Hitachi Content Platform (HCP)

Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is an object storage solution that allows IT organizations to store, share, synchronize, protect, preserve, analyze and retrieve file data in a single system. HCP automates day-to-day IT operations, such as data protection. HCP readily evolves with changes in scale, scope, applications, storage and server technologies over the life of data. In medical environments, where data grows quickly and must remain for years, this is an excellent platform for research and collaboration. HCP offers high-efficiency storage, from a small system utilizing a few terabytes to larger systems that can grow to tens of petabytes. Unique metadata gathering and intelligence tools bring structure to unstructured file data to enable intelligent automation and facilitate deeper analysis of images.
