This page provides a guide to configuring the Hitachi Content Platform as a Storage Target in the Verba System.  

Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is a distributed storage system designed to support large, growing repositories of fixed-content data. An HCP system consists of both hardware (physical or virtual) and software.

An HCP repository is partitioned into namespaces. Each namespace consists of a distinct logical grouping of objects with its own directory structure. Namespaces are owned and managed by tenants.

HCP has implemented WORM (Write Once Read Many) capabilities. WORM describes a data storage device in which information, once written, cannot be modified. This protection assures that the data will not be tampered with once it is written to the device.

 Verba supports the WORM features of the platform, Retention Period can be defined for recorded files.

Litigation Hold: Should compliance authorities request that the deletion of existing files be prohibited, the retention time of Litigation Hold can be set on a file or a set of files. This prevents them from being deleted regardless of their current retention status. This feature is an item on the Verba roadmap (v 8.8, 2016 Q3).

For a general description of Verba Storage targets, please refer to Storage targets.

Please refer to the Hitachi Content Platform guide to configure your service.
