Hitachi Vantara has announced major updates to its portfolio of products, solutions, and services to deliver a foundation for DataOps initiatives, a methodology to improve an organization’s use of data through better data quality and data management, and shorter cycle times.
According to the company, DataOps enables enterprise data management for the AI era, connecting data consumers with data creators to find and use all the value in an organization’s data.
The updates and enhancements include the following:
Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) 5000 series and Hitachi Ops Center software form the company’s storage and infrastructure foundation with a new scale-out, scale-up architecture for any workload at any scale. These technologies can accelerate data center workloads and deliver future-proof IT with a new, innovative architecture that is the ideal foundation for modernizing data center, cloud and DataOps environments. The platform also features an NVMe flash array.
Hitachi Vantara has expanded and enhanced its capabilities for cloud services in the first major announcement of the company’s newly formed cloud services portfolio. The portfolio includes cloud migration services, application modernization services, operations managed services, consulting services and Hitachi Enterprise Cloud (HEC). The portfolio leverages critical capabilities and industry-leading expertise from the company’s acquisition of REAN Cloud in 2018.
The company also announced the expansion of the Lumada platform services and solutions portfolio to help customers across industries break down data silos and drive more innovation through DataOps. Hitachi is now extending Lumada’s capabilities beyond the internet of things (IoT) for enterprise and industrial customers to address the data challenges common to customers in any industry and for any use case.
