Updates to HCP v4 include features to improve scalability, manageability, security, compliance, and replication.

The company also unveiled its new Hitachi Data Ingestor, an on-premise appliance for the storage and recovery of CIFS and NFS data on the HCP v4.

The HDI is a new “on ramp” to the Hitachi Content Platform and is integrated with HCP’s massive 40 petabytes (PB) of capacity and new data and storage management capabilities.

Miki Sandorfi, chief strategist, File, Content and Cloud, Hitachi Data Systems, said: “The new Hitachi Data Ingestor and Hitachi Content Platform directly address distributed IT customers’ pressing challenges such as getting data and users into cloud at their own pace by delivering an integrated edge-to-core cloud infrastructure. This enables enterprise organizations and cloud service providers to easily, quickly and cost effectively create a cloud-based service.”

The company claims that HCP reduces the need for silos to store unstructured content. With massive scale, multiple storage tiers, broad interoperability, secure multitenancy and configurable attributes for each tenant, customers can support a wide range of applications on a single cluster.

Hitachi Content Platform v4 eliminates tape-based backups and includes built-in chargeback tools.

It is integrated with the new Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform.
