Redefine Your IT Future With Continuous Cloud Infrastructure

  1. 1. The Era of Business-Defined IT According to IDC analysts, we are in the midst of “the third platform” which is built on mobile devices and apps, cloud services, mobile broadband networks, big data analytics and social media. By 2020, it is expected to drive at least 80% of industry growth for information and communications technologies (ICT)1 . This is a connected, always-on world. Business leaders face tremendous challenges in keeping up with the rate of new technology, subsequent data growth, perpetually changing customer expectations and keen competition. To survive and thrive in this inevitably frenetic climate, IT and business need to forge a new partnership for the overall success and survival of the enterprise. IT must become a powerful accelerant to meet ever-changing business needs, promote revenue generation and seize new business opportunities. A newly minted era has emerged: the era of business-defined IT. Continuous Cloud Infrastructure In this new era of business-defined IT, line-of-business leaders are looking to the data center to be future proof, reliable, adaptable and responsive to change. Hitachi’s vision for a business-defined data center starts with the concept of Continuous Cloud Infrastructure, which identifies the industry requirements for cloud infrastructure to deliver a business-defined data center that is always: Available - No downtime, no disruption, no matter what Automated - Reduce complexity and enable policy-based and applications-aligned management Agile - Deploy one platform for all workloads to accelerate time to value Efficient - Provide always-efficient infrastructure that reduces capex and opex Continuous Cloud Infrastructure is agile, available, automated and acutely efficient to provide a solid foundation for a future-ready enterprise.
