Singapore’s StarHub and India’s Infosys are some of the firms that have realised storage optimisation and savings with Hitachi Data Systems solutions.

StarHub and Infosys are some of the firms in the Asia Pacific that have cost-effectively re-architected their data centre and optimised IT assets with solutions from Hitachi Data Systems (HDS). According to a press release issued by HDS on 29 June, “these customers are saving the equivalent of millions of dollars in storage costs and are experiencing data centre reliability and availability benefits.”

HDS’ cloud offerings is said to have lead to a 10 percent savings on Infosys’ storage investments and optimised the Indian technology service provider’s storage infrastructure.

StarHub also deployed HDS solutions for better storage utilisation and virtualisation benefits. In a StarHub statement, vice president of information services, David Skinner, said the Singapore telco experienced year-on-year cost savings, while benefiting from the most efficient, high availability (99.99 per cent) storage on a sustained basis.

“Data is critical to every aspect of our personal and business lives, but it’s not useful if it’s stuck in silos or inaccessible when and how we need it,” said Brian Householder, senior vice president, worldwide marketing and business development, Hitachi Data Systems.

“HDS is solving this real business problem by transforming traditional, siloed data centres into information centres where customer data becomes useful and actionable,” he added.
