HDS extends HCP capacity, performance and features


Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) has announced multiple updates for its Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) products.

The HCP portfolio includes Hitachi Content Platform for software-defined object storage; HCP Anywhere for file synchronisation and sharing and data protection capabilities; Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI), an elastic-scale cloud file gateway; and Hitachi Content Intelligence for extracting insights from data.

The updated HCP allows four times as much usable storage per cluster, a 67% increase in storage node capacity through the use of 10TB drives, and a 55% increase in the number of objects per node. Transfers to and from Amazon cloud storage have been accelerated, enhanced APIs provide greater visibility of storage performance and health, and the KVM hypervisor is now supported.

In addition, software licensing has been simplified, and a dedicated management port has been added to segregate administrative and user traffic, HDS announced.

"Once again, we've raised the bar for object storage with our uniquely integrated Hitachi Content Platform portfolio," said HDS chief technology officer of cloud and mobility Peter Sjoberg.

"Hitachi Content Platform provides the ideal ecosystem to support customers' existing content-centric applications and newer cloud use cases and workloads simultaneously.

"It also provides a central way for customers to securely incorporate hybrid cloud storage on their terms to react faster to change and to optimise costs."
