Bangalore: Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), a provider of services oriented storage solutions has unveiled its green data center in Yokohama, Japan. The Yokohama Third Center is claimed to be one of the most robust and reliable in the industry. It occupies 10,000 square meters of total floor space. The green facility by HDS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, incorporates power-efficient data center technology designed to achieve a benchmarking rating of 1.6 PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness).

To maintain a competitive edge, today's businesses demand technology infrastructure with a 100 percent uptime. With machines running constantly, businesses quickly find that such high levels of energy usage are not sustainable and have a negative impact on the bottom line. "Our products like the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform V and VM and Hitachi Dynamic Provisioning, and today with the Yokohama Third Center, provide significant improvements in capacity utilization, while lowering customers' power and cooling consumption rates," said Asim Zaheer, Vice President of Product and Competitive Marketing, HDS.

To meet customer needs for security, cost management and efficiency, the new data center has been established with the objective of helping businesses adopt a 'greener' and more sustainable approach that enables them to streamline operations, lower operational expenditures. Hitachi's Yokohama Third Center provides customers a range of operations management services, including storage management, with a centrally managed and troubleshooting service. Equipped with storage technologies ranging from Hitachi Storage Virtualization to Hitachi Dynamic Provisioning, the green data center is poised to cater to the ever-changing corporate needs.
