Cloud computing is the subject of high expectations because of its potential to play a key role in the use of IT to restore the international economy to robust growth and Hitachi's storage solutions have gained a strong reputation among international users for their virtualization technology which is part of the technical underpinning of the cloud. Hitachi's virtualization technology can optimize the total cost of a system with features that include improved storage utilization efficiency and reduced operation and management costs as shown by an example installation at the University HealthSystem Consortium which achieved savings on storage capacity of approximately 26% while also simplifying operation and maintenance work such as volume design and allocation. Hitachi is working to meet the expectations of its international customers through further development of storage virtualization technology to achieve even greater efficiency and operational cost savings.
