Cloudian Teams With Cisco to Deliver Limitlessly Scalable Storage and Seamless Data Management for Hybrid Cloud EnvironmentsApril 16, 2019
Cloudian, the leading object storage specialist, announced availability of a Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for Cloudian HyperStore on the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) platform. The CVD reflects the companies’ expanded collaboration in providing best-of-breed infrastructure solutions for modernizing enterprise data centers, including accelerating the transition to hybrid cloud. Cisco customers will now be able to capitalize fully on Cloudian’s software-defined, limitlessly scalable and highly cost-effective storage that bridges public and private cloud environments.
As a CVD, the new Cloudian-Cisco solution has been designed,
tested, and documented to facilitate faster, more reliable deployments of a
storage cluster. As a result, customers in highly data-intensive industries
such as media and entertainment, video surveillance, healthcare and scientific
research can more quickly and easily lay the foundation for maximizing the
value of their digital assets.
The Cloudian HyperStore architecture is specifically
designed for cloud infrastructures, with the industry’s best S3 compatibility,
enabling seamless data management across public and private cloud environments.
This unique integration also gives organizations the flexibility to utilize
different public cloud providers, thereby avoiding vendor lock-in. In addition
to hybrid and multi-cloud data management, other HyperStore benefits include:
- Modular and limitless scalability: Unlike many other object storage providers that require users to over-provision, Cloudian enables customers to start small and then grow without limit. As more capacity is needed, they can non-disruptively add an additional node or even new locations to the cluster and that capacity becomes part of the available storage pool.
- Geo-distribution: HyperStore’s global data fabric means storage can be deployed anywhere but still be managed centrally from a single pane of glass.
- Multi-tenancy: HyperStore provides isolated storage environments within a shared system to ensure data privacy. In addition, it incorporates billing and quality-of-service (QoS) features to help meet performance SLAs.
- Up to 70
percent cost savings: By reducing CAPEX and eliminating
expensive and time-consuming data migrations, Cloudian can cut data
protection costs by up to 70 percent compared to purpose-built disk-based
offerings and tape-based systems.
“Simplified operations, policy-based data management and
on-demand scalability are key requirements for storage deployments in today’s
modern data center,” said Siva Sivakumar, senior director, Data Center
Solutions, at Cisco. “We look forward to working with Cloudian to help
customers meet their data-intensive storage needs by leveraging Cisco UCS’
high-capacity Storage Servers with HyperStore’s cloud-ready, highly scalable
and cost-effective technology.”
“The combination of Cloudian’s industry-leading object
storage software and Cisco’s storage-optimized compute platform provides an
ideal foundation for a private or hybrid cloud infrastructure,” said Jon Toor,
chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “We’re excited about expanding our
relationship with Cisco and providing joint data management solutions that enable
customers to achieve their business or mission objectives.”
