Hitachi unveils new solution to help social infrastructure field in joint venture with VMware
The Japan-based multinational conglomerate company, Hitachi, has announced it is set to offer a “Highly Reliable Platform Solution” for social infrastructure requirements of financial, public and transportation services following a joint venture with VMware.
The solution, which is to begin on 5 September, has been created to allow for the secure running of mission critical systems on a long-term basis in an open and modern system environment.
In October 2017, the two firms began to increase their work together by creating a highly reliable virtualisation platform for mission-critical systems.
The solution is operated by utilising Hitachi’s original function and increasing the reliability of the VMware vSphere, as well as offering it in collaboration with Hitachi’s server, RV3000.

Hitachi anticipates that this will enable the mission critical systems to continue to operate and be connected with other open systems to make it possible to organise system operation and optimise investments in IT.
It is expected that the support for vSphere will last approximately 10 years which will enable customers to use the support to allow for problems to be solved efficiently for their mission-critical systems.
