Hitachi Vantara, a company known for its expertise in data storage, infrastructure, and hybrid cloud management, has announced a groundbreaking partnership with NVIDIA to develop the next generation of transformative artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. This collaboration will lead to the creation of a portfolio of solutions called Hitachi iK, which aims to simplify the process of generating AI-driven results by combining industry-specific capabilities with existing AI solutions to achieve more relevant results for individual businesses.

As new data-intensive technologies such as generative artificial intelligence continue to transform businesses, they are also putting additional strain on IT environments. A recent report by S&P Global Market Intelligence found that only a third of respondents believe their companies can consistently handle the internal demand for AI workloads. The partnership between Hitachi Vantara and NVIDIA is designed to address these challenges by introducing hybrid AI capabilities in the cloud to accelerate the generation of business insights.

Sheila Rohra, CEO of Hitachi Vantar, emphasized the significance of the partnership, highlighting the company’s ability to leverage broad expertise across industry sectors to support the acceleration of AI-driven digital transformation. This collaboration will combine NVIDIA’s AI leadership with Hitachi Vantara’s expertise in hybrid infrastructure solutions and cloud services to help customers overcome future challenges and establish a solid foundation for data-driven innovation.

Hitachi iK solutions use the latest NVIDIA artificial intelligence technologies and Hitachi Vantara advanced storage platforms to meet market demands and facilitate the digital transformation of enterprises. Customers will be able to choose from a range of consumption models to ensure optimized performance and a strong return on investment. The first product in the Hitachi iK portfolio, powered by the NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPU, is scheduled to launch in the first quarter of Hitachi’s fiscal year, starting in April 2024. This certified NVIDIA DGX BasePOD solution will include NVIDIA DGX Enterprise software systems, offering state-of-the-art AI architecture to handle complex AI workloads.

Charlie Boyle, vice president of DGX Platforms at NVIDIA explained that companies in all industries are establishing AI centers for data intelligence. With Hitachi Vantara solutions based on NVIDIA DGX software and infrastructure, customers will be able to establish AI centers of excellence and advance their generative AI strategies
