Hitachi Vantara partners with to develop a file management system to improve information management

By : |July 14, 2020 0

Hitachi Vantara with its partnership with will help customers reach new speeds for unstructured data and high-performance workloads. It will further help the end-user to have faster access and insights from skyrocketing unstructured data. The unstructured data includes emails, documents, health records, audio, video and images. or Weka is an innovation leader in high-performance, scalable file storage for data-intensive applications. The new OEM relationship with Weka will enhance Hitachi Vantara’s portfolio with a high-performance file system. The NVMe-native parallel file system will help Hitachi Vantara deliver solutions tightly coupled to an HCP datastore. This performant NAS solution will be well suited for use with AI, ML and analytics applications across many industries.

The company also announced an expansion of Hitachi Content Platform (HCP). HCp is its cloud object storage software solution for connecting data producers, users, applications and devices. The updates to HCP will better support next-generation unstructured workloads. This expansion will better support unstructured workloads to deliver almost 3.4 times more output over Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) protocol, resulting in lowered costs of up to 34%.

Updated storage nodes also deliver an improvement of three times the read and write performance. This simultaneously enables three times more capacity in the same rack space as the previous generation. This is especially significant as traditional NAS, primary workloads and cloud-native workloads are transitioning to object storage to meet high-performance requirements.

The new HCP expansion helps customers translate data into business insights faster, increase revenue from data generated by unstructured data, and improve application performance to drive a better digital experience for end-users.

Hitachi Vantara on the partnership

Brian Householder, president, Digital Infrastructure, Hitachi Vantara said:

“Organizations that are striving to be data-driven are recognizing the need to tap into vastly increasing amounts of unstructured data to gain a competitive edge. Hitachi Vantara is helping our customers maximize their infrastructure advantage by delivering significant performance improvements. They are also accessing and connecting their data to make faster and more accurate decisions.”

As the size and types of workloads are fundamentally changing, organizations need to focus not only on their ability to scale storage solutions, but also meet performance requirements. For example, at a typical Fortune 500 company, a mere 10% increase in data accessibility can result in more than $65 million in additional net income.

Amita Potnis, research director, Infrastructure Systems, IDC said:

“CIOs and IT professionals are no longer looking to object storage only for compliant, archive, tier-two or cold data. They are now looking at object storage to support new use cases and performant workloads. These organizations are also evaluating distributed file solutions. This is to handle scale and performance to support high-performance computing, real-time analytics and AI.”
