Hitachi Vantara launches cloud FinOps services
Hitachi Vantara, the digital infrastructure, data management and analytics, and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd., has introduced Hitachi Cloud FinOps Services. This new offering provides a portfolio of services designed to help organizations optimize cloud economics. The end goal: help organizations save money as they deploy their hybrid, multi-cloud or distributed cloud services—while still maintaining the proper agility and scale to deliver their business and IT results.
According to Hitachi, as companies operating at scale deploy more cloud services, they often find that ungoverned on-demand consumption, and unexpected management and operational costs, are eating up promised cost savings and quickly driving budgets to overrun.
Hitachi Cloud FinOps Services are intended to address this cloud cost paradox by optimizing cloud cost and investments by providing visibility and management across a client’s cloud environments.
“Managing cloud costs and investments across multiple cloud environments is complex, and it’s easy to overspend on cloud services with limited visibility and predictability on utilization,” said Roger Lvin, president, Digital Solutions Business Unit, Hitachi Vantara. “Hitachi Cloud FinOps Services addresses this complexity and lowers the total cost of ownership through mapping spend data, tagging, allocating shared costs equitably, and recommending data-driven cost take-out measures.”
The services are delivered through a unique E3 methodology, which is a comprehensive application and data modernization approach that enables clients to envision, evaluate and execute a FinOps-led program to address the complexity of managing cloud environments.
With Hitachi Cloud FinOps Services, customers receive a turnkey solution that provides the following:
- Assessment of the customer’s current cloud cost relative to benchmarks, industry standards and provide a recommendation on where costs can be optimized.
- Implementation of changes that will take out costs from cloud platforms and enable the effective use of real-time cloud cost decision support. Cloud experts map spending data to the business, define budgets and forecasts, set tagging strategy and compliance, build AI-enabled cost anomaly detection, budget alerts for cost visibility, cost recovery and predictability.
- For enterprises that need continuous as-a-service support for managing cloud costs, Hitachi Vantara offers an always-on, managed service to optimize and govern cloud spend against business objectives. This includes automated enterprise-wide cloud consumption reporting, resource tracking, cost monitoring and continuous cost optimization through right-sizing and usage of correct cloud services. Hitachi Vantara delivers automation and integration for managing cloud cost metrics and supports cloud service lifecycle management through financial analysis and cost management.
