GigaOm Radar Names Hitachi Vantara a Leader and Fast Mover in Unstructured Data Management


Industry recognition highlights Hitachi Vantara’s continued leadership and innovation in unstructured data, delivering cyber resiliency, compliance, and cost efficiencies

Hitachi Vantara’s Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) has been recognized as a leader and fast mover in the latest GigaOm Radar Report for Unstructured Data Management for Infrastructure-focused Solutions. The report evaluated 12 vendors in the market and rated them on their capabilities to address the complex challenges of managing unstructured data in large-scale infrastructure environments. This is the third consecutive year HCP has received GigaOm recognition for leadership in the unstructured data management radar for infrastructure solutions.

The report highlights the exceptional performance of HCP across a wide range of metrics and criteria. HCP was rated exceptional in five out of six evaluation metrics. The exceptional metrics include architecture, scalability, flexibility, performance and efficiency, and ecosystem. Furthermore, HCP was also rated exceptional in five out of seven key criteria, including metadata analytics, global content & search, big data analytics, compliance, and security. HCP was also rated exceptional in both deployment models – user managed and SaaS.

“To be a GigaOm radar leader, a company must distinguish itself across several key criteria, such as the ability to deliver high performance, scalability across data, and strong compliance and security capabilities,” said Arjan Timmerman, analyst, GigaOm. “Hitachi Vantara’s HCP platform delivers ease of use, with the ability to help customers optimize and secure their object storage performance. HCP delivers fast data processing and insights into data, meeting the most pressing demands of today’s modern cloud-native workloads. This is why HCP is considered a leader in managing unstructured data.” 

Solutions in a complex cloud environment

Managing unstructured data in complex multicloud and multi-vendor infrastructure environments is one of the numerous data management challenges many organizations encounter. According to the report, enterprises face several operational and business risks including dark and orphaned data, security, infrastructure cost, and compliance risks if they do not have a data strategy in place. Additionally, the report highlights that while storage for structured data (or primary storage) is still one of the most significant items of expenditure in any IT budget, unstructured data storage now accounts for 80% to 90% of the total capacity and is growing more quickly than any other form of storage. Infrastructure solutions defined by GigaOm are designed to target data management at the infrastructure level and metadata. Hitachi Vantara has demonstrated exceptional capabilities in these areas, making it a preferred choice for customers.

“This recognition is a testament to the company’s commitment to innovation and its ability to cater to the dynamic needs of customers in the infrastructure solutions market,” said Dan McConnell, senior vice president, product management-storage, Hitachi Vantara. “As data management becomes increasingly important, companies must address expanding requirements such as performance, scalability, and data intelligence. Data-aware products like HCP are critical in managing costs, gaining insights, supporting new applications, and meeting regulatory requirements for privacy and security, particularly as unstructured data continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. Hitachi Vantara remains dedicated to delivering exceptional data management solutions to its customers.”
