Hitachi Vantara to offer data protection as-a-service

26 Apr 2019

Hitachi Vantara has introduced data protection and data storage offerings that embrace the as-a-service model and come as pre-engineered, fully managed services.

Data Protection as-a-Service from Hitachi Vantara, and extended capabilities for the company’s Storage-as-a-Service will allow customers to take advantage of data protection and their storage requirements.

The company explains that, “As more enterprises incorporate cloud technology in their IT environments, interest has grown for cloudlike approaches to the on-premise infrastructure. This helps enterprises achieve the scalability, security, flexible consumption and system management they need.” 

“Hitachi Vantara provides a fully managed public cloud experience as an alternative to conventional data protection and to storage leasing and purchasing.”

The solutions provide flexible ‘pay-as-you-go’ pricing and transparency via a rate card. Customers can use advanced analytics to make informed operational decisions to improve efficiencies and reduce the financial waste of paying for unused capacity. 

Hitachi Vantara’s ‘always on’ services team manages each customer’s infrastructure and service catalog. The service level catalog provides a range of choice for performance, data availability, retention, remote replication, and RTO/RPO. 

These solutions allow customers to keep security, compliance and data sovereignty under their control and ensure they are achieving the service levels needed for their businesses. Hitachi will deliver these solutions directly as well as through our global systems integrators (GSI) and cloud service provider (CSP) partners as part of their value-added solutions.

“Hitachi Vantara’s Storage-as-a-Service and Data Protection-as-a-Service offerings are designed for customers to quickly realise the benefits of a cloudlike experience and free their people to work on more strategic projects,” comments IDC infrastructure systems, platforms and technologies group vice president Ashish Nadkarni. 

“With additional capacity  and data protection available on demand, Storage-as-a-Service and Data Protection-as-a-Service from Hitachi let customers adapt and grow more quickly and stay competitive as well as reduce their overall costs by only paying for the actual storage or data protection that they need when they need it.”

The new Data Protection-as-a-Service from Hitachi Vantara includes:

•    Lower risk in deploying data protection in new environments
•    Guarantee of desired service-level outcomes from day one
•    Greater control and confidence in price and protection
•    Ability to protect data that resides on Hitachi as well as other vendors’ storage

Enhancements to Storage-as-a-Service from Hitachi Vantara include:
•    End-to-end support for all data types with object, block and file storage now available
•    Accelerated deployment time, and time to desired service level
•    Budget savings from reducing unused capacity
•    Assurance of achieving desired service levels
