Marcel Escorcio delivered Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) Canada’s cloud message for the channel in a very unique place in 2014; an airplane hangar.
The company released three new products that are part of its Continuous Cloud Infrastructure platform.
Escorcio made available HDS’s Virtual Storage Platform G1000 and announced the Storage Virtualization Operating System (SVOS) along with a new version of the Hitachi Command Suite management platform.
If that wasn’t enough the regional vice president and GM of HDS Canada added new enhancements to its Unified Compute Platform converged portfolio.
Escorcio conservatively estimated that these new products could touch thousands of channel partners.
He added that the business demands in Canada are changing. This new platform is a heterogeneous solution for SMBs managed with one software suite, ensuring cost savings.
SVOS is a standalone storage virtualization operating system that provides a common architecture that can go across all platforms, including a software-defined data centre. SVOS will feature flash optimization, automated tiering and non-disruptive data migration.
