Hitachi Data Systems Eliminates Downtime And Lowers Cost Of Virtual Storage Migration

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE:HIT) (TSE:6501), today introduced a nondisruptive migration service capability that migrates from Hitachi enterprise storage to Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) and is the industry’s first storage migration solution that eliminates host and application downtime. Nondisruptive migration by Hitachi allows organizations to significantly reduce risk, eliminate business disruption, and more efficiently manage migration processes across multivendor storage systems, resulting in 90 percent less effort compared to industry averages.

According to a survey on migrating to new technologies by TechValidate, an independent market research firm, 70 percent of businesses reported schedule overruns and 64 percent reported budget overruns. With overall storage migration costs exceeding US$15,000 per terabyte, organizations are under increasing pressure to identify and adopt best practices to lower their IT operating expenses and redirect savings in support of new investments. Leveraging proven Hitachi migration methodologies, nondisruptive migration uniquely enables host-transparent storage migration that allows IT organizations to mitigate the outage window due to data migrations and reduce risk and expenditures.

“In today’s business climate, organizations need to accelerate innovation and reduce operational expenses to increase their competitiveness,” said Hu Yoshida, vice president and CTO, Hitachi Data Systems. “Only HDS provides the migration capabilities to eliminate downtime while dramatically reducing the risks and costs associated with adopting new technologies. The key to achieving this capability is that virtualization, specifically our proven Hitachi controller-based storage virtualization, is at the core of our new service and gives us distinct advantages in efficiency and cost effectiveness. By leveraging our new nondisruptive migration service capabilities, organizations can more efficiently manage migration processes to meet business requirements through a comprehensive methodology that addresses the people, process and technology involved in the transition.”

“ViON delivers hardware and software as on-demand, capacity services to federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense, and at the core of our private cloud offering is Hitachi controller-based storage virtualization,” said Tom Frana, president and CEO, ViON Corporation. “After testing and validating the nondisruptive migration for Hitachi VSP, we believe the service is superior to other migration services in that we will be able to execute a technology refresh to Hitachi VSP in days and eliminate host and application downtime. The nondisruptive migration service by Hitachi addresses the requirements of our most demanding enterprise customers; no other virtualization technology vendors come close to Hitachi storage virtualization.”
