Our new approach to hybrid IT infrastructure management helps you transform IT operations by bringing a core understanding of the application and how those applications relate to the infrastructure supporting them.   Essentially managing the infrastructure from the data center and the cloud in the perspective or in the context of businesses mission-critical applications which facilitates the ability to innovate with data

So why should Hitachi customers care? It truly takes a village when deploying mission-critical infrastructure into an enterprise data center.  I thought it'd be helpful to start with a case study where Hitachi and Virtual Instruments have delivered significant value to one of our key strategic joint customers. A very large financial institution based in the UK has been a mutual customer for very long time and they've actually relied on a combination of Hitachi and Virtual Instruments to deliver performance availability and cost efficiency as they've continued to scale their environment.

The environment is massive with over 25,000+ switch ports for its 1200+ storage ports in a very heterogeneous compute environment from Linux and Windows to AIX.  27 petabytes of storage and growing all on VSPs from Hitachi and all instrumented and monitored with VirtualWisdom, our flagship product line.

Hitachi Vantara storage and VirtualWisdom, in concert, deliver superior infrastructure performance, agility and availability management capabilities to mission-critical IT enterprises. As a result of our combined approach, this customer has had no sev-one outages in many years.  The business impact for our mutual customer is profound.  The elimination of IT war room battles over application slowdowns and outage causality, caused by inefficient workload balancing and infrastructure optimization has been systematically eliminated. 

See how to take advantage of our App-centric monitoring and AIOps platform, utilizing powerful analytics and AI combined with visibility across the entire IT infrastructure stack, to predict and avoid issues, automate resolution, and ensure application SLAs. Great benefits for your business with offerings from Hitachi Vantara and Virtual Instruments foster your ability to receive return on data projects.

Virtual Instruments is a Silver sponsor at Hitachi NEXT 2019 in Las Vegas from October 8-10, 2019. We look forward to meeting you there!
