Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) has launched Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) RS series, a software-defined data center (SDDC) rack-scale platform in India.
Hitachi UCP RS — powered by VMware Cloud Foundation — enables customers to use hybrid cloud for faster time to market and pay-as-you-go economics.
Enterprise customers will have more freedom to optimize their IT investments by leveraging private and public cloud as an agile extension to their business.UCP RS provides flexibility to customers to either deploy integrated SDDC stack or build their own using Hitachi’s vSAN ready node and VMware software.
Hitachi has also enhanced its hyperconverged system Unified Compute Platform (UCP) HC featuring non-volatile memory (NVMe) and new sixth-generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors to deliver faster performance and reduced operating costs.
“This new Hitachi UCP RS solution improves productivity, delivers faster time to business value and accelerates the customer’s ability to realize the true power of their data,” said John Gilmartin, vice president and general manager, Integrated Systems, VMware.
Hitachi UCP RS also helps to minimize the complexity and guesswork of deploying and managing IT by automating provisioning, managing and monitoring for SDDCs.
Bob Madaio, vice president of Integrated Solution Marketing at Hitachi, said: “With the launch of UCP RS in addition to advancements in our hyperconverged UCP HC, Hitachi is empowering our customers to transform their IT environments, accelerate hybrid cloud deployments and further their digital business initiatives.”
