Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) has launched new solutions designed to enhance the performance of clients' data centres.

The range of solutions - dubbed "Continuous Cloud Infrastructure" - are meant to drive customers' IT efficiency through a responsive, software-rich architecture that can quickly react to changing needs without continual redesign and disruption.

The 4 solutions are the Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System (SVOS), Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000 (VSP G1000), a new version of the Hitachi Command Suite management platform and enhancements to the existing Hitachi Unified Compute Platform converged computing offerings.

According to HDS, a move toward Continuous Cloud Infrastructure ensures customers can build the most available, automated and agile environment for next-generation data centers.

The solutions are also meant to provide the foundation for an IT infrastructure that can adapt to continuously changing business needs without disruption.

The solutions were launched concurrently at seven locations globally - including Brazil, Netherlands, Dubai and US among others.

Speaking at the Dubai launch, Tony Reid, chief operations officer for HDS' EMEA region said that the solutions meant to take care of client needs.

"Through these solutions, we are responding to demands from enterprise clients to develop solutions that enhance their processes and operations. We are seeing a trend where clients are calling on IT vendors to deliver less costly solutions," said Reid.

He noted that IT people within organizations are becoming more engaged to the commercial side of operations they were previously, more so in sub-Saharan Africa.

HDS provides IT, services and solutions aimed to help companies improve IT costs and agility.
