Hitachi Data Systems is no more! Arise the new 'Hitachi Vantara'

Silver badge

Vantara means "ages" or "eons" in Hindi, most commonly as "mana-vantara" (ages of Manu) which is about 4.3 million years. Hopefully this mirrors their intentions regarding company stability rather than product delivery schedules.

Sounds like a particularly naff and bland Vauxhall.

You're right, but it still sounds a whole lot better than "Pentaho", doesn't it? I suppose that company's employees are grateful that it's a "p" not an "r". Seriously, WTF were they thinking?

And everybody at Vantara might be deeply unimpressed with brands like "Ledswinger" and "Mr Dogshit", much as I approve of them.

Failed

If you have to explain what a logo or name is supposed to convey then you have completely failed. If it is not pretty obvious from the outset it is meaningless/useless/a waste of money.
