Digital enterprises are constantly seeking innovative solutions to manage their data efficiently and securely. A robust, versatile storage solution is crucial as it forms the backbone of any organization's data strategy. At Hitachi Vantara, our recent release of Virtual Storage Platform One (VSP One) marks a significant milestone in storage technology. And for digital business overall.

This new platform has already garnered positive feedback from organizations worldwide, including Türk Telekom, a leading Turkish multiplay provider of mobile, internet, phone and TV products and services.  With a vision of accelerating Turkey’s transformation into an information-driven society, they serve over 26.2M mobile, 17.4M access line, 15.2M broadband and 3.1M TV subscribers.

Speaking about Virtual Storage Platform One, Fatih Bekin, Data Center and Cloud Services Director at Türk Telekom states, "This next-generation platform epitomizes our commitment to innovation, boasting a unified data fabric, control plane and data plane that seamlessly extend across complex environments."

Traditionally, organizations have juggled multiple storage solutions to address different types of enterprise data requirements and challenges. This fragmented approach often leads to inefficiencies, increased costs and complex management overheads and architectures. Virtual Storage Platform One consolidates these disparate systems into a single, cohesive platform, simplifying storage management and enhancing operational efficiency.

For innovative companies like Türk Telekom, the potential is significant.

“With Virtual Storage Platform One, our internal customers gain access to a singular solution capable of tackling any storage challenge they encounter," Bekin says.

The concept of a unified data fabric means that Virtual Storage Platform One provides a consistent and integrated framework for managing data across various environments – on-premises, in the cloud or at the edge. This approach ensures data is easily accessible and manageable, regardless of where it resides, breaking down the silos that traditionally exist between different storage systems. A unified control plane is responsible for managing, orchestrating and overseeing the storage infrastructure. And a unified data plane streamlines the actual flow of data, ensuring it can move seamlessly and efficiently across different environments.

What sets VSP One apart is not just its technical capabilities but also its strategic vision. According to Bekin, "It's not just about providing technology; it's about allowing our customers to thrive in an ever-evolving digital landscape." This underscores the importance of partnership. Empowering the organization to harness the full potential of their data enables Türk Telekom to focus on innovation and growth rather than being bogged down managing traditional storage challenges.
