Hitachi Data Systems Unveils New Software-Defined Infrastructure Solutions for All Transactional, Analytics-Driven Workloads

Hitachi Data Systems announced a leap forward in its technology leadership for delivering software-defined infrastructures that enable customers to simplify IT and free data from traditional hardware and location constraints, making it more accessible for all existing and new analytics-driven workloads. With the newest additions to the Hitachi VSP family - the G200, G400, G600 and the upcoming G800 - Hitachi Data Systems is the only IT vendor to address customer workload requirements from entry to the mainframe with a single software stack. Extending the reach of powerful software capabilities that are built into Hitachi SVOS allows the entire VSP family to offer native heterogeneous storage virtualisation and multi-site active-active storage - as well as fully compatible data migration, replication and management. Customers now have the ability to choose systems based on the necessary capacity, performance and price required to meet their business goals, not because of functional difference. Customers looking at smaller systems will now get access to the same virtualisation technology that has existed in prior HDS high-end systems that have achieved the high overall product and use-case specific scores within Gartner's Critical Capabilities for General-Purpose, High-End Storage Arrays1. The Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) portfolio has been expanded with new hyper-converged and converged infrastructure models that now cover customers' needs to rapidly and more easily support core to edge IT workloads. The latest additions to the UCP family include the hyper-converged Hitachi UCP 1000 for VMware EVO:RAIL, and the converged Hitachi UCP 2000, both use new rack servers and target small to medium or remote or branch office environments. The Hitachi UCP 6000 converged model integrates the recently launched Hitachi CB 2500 blade servers, and delivers unmatched price-performance for mission critical workloads. The hyper-converged architecture of the new Hitachi Hyper Scale-Out Platform (HSP) provides cost-effective compute performance and on-demand capacity. Capable of ingesting massive amounts of mixed data types across a distributed, clustered architecture, the simple, automated management of HSP allows elastic data growth by using Hitachi file system technology with open source management and virtualisation software. HSP is the ideal scale-out platform for Hadoop environments, allowing users to analyze data in place and eliminate the need to move large data sets to perform analytics functions for big data. Hitachi Automation Director, a new application that works with the Hitachi Command Suite management infrastructure, provides configurable best-practice-based service templates for simple, application-specific provisioning of storage resources to databases, applications and VDI environments. Built-in support for role-based access control means that, once established, these templates can be used by business users in a move to self-service provisioning. As a lightweight complement to Hitachi Command Suite, Hitachi Infrastructure Director is a new storage configuration and management application that uses the new VSP systems' APIs to provide simple, intuitive management, guided by a built-in recommendation engine, for environments in which simplicity is more important than the need for manual control of every detail. Hitachi Infrastructure Director gives users the power to direct simplified management operations to rapidly deploy new storage systems and services for the new models in the VSP family.

Mediclinic Selects HCR for Connected Health as Foundation for its EPR

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS) has announced that Mediclinic Southern Africa has deployed Hitachi Clinical Repository (HCR) for connected health as the foundation for its centralized electronic patient record (EPR) system. Through its Social Innovation initiative, Hitachi Data Systems is realizing its mission to bring real-world solutions to market that deliver on the promise of the Internet of Things that matter. The organization wanted to build a connected health environment that could unify patient data from across its more than 50 locations into a single, unified database, but had struggled with the lack of integration between its medical information systems. For Mediclinic, the project's primary objective was to build a secure information infrastructure and centralized file repository that would result in improved physician access to health records and support better outcomes and reduce healthcare costs for its patients. For its vendor-neutral archive, Mediclinic selected Hitachi Data Systems' HCR solution, which uniquely unifies data from disparate EPR technologies into a single, holistic view. HCR for connected health uses Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) technology to form a multipurpose archive that enables all clinical and nonclinical data to be stored, backed up, preserved and retrieved on a single platform. By aggregating data from previously siloed applications and making it shareable across multiple caregivers, HCR for connected health provides healthcare providers with direct access to a patient's entire medical record, regardless of their location. With HCR for connected health deployed, Mediclinic is now successfully moving all of its image and data files into a centralized clinical repository. By supporting any image or document type regardless of origin or vendor, HCR has given Mediclinic the flexibility and freedom to use any EPR solution without fear of painful and expensive migrations or expansion costs.
