The Hybrid Cloud-Storage Solution for Content Mobility

  • Enable content mobility for workers between offices and among leading cloud storage services.
  • Deploy, manage and adapt to change with ease.
  • Automate and improve efficiency of archive, backup and cloud storage operations.
Overview

Cloud Mobility and Archive

Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) supports the shift toward business-defined IT, a model in which business leaders are more involved in IT strategy and purchasing, and IT is driven more by business—not just technical—goals. HCP is an object storage solution that allows IT organizations and cloud service providers to store, share, synchronize, protect, preserve, analyze and retrieve file data in a single system. With HCP, you have the freedom to move data to your choice of public clouds automatically, based on policy, and still retain control and visibility at all times because the metadata is securely stored on site. The system is more efficient, easier to use, and handles much more data than traditional file storage solutions. HCP automates day-to-day IT operations, such as data protection, and readily evolves with 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.

  • The core of an integrated solution portfolio to build private, public and hybrid clouds.
  • Safe, secure file synchronization and sharing with Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere and integration with Hitachi Data Ingestor to connect remote and branch offices.
  • Active data protection and a reliable, utility-grade architecture for compliant, 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.
