Storage nodes

Installing an HCP system

Part Number

Storage nodes are the core components of an HCP system. These nodes manage the objects that reside in the system storage. To ensure data integrity and continuous availability if a hardware or software failure occurs, HCP uses RAID technology for its storage and can also be configured to store the data and metadata for each object in multiple locations.

Each storage node runs all the HCP software. The nodes work together to serve both as a repository manager and as a gateway that enables access to the data in the repository.

All runtime operations are distributed among the storage nodes, thereby ensuring reliability and performance as capacity grows. If a node fails, the HCP system adapts by redirecting processing to other nodes, so the stored data remains available to users.
