HOW HITACHI DATA INGESTOR
MIGRATES FILES
 Application writes a file to Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI)
 Hitachi Data Ingestor replicates the file to Hitachi Content Platform (HCP)
 Users can “pin” files of their choices to make them stay on HDI all the time
 When system capacity reaches 90%, HDI deletes “non-pinned” files in excess of
the threshold and creates 4KB link stubs to replace them
- Users access the files as they always have, since links are transparent to clients
 Reading a link recalls the file back into HDI
- Recalled files are deleted from HDI later and replaced by another link, based on HDI
system capacity and least-recently-used criteria

HITACHI DATA INGESTOR:
INTELLIGENT CACHING
Features
 Intelligent cache management
- Identifies and retains newer and more
frequently accessed files
- Cache tuned to edge deployments
with WAN connectivity
 Advanced capacity management and
high performance
CAPABILITY
METHOD
Stubbing
frequency
Files are stubbed
every hour
LRU algorithm
Oldest files are
purged first, based
on atime and
mtime attributes;
newer files stay in
cache longer
Read cache
Recalled files stay
in cache until the
next capacitymanagement
process
Benefits
 Faster access to frequently used files
– active files stay on HDI all the time
 Enhanced replication performance
 Maximum capacity utilization
 Free up bandwidth over the WAN

Benefits
 Satisfy multiple applications, varying SLAs and workload types or organizations
 Determine utilization and chargeback per customer
 Edge dispersion: each HDI can access another when set up that way
 Enable advanced features at one branch or at more granular level
• Examples: replication, encryption, DPL levels (how many copies to keep),
compliance and retention, compression and versioning
COMPLIANCE AND GOVERNANCE
CAPABILITIES
Flexible retention support and WORM functionality using an
industry-standard atime-based interface and automated settings
 Retention is an optional setting
 Allows you to specify a file’s retention date; the file is then protected
by strict WORM restrictions
-
While under retention, WORM files cannot be deleted
WORM files are immutable, even after retention expires
WORM files cannot be renamed
Directories containing WORM files cannot be renamed
 Retention settings are transferred to Hitachi Content Platform as
files are migrated
 Retention can be tunable per file system
 Support for backup and restore of retention properties
CONTENT SHARING
 A Hitachi Data Ingestor system can map to a
Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) tenant to write
content and potentially read content from other
HCP tenants
 Sharing supports a single writer with many readers

CONTENT SHARING USE CASE:
MEDICAL IMAGE FILE SHARING
 Hospital A stores medical files to file system A of Hitachi Data
Ingestor A
 The files are migrated to namespace A on Hitachi Content Platform
(HCP)
 Hospital B can read the files through file system A, which is mapped
to namespace A on Hitachi Content Platform

FILE RESTORE

Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI) creates a snapshot directory for each migration

Snapshot are created under a history directory

User can access snapshot files for specified migrations under “.history/<date+time>/<original path>”
and can restore a snapshot file to the current working directory

NAS MIGRATION
 Hitachi Data Ingestor (HDI) migrates data from a customer’s production
NAS to HDI file system and then to Hitachi Content Platform (HCP)
 NAS migration is an automated background task, designed to be
transparent to users of NAS system being migrated
 Supported platforms are NetApp and Windows storage servers
 CIFS only
