Overall Satisfaction with Hitatchi Content Platform

We use it mainly for EV (enterprise vault) use case. It is used across whole organization.
We recently started using it for other use cases, where users require WORM retention. This is only for users requiring WORM storage.
  • HCP/HDI interface works like charm. it's easy to deploy and scale.
  • Hitachi customer support is at par with expectations
  • More cost effective than EMC/NetApp solutions.
  • Initial setup might be tougher than other products. Better to have HDS expert with you.
  • Performance is always the issue. Make sure that users are aware that this is for tier-2/tier-3 applications.
  • Positive returns on this investment. No regrets at all.
  • Users are happy that they are getting less chargeback for their storage.
  • migration was smooth from NetApp to HCP.
My company has close ties with Hitachi. NetApp chargeback was more per Gig and for cost saving purposes, we had to choose HCP.
Best for cases where performance is not an issue.
