Hitachi Data Systems Now Supports Windows Server 2012
by Ralph Lobato on Sep 4, 2012
Today, Microsoft announced its first Windows Server Cloud OS release with the introduction of Windows Server 2012, and HDS is excited to be part of the next generation of Microsoft solutions this release enables. HDS has a reputation in the IT Industry for leadership in mission-critical architectures with enterprise service and support, and we’re extending our expertise to bring the best possible solutions to the Windows Server platform.
We’ve collaborated with Microsoft since early 2010 and have architected our products to be optimized for Windows Server 2012 features. We also believe that Windows Server 2012 sets the foundation for Hitachi solutions built on Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track architecture that combine Hitachi compute and storage with industry-standard network infrastructure and management with System Center 2012 SP1. This is compelling because Windows Server 2012 scales up to 64 nodes and can support thousands of virtual machines using Hitachi infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings. Customers trust HDS infrastructure because it’s designed for the most demanding environments, and we’re ready to meet the challenge.
HDS servers and storage are Windows Logo Listed and Certified for Windows Server 2012 on the Windows Server Catalog. In fact, HDS has more storage products listed for Windows Server 2012 than any other company.
