A Tapas Sampler of VMworld Barcelona

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - October 19, 2016) - As VMworld comes to a close, exhibitors and customers alike take time to digest the plate of current industry offerings, as well as how these offerings will be relevant in the digital transformation race. Hitachi Data Systems' VP of Infrastructure Products and Solutions, Bob Madaio, describes these initiatives and more, including HDS involvement in flash storage, convergence, and VM integration in this timely and easy-to-digest blog, A Tapas Sampler of VMworld Barcelona.

Excerpt: "Hitachi Data Systems is working on a number of cloud initiatives including storage tiering to the cloud, object storage clouds and the most obvious and closely aligned to VMware, last week's announcement of Hitachi Enterprise Cloud. Available as either a usage/outcome based managed cloud or as a traditionally purchased system, it creates a ready-to-use cloud platform that's pre-engineered (on top of the HDS Unified Compute Platform converged infrastructure, automation and APIs) with VMware vRealize Suite and all the HDS or HDS Partner services a user needs to get important applications migrated and into the cloud environment."

"Hitachi Enterprise Cloud creates a powerful on-ramp for our mutual customers to leverage VMware vRealize Suite as their cloud management platform in order to lower operational costs and increase business agility."

-- Rob Smoot, VMware VP or Product Marketing
