Hitachi defines vision for business IT at GITEX
Company lauds ‘Continuous Cloud Infrastructure’ as key to ICT efficiency
Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS) will be showing its vision of Business Defined IT at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK, which aims to closely link a company’s business and technology objectives with a more responsive IT foundation.
HDS says that this ‘Continuous Cloud Infrastructure’ can drive IT efficiency through a responsive, software-rich architecture that can quickly react to changing needs without continual redesign and disruption. A move toward Continuous Cloud Infrastructure ensures customers can build the most available, automated and agile environment for next-generation data centres.
“Our customers across industries have told us that to keep up with the frenetic pace of business they are aligning the IT and business functions more closely than ever,” said Aaron White, general manager Middle East, Africa, and Turkey, Hitachi Data Systems. “In order to execute in this business defined world, IT teams are looking to new infrastructure strategies to deploy more continuous, adaptable and scalable infrastructure. Businesses need solutions that don’t require constant and disruptive changes to the technology they support. And that is what we are delivering here in the region.”
Hitachi is highlighting its growing presence in the Middle East by exhibiting the Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System (SVOS); Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000; a new version of the Hitachi Command Suite management platform; and significant enhancements to its Hitachi Unified Compute Platform. Together, these technologies provide the foundation of an IT infrastructure that can adapt to changing business needs.
