What is Hardware as a Service?
For all the benefits of technology, it can get outdated quickly, and updating new infrastructure can be very costly - especially for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). Nevertheless, businesses have to utilise the latest technology if they want to keep their competitive edge. As such, Hardware as a Service offers SMEs a flexible and cost-effective way of keeping their IT infrastructure up-to-date.
Having its roots in Software as a Service, Hardware as a Service is a subscription-based business model that puts together IT hardware, software, installation, and maintenance into one package. Subsequently, businesses are paying for the service to run the hardware rather than just ‘renting’ the hardware alone.
Hitachi offers Hardware as a Service, also known as On-Premise Infrastructure as a Service, solution that addresses the following key challenges many organisations face:
Hitachi's Hardware as a Service deploys and manages IT hardware that combines computing, storage, and networking capabilities into a single system. Such capabilities include hardware redundancy with no single point of failure, virtualization technology with failover feature, remote monitoring, and more. Businesses only need to provide a server room, power utility, cooling, and telco line for Hitachi to deliver this service.
With Hitachi's Hardware as a Service, your business can reap the benefits of the newest technologies and work to its fullest potential with reduced risks and investment.
