Being There – For You and Your Data

When your well-planned digital transformation turns into an urgent “digital pivot” overnight thanks to a pandemic, your data needs to keep up. We agree with Deloitte that the digital pivot can actually be the secret to your successful digital transformation. But, only if your data can be there with you at every turn. We can help with that. In fact, we guarantee it.

Businesses that apply data to deliver products and services anywhere, anytime are today’s winners. Your customers and partners must be able to count on you just as your people must count on your data. They may not know what market changes are coming next, but they do know that your data-driven products and services will continue to flow.

100% Data Availability, Guaranteed

Hitachi Vantara realized 20 years ago the importance of your data being there for you when we pioneered our unheard-of promise that still stands today:

“Our 100% Data Availability Guarantee for Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) family of storage systems ensures that your company meets its information availability requirements. If there is a loss of availability of data caused by a malfunction of the storage system that makes it unable to read or write data, we will credit your company for replacement equipment.”

Decades of Trust Earned

We’re delighted to celebrate this 20-year anniversary of standing behind you with the industry’s most available and most trusted storage systems. And we’re thrilled, though not surprised, that 87% of the world’s Fortune 100 financial institutions rely on Hitachi Vantara storage to deliver uninterrupted services to tens of millions of customers. But any business can be there with a Hitachi Vantara storage solution regardless of its size as our 100% Data Availability Guarantee supports all VSP storage systems from entry-level to enterprise. But don’t listen to me. Listen to your peers:

“I have been a Hitachi storage solutions customer for 15 years – their platform has been a game changer for me and my organization…”
— Scott Crowder, Senior Vice President and CIO, BMC Software

“The architecture proposed by Hitachi Vantara and deployed by BRB has set the benchmark in the Brazilian IT market due to its reliability and the peace of mind it provides in terms of availability and performance for the computing environment.”
— Braulio Lourenço da Silva Junior, Infrastructure and Storage Platform Manager, Banco de Brasília (BRB)

“Hitachi VSP high performance systems allow us to be in the forefront of technology.”
— Magen Margalit, Head of Core Infrastructure, Bank Hapoalim

Years and Years of Innovation for Your Data, Delivered

Our breakout guarantee is not all we do. We repeatedly break through with system improvements, too. Take the innovative VSP 5000 series, the only storage system that delivers eight-9s of availability. Compared to others’ six-9s systems, we give you 31 seconds per year less unplanned downtime! That can mean a doctor saving a life or your quarter-end closing successfully, or any of a thousand things that depend on critical data.

Data availability should be a key strategy that is monolithic, regardless of economic climate or even a pandemic. We want to be there for you by making sure your data is there, too. And we will be – guaranteed.
