Announcing Participation in the Microsoft Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track Partner Program
by Miki Sandorfi on Nov 8, 2010
Converged infrastructure solutions are critical to organizations as they move to “operationalize IT” in order to increase agility, IT efficiencies and business alignment. And for those serious about the private cloud, it’s one of the most important trends we’ve seen to enable adoption. Today, Microsoft announced another step in making deployments easier with Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track, which provides the building blocks for private clouds that are fast to deploy with less risk. Hitachi Ltd and Hitachi Data Systems have also announced participation in the Microsoft partner program and will provide solutions for the creation of private clouds with simplified deployment and optimized infrastructures.
These solutions represent another execution point of our cloud strategy, announced in 2009 when we articulated our future plans for more integrated offerings that expand further into the solution stack. The Hitachi solutions built on Microsoft Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track will combine Hitachi storage and compute with network technologies so that businesses can quickly and reliably build private cloud infrastructures tuned for Microsoft Windows Servers 2008 R2 with Hyper-V and System Center
Our long-standing partnership with Microsoft has produced several industry-leading solutions that help customers realize the full benefits of their Hitachi Data Systems and Microsoft investment.
Now, our customers can:
- Simplify deployment and optimize private cloud infrastructures with reduced risk;
- Quickly build a private cloud to increase business agility, maximize efficiency, and optimize control over shared capabilities, data and costs;
- Have reliable, scalable, multitenant and multitiered cloud infrastructures;
- Create an avenue for further automation and orchestration and;
- Greatly reduce time-to-value for virtualization infrastructure investments.
