The Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform provides an opportunity for us to transform our customers' data centers, and it takes another step forward to providing customers with a unified platform
Denver, CO (Vocus) September 27, 2010
Advanced Systems Group (ASG), the Denver-based IT consulting, integration, and project management firm, today announces its support for the new Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform, the next-generation storage platform from Hitachi Data Systems. The Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform offers the industry’s only 3D scaling storage platform for all data types and —when combined with the new Hitachi Command Suite management software — delivers significant benefits in performance, flexibility, power consumption and total cost of ownership (TCO) to customers.
Hitachi is showcasing the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform today at the Hitachi Information Forum event located at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. The Hitachi Information Forum is a series of global events that bring together Hitachi Data Systems executives, customers, partners and media, to discuss the latest innovations in IT infrastructure.
“The Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform provides an opportunity for us to transform our customers’ data centers, and it takes another step forward to providing customers with a unified platform,” says ASG Chief Technology Officer Mark Teter. “It allows us to plug in leading hardware and software technology, without rip and replace, and to extend customers' existing investments.”
“Companies are literally drowning in their own data,” continues Teter. “The incredible growth of corporate information has put a tremendous burden on data center managers. Unlike other storage vendors who simply offer increased storage capabilities, Hitachi continues to offer new and innovative solutions to help improve data center efficiencies and allow employees to easily access both structured and unstructured data.”
“Hitachi Data Systems focuses on creating innovative, best-in-class solutions from an application and use case perspective that help solve our customers’ most pressing challenges to improve operational efficiency,” said Mike Walkey, senior vice president, Global Channels, Hitachi Data Systems. “ASG is a key partner and integrator that understands the issues our customers face every day. Whether it’s managing data centers or setting up access for remote employees, ASG has a proven track record of successfully implementing new forms of technology.”
In addition to Hitachi, ASG works with a wide variety of leading companies to implement such technologies as data back-up services, enterprise software solutions and network management services. ASG provides a variety of IT consulting areas of emphasis including virtualization, professional services, and assessments and audits.
