Happy New Year From the New Hitachi Vantara

I refer to this as the new Hitachi Vantara since we have made some major new changes as we open the New Year 2020. Hitachi Vantara, has combined with Hitachi Consulting and reorganized to form two business units that are focused on Digital Infrastructure and Digital Solutions.


Hitachi Vantara was formed just over two years ago in September of 2017 to combine the operations of Hitachi Data Systems, with its advanced IT infrastructure and data management software; Hitachi Insight Group, with its IoT expertise and Lumada platform for IoT integration, and Hitachi Pentaho, with its data integration, low code online analytical processing and open source community.


In October 2018, Hitachi Vantara, acquired REAN Cloud, a global cloud systems integrator, and managed services provider who is a premier consulting partner in the AWS Partner Network and Microsoft Azure Silver partner. REAN Cloud was born in the cloud and is a solutions developer of cloud-native applications across big data, machine learning and emerging internet of things (IoT) spaces. REAN Cloud plays a key role in our Edge to Core to Multi-cloud strategy. Hitachi Vantara is also a strategic alliance partner with Google Cloud to advance digital solutions powered by IoT.


In 2019 we announced and delivered the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) 5000 series which was designed to eliminate the bottlenecks in the storage controllers which inhibit the full performance potential of NVMe and NVMe-oF in competitive storage arrays. As a result, the VSP 5000 out-performs every other storage array and is the only storage array that can extend its advanced functions to other storage arrays through its ability to connect and virtualize them. The VSP 5000 also comes with AI enabled software that can optimize SLA’s, simplify budget processing, and accelerate fault resolution.


Now with the integration of Hitachi Vantara and Hitachi Consulting we have a portfolio to open the new year built upon a foundation of world class edge to core to multi-cloud infrastructure offerings, with AI and analytic solutions, cloud services for application modernization, systems integration, and Lumada-based digital industrial solutions. Hitachi Vantara’s offerings are all backed by world class business consulting, deep experience in improving organization effectiveness, co-development capabilities, and global delivery services.


Supporting Hitachi Vantara in all this is Hitachi, Ltd., a Fortune 500 company with deep R&D resources, broad industrial expertise, and the intellectual and moral commitment of a 110 year old company that is committed to Social Innovation and powering good.
