Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., announced at NEXT 2017 the expansion of its Hitachi Enterprise Cloud portfolio to address DevOps and container use cases.
The Hitachi Enterprise Cloud with VMware vRealize Automation now provides expanded services offering for DevOps and Container Support for hybrid cloud deployments inclusive of cloud-native architectures. In addition, a new Hitachi Enterprise Cloud Container Platform provides hybrid cloud resources for DevOps that utilize microservices architecture with a turnkey, end-to-end container as a service environment.
“Without fail, customers are driven by their unique business objectives and pressures. Their journey to the cloud is no exception: Everyone is on their own path,” said Bobby Soni, chief solutions and services officer, Hitachi Vantara. “Our collaborations with industry leaders like VMware and Mesosphere enable us to create unique Hitachi Enterprise Cloud offerings to address the diversity of use cases in DevOps and containers.”
Hitachi Enterprise Cloud with VMware vRealize
With expanded support for DevOps and Containers, Hitachi Enterprise Cloud with VMware vRealize 7.3 automates the creation, deployment and management of container hosts and cloud-native applications as a service, across a multi-vendor, multi-cloud infrastructure.
Hitachi Enterprise Cloud Container Platform
Hitachi Enterprise Cloud Container Platform assists organizations in reducing their reliance on public cloud resources for their born-in-the-cloud applications. It provides hybrid cloud resources for DevOps that utilize microservices architecture with a turnkey, end-to-end container platform and a ready-to-use container-as-a-service environment. The architecture combines Hitachi infrastructure with Mesosphere DC/OS to provide PaaS element integration and user interface, container engine, scheduling, orchestration and workflow, with more than 50 preconfigured container applications, and options for persistent storage and private repository. The pre-engineered environment enables developers to focus on app development and provides operations with robust and industrialized service-level choices that the business demands once those applications reach production.
Hitachi Enterprise Cloud Family
All Hitachi Enterprise Cloud solutions provide a public cloud experience and ease of use with simple access to cloud services through a cloud service portal. Hybrid cloud features automatically deploy to either private or public clouds in line with an organization’s business or regulatory rules. Hitachi ensures capacity is available to meet peak demands on the private cloud.
Both of these new Hitachi Enterprise Cloud managed solutions are available through an early customer adoption program. This program is designed to provide an opportunity for initial customers to co-create the solution with our partners and us before the solution is standardized for general availability. Co-creation ensures that our service offerings have proven strategic relevance and greater value for our customers and enable us to develop differentiated solutions together with partners.
