Hitachi Content Platform

The Data Platform from Hitachi is called the Hitachi Content Platform and is available from System Management Services Sdn Bhd. The diagram below shows the central role of the platform to give both control and visibility across all data.

HCP is an object-storage software solution that consolidates unstructured data currently held in various silos onto a single cloud storage platform to deliver compliance-level data protection and centralized management using a best-in-class metadata architecture.

It enables users to control the mobility of their data, have visibility and gain insights into their data in order to extract value for data-driven decisions and actions, such as competitive advantage, faster time to market, improved efficiency and lower operational costs.

Features and Benefits

HCP lets IT Departments store, share, protect, preserve and analyze data in an efficient and easy-to-use manner, enabling routine day-to-day tasks, such as governance and protection to be fully automated, simplifying regulatory compliance, encryption, retention policies, and storage management across both cloud and on-prem environments.

Given the exponential growth of data, proper data management, protection and analysis have become essential disciplines to thrive in a data-driven world. HCP is making these tasks much easier by giving users total visibility and access to their data across all data sources, eliminating the siloed approach and providing massive scale, multiple storage tiers, with broad protocol support, multi-tenancy and configurable attributes for each tenant.

“The platform can handle all kinds of data and almost any application. It offers high reliability, massive scale, seamless data mobility and storage across private clouds and public cloud services, encryption, access control, easy provisioning, chargeback measurement and more. The HCP G series access nodes allow organizations greater flexibility to support mixed workloads with varying performance and scale requirements. These nodes virtualize capacity from Hitachi Content Platform S series nodes, local drives, Fibre Channel storage arrays, NFS shares and leading public cloud providers. HCP drastically reduces total cost of ownership and provides cost-effective storage with geographically dispersed erasure coding data protection for content that must remain behind the firewall. Such attributes enable IT to take advantage of cloud and deliver a whole new range of IT services, without compromising security and control of information.” (from HCP Data Sheet)
