With organizations struggling to scale data and modernize applications across complex, distributed, multi-cloud infrastructure, the need for a comprehensive data management solution across all data types has never been more critical. Results from a recent TDWI Data Management Maturity Assessment (DMMA) found while 71% of IT experts agreed that their organization values data, only 19% said a strong data management strategy was in place. Complicating matters are rising cyberattacks, which leave business leaders increasingly worried about security and resiliency. A recent survey showed 68% of IT leaders are concerned their organization’s data infrastructure is resilient enough.

Virtual Storage Platform One products available now include:

  • Virtual Storage Platform One SDS Block
  • Virtual Storage Platform One SDS Cloud
  • Virtual Storage Platform One File

Virtual Storage Platform One simplifies infrastructure for mission critical applications, with a focus on data availability and strong data resiliency and reliability measures, including mitigation of risks such as downtime, productivity losses, and security threats.

“Virtual Storage Platform One is transformational in the storage landscape because it unifies data and provides flexibility regardless of whether your data is in an on-premises, cloud, or software-defined environment,” said Octavian Tanase, chief product officer, Hitachi Vantara. "Additionally, the platform is built with resiliency in mind, guaranteeing 100% data availability, modern storage assurance, and effective capacity across all its solutions, providing organizations with simplicity at scale and an unbreakable data foundation for hybrid cloud.”

Virtual Storage Platform One tackles the challenges of modern data management by eliminating the constraints of data silos and allowing every piece of information to work cohesively and with the flexibility to scale up or down with ease, empowering data to thrive in an environment that prioritizes efficiency and speed. Additionally, Virtual Storage Platform One SDS Cloud is available in AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This offers businesses seamless integration and accessibility to leverage Hitachi Vantara's cutting-edge data management solutions within AWS.

A New Era of Data Management

At the heart of Virtual Storage Platform One lies a unified data ecosystem that seamlessly integrates block and file storage, eliminating data silos and fragmented landscapes. Powered by Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System (SVOS), Virtual Storage Platform One ensures every piece of information is collected, integrated, and accessible from any device or location, making it easier to access, view, and fuel their business.

“For more than a decade, we've forged a partnership with Hitachi Vantara, finding great satisfaction in their services, expertise, and product durability,” Deniz Armen Aydın, cloud data storage technologies manager, Garanti BBVA. “The introduction of Virtual Storage Platform One promises to revolutionize data management and efficiency within the GarantiBBVA, igniting anticipation for the cutting-edge automation and resiliency features it offers.”

The hybrid cloud platform sets itself apart from competitors with key differentiators that redefine the data management landscape:

  • One Data Plane: Extending our storage portfolio into the public cloud with Virtual Storage Platform One SDS Cloud running natively on AWS.
