HDS Enhances Platform

HANOVER, Germany -- Building on its success and momentum in the active archive market, Hitachi today announced several industry-leading enhancements to its 21st century digital archiving solution, the Hitachi Content Archive Platform. The enhanced Hitachi Content Archive Platform is an integral component of the Hitachi Services Oriented Storage Solutions strategy and features new authentication services to ensure the secure, long-term preservation and retrieval of valuable information. Amid growing customer demand for a first class active archive solution, the Hitachi Content Archive Platform has gained strong momentum in the market, deployed across hundreds of customer sites with Hitachis rapidly expanding ecosystem of independent software vendor (ISV) partners.

With simple integration via open, standards-based interfaces like CIFS, NFS, and HTTP, and an active archive storage layer that supports partner and customer data retention policies, the Hitachi Content Archive Platform has built a growing network of ISV partners which include some of the world’s leading technology vendors. When combined with the Hitachi Content Archive Platform, these solutions allow customers to meet their current e-mail, file, and ECM/ERM archiving requirements, and allowing scalability for the future. This rapidly growing partner ecosystem has fueled Hitachi Content Archive deployments across hundreds of the most demanding customer sites around the world, across a wide range of industries, including financial services, insurance, telecommunications and government.

“The unprecedented partner and customer demand that we have experienced for the Hitachi Content Archive Platform is a direct reflection of the surge in unstructured data and the increasing need for high performance, massively scalable storage solutions that are capable of finding the equivalent of a needle in a haystack in record time,” said Michael Hay, senior director, Product Strategy, Hitachi Data Systems. “Despite the exponential growth in data across all industries, businesses today are expected to transform both structured and unstructured data spread across their enterprise into business intelligence and actionable information upon a single request. The new features and flexibility of the Hitachi Content Archive Platform deliver the speed, authentication, security and scalability organizations need to manage constant change and prepare for a future of unhindered data expansion.”
