Hitachi Vantara Announces Hitachi Kubernetes Service
January 20, 2021

Hitachi Vantara announced the availability of Hitachi Kubernetes Service, enabling customers to consistently and securely deploy, manage, monitor, and govern Kubernetes clusters across major cloud providers and on premises.

This empowers developers to deploy workloads on their platform of choice, and eliminates vendor lock-in.

Containers are being adopted faster and more comprehensively than previously anticipated. The containerization of applications enables them to be deployed and run easily across different computing environments, providing substantial infrastructure cost savings. Kubernetes is an emerging technology standard for creating, managing, and orchestrating containers and the new Hitachi Kubernetes Service brings Hitachi's technology expertise in the enterprise, and global training and support to this sector.

Hitachi Kubernetes Service helps organizations accelerate the adoption of cloud-native applications by streamlining the management of the underlying infrastructure and Kubernetes cluster deployments. It also significantly simplifies how developers will use and consume IT-delivered container services whether these are delivered from on-premises or hybrid environments. The extensible self-service catalogue allows customers to optimize their experience by customizing it to match their business requirements and rapidly deploy curated applications across a hybrid Kubernetes landscape. Hitachi Kubernetes Service provides enterprise-grade security with secure communications between the Kubernetes clusters and the SaaS management plane in the cloud.

Key benefits are:

- Simplicity and ease of deployment through a single management pane that deploys, manages and governs across all of a customer's private, hybrid and multicloud implementations to reduce risk and complexity

- A unified dashboard that enables efficient management and governance of multiple on-premises or the cloud-based Kubernetes clusters and the large number of resources across them

- Centralized monitoring and alerting that operators can use to solve Kubernetes root-cause analysis challenges to lower the mean time to respond and recover to achieve service level objectives

- Pre-populated applications in the robust service catalog to help developers start rapidly, using the latest Kubernetes-based orchestration and container services

One key concern in DevOps is the lack of trained and experienced personnel. Hitachi Vantara offers extensive customer training including 10 foundational courses ranging from DevOps essentials to certification-level training courses to help customers build necessary skills. Additionally, the entire Hitachi Kubernetes Service is a managed SaaS environment supported by Hitachi Vantara's Global Customer Service organization.

"While our customers love container technology, they are challenged by the complexity to deploy and securely manage containers at scale across multiple cloud environments," said Bobby Soni, President, Digital Infrastructure, Hitachi Vantara. "Today, we are helping simplify and solve the multicloud Kubernetes challenge for our customers with the introduction of Hitachi Kubernetes Service. With this enterprise-grade service, our customers now have the freedom of a true agnostic platform, the flexibility of an extensible self-service catalogue, accompanied with world-class training and Hitachi global support to help their development teams drive business results."
