Hitachi Data Systems and Verizon to develop SD storage solution

Hitachi Data Systems and Verizon Enterprise Solutions will develop a software-defined storage solution based on Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) and Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere (HCP Anywhere) for the new Verizon Cloud.

In a statement, Hitachi Data Systems said HCP and HCP Anywhere are the latest enterprise-class technologies to be added to the Verizon Cloud, offering tools that enterprises can use to move their businesses forward as cloud-based services.

John Considine, chief technology officer of Verizon Terremark, said: “As more enterprises embrace the cloud, businesses both large and small will look to virtualization for greater functionality to enhance business operations.”

HCP is a multipurpose distributed object storage system designed to support large-scale repositories of unstructured data. HCP enables IT organizations and cloud service providers to store, protect, preserve and retrieve unstructured data with a single storage platform.

It supports multiple levels of service and easily evolves with technology and scale changes. With an array of data protection and content preservation technologies, the system can significantly reduce or even eliminate tape-based self-backups or backups of data at remote sites or on mobile devices connected to the platform.

John Mansfield, executive vice president, global solutions strategy and development, Hitachi Data Systems, said: “File sharing is a key part of every business and HCP Anywhere solves the problems of complexity, security, and data migration for the enterprise.”

HCP Anywhere offers enterprises a secure, easy-to-use file synchronization and sharing tool. Users sync data on multiple devices and share content without the pains of emailing attachments. With HCP Anywhere, IT can offer a flexible, cloud-based solution while maintaining control of enterprise data.
