Their goal is to become as agile as possible and to innovate with their information. Unique, built-in and trusted storage virtualization capabilities in Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform help customers reclaim storage capacity, automate storage tiering, and reduce disk drive costs by as much as 70%.”
