HdS and Hitachi's amicable divorce

HdS and Hitachi's amicable divorce

After three years together Hosting and Datacentre Services (HdS) and Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) are parting ways – sort of.

HdS has purchased the remaining 49% of Hitachi’s shares, making it a fully owned New Zealand operation, although it will continue as a reseller.

Wayne Norrie, HdS CEO, describes the new situation as pure win-win for both parties.

“Now Hitachi has the freedom to reach different parts of the market and HdS can focus 100% on its value added services,” he says.

Meanwhile Ross Harper, Hitachi director strategic alliances, says HdS has signed as a platinum partner – the first as his company rolls its partner programme into New Zealand.

Harper says his first priority is to appoint a country manager and pre-sales technician, before finding a suitable distribution partner.
