Hitachi Vantara, a subsidiary of Hitachi formed recently via the merger of three companies including HDS, has unveiled a new appliance for internet of things (IoT) deployments dubbed Hitachi IoT Appliance, powered by Lumada, Hitachi’s IoT platform.
Delivered as a turnkey system, the appliance’s “hyperconverged meets microservices” architecture combines Hitachi’s storage and compute with networking technologies and comes fully integrated with Hitachi’s latest Lumada software. Hitachi IoT Appliance has been fully pre-architected and pre-validated to provide a plug-and-play solution that can be easily deployed and production-ready in under an hour. This gives users the ability to more rapidly connect, monitor and extract actionable insights from their business and industrial assets.
Designed to make it simple and intuitive for customers to put Lumada, Hitachi’s intelligent, composable and flexible IoT platform, to work, Hitachi IoT Appliance can help users to get their IoT solution deployments up and running — fast. Users can more rapidly realise the benefits of Lumada’s advanced data blending and orchestration, artificial intelligence, machine learning and analytics capabilities, which help to rapidly gather and manage data for analysis and extract rich insights that support better business decision-making.
Hitachi IoT Appliance will be generally available later this year, wherever Lumada IoT Platform software is offered.
