Today the Business Intelligence Group announced the winners of the 2018 Stratus Award for Cloud Computing, and we are happy to share that the Hitachi Content Platform portfolio was named a Private Cloud Provider winner. In a crowded landscape we are proud to have been one of the few “differentiated” vendors with a solution recognized for “changing the way we all interact with organizations and each other”.
For all of the disruption around cloud, it has not been a “one size fits all” solution. It is not for everyone one, and more importantly, it is not for all data or workloads. In exchange of “cheaper storage”, organizations have had to sacrifice governance and control over their data. And should you need that data back, be prepared to pay. Need additional security measures to keep data safe? Be prepared to pay more. In fact, there’s been a quiet, but steady movement of companies who, after going all in on public cloud, decide to come back in-house (more on that here). Customers are taking a more critical look at which data and workloads are best suited for cloud environments. And for those customers who decide that a private cloud is the best solution - we can help.
The best part? A private cloud solution with Hitachi is possible at cost that is comparable, and in some cases even superior to leading public cloud service providers. In fact, customers can deploy a on premise cloud and achieve 61% TCO savings compared to leading public cloud solutions (that report here: ESG Lab Validation: Hitachi Content Platform Portfolio | Hitachi Vantara).
