Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), have announced broad support for the new release of Microsoft Windows Server 2012. Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP), Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS), and Hitachi Compute Blade are now fully certified with full support for the Windows Server 2012 operating system. Windows Server 2012 gives HDS and Microsoft customers an enterprise infrastructure to quickly deploy and host Microsoft Windows and Linux applications. Hitachi Data Systems and Microsoft have worked together on this endeavor since early 2010 to ensure the best possible user experience with full service and support for enterprise data center deployments.

“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.”

“Windows Server 2012 was designed and built around the cloud. It offers customers advanced technology and the ease of use that comes with familiar Microsoft products,” said Mike Schutz, general manager, product marketing, Windows Server and Tools, Microsoft Corporation. “We’re excited about Hitachi Data Systems support of Windows Server 2012 for enterprise customers. We expect that HDS expertise and reliability will help our customers realize demonstrable value from deploying Windows Server 2012.”
