Hitachi Vantara Introduces “Smart” Data Center Vision  

Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., announced its vision for its Smart Data Center, which brings together technologies and approaches in infrastructure management, predictive analytics and internet of things (IoT) capabilities.

This Smart Data Center approach makes IT more agile by centralizing control and automating processes that span systems, data centers and clouds, the vendor claimed. This differs from traditional IT administration by automating decision-making, insight and guidance through predictive analytics, IoT and prescriptive intelligence. These advanced capabilities centralize the management of IT infrastructure for simple tasks, such as provisioning as well as more complex operations such as optimization and self-healing across data centers.

A fully managed Smart Data Center solution is now available through Hitachi Vantara’s early customer adoption program. The solution is a fully managed offering that applies advanced analytics and integrated orchestration, on- or off-premises, to information collected from a customer’s data center. Customers are then provided with the information, insight and guidance needed to manage their heterogeneous infrastructure environments with predictable operational outcomes at lower cost. The Smart Data Center solution provides service health and alerting, automation of common infrastructure operations, performance management, asset management, capacity management, and availability and data protection.
