The third wave of digital disruption is upon us and it’s all about leveraging data to act as a catalyst for disruptive innovation. In a data-driven enterprise, data flows freely to where it is needed, unobstructed by silos or closed applications. Outdated or underpowered systems and infrastructure are holding enterprises back from reaching their potential with big data. Data about customers – databases, social media, purchase histories, interactions with support or services – is often spread across different silos and systems.  

Many companies are exploring a hybrid cloud model that combines the best of both public and private hosting strategies. But they struggle to master the significant technical challenges, including data security, user access, system bridges and interfaces, and regulatory compliance.

Two acknowledged technology leaders, Hitachi Vantara and VMware, are putting their long-standing relationship to work to help you address these challenges, simply and cost-effectively. Here are the 5 ways they can help:
  1. Leverage deep expertise spanning public and private cloud - By relying on the experience and resources of these two innovative leaders, companies can quickly and cost effectively launch their hybrid cloud and begin realizing the benefits
  2. Get the most out of your existing software investments -  Data-driven infrastructure from Hitachi enables companies to achieve the high degree of security, scalability and integration needed to link public and private clouds. Instead of reinventing the wheel, Hitachi helps organizations to get the most out of their investment in VMware solutions.
  3. Access a comprehensive set of software defined services - VMware helps organizations to compute, manage, store and network securely across private and public cloud environments. Whether data resides on premises or off premises, it is consistently available and securely protected, maximizing productivity and efficiency for those stakeholders who rely on this data.
  4. Gain a rapid return on investment - With decades of experience in IT infrastructure, data and cloud computing, Hitachi and VMware can help organizations to get their hybrid cloud initiatives up and running both quickly and affordably. By turning the many activities involved in a hybrid cloud launch over to these two industry leaders, businesses can realize a rapid return on investment, and free staff to focus on higher-priority strategic tasks.
  5. Scale as your needs grow - As capacity, consumption and other needs change, the hybrid cloud configuration and underlying IT architecture can easily be rescaled or reshaped to accommodate these changes.

Come see us at VMWorld in San Francisco, booth #1435. Here’s a preview of our hybrid cloud solution showcases:

Apps and Cloud migration will demonstrate how Hitachi enables you to migrate your applications from a Data Center to the Cloud as servers or as containers in a secure, easy, and automated way. It will show how Hitachi’s advanced tools automate provisioning and management of new and existing workloads or applications in the cloud.
Automated Hybrid Cloud solution will showcase our hybrid cloud capabilities
where we bring together VMware’s Enterprise-ready Hybrid Cloud Management
Platform (CMP) together with Hitachi’s Converged and Hyperconverged
Infrastructure and comprehensive tools to not only deliver enhanced private cloud
capability but also Day one and day two operations across private, public and
hybrid clouds using VMware and AWS technology.
