Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., today announced new capabilities in its Hitachi Content Platform portfolio.
HDS introduced the new Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) S10, which the company said extends the existing HDS hybrid architecture by adding another low cost tier. The company also updated Hitachi Data Ingestor and HCP Anywhere, which it said will enable secure and unified mobile access to both cloud and enterprise data.
The portfolio, it said in a release, allows organizations to transform to a cloud, mobile, open source and service-driven IT environment, while protecting their existing investments.
“With the growing adoption of both private and public cloud and the transformation of traditional architectures to open source, cloud and mobile, organizations are grappling with how to bring their existing investments forward into this increasingly mobilized world,” it said.
S10 contains offerings for private and hybrid cloud, Openstack, elastic scale backup-free cloud gateways, file sync and share, and mobile access to enterprise NAS file shares from a single architecture.
Updates to Hitachi Data Ingestor enable “simplicity of management” for file services in remote or branch offices or at storage service providers’ customer sites. They are designed to “help free IT” from the burdens of traditional file servers and move to right-sized, simplified, optimized cloud gateways.”
Meanwhile, Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere provides mobile access to data in existing NAS systems, so users have secure access to cloud and enterprise data from anywhere, on any device, at any time, HDS said.
