Nutanix announced its phased IT deployment with Hitachi Elevator, supporting the global leading elevator brand with its digital transformation ambition. Hitachi Elevator’s intelligent functions for digital operations were enhanced, by deploying big data, remote surveillance and manufacturing execution system applications, as well as migrating other applications off a legacy multi-tier environment based on EMC storage, to the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform.
As an ongoing effort to further reduce costs, Hitachi Elevator decided to adopt Nutanix AHV versus continuing with its original VMware vSphere virtualization solution. This fully integrated cloud based architecture, comes with full technical support, and requires no separate installation, which greatly reduces the cost of enterprise virtualization including licensing and management.
According to Li Zhipeng, Head of Hitachi Elevator’s IT Department. “The Nutanix solution can be scaled out, so we can simply add more nodes if we need to. With minimal management, demands for CPU, storage space and memory can be met very quickly. If there is a system glitch, we only need to go to Nutanix, without endless handoffs between vendors as we did before, which also streamlines the subsequent management process,”
Matt Young, Senior Vice President and Head of Asia-Pacific and Japan, Nutanix said, “The easy to use and flexible scalability of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform and AHV has solved many problems existing in the legacy datacenter architecture, such as the operational and datacenter complexity, siloed deployments for different workloads and difficulties with expansion. We look forward to continue helping forward-looking organizations like Hitachi Elevator to achieve its digital transformation objectives and to leveraging valuable data and information to its fullest.”
