Enterprise-Class, Backup-Free Cloud and Archive

Proliferation of unstructured data, applications and data variations continues to accelerate. With the limitations of traditional file storage systems, these trends increase server and storage sprawl, with numerous infrastructure silos that support different workloads.Hitachi Content Platform is an object storage solution that allows IT organizations and cloud service providers to store, share, synchronize, protect, preserve, analyze and retrieve file data from a single system. The system is more efficient, easier to use, and handles much more data than traditional file storage solutions. Content Platform automates day-to-day IT operations such as data protection and readily evolves to changes in scale, scope, applications, and storage and server technologies over the life of data. In IT environments where data grows quickly or must remain for years, these capabilities are invaluable.

  • Active data protection and a reliable, utility-grade architecture for backup free storage that is easy to set up, manage and adapt.
  • High-density, high-efficiency storage, with multitenancy, support for multiple protocols and scalability from a few terabytes to tens of petabytes.
  • Unique metadata gathering and intelligence tools bring structure to unstructured file data to enable intelligent automation and facilitate deeper analysis of data.
  • Safe, secure file synchronization and sharing with Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere and integration with Hitachi Data Ingestor to connect remote and branch offices.
