HCP Storage and Objects - for blog.png


Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is a massively scalable, multi-tiered, multi-tenant, hybrid cloud solution that spans small, mid-sized, and enterprise organizations.  While HCP already provides monitoring capabilities, Hitachi Content Monitor (Content Monitor) is a tightly-integrated, cost-effective add-on that delivers enhanced monitoring and performance visualizations of HCP G Series and HCP VM storage nodes.


Content Monitor’s tight-integration with HCP enables comprehensive insights into HCP performance to enable proactive capacity planning and more timely troubleshooting.  Customizable and pre-built dashboards provide a convenient view of critical HCP events and performance violations.  Receive e-mail and syslog notifications when defined thresholds are exceeded.  Aggregate and visualize multiple HCP performance metrics into a single view, and correlate events with each other to enable deeper insights into HCP behavior.


Content Monitor is quick to install, easy to configure, and simple to use.
