Greg Knieriemen, vice president of marketing at Chi Corp., a Cleveland-based solution provider and HDS partner, called the new HCP v4 and Hitachi Data Ingestor a great solution.
"We've got a customer right out of the gate," Knieriemen said. "I'm redoing a spec for what could be a quick sale with a multilocation customer. They're looking at putting HDIs in remote offices, with their data all going to a central location. For them, being able to manage storage from a regulatory point-of-view is important."
Loughlin said that the HPC solution is currently sold through HDS's indirect sales channel partners, and that Hitachi Data Ingestor sales will be tied to the HPC sales through the channel as a joint solution.
Both products are currently available.
