Services perform functions essential to the health and function of the Hitachi Content Platform for cloud scale (HCP for cloud scale) system. The System Management application enables management of services.

For example, the S3 Gateway service serves S3 API methods and communicates with storage components, while the Watchdog service ensures that other services remain running.

Services provide cluster management and coordination, metadata coordination and caching, and external gateways.

Internally, services run in Docker containers on the instances of the system. The container orchestration framework supports cloud or on-premise deployment.

HCP for cloud scale is designed around an adaptive service deployment model that changes based on workload.

The starting point for storage component management is the Dashboard page of the System Management application. The procedures in this module begin at this page.
