    • HOW TO USE AND DEVELOP APPLICATIONS DESIGNED FOR OBJECT STORAGE PART 3 OF 3 WAYZEN LIN, DIRECTOR OF TECHNOLOGY HITACHI CONTENT SERVICES JULY 24, 2012
    • WEBTECH EDUCATIONAL SERIES How to Use and Develop Applications Designed for Object Storage In part 3 of 3, you will learn how to make object storage part of your existing environments, how to use object storage with the next generation of cloud-enabled applications, and how to develop applications for object storage. Join Wayzen Lin, directory of technology for Hitachi content services, to explore using object storage with legacy applications and new applications and developing applications to work with object storage. Attend this WebTech to learn how to • Integrate legacy applications with object storage • Integrate Web 2.0 applications with object storage • Develop applications for use with object storage
    • AGENDA  Back to basics ‒ Why use object storage? ‒ How do I use object storage? ‒ Who uses object storage? IN THIS PRESENTATION
    • WHY USE OBJECT STORAGE?  Modern applications create lots of data ‒ More than a single disk can hold ‒ More than a RAID group can consolidate ‒ More than a NAS mount can share ‒ More than a SAN array can host STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
    • WHY USE OBJECT STORAGE? APP Which volume should I write data to? Am I almost out of space on volume 2? The disks in volume 3 are old and out of support! I can’t write to volume 1! What should I do? I need to add more storage, I’m running out of space!
    • WHY USE OBJECT STORAGE? THE RUB they are forced to manage storage Modern applications are forced to do more than just solve business problems–
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) makes all of these…  …and all of these  …look and behave as one  Applications talk to a single, virtual pool of storage GLOBAL NAMESPACE APP
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Highly available Routes around individual component failures  Flexible Add storage whenever and wherever you need it  Efficient Optimizes layout of data for maximum storage utilization  Automated Single point of management for all storage GLOBAL NAMESPACE APP
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM? GLOBAL NAMESPACE not on managing storage Hitachi Content Platform lets applications focus on solving business problems–
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Applications use different protocols to talk to storage ‒ SCSI (Block) ‒ NFS (Unix NAS) ‒ CIFS (Windows NAS) ‒ HTTP (Web) BABEL
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Updating existing applications to speak newer protocols is a tough job ‒ Data migrations ‒ Application downtime ‒ Feature gaps BABEL
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Hitachi Content Platform is multilingual ‒ HTTP (Web) * ‒ NFS (Unix) ‒ SMTP (Email) ‒ CIFS (Windows) UNIFIED ACCESS
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM? UNIFIED ACCESS using any protocol Hitachi Content Platform lets applications store and retrieve data–
    • HOW DO I USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  NFS and CIFS ‒ Simplest integration ‒ Works out-of-the-box  Hitachi Content Platform looks like a NAS share ‒ User-defined names ‒ Create directories ‒ Read and write files TALKING THE TALK
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Caveats ‒ Write once, read many ‒ No advanced NAS features (Snaps, virus scanning, ACLs)  Benefits ‒ Seamless scalability ‒ Unified access ‒ What else? TALKING THE TALK
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM? AND YOU, AND YOU, AND YOU APP A file on volume 3 looks corrupted! I need to replicate my data for disaster recovery! How do I meet regulatory standards for compliance? I need to migrate my data to newer storage! A lot of my data is duplicated! A lot of my data is plain text!
    • WHY USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Data protection Archival-quality data protection, repair and maintenance  Data governance World-class data retention, regulatory compliance, and information lifecycle management  Data deduplication and data compression Built-in storage optimization BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! APP
    • HOW DO I USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  HTTP/REST ‒ Hitachi Content Platform native protocol ‒ Web 2.0 style  New technology to the storage market  Why integrate your application with it? WORKING WITH THE INTERWEBS
    • HOW DO I USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  High performance Hitachi Content Platform native protocol  WAN-friendly Optimized for high-latency network access (i.e., works over the Internet)  Custom metadata Tag objects with “data about the data”  Metadata query “What objects owned by Pediatrics are MRI scans of patient 8529132 and will go out of retention in 2 weeks?” WHY USE HTTP/REST?
    • HOW DO I USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM? SIMPLE BY NATURE
    • HOW DO I USE HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM? SIMPLE BY NATURE
    • WHO USES HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Symantec Enterprise Vault ‒ Email and file archiving ‒ HTTP/REST integration  Arkivio ‒ File archiving ‒ HTTP/REST integration THE BULLPEN
    • WHO USES HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  SAP NetWeaver ILM ‒ ERP database archiving ‒ HTTP/WebDAV integration  Informatica ‒ Database archiving ‒ HTTP/REST integration (coming soon) THE BULLPEN
    • WHO USES HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Filenet P8 ‒ Content management ‒ HTTP/REST integration  OpenText ‒ Content management ‒ HTTP/REST integration THE BULLPEN
    • WHO USES HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Hitachi Data Discovery Suite ‒ Scale-out search appliance ‒ HTTP/REST integration ‒ HTTP/MQE integration  Hitachi Clinical Repository ‒ DICOM archiving ‒ HTTP/REST integration HOME COURT ADVANTAGE
    • WHO USES HITACHI CONTENT PLATFORM?  Hitachi Data Ingestor ‒ NAS caching appliance ‒ HTTP/REST integration ‒ HTTP/MQE integration ‒ HTTP/MAPI integration AND NOW FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT
    • SUMMARY AND NEXT STEPS  Learn more Cloud is coming – Hitachi Content Platform can help.  Assess your environment What applications would benefit from Hitachi Content Platform?  Assess your future What new services and applications will you be hosting tomorrow?  Try it for yourself Take the Hitachi Content Platform evaluation edition (VM) for a spin. I’M INTERESTED!
