Hitachi Content Platform (HCP)

  • [Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is] well suited for needs requiring a highly secure, multi-tenant on-premise object store.
  • Exceeds expectations with respect to object level attributes and permissions
  • Has excellent S3/HS3 REST API feature set
  • Situations which require versioning and proven Immutability (certified by Governments)
- Expensive to use for general file storage publishing where meta data, compliance, retention, versioning are unnecessary.

Enterprise grade organizations with B2B clientele would be served well by using this product. It alleviates the need for an on-premise storage solution by offering a cloud-based alternative. Smaller organizations with less data capacity needs would be better served with an in-house solution, unless they come out with more reasonable pricing down the road.

Cons

Hitachi Content Platform (HCP)

  • Cost structure is by capacity and is expensive
  • Some access settings are mutually exclusive for performance (REST vs. CIFS)
  • QoS by Tenant requires use of external ADC (Hitachi suggested and sold us Pulse Secure) and their support on this product offering is not up to their normally high standard

It has been a fantastic solution, and now it is so highly integrated into our business, it would be difficult to imagine continuing to without it. It is part of our customer contracts as well, and it saves us from having to invest in the on-premise alternative to provide the required storage capacity.

My company has close ties with Hitachi. NetApp chargeback was more per Gig and for cost saving purposes, we had to choose HCP.

What sets Amplidata apart is the cloud-based storage capability. We’ve realized cost savings due to the fact that we are no longer housing the data on premise, and clients rest assured that they have greater visibility into their data.
