Hitachi Vantara announced it has been placed in the Leaders category of the International Data Corporation (IDC) MarketScape: Worldwide Object-based Storage 2018 Vendor Assessment based on its Hitachi Content Platform solution.
In developing the MarketScape research, IDC analysts evaluated 13 of the most notable object-based storage vendors based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that gauge the success of a supplier in delivering an object-based storage solution in the market.
According to the IDC MarketScape report, “Hitachi Vantara’s biggest strength lies in the company’s vision to remain aligned to market needs through its tightly integrated product portfolio and ecosystem of technology and channel partners. The company remains committed to the HCP portfolio with an aim to double down on the content business through financial funding and hiring skilled engineering and sales staff. Hitachi Vantara has made strides in aligning its HCP portfolio to address new workloads such as data analytics on structured and unstructured data and media streaming across verticals.”
The Hitachi Content Platform portfolio supports advanced data protection techniques such as erasure coding, replication and all RAID levels to support both performance and dense capacity-driven workloads, as well as replicating before tiering.
Hitachi Vantara supports high performance workloads on HCP by populating its performance nodes (G-nodes) entirely with solid state disks (SSDs), which has led to a successful experience for customers with high-performance object storage requirements.
As with the two preceding reports (IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Object-Based Storage Vendor Assessments for 2016 and 2014), the placement of Hitachi Vantara in the Leaders category underscores the success of a strong, sustainable and integrated portfolio, acting as an influential catalyst for digital transformation.
