New Capabilities of Hitachi Content Platform and Hitachi Data Ingestor Support Massive Scalability and Improve Operational Efficiencies
SANTA CLARA, CA, Apr 24, 2012 –/BackupReview.info/– Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (HIT), (tokyo:6501), today announced significant new enhancements to its award-winning object store, Hitachi Content Platform (HCP), and its bottomless, backup-free cloud on-ramp, Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI). These new enhancements reduce overall costs by enabling organizations to better manage unstructured data growth, ensure content security in shared storage environments and reduce the complexity and inefficiency in traditional, cloud computing and distributed IT environments.
“Organizations are looking for new, innovative approaches to deal with the expansive growth of unstructured content and extract the full value of their data,” said Miklos Sandorfi, chief strategist, Hitachi Data Systems. “Our content cloud approach allows organizations to store billions of data objects and use intelligence layers to index and search the data independently of the application that created it. The data is available across devices, anytime and anywhere. By deploying HCP and HDI, customers will cut costs in managing, storing and accessing data and build a foundation for the information cloud.”
About the new Hitachi Content Platform and Hitachi Data Ingestor
Content can be distributed to HDI and “pinned” to the remote location, ensuring local access performance to a consistent set of data and reducing bandwidth consumption and costs. In addition, HDI offers high availability configurations to ensure continuous operation for service provider customers or remote and branch offices in distributed, private IT environments. Together, HCP and HDI help organizations and cloud service providers lower costs and complexities associated with storing large and rapidly growing volumes of unstructured data, while enabling fluid content with fast access and data life cycle management. New features and customer benefits include:
Improved Operational Efficiency to Lower Costs
Greater Scalability and Reliability
Robust Security and Control from Edge and Core
* CSC: “Customer files are being created in disparate locations all over the enterprise, and this information must be made meaningful and be protected. CSC’s Bottomless File Storage, powered by HCP and HDI, provides companies with a cost effective way to ingest these files into the data center, where data can be maintained according to its value, distributed to the resources that can make decisions based on it, secured against unauthorized use and grow with no limits in a sustainable fashion. With the help of HDI and HCP, our customers can reduce IT costs and complexity by eliminating backups and dependence on local storage and enjoy a truly backup-free and bottomless cloud environment.” — James Burke, executive, Platform and Storage Services
* Rocket Arkivio: “We are excited about our important role in the new object storage solution release from Hitachi Data Systems. Our Rocket Arkivio software helps customers optimize key benefits of HCP, including greater scalability and expanded operational efficiencies that help HDS customers around the world improve their efficiency and reduce storage costs.” — Giovanni Paliska, managing director
About Hitachi Content Platform and Hitachi Data Ingestor
The Hitachi Content Platform and Hitachi Data Ingestor enhancements are a new milestone in the Hitachi Data Systems 3-tiered strategy of infrastructure cloud, content cloud and information cloud. The strategy builds on existing IT investments to provide a single virtualization platform for all data. When content is untethered from the applications that created it, data is easier to find, share and repurpose, and is consequently more valuable. Working together, HCP and HDI provide application independence and intelligent lifecycle management capabilities that are key to achieving a content cloud that gives businesses control of their unstructured data with seamless access, search, retention, consolidation and archiving capabilities.
