Hitachi Vantara has announced the expansion of its E Series line of high-performance NVMe all-flash arrays, additions to the HNAS family of NAS solutions, and introduced the Hitachi Virtual Storage as a Service aimed at midsized enterprises. The company also unveiled new initiatives designed to enable channel partners to help midsized enterprise customers accelerate into a new era of digital business platforms and ecosystems.
With data volumes growing nearly twice as fast as IT budgets, a critical pain point is storing and making that data accessible for customers and their applications. With fewer IT staff and resources, midsize customers are eager for reliable solutions that can reduce their storage costs and drive efficiencies. Hitachi Vantara’s solutions address the most important needs of midmarket buyers, providing outstanding value and pricing for customers and partners.
“Just like any large enterprise, a company of our size needs a solid infrastructure that is able to deal with mushrooming data demands,” said Robert Koppelstetter from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Hospital of Munich in Germany. “Hitachi Vantara’s move into our segment means we don’t have to compromise on reliability or performance while building out our state-of-the-art digital infrastructure to drive existing and new business opportunities for our organization.”
“Hitachi Vantara and our partners are excited to extend these powerful new enterprise-class offerings to midsized organizations to empower them to accelerate their transformation and achieve their business objectives – all at an attractive price point,” said Kimberly King, global vice president, Strategic Partners and Alliances at Hitachi Vantara.
