Hitachi Data Systems has been a regular attendee at the Storage Vision Conference, the premier event focusing on digital storage and the entertainment content value chain, which takes place annually in Las Vegas, Nevada in early January.
The attendees this year were myself, Jeff Greenwald and Jay Yogeshwar representing Solutions Marketing & Alliances teams.
This year marked the Fourteenth Annual Storage Visions Conference during which awards were presented at a reception at the end of the first day of the show at the Riviera Hotel Convention Center.
There are multiple award categories and in the visionary company awards section HDS was the winner for the Media and Entertainment Storage Company for our Unified Storage VM enabling effective trade-offs of cost and performance.
Two of our customers also were given end user awards:
Fox Networks Media Services in Culver City and HBO Asia won the Visionary Content Storage Application award for providing accelerated editorial, rendering, and transcoding workflows using HDS technology.
