The goal of the collaboration between Swisscom IT Services and Hitachi Data Systems was to build a central, server-independent SAN and storage infrastructure management resource. Swisscom IT Services needed to manage more data with the same number of people and at lower costs. Compared to non-centralized options, the flexible user demand model offered easier management, a reduced total cost of ownership and better quality - including faster provisioning and professional management. Swisscom IT Services selected a common storage portfolio to provide both their internal and external businesses with storage services. Customers are able to choose from three levels of Hitachi Data Systems storage services.
