Hitachi Agile Simplifies Cloud Adoption

by CXOtoday Staff    Oct 20, 2009

Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) recently introduced a portfolio of cloud technologies for enterprise cloud computing environments. The new technologies, called ‘agile’, are aimed at accelerating and simplifying adoption of enterprise cloud computing.

The ‘agile’ portfolio delivers an integrated set of computing resources to create a single pool of virtualized block, file and content storage to support diverse uses in cloud computing. According to HDS, this will allow organizations to adopt cloud services at their own pace.

Current cloud methodologies, the company stated, are not in tune with the ‘realities’ organisations face today. The methods create poorly utilised data silos — something that organizations try to avoid through their cloud computing efforts. HDS’s approach, on the other hand, delivers a dynamic cloud environment that virtualizes all existing storage resources into a single, agile service oriented infrastructure. Such an approach reduces storage costs, risk, and can be managed through changing demands as well.
