Overall Satisfaction with Hitachi Content Platform (HCP)

[Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is used the following ways:]
  • Multi-tenant large scale object store for objects that are stored, searched and accessed by application via enriched meta data and indexing
  • Immutable backup target for short term protection of auxiliary copy of backups for ransomware protection
  • Long term archiving target
  • Replication between sites for DR capabilities
  • Compliance retention of other objects
  • Document Imaging store
  • Site to site replication
  • Enforced compliance mode and retention
  • Object level retention capabilities
  • True multi-tenant support
  • Namespace partitioning and permissions
  • 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
  • Object level permission model
  • Absolute immutability for retention period
  • Multi-tenancy
  • Best on premise solution of its' kind that encapsulates all our needs
  • ROI has been positive but it does raise questions at renewal time in terms of cost/GB vs other 2nd tier storage types
[Hitachi Content Platform (HCP)] has all of the features of competitive offerings and wraps them in a better multi-tenancy solution. It's object level permission model and non-overridable immutability (in Compliance mode for configured namespaces) is a bump up compared to other solutions. It's offering of it's own API as well as S3 REST support make it very flexible.

Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series, Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery, Commvault HyperScale, vSphere, vRealize Suite, Zerto, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), HPE Synergy, HPE OneView, Microsoft SQL Server, NGINX, Broadcom OneConnect (formerly Emulex OneConnect)
  • [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.
