Integrated Edge-to-core Storage Solution
Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI) is an elastic and backup-free cloud on-ramp and filer. HDI with Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is an integrated storage solution that is seamlessly scalable and backup-free for distributed consumers of IT, such as remote offices, branch offices (ROBO) and cloud storage users. Hitachi Data Ingestor provides a standard connection, or on-ramp, into the core data center without requiring application recoding and without changing the way users interact with storage today. Because HDI acts as a caching device, it gives users and applications seemingly endless storage and a host of newly available capabilities. These features reduce management time and cost by eliminating the need to constantly manage capacity, utilization and performance of the system.
