At our event in San Francisco today, we unveiled our strategy for transforming the data center and introduced new solutions to manage the increasing volume, velocity, variety and longevity of data.
Data: Currency of the new economy
Because we believe data is the currency of the new economy and the ability to extract value from this data is the ultimate competitive edge, we design our technology and innovative solutions to help our partners and their users harness the power of all of this data.
The interesting thing about data is that the more we use it, the more valuable it becomes. We gain more knowledge, more associations, more correlations, more insights and more wisdom – making data a unique asset.
In fact, research shows that the value of data has a measurable impact on the organizations that leverage it. According to the Harvard Business Review, companies that make data driven decisions are 5% more productive and 6% more profitable than those that don’t.
Storage: The heart of the data center
It’s that value that is creating the need to preserve more and more data for longer periods of time. Infrastructures must be faster, more elastic, more accessible and more affordable. Storing, retaining, accessing and transforming this massive volume of data has put storage at the heart of the data center.
Heritage and expertise deliver dynamic solutions
With our rich heritage of leadership, deep expertise in the device space and the insights we have gleaned from strategic customer relationships, HGST is well positioned to identify and seize the opportunities to drive new waves of innovation and transform the way the world stores and uses data.
The news we shared today is just a preview of HGST’S innovations to address the next-generation data center requirements – improving efficiency and reliability, enabling faster access to higher volumes of data – so our customers can extract greater value from the information data holds.
