Hitachi Vantara’s EverFlex Data Services Solutions Selected by BMW Group to Accelerate Hybrid Cloud Journey
“For nearly a decade, Hitachi has consistently provided exceptional service quality to support the critical operations of the BMW Group. We are proud that the BMW Group has once again trusted us as their technology and services partner for the next six years,” said Daniel Dalle Carbonare, Senior Vice President Global Platinum Accounts at Hitachi Vantara. “With the most powerful and flexible storage and services on the market, whatever the evolution of data volumes: BMW Group is ready!”
More performance, less CO2
Hitachi Vantara has supported BMW Group since 2012 with its innovative Storage-as-a-Service solution and the new deployment will deliver a much smaller footprint and a significant reduction in power consumption. These changes will reduce CO2 emissions and help BMW Group save on energy costs.
As BMW Group accelerates its hybrid cloud journey, it will use market-leading Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) 5600 enterprise storage arrays. We believe the VSP 5600 portfolio is why Hitachi Vantara was recognized as a Leader in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Primary Storage in 2021.
The VSP 5600 Portfolio with Hitachi’s 100% Data Availability Guarantee is designed to easily handle demanding analytics or critical workloads with extremely low latency.
Hitachi will support BMW Group in 10 key countries, including GermanyWE, China, Japan and the UK
