The mid-sized enterprise is the fastest-growing market opportunity for data storage. But not just any storage system will do. These days, mid-sized enterprises must handle the complexities of unremitting data growth and distributed infrastructure, meet sustainability goals, manage the diverse storage needs of mission-critical applications, and respond to user requirements. Oh, and they need uninterrupted access to their data no matter what.

If those sound like challenges for giant enterprises, you’re not wrong. Mid-sized enterprises need to solve the same issues as their bigger siblings but with even greater stakes if they choose the wrong data infrastructure.

So, let’s not let them do that.

Hitachi Vantara is excited to announce a powerful and versatile storage solution designed specifically for the needs of mid-sized enterprises. Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform One Block (VSP One Block) is not only efficient and reliable, but also sustainable and secure. The VSP One Block platform is a combination of innovative features and a commitment to environmental responsibility.

Why Hitachi VSP One Block for Mid-sized Enterprises?
