpower savings, the bigger benefit is the robust data pipeline we’ve been able to build. Pentaho allows us to add data to this pipeline rapidly, which is important to this vision. Similar to what fintech players achieved with the financial services industry, it paves the way for us to create new data monetization models that will lead to further innovation in the industry,” said Eugene Yeo, group chief information officer, MyRepublic.

With the Pentaho platform, MyRepublic was able to integrate and blend data from disparate sources and then create the necessary dashboards with just two software engineers. The result was a 75% savings on human power.

One of the key tenets of MyRepublic’s telcotech vision is providing telecommunications operators with the ability to enter markets quickly and provide services rapidly. Integrating Pentaho’s open platform and using its extensive library of prebuilt components for data ingestion and processing help MyRepublic deliver on this promise.

Pentaho also allows MyRepublic to easily embed dashboards within its BOSS, CRM and back-office systems so that users can access insights while working within the operational systems. With increased resources, the company has been able to develop further enhancements, including a mobile app geared to their senior management for managing operational KPIs.

"MyRepublic is disrupting the traditional telco market with the introduction of telcotech, which uses data and new open-source technologies, analytics and machine learning to disrupt traditional industry models. They chose to use Hitachi Vantara’s Pentaho software because of its open platform and extensive data integration connectors, which meant that MyRepublic can build on top of a data-management platform and go to market faster," said Salmon Sim, regional vice president, big data and IOT analytics, Hitachi Vantara Asia Pacific.

Looking forward, MyRepublic plans to continue partnering with Hitachi Vantara to expand its use of Pentaho to drive more savings and new revenue streams. Planned launches of mobility services in various markets will see MyRepublic capture up to 100 times more data that can be monetized or used to drive new products and services.

Hitachi Data Instance Director v6.5 Delivers Non-Disruptive Data Governance Copy Services

Press Releases   •   May 17, 2018 11:00 +08

Singapore – Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), introduced today its latest specialized data recovery platform, Hitachi Data Instance Director (HDID) v6.5, which enables the long-term retention and reuse of managed copy data to support a wide range of secondary applications. HDID has already helped customers protect critical databases and applications using modern snapshot and replication technologies. This newest version helps organizations to reuse and monetize their unstructured backup data, with no impact to the primary production environment.

HDID provides modern data protection and recovery copy services that meet strict data-availability and service-level requirements. With this new release, HDID uses the integration of Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) as a storage repository for long-term file system backups. Backup data creates ever-increasing amounts of storage and recurring costs, though its value is realized only when data is recovered. HDID v6.5 provides recovery copy services using modern data protection technologies, agile copy services enabling the repurposing of the copied data, and governance copy services to manage long-term retention and support data discovery and analytics.

HDID v6.5 sends file system backups to HCP in a native file or object format. The backup data can then be used by Hitachi Content Intelligence and Hitachi’s Pentaho analytics software to provide compliance-related and search capabilities, data-driven insights and other new data management use cases.

“Traditionally, backup data sits dormant waiting for disaster to strike, taking up precious storage space,” said Peter Sjoberg, global business leader for data intelligence global field and industry solutions, Hitachi Vantara. “Increasingly, organizations are looking to unleash added value from their backup data, making it available for other uses, such as discovery and business analytics. At Hitachi Vantara, we’re delivering this ability through the integration of Hitachi Data Instance Director, Hitachi Content Platform and our broader data intelligence portfolio.”

This release addresses the needs of customers, data management professionals and backup administrators by letting organizations make greater use of their backup data to support a wide range of secondary operations, including data discovery, governance and compliance, analytics, DevOps and more.

Customers who are challenged by scalability, cost, reliability and performance of their current file system backup solutions should benefit in many ways by deploying HDID v6.5 with HCP, including the ability to:

  • Increase the value of their HCP investment and reduce the cost and management challenges they have with traditional methods of storing and managing backup data.
  • Gain access to a broader range of data, eliminate the complexity of auditing the many systems that are the subject of the audits, and eradicate performance and availability impacts on those production systems when performing audits.
  • Capture only incrementally changed files, reducing backup times and the required storage capacity.

HDID v6.5 provides the core capabilities and tools for customers to migrate away from traditional filesystem data backup methods and introduce new ways to use data, reducing cost in data management and increasing profitability.
