Sify Technologies, a provider of internet and enterprise services, has launched its SLA driven utility based on-demand storage service powered by Hitachi Data Systems, to manage the lifecycle of enterprise information, from its inception to its final disposal.
Sify claims that its storage service reduces the complexities of deploying and managing multiple storage tiers, and lowers operational costs by automating management with need-based pricing. This is combined with Adaptable SAN Storage and NAS to virtualise IT assets into consolidated manage pools of IT resources to support applications and data types from a single infrastructure.
The service offers availability guarantee of 99.99% on the storage system to meet specific application and business uptime requirements; and incorporates ILM strategies and tools to improve reduction of the total cost of ownership, the company claims.
Vivekanand Venugopal, vice president & GM of Hitachi Data Systems, said: Sify’s On-Demand Storage service powered by Hitachi Data Systems solutions is certain to benefit CIOs who are tasked with aligning IT objectives to business needs.
“The Hitachi cloud portfolio delivers the industry’s most integrated set of computing resources to create a single pool of virtualised block, file and content storage to support the diverse uses that are evolving in cloud computing today, and enables organisations to adopt cloud services at their own pace. This perfectly complements Sify’s usage-based business model.
