BANGALORE, INDIA: Hitachi Data Systems Corp. (HDS) introduced enhancements to Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI), a bottomless, backup-free cloud on-ramp and filer, to help organizations simplify and accelerate cloud adoption.
Featuring new content sharing, file restore and NAS migration capabilities, the new version of HDI gives seamlessly scalable, backup-free storage solutions to distributed consumers of IT, such as remote offices and branch offices (ROBO) or cloud storage users. Working in conjunction with Hitachi Content Platform (HCP), a virtualized object store with advanced storage and data management capabilities, HDI is deployed as a minimal-footprint or virtual appliance that sends data from the edge to the core infrastructure to easily and cost-effectively help customers move data to the cloud at their own pace.
Organizations look for ways to reduce the costs, complexities and risks associated with today’s aggressive growth of unstructured data, particularly when providing IT services to geographically disperse locations or cloud consumers. Together, HDI and HCP are an integrated edge-to-core solution with seamless, bottomless scalability and backup-free storage. The combination greatly reduces the cost and complexity of providing IT services to distributed environments such as remote or branch offices, organizations building an internal private cloud, or service providers creating a standard on-ramp for cloud adoption.
