Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS) on Monday released what it described as three new ways for organizations, providers and partners to gain the benefits of the cloud without compromising the control, flexibility or security of their data. The three are Hitachi Cloud – Compute as a Service, a new managed private cloud offering, Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP), which “streamlines and accelerate the process of building and managing cloud” and the Hitachi Cloud Service Provider Program.

Hitachi Cloud – Compute as a Service allows IT to shift from a configuration that is based on technology with upfront capex costs to an offering that is based on outcomes and elastic pay-as-you-go pricing, the company said in a release.

Meanwhile, Hitachi UCP includes new options to access VMware vCloud Air and Microsoft Azure for any organization that prefers to build and manage private and hybrid cloud.

With Hitachi Cloud Service Provider Program, HDS said it is creating a network of CSPs that offer cloud services that are “Powered by Hitachi Data Systems”.

It delivers enterprise-grade cloud technology to partners, coupled with joint business planning and cloud service design.
