Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) Singapore Partners with AvePoint to Provide Robust SharePoint Storage Management and Efficiency
Partnership combines AvePoint’s SharePoint storage management and archiving solutions with Hitachi Content Platform to enhance SharePoint efficiency
Singapore — January 17, 2017 — Hitachi Data Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE:6501), today announced a local strategic partnership with AvePoint, the Microsoft Cloud expert. This partnership will help Singaporean customers reduce total cost of ownership, backup time, and input/output operations per second (IOPS) requirements for Microsoft SharePoint. DocAve Storage Manager optimizes SharePoint storage by transferring unstructured data from Microsoft SQL Servers to Hitachi Content Platform, and DocAve Archiver applies intelligent lifecycle management to data in order to fulfil requirements around information retention when audited.
“Storage costs for collaboration platforms like SharePoint can become a massive burden for some organisations,” said Joe Ong, Managing Director, Hitachi Data Systems, Singapore and Vietnam (pictured above). “Our partnership with AvePoint helps customers efficiently offload data to our platform and manage it in a more cost-efficient manner.
“Despite the overwhelming benefits around team collaboration and document management that SharePoint provides, Singaporean organisations are still facing challenges around cost efficiency, as well as auditing and compliance,” said Tianyi Jiang, AvePoint Co-CEO and Co-Founder. “This partnership between AvePoint and Hitachi Data Systems allows more organisations to realise these benefits without being held back by cost of ownership and lack of robust capabilities for data retention in order to stay in compliance with industry and government regulations.”
To establish lifecycle management capabilities, AvePoint and Hitachi Data Systems work together through the following products:
Hitachi Content Platform enables organizations to properly manage, govern, protect and share data so that they can improve productivity, gain efficiency and further their transformation of IT.
DocAve Archiver, part of the award-winning DocAve Software Platform, enables true enterprise content lifecycle management by helping organisations reduce SharePoint storage costs, improve performance, and enhance compliance with records and information management policies.
DocAve Storage Manager, also a part of the DocAve Software Platform, effectively mitigates the negative consequences of exponential content growth by implementing and enforcing BLOB externalisation strategies throughout SharePoint’s lifecycle.
