Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is the distributed, fixed-content, data storage system from Hitachi Vantara. An HCP system consists of both hardware and software.

An HCP with internal storage system is delivered to a customer site as either a racked appliance or unracked components. In either case, all the components are preconfigured, and the HCP software is already installed. However, once the system is delivered and, for unracked components, assembled, it needs some final on-site setup.

This chapter contains:

  • An introduction to HCP
  • A description of the hardware architecture of HCP with internal storage systems
  • An overview of the final setup activities required to make your HCP with internal storage system operational at your site
Note: In this book, a system that is delivered in a rack is referred to as preassembled system. A system that is delivered without a rack is referred to as a rackless system, even though, when assembled, it includes a rack.
