Extending the Reach of Mobile and Cloud in the Enterprise

by Hu Yoshida on Jan 23, 2015

Most enterprises today, view mobility as a strategic initiative that will increase productivity and efficiency, enrich their business process and enable them to compete in a fast changing world. Mobility is closely tied to cloud. Mobility and cloud have replaced the old, rigid, client server paradigm and opened up a world of new possibilities. Wireless email, calendaring, and contact have become ubiquitous in most enterprises.  While these enterprise applications can be securely managed in a mobile environment, there are a number of other enterprise applications that could benefit from cloud and mobile if they could overcome some inhibitors to adoption like lack of security controls and legacy systems. The Hitachi Content Portfolio announcements are intended to extend the reach of mobile and cloud in the enterprise and address some of these inhibitors.

The Growth of Object Storage in 2014

by Hu Yoshida on Jan 14, 2015

2014 was a year in which there was an increased focus on object storage. Our object storage platform, Hitachi Content Platform (HCP),is part of a tightly integrated  portfolio of HCP (object-based cloud storage), HCP Anywhere (enterprise file sync and share), and the Hitachi Data Ingestor (cloud file gateway). This portfolio saw a tremendous amount of growth as we made some major announcements around mobility and cloud connectivity with HCP. In this post I will summarize how the Object storage market was viewed at the beginning of the year with Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for Object Storage report, which was published in February of 2014, and how it looked at the end of the year with IDC’s MarketScape on Object-based Storage platforms and systems (OBS) (IDC Document #253055) which was published in December of 2014. I will also summarize what improvements we made in our object storage portfolio in 2014.

by Hu Yoshida on Jan 5, 2015
