Hitachi Vantara unveils a wide range of data center products

Hitachi Vantara launched a wide range of new hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) systems, software management, and automation tools at its Hitachi Next 2018 conference taking place in San Diego.

The move is meant to be a convergence of products, just as Hitachi Ventara as a company is going through a convergence. The U.S. subsidiary of the Japanese tech giant was formed last year by combining three business units: Hitachi Data Systems, the systems and storage infrastructure business; the Hitachi Insight Group IoT business; and the Pentaho Big Data business.

With on-premises hardware falling out of favor to the cloud, Hitachi Vantara is trying to help customers that keep on-prem systems get the most out of their systems and bring as much of the cloud experience to the data center.

“People are trying to right-size apps they want to manage rather than what they want in the cloud,” said Bob Madaio, vice president of infrastructure solutions marketing at Hitachi Vantara. “We tend to support customers that will use the cloud to augment them, but most of the data and apps are on prem.”
