Networking major Hitachi says there are several reasons why enterprise CIOs should select Hitachi Unified Compute platform that now ranks first for the 2 billion initial record load according to the latest SAP Business Warehouse Advance Mixed Load Benchmark (BW-AML Benchmark) testing.
Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP), Hitachi’s converged platform, provides the best available technology to meet the performance demands of the most data intensive SAP HANA environments to SAP HANA customers.
The growing integration of sensors into service devices such as pacemakers and daily necessities such as cars and trains demand converged platforms to deliver better result. CIOs demand better technology to intelligently parse through the data created and extract actionable information in a timely manner.
CIOs can bet on SAP HANA technology to act on this data to meet the performance demands with the best availability and highest reliability available on the market.
“The SAP BW-AML benchmark results demonstrate our continued partnership and commitment to provide our customers with the highest value for their businesses. SAP and Hitachi are helping customers make their digital transformation journey a reality,” said Parisa Fathi, SAP Global Solutions Manager at Hitachi Data Systems.
Research and analyst firm IDC said that the worldwide hyper-converged systems market is expected to grow at a nearly 60 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2019, reaching more than $3.9 billion in sales.
Dell in April 2016 announced expansions of its hyper-converged infrastructure portfolio to help CIOs to accelerate and simplify IT deployment and management to meet their goals. New additions from Dell include VCE VxRail appliances, VxRack systems and VMware Virtual SAN Ready Nodes and next generation Dell XC Series hyper-converged appliances.
“We are seeing customers wanting a variety of entry points for hyper-converged infrastructure. Dell was early in this market, has strong growth, and has the right vision and broad approach for how this category of infrastructure continues to transform,” said Matt Eastwood, senior vice president of IDC’s Enterprise Infrastructure and Datacenter Group.
