Hitachi, IBM to collaborate in mainframes in the cloud era

Once popular hardware is losing traction as companies shift to cloud services

TOKYO -- Hitachi will supply IBM-made mainframe computers loaded with its own operating systems starting in fiscal 2018, beating a retreat from hardware development in the age of cloud servers.

The arrangement was announced Tuesday. Hitachi will continue developing operating systems for mainframe machines. New products will offer improved compatibility with Hitachi's "internet of things" platform Lumada.
