Catch the Train of Innovation: Hitachi Kakushin Event Reloaded, Febr 22, 2016

About the Kakushin Event

The storage industry has become a convergence zone for many of computing’s major disruptive shifts:

  • From physical to virtual
  • From traditional IT to cloud IT
  • From siloed data to Big Data and mobility
  • From rotating storage media to solid state
  • From proprietary, hardware-centric solutions to software defined storage on commodity and open source


During the Hitachi Kakushin Event on Febr 22,2016, many aspects of this transformation journey, concerning every company and organization today, were adressed. Knowledge on data management innovations was shared.
