Tenants and namespaces


Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is a distributed storage system designed to support large, growing repositories of fixed-content data.

HCP stores objects that include both data and metadata that describes that data. HCP represents these objects either as URLs or as files in a standard file system.

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 provides access to objects through a variety of industry-standard protocols, as well as through various HCP-specific interfaces.

This chapter contains an overview of Hitachi Content Platform.
