Data Center Consolidation

Allowing Federal Agencies to Simplify Data Management
  • Hitachi Data Systems Federal (HDS Federal) products help federal agencies merge redundant systems into common platforms, eliminate duplicative data and collapse legacy applications
  • HDS Federal helps federal agencies reduce costs, optimize legacy infrastructures and mitigate the massive influx of agency data
  • HDS Federal’s consolidation tactics and solutions offer a smooth transition from physical infrastructures to cloud-based and virtual platforms

Federal Challenge

As the amount of data agencies collect exponentially increases, finding cost-effective, efficient and sustainable data management methods of managing it is not only a priority, but a government mandate.  With agencies spending approximately 79% ($62B a year) of their total IT budget maintaining legacy systems, the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) requires agencies to consolidate data centers and streamline efficiency, cost and long-term sustainability.

While working to reduce data center footprints, many agencies struggle to balance consolidation with the ever increasing data growth and management needs. Fortunately, data center consolidation doesn’t have to be a daunting challenge. A holistic data management strategy can allow agencies to consolidate and optimize data center utilization, reduce floor space, energy consumption and begin applying more resources to make data work for agency missions.

Hitachi Data Systems Federal Solution

HDS Federal solutions allow agencies to simplify their data management strategies and meet the requirements of the FDCCI. HDS Federal products help agencies merge redundant systems into common platforms, eliminate duplicative data and collapse legacy applications. These steps reduce complexity, heighten information sharing, and avoid wasteful spending.

In today’s as a Service or cloud-first environments, HDS Federal’s consolidation tactics and solutions offer a smooth transition from physical infrastructures to cloud-based and virtual platforms. 

At the core of HDS Federal’s consolidation solutions is ensuring an intelligent approach to data storage. By providing virtualized and tiered storage, along with archiving solutions that are all format-agnostic, HDS Federal affords agencies to consolidate data centers, reduce costs, optimize legacy infrastructures and mitigate the massive influx of agency data.
