Hitachi provides Hitachi Cloud, a suite of services based on the federated cloud. It allows combined use of multiple cloud services of different types, including the "private cloud" managed by users, the "managed cloud" provided by Hitachi and the "partners' public cloud" such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

These cloud services have different management systems and operation methods from each other. By using the web service called "federated portal," however, they can be managed and operated in an integrated manner with the same interface.

A federated cloud allows users to selectively use different cloud services with varied characteristics to best meet their purposes. As such, a federated cloud can provide the full advantages of cloud services, including cost reductions, reinforced security and flexible changes in resources.
