Award celebrates partnership success and recognizes HDS’ ability to deliver complete information management solutions

SINGAPORE — Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), has been recognized at the Veritas 2015 Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) Partner Awards as one of its top-performing partners and named the Global Strategic Partner of the Year – Asia Pacific.

The Veritas APJ Partner Awards honor top-performing partners who have demonstrated dedication to achieving strong business growth and have positively contributed to their customers, the partner community and Veritas.

HDS was selected based on a set of criteria that includes overall performance in revenue growth, program adoption, excellence in technical innovation and the strategic implementation of Veritas’ information management solutions to enable customers to gain control and insight of their valuable information.

HDS is a strong partner of Veritas, both in Asia Pacific and globally. Both companies have established a track record of working together to ensure customers can effectively manage, protect and govern their data across its entire lifecycle. With data doubling in size every two years and expected to reach 44 zettabytes by 2020*, enterprises need to adopt a robust information management strategy to address their data growth challenges. The partnership between HDS and Veritas allows users to gain full insight into their data and store it accordingly based on the industry requirements and regulations, delivering unified data management strategy while reducing data management costs and complexity.

Tim Durant, senior director, Global ISV Alliances, HDS comments, “The first 12 months of our work with Veritas was one of the most successful partnership launches we have had globally. The success of our partnership gives us a great foundation to expand the products and solutions we resell, and explore ways to collaborate on new initiatives around big data and Social Innovation.”

“At Veritas, we are focused on enabling our partners to capitalize on the strength of our leading information management solution portfolio to deliver value to our customers while achieving profitable growth. This award recognizes HDS’ commitment to scale with Veritas in leveraging joint assets in information availability and insight to not only help customers unlock the value of their data, but more importantly, harness the power of their information to achieve positive business outcomes,” said George Wong, APJ Channel Leader, Veritas.

Choo Siang Lee, director, APAC Partner and Alliances, HDS adds, “This award recognizes the impact partnerships between market leaders can have on customer outcomes. The combination of Veritas’ leading information management solutions and Hitachi Data Systems’ enterprise infrastructure offerings enables customers to have complete control over their data.”
