Total Economic Impact of Hitachi HCI Appliance


Hyperconverged infrastructure continues to expand use cases that range from business-critical applications to hybrid multi-cloud solutions. Developed in collaboration with VMware, Hitachi Unified Compute Platform HC (UCP HC) powered by VMware vSAN has helped global customers accelerate time to value, simplify management, and reduce TCO.


Forrester Consulting conducted a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying the Hitachi UCP HC solution.


Forrester analyzed a real-world customer, a global retailer, who has deployed UCP HC solutions to support business growth, reduce failure incidents, and easier management. Retailer refreshed the technology infrastructure by replacing eight servers and SAN systems with sixteen UCP HC nodes to deliver the scale for today and tomorrow.




Please join the webinar on Aug 15th to hear from a panel of industry experts from VMware, Forrester, and Hitachi, the benefits, costs, and risks associated with the Hitachi HCI solution, and how the global retailer gained massive economic and business benefits from deploying Hitachi HCI


Forrester Economic Impact™ (TEI) study found the economic value for modernizing cloud infrastructure as shared below:


§  Avoided $1.4 million in legacy infrastructure costs annually

§  Increased annual revenue by 1% from faster time to market and user efficiencies.

§  Reduced 75% of production downtime and incident support costs.


A few benefits that could not be quantified in the study are below:


§  Ease of management for integration into hybrid environment

§  Increased business agility and ability to expand operations


The global director of IT with the customer stated “A lot of our on-premise applications are critical to our business. Hitachi’s hyperconverged environment gives us the ability to get increased performance, flexibility, and scalability which we would not have with [our prior solution].”
