Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, has introduced new Data Protection-as-a-Service from Hitachi Vantara (DPaaS) and expanded capabilities for Storage-as-a-Service from Hitachi Vantara (STaaS). These services directly deliver the intended business outcomes from storage and data protection that enterprises need. The as-a-service offerings are pre-engineered and delivered as fully managed services to provide rapid deployment, transparent consumption-based pricing and guaranteed service levels.
“Hitachi Vantara’s Storage-as-a-Service and Data Protection-as-a-Service offerings are designed for customers to quickly realize the benefits of a cloudlike experience and free their people to work on more strategic projects. With additional capacity and data protection available on demand, Storage-as-a-Service and Data Protection-as-a-Service from Hitachi let customers adapt and grow more quickly and stay competitive as well as reduce their overall costs by only paying for the actual storage or data protection that they need when they need it,” said Ashish Nadkarni, vice president of IDC’s infrastructure systems, platforms and technologies group.
These solutions provide flexible “pay-as-you-go” pricing and transparency via a rate card. Customers can use advanced analytics to make informed operational decisions to improve efficiencies and reduce the financial waste of paying for unused capacity. Hitachi Vantara’s “always on” services team manages each customer’s infrastructure and service catalog. The service level catalog provides a range of choice for performance, data availability, retention, remote replication, and RTO/RPO. Hitachi will deliver these solutions directly as well as through our global systems integrators (GSI) and cloud service provider (CSP) partners as part of their value-added solutions.
“Today’s dynamic IT environments require nimble resource allocation strategies. Our new storage and data protection-as-a-service offerings deliver customers more choice and flexibility, providing the keys to higher scalability, enhanced security, and greater resilience,” said Bobby Soni, chief solutions and services officer at Hitachi Vantara.
