Hitachi Data Systems Announces Enhanced Integration With VMware Solutions, Debuts All-Flash Systems to Enable Digital Transformation

New Support for VMware NSX, Docker Containers and Enhanced VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes Strengthens Converged and Hyperconverged Portfolio to Automate IT, Improve Security and Enable Application Continuity

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - August 25, 2016) - Hitachi Data Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), is now offering a new series of solutions designed for the software-defined data center, empowering customers to realize the full power of digital transformation, which requires a modern, agile IT environment in order to take advantage of cloud, open-source and emerging technologies to deliver reliable IT services.

The company today announced support for VMware NSX network virtualization platform, which when combined with the trusted family of high-performance converged and hyperconverged infrastructure systems from Hitachi Data Systems provides a solid foundation for powering solutions that customers can build upon with confidence. Now, Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) customers will benefit from NSX, which will help automate deployment of applications with complete networking services and advanced network virtualization capabilities. NSX helps them improve security with microsegmentation and granular security policy enforcement. Hitachi Data Systems has entered into an OEM agreement whereby the company will sell VMware NSX for use with Hitachi Unified Compute Platform.

In addition, the recently announced Hitachi Unified Compute Platform HC V240 (UCP HC) hyperconverged system, powered by VMware Virtual SAN, now supports Docker container technology to provide a robust platform for both traditional and cloud-native applications. Organizations can significantly improve application agility and accelerate the transition toward hybrid cloud.

And, with the debut of all-flash versions of UCP 4000, UCP 4000E, UCP 2000 and UCP HC V240F, Hitachi now offers all-flash configurations across its entire portfolio of converged and hyperconverged infrastructure platforms, to deliver powerful performance for enterprise applications and help customers move to an all-flash data center. Hitachi's hyperconverged solution, UCP HC V240F, powered by VMware Virtual SAN software-defined storage, helps organizations reduce costs and eliminate management complexity, while delivering high performance.

Significant enhancements have also been made to Hitachi's support for VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes to provide high availability, better performance, simplified storage management and control for virtualized environments.

From 2013, NTT Communications has been providing cPaaS service, SkyWay. Its customer’s expectations for leveraging WebRTC technology are not only typical real-time communication use cases such as Web conference, remote education, but also IoT use cases such as remote camera monitoring, smart-glass, and robotic. Because of this, NTT Communications has numerous IoT business use-cases that its customers are developing on top of PaaS. WebRTC will lead IoT businesses to be more innovative and address current issues in the Edge Computing scenario. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kensaku Komatsu, a research and development engineer in Department of Technology Development at NTT Communications, talked about the practical experience, activity and potential of WebRTC for IoT and Edge Computing scenario.
It is of utmost importance for the future success of WebRTC to ensure that interoperability is operational between web browsers and any WebRTC-compliant client. To be guaranteed as operational and effective, interoperability must be tested extensively by establishing WebRTC data and media connections between different web browsers running on different devices and operating systems. In his session at WebRTC Summit at @ThingsExpo, Dr. Alex Gouaillard, CEO and Founder of CoSMo Software, presented a comprehensive view of the numerous testing challenges researchers have faced before arriving at the first release candidate of the WebRTC specifications.
Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interoperability. It has lots of potential to address current issues around IoT - security, connectivity and so on - based on P2P technology. It will become a key-component especially in edge computing use cases, in his view.
WebRTC is great technology to build your own communication tools. It will be even more exciting experience it with advanced devices, such as a 360 Camera, 360 microphone, and a depth sensor camera. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Masashi Ganeko, a manager at INFOCOM Corporation, introduced two experimental projects from his team and what they learned from them. "Shotoku Tamago" uses the robot audition software HARK to track speakers in 360 video of a remote party. "Virtual Teleport" uses a multiple Intel RealSense Depth Camera to scan 3D and build 3D models in real-time, and display as hologram in front of remote participants.
