Hitachi Vantara is large, respected enterprise storage systems and services provider that will deliver, install, support and remotely manage its block, file and object storage systems as private cloud storage, paid for by the customer on a monthly basis. Hitachi Storage as a Service (STaaS) is aggressively marketed within a portfolio of Hitachi managed enterprise cloud services. Under STaaS, Hitachi Vantara retains ownership of the storage assets and manages them remotely though out the life of the service contract.
There are two STaaS customer entry points: Essentials and Full Service (see below). Contracts between Hitachi Vantara and the customer are based on service level agreements (SLAs). Hitachi Vantara’s Professional Services group pre-designs the private cloud storage environment, delivers, installs and operationalizes the STaaS environment within 60 days or less. Customers can incorporate existing Hitachi storage and IBM mainframe environments into this service.
Customers are given immediate access to real time and historical reporting and analytics tools for capacity usage (see Figure 1 below) and other metrics.
