According to a recent press release, “Cloudian, the leading object storage specialist, today announced availability of a Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for Cloudian HyperStore on 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 release goes on, “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: (1) 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. (2) Geo-distribution: HyperStore’s global data fabric means storage can be deployed anywhere but still be managed centrally from a single pane of glass.”
