Hitachi Content Platform Portfolio Transforms Cloud Infrastructure to Improve TCO
Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., is making major updates to the Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) portfolio. The goal is to provide a path to digital transformation for enterprises while achieving cost savings over public cloud.
The integrated portfolio offers the capability to increase profitability and productivity through cloud economics and by applying analytics to uncover new opportunities and insights. It can also reduce risk by enhancing security, availability and data protection, according to HDS.
With this release, HDS says, the HCP portfolio gains a 400% increase in usable storage per cluster, 67% more storage node capacity via 10TB drives, a 55% increase in objects per node and simplified software licensing so customers can achieve over 5x lower storage costs than public cloud, which leads to more than 60% TCO savings than public cloud for enterprise use cases.
HCP provides an ecosystem to support customers' existing content-centric applications and newer cloud use cases and workloads simultaneously, and also provides a central way for customers to securely incorporate hybrid cloud storage on their terms to react faster to change and to optimize costs, said Peter Sjoberg, CTO, Cloud and Mobility, HDS.
The HCP portfolio is an end-to-end solution that helps to eliminate silos; promote collaboration; enables governance and compliance; provide safeguards for sensitive data; automates management in private, hybrid and multi-cloud environments; and surface insights through search and analytics.
The HCP portfolio includes Hitachi Content Platform for software-defined object storage; HCP Anywhere for file synchronization and sharing and data protection capabilities; Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI), an elastic-scale cloud file gateway; and Hitachi Content Intelligence, where insights emerge from your data.
