Introduction to Hitachi Content


Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is a robust storage system designed to support large, growing repositories of fixed-content data. HCP stores objects that include both data and metadata that describes that data.

Objects exist in buckets, which are logical partitions of the repository.

HCP provides access to the repository through a variety of

industry-standard protocols, as well as through various HCP-specific interfaces. One of these interfaces is the HCP HS3 API — a RESTful, HTTP-based API that is compatible with Amazon S3.

This chapter introduces basic HCP concepts and includes information on what you can do with the HCP HS3 API.
