"Hitachi Is Coming at the NAS Market Strong and Hard," Says CEO
Hitachi Launches "Product Assault" On NAS Market

"The industry needs to be aware: Hitachi is coming at the NAS market strong and hard," said Shinjiro Iwata, CEO, Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), as his company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., this morning announced a full-scale product assault on the network attached storage (NAS) market, signaling the introduction of multiple new NAS products spanning the high-end enterprise to the SMB markets.

"Hitachi, Ltd., HDS' parent company, is focusing vast resources on taking market share in the NAS market, and has designed an impressive set of products which it plans to unveil in 2005," Iwata continued. "By leveraging the technologies introduced with the revolutionary TagmaStore Universal Storage Platform, these products will incorporate business-enabling features and functions that simply do not exist in the current NAS industry landscape."

The aggressive NAS product rollout in 2005 with the introduction of next generation embedded NAS Blades for the TagmaStore Universal Storage Platform - products which, at introduction, will sell for one-third of the price of comparable NAS gateways and filers, Hitachi says.

With the newly introduced NAS Blades, Hitachi will focus on capturing new NAS gateway and filer sales opportunities, and consolidating all existing NAS gateways and filers in an enterprise environment.

Just one NAS Blade, according to Hitachi, "enables consolidation of multiple NAS filers and large NAS workloads, and reduces the cost and headaches of procuring and managing dozens of islands of file servers or NAS filer appliances."

As leading market research firm IDC currently forecasts the NAS market to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.7%, reaching $3.089B by 2008; the price/performance metrics of Hitachi's new NAS Blade alone represent a significant opportunity for the company to aggressively take market share from other NAS vendors.

Following the introduction of embedded NAS Blades in its high-end systems, Hitachi says its strategy will be to introduce a series of channel-optimized midrange NAS offerings targeting the fast-growing Windows and Linux-based SMB markets.
