Japan, Mar 13, 2024: Hitachi Ltd. has announced a strategic alliance with Amazon Web Services Japan G.K. (AWS) to bolster hybrid cloud solutions over the next three years, beginning in April 2024. This partnership aims to enhance system modernization and cloud migration for customers.

Since 2021, Hitachi has collaborated with AWS to develop solutions facilitating the integration of various data sources effectively. This collaboration achieved joint data operation across Hitachi’s storage systems and AWS cloud storage service Amazon S3 in 2022. Additionally, in 2023, Hitachi launched the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform on cloud (“VSP on cloud”) and co-created solutions to realize mission-critical hybrid cloud environments.

The strategic alliance focuses on addressing increasing customer demands for accelerated data integration and utilization, driven by the rise of Generative AI. Hitachi and AWS will work together to drive system modernization and cloud migration over several years.

Key points of the strategic alliance agreement include:

Flexible Data Utilization with Hybrid Clouds: Hitachi and AWS will combine various solutions to create free, safe, and secure data utilization within hybrid cloud environments. This initiative aims to optimize and automate shared data infrastructure operating through on-premise Hitachi Storage and VSP on cloud.

Joint Promotion: Hitachi and AWS will jointly launch hybrid cloud solutions, conducting joint promotions and seminars to accelerate corporate system modernization and AWS adoption.

Enhancing Support Systems: Hitachi aims to increase the number of AWS-certified engineers to around 4,000, focusing on those with experience building and operating critical systems. These certified engineers will develop and provide hybrid cloud solutions and deliver managed services to improve system operations.

Muneyuki Watanabe, Executive Officer and Partnership Management Division Head at Amazon Web Services Japan G.K., welcomed the alliance, emphasizing its potential to contribute to business innovation and data utilization for clients. Jun Abe, Senior Vice President and Executive Officer, CEO of Cloud Services Platform Business Unit, Hitachi, Ltd., highlighted the collaboration’s role in accelerating digital transformation and supporting data-driven management in various sectors.
