1.1 Summary

Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is a distributed storage system designed to support large, growing repositories of fixed-content data. HCP stores objects that include both data and metadata. It distributes these objects across the storage space but still presents them as files in a standard directory structure. HCP provides access to stored objects through the HTTP protocol, as well as through an integrated search facility.

This document provides Hitachi solution consultants, partners, and integrators with a step-by-step guide on working with the HCP REST API and is applicable to HCP version 3.0 or later.
