Hitachi updates HCP with cloud tiering

By

A new release of Hitachi Data Systems' Hitachi Content Platform includes the ability to store data in public clouds while staying in control.

New features in the latest update to the Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) include a mechanism for automatically moving data to or from Google, Amazon and Microsoft cloud storage in response to changes in demand or policies.

The benefits are said to include the ability to balance security and cost.

The new release also includes updates to HCP Anywhere (HDS's enterprise-grade, on-premises file sharing and synchronisation software, providing seamless access from mobile devices or across multiple locations) and Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI; an elastic storage solution for distributed users and cloud consumers that can take the place of Windows Servers or NAS devices, storing the data on centrally managed arrays for robustness with local copies of frequently used files for performance).

Local users include IT service provider Oper8 (recently appointed as a channel partner by unified communications vendor Interactive Intelligence) and the Garvan Institute of Medical Research.

"At Oper8, technology is used to solve business problems and gain competitive advantage," said COO Mark Owen. "Having constant, on-the-go access to important data is critical to making our business run fast and more efficiently, while extending the capability through our HCP-powered cloud storage solutions to the Asia Pacific marketplace.

"By making it easy for our clients to transition to the cloud, we can enable seamless access to data across any device, at any time and any place to support important business decisions."

The Garvan Institute's chief of informatics Warren Kaplan said "Garvan seeks to lead the delivery of personalised genome medicine in Australia. Hitachi Content Platform plays a crucial part in helping us transform medicine in this country.

"We're not only ensuring security while remaining mobile, but also offering data visibility and collaboration capability to our research community across our organisation."
