Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501) has announced its intent to acquire REAN Cloud LLC.
This acquisition will reinforce Hitachi Vantara’s ability to accelerate secure enterprise cloud adoption across multicloud environments and strengthen its ability to manage and operate traditional applications as well as emerging workloads in artificial intelligence and machine learning, the company said.
“Our global customers across the Hitachi, Ltd., ecosystem are driving their own digital transformations to create competitive advantages in the marketplace,” said Brian Householder, chief executive officer of Hitachi Vantara. “Modernized infrastructure running both on and off premises and intelligent data governance and analytics are the foundational pillars of digital transformations. REAN Cloud powerfully extends Hitachi Ltd.’s existing portfolio for customers and partners in these areas.”
“Enterprises today want the ultimate flexibility in selecting the right environment for their varied workloads and development requirements. Moving and managing data and applications across environments requires careful orchestration through a unified cloud platform,” said Bobby Soni, chief solutions and services officer of Hitachi Vantara. “Hitachi Vantara already offers trusted and reliable private cloud solutions for customers who want pay-as-you-go experiences without having to move their data off premises. With REAN Cloud, we will be able to extend our unified cloud offerings to public and hybrid clouds, and we will enable customers to accelerate their digital transformations by deploying analytics-centric solutions to drive business outcomes.”
“When we first founded REAN Cloud, we understood the pivotal role that the cloud would play in transforming the way enterprises do business to reach their goals faster,” said Sri Vasireddy, managing partner of REAN Cloud. “As cloud adoption continues its rapid growth worldwide, we are truly excited to join forces with Hitachi Vantara, which shares our focus on shaping the future of digital transformation with innovative solutions. Our team looks forward to evolving REAN Cloud’s platform to accelerate customers’ outcome-based offerings.”
The transaction is expected to close later this year, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals. Financial terms of the deal are not being disclosed.
