Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere Named Finalist In Enterprise Storage System Software: 2015 Products of the Year

Leading Enterprise File Sync and Share Solution Honored for New Capabilities

SANTA CLARA, CA (January 26, 2016) — Hitachi Data Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., announced today that TechTarget, a global, integrated media company, has named Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere file sync and share solution as a finalist in the 2015 Products of the Year enterprise storage system software category presented by Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com. Most recently, HCP Anywhere received the TMC 2015 Cloud Computing Excellence Award and the 2014-2015 Cloud Award for Best in Mobile Solutions category.

Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) Anywhere has been gaining notoriety for its new capabilities, such as mobile and browser access to data stored in any NAS device and support for Microsoft® technologies such as Windows Phone®, Outlook® integration, Volume Shadow Copy Service and Active Directory®.

HCP Anywhere is part of the Hitachi Content Platform portfolio, which is the only integrated solution that brings together object storage, file sync and share and file gateways to create truly secure, simple and smart cloud storage solutions. It sets itself apart from competitors for its distinct ability to integrate links automatically into emails instead of sending attachments. The portfolio consists of Hitachi Content Platform, Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere, and Hitachi Data Ingestor. With the HCP portfolio, IT organizations and cloud service providers can easily store, share, synchronize, protect, preserve, analyze and retrieve file data from a single system. This consolidation makes it easier for IT to manage the volume and variety of data by using policies to automate operations such as data protection and tiering. As a result, compression, deduplication, erasure coding and hybrid cloud support make storage efficient and cost-effective. The consolidated system also offers a much faster time to value for customers, and time to market for service providers by eliminating the hassles of do-it-yourself integration. No object storage solution in the industry rivals the broad feature set and depth of integration that Hitachi Data Systems offers.

"We are honored to be chosen as a finalist for TechTarget's Enterprise Storage System Software: 2015 Products of the Year," said Peter Sjoberg, chief technology officer (CTO), Cloud and Mobility, Hitachi Data Systems. "Our passion for secure, enterprise mobility drives our commitment to provide unsurpassed cloud storage for today's workforce. We look forward to continually enhancing the HCP portfolio through innovation."
