Overview

Modernize Your File Services

File-based data represents about 80% of capacity demand in a typical IT infrastructure. Most of that data resides in Windows/NFS file servers and NAS appliances. These CIFS/NFS architectures are difficult to manage and protect, and cannot support the next generation of cloud-based applications.

These file-serving problems are the catalyst to modernize your architecture to use 40-50% less physical capacity to store your data, with no need for traditional backup. This happens in an easily managed environment that supports cloud applications.

  • An integrated cloud gateway for Hitachi Content Platform.
  • Automated migration from existing NAS environments.
  • Backup-free data protection and reliable content governance.
  • Integration with Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere gives users mobile access to their NAS data.
  • Ideal for private organizations with remote and branch offices, as well as cloud service providers.
