Hitachi backs Windows Server 2012

Hitachi Data Systems is getting firmly behind Windows Server 2012 with the announcement that Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP), Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS), and Hitachi Compute Blade are now fully certified with full support for Windows Server 2012.

"Windows Server 2012 is one of the most significant releases from Microsoft to date," said Jim Beckman, vice president, alliances, Hitachi Data Systems.

"With leading information technology solutions from HDS and Microsoft Windows Server 2012, customers can now host and manage Microsoft application deployments in an always-on environment.

"Our customers have already started deploying Windows Server 2012 in their production IT environments with plans for large-scale deployments for their Microsoft Windows and Linux applications."

According to Hitachi officials, the combination of the new operating system and Hitachi hardware allows clustering up to 64 nodes with thousands of virtual machines.

The officials stated that Hitachi's systems provide seamless integration with System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012.

Applications can be migrated between virtual machines within or between data centres with no interruption to service.
