Hitachi Vantara, Cisco Sign Partner Agreements

Hitachi Vantara, an infrastructure, data management and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd. announced two global partnership agreements with Cisco.

The agreements bring Hitachi Vantara into Cisco’s Service Provider and Solution Technology Integrator (STI) partner programs, respectively, enabling Hitachi Vantara to integrate Cisco technologies with its storage products and position the company as a leading data center infrastructure and hybrid cloud-managed services provider.

Many businesses grapple with the complexities of data management and intelligence as they manage their expanding hybrid cloud footprints. According to IDC, 40 percent of companies will depend on multi-partner technology agreements by 2024 to address these concerns.

Coinciding with the STI agreement, Hitachi Vantara includes the Cisco UCS X-Series servers in its offerings to deliver a complete converged infrastructure (CI) solution.

The server line becomes part of the “Cisco and Hitachi Adaptive Solutions” portfolio which pairs Cisco compute and networking with Hitachi Vantara’s Energy Star-certified Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) to offer customers one of the most reliable, resilient and environmentally friendly IT infrastructure solutions on the market.

The solution is available for Hitachi Vantara customers, helping address a growing market need for converged data center infrastructure.

As a member of Cisco’s Service Provider program, Hitachi Vantara offers consumption-based managed services to Cisco customers looking for data center and hybrid cloud services. The services can help address a critical shortage of skilled workers in the IT industry, enabling enterprises to adopt emerging technologies more effectively and rely on a trusted organization to streamline their hybrid cloud operations.
