S Series objects

Content Platform S Series Node Help

Part Number

An HCP S Series Node stores objects. An S Series object is a combination of:

  • An exact digital reproduction of data as it existed before it was stored on the S Series Node.
  • Information that describes the object (for example, the data size and the object creation date). This information is called metadata.

When data is written to an S Series Node, the S Series Node creates an object from that data.

S Series objects are not the same as HCP objects, and the two types of objects do not have a one-to-one correspondence with each other. Each HCP object tiered to an S Series Node can result in multiple objects on the S Series Node.
