Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), today introduced Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) E990, the company’s new storage platform for midsize enterprise customers.
The E990’s high performance and low latency supercharge business applications, and industry-leading data de-duplication guarantees storage cost reductions. Hitachi Ops Center’s powerful artificial intelligence (AI)-driven management software can also dramatically simplify storage provisioning for AI, machine learning (ML) and containerized applications. The E990 with Hitachi Ops Center provides an NVMe all-flash option for Hitachi Vantara’s family of solutions for midsize enterprises, adding to a broad portfolio of powerful infrastructure solutions that feature best-in-class performance and include Hitachi’s signature 100% data availability guarantee for businesses of all sizes.
“With its Virtual Storage Platform E990 system, Hitachi is upping the ante in midrange storage. The VSP E990 is an all-NVMe system that is both storage-class memory (SCM) and NVMe-over-fabric (NVMEoF) ready, can scale to nearly 6 million IOPS and well over 16 petabytes of effective capacity, provides a ‘no questions asked’ 4:1 data reduction guarantee based on just compression and deduplication, and is backed by Hitachi’s 100-percent data availability guarantee,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Enterprise Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies, IDC. “Midrange enterprises that need room to grow for their mission-critical workloads should look at the compelling value proposition offered by the Hitachi VSP E990.”
With the vast spread of COVID-19 pandemic worldwide, numerous countries, including the Philippines, have regulated counter measures to manage the situation. Public and private sectors have rolled out work-from-home operations to ensure and protect the health and safety of their employees. However, medium and large enterprises then are challenged to secure their own company’s data while remote working.
Business continuity for medium and large enterprises, in times like these is only efficient if companies are willing to also invest in their cloud and storage infrastructure.
The company also unveiled EverFlex from Hitachi Vantara, a program that provides simple, elastic and comprehensive acquisition choices for the E990 and the entire Hitachi Vantara portfolio. EverFlex adds consumption-based pricing models that range from basic utility pricing, to custom outcome-based services, to Storage as a Service. It will align IT spend with business use for midsize enterprises, enabling effective ways to lower cost, avoid wasting capacity and eliminate disruption.
The VSP E990 is ideal for partners to deliver innovation and benefits important to midsize enterprise customers. Hitachi Vantara continues to invest in its predictable, profitable and pioneering partner program with enablement tools, marketing resources and incentives designed for distributors and resellers focused on midsize enterprises.
Hitachi VSP E990, Hitachi Ops Center and EverFlex are available globally from Hitachi Vantara and its network of partners.
