Global cloud and network company, Interoute, has rolled out a cloud-based storage service based on Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage technology. Offered as part of the ‘Interoute Virtual Data Centre’ cloud platform, it provides users with cloud-based storage for unstructured data, backups and archives.
Having evaluated a range of object storage technology vendors, Interoute selected Cloudian’s HyperStore for its scale-out capabilities, “industry-leading S3 API compatibility”, multi-tenancy features and ease of integration. Interoute customers have adopted the Cloudian-based service for use cases such as data resiliency, static content hosting and media archiving.
“With GDPR looming large in 2018, as well as the rapid adoption of VDC and SaaS platforms, our customers are revisiting the legacy world of physical backup and archiving and demanding a simple, controlled, auditable cloud service,” said Mark Lewis, EVP Products and Development, Interoute. “So, we’ve created an easily accessed and integrated, cost-effective object storage service to support their digital transformation.”
Interoute is offering multiple petabytes of capacity, with further growth planned in accordance with customer demand. The Cloudian deployment is available across the entire Interoute platform with 17 ‘Virtual Data Centre’ zones globally. Customers have the option to use “resilient” in-country deployments in Switzerland and Germany.
The geo-location flexibility offered by the Cloudian solution, in combination with the Interoute Enterprise Digital Platform, would give Interoute customers control over data locality and assured performance, enabling them to build regulatory-compliant storage solutions in different territories.
Jon Toor, chief marketing officer (CMO) at Cloudian, commented, “With Cloudian, Interoute is offering its customers choice in limitlessly scalable and cost effective storage, on a foundation that is proven in some of the world’s largest unstructured data stores.”
