Hitachi and Hitachi Data Systems Corporation Deliver Virtualization Support for SAP HANA(R) Platform

Hitachi and Hitachi Data Systems Corporation announced release of the Hitachi LPAR (logical partitioning) technology on x86 servers for the SAP HANA(R) platform. Customers can now deploy secure, LPAR-virtualized environments running SAP HANA on-premises and in the cloud, as well as in hybrid cloud environments. With an increasing number of SAP(R) partners, including Cloud Service Providers, looking to accelerate cloud adoption with SAP HANA, SAP HANA on Hitachi LPAR offers an efficient method to help maximize consolidation without sacrificing performance. SAP HANA on Hitachi LPAR for production use is available in controlled availability for select customers only. Customers looking to move their SAP HANA-based environments into the cloud can benefit from the speed and agility provided by Hitachi LPAR technology. Hitachi LPAR provides server virtualization at the firmware level with very low performance overhead. Server hardware resources are divided into multiple partitions, which appear as independent 'bare metal' servers that result in increased utilization and reduced costs. With the ability to logically partition the server, multiple SAP HANA-based workloads can run on a single system with minimal impact to application performance. The power of SAP HANA complemented by support from Hitachi LPAR will help dramatically reduce cost of deployment through consolidation, reduce hardware costs, simplify infrastructure and result in faster time to value.

Finmeccanica Shortlists Two For Rail Assets

Finmeccanica SpA (BIT:FNC) has shortlisted two bidders for the rail assets it has put up for sale to cut debt and focus on its core aerospace and defense businesses, Chief Executive Officer Mauro Moretti said. Moretti said on the sidelines of an event in Rome that Finmeccanica, which is being advised by UBS and Mediobanca, will pick the winning bidder by the end of October 2014, or early in November 2014. He did not disclose any names. Finmeccanica put its cash-burning train unit AnsaldoBreda S.p.A. and its stake in Ansaldo STS SpA (BIT:STS) on sale more than three years ago but political meddling and a corruption scandal has delayed the process. Japanese newspaper Nikkei reported earlier this month that industrial giant Hitachi Ltd. (TSE:6501) and China CNR Corporation Limited (SHSE:601299) were the two finalists.

Hitachi Opens European Nuclear Research Centre

Hitachi Ltd. announced that it will open a new R&D base in the UK - the European Nuclear Research Centre (ENRC) - on September 30, 2014. The Centre will not only coordinate Hitachi's nuclear research activities in Europe formed by a core team, but also provide additional resources to facilitate the development of safe and efficient nuclear power technologies based on advanced plant maintenance technology and proven decommissioning techniques in Europe. Through the ENRC, Hitachi will be conducting joint research with UK and European universities to bring together the leading technologies developed in Europe and Hitachi's BWR (Boiling Water Reactor) technology, to develop even safer and more efficient nuclear power technologies, including technology to reduce the level of radiation exposure to plant personnel, and technology to raise plant utilization. Hitachi will also be undertaking R&D for medium to long-term issues such as reducing the volume of waste and lowering the cost of decommissioning.
