Hitachi Limited has select enterprise backup and recovery provider Commvault as one of its backup providers for its managed SAP HANA Cloud Service in Japan.
Takeshi Sone, general manager, solution business promotion department, IT platform products management division, Hitachi, said by 2020, SAP HANA is expected to be widely used by enterprises.
“To support this trend, Hitachi Ltd is expanding our SAP HANA infrastructure and strengthening our cloud service, empowering Japanese on-premise SAP HANA users to move to the cloud. This shift will reduce day-to-day resource requirements for system setup through operation for SAP HANA implementation and improve application performance, minimise system downtime and drive greater business process automation and efficiency. The partnership Hitachi Ltd has with Commvault allows us to meet the growing demands for cloud solutions and maintain quality customer satisfaction levels.”
According to Commvault, its back-up services will bring multiple advantages to the Hitachi HANA Cloud Service, including increased integration allowing direct backups of the SAP HANA database; deduplication of backups to decrease overall size; a unified user interface to support Sybase and VMware databases; licensing based on 1TB capacity units; and support from the Commvault engineering and customer support teams as well as Hitachi.
“We are excited to partner with Hitachi, Ltd around their growing cloud services offerings. With Commvault, Hitachi, Ltd can empower businesses with end-to-end data protection, simplified management and portability of SAP data. This allows companies to access and understand data quickly, thus providing them with a solid, unified foundation to derive deeper business insights and gain a competitive edge,” said Yuichi Tawara, vice president for Japan, Commvault.
