Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) announces the Hitachi Unified Compute Platform 2000 (UCP 2000) converged system and UCP HC V240, which is the first member of the new Hitachi Unified Compute Platform HC (UCP HC) line of hyper-converged solutions. These solutions are built on proven Hitachi technology that aims to reduce costs and risk to data availability while alleviating complexity and accelerating time to value.
The Hitachi UCP 2000 simplifies deployment of private and hybrid clouds through the delivery of pre-tested, pre-built converged infrastructure platform that supports for all-flash configurations. It also provides a flexible, low-risk path to converged infrastructure that is ideal for general-purpose applications, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), databases and test development environments.
Meanwhile, UCP HC V240 is an automated, versatile and policy-driven, hyper-converged infrastructure appliance that features virtual machine (VM) centric pools of capacity. It is also designed for simplicity, featuring an all-in-one solution that accelerates time to value with rapid deployment. This enables customers to go from power-on to virtual machine creation in minutes.
Apart from that, UCP HC automates provisioning and orchestration, simplifies installation, management, patches and upgrades while providing linear scale-out that grows in small increments to meet business needs.
“We are seeing increasing demand to provide integrated systems that are reliable, trusted and certified cost-optimal, from core to edge across the enterprise. UCP HC V240 and UCP 2000 systems provide architectural options that can scale compute and storage resources while still offering simplified management for virtualisation specialists,” says Thomas Trela, Senior Director, Solutions and Cloud, Hitachi Data Systems.
