Cloudian, a data management solutions and cloud technology provider with a hyperscale data fabric that lets customers store, find and protect data across the organization and around the globe, has announced availability of a Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for its Cloudian HyperStore on Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) platform.

“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 (CMO) of Cloudian.

Cloudian’s software-defined and limitlessly scalable object storage solution bridges public and private cloud environments. The launch of this Cisco Validated Design would reflect Cloudian’s expanded collaboration in providing best-of-breed infrastructure solutions for modernizing enterprise data centers.

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 & entertainment, video surveillance, healthcare and scientific research would be better able to lay the foundation for maximizing the value of their digital assets.

Cloud Infrastructures

The Cloudian HyperStore architecture is specifically designed for cloud infrastructures, with S3 compatibility enabling “seamless” data management across public and private cloud environments. This unique integration would also give organizations the flexibility to utilize different public cloud providers, thereby avoiding vendor lock-in.

“Simplifying storage deployments, scaling out on demand and self-optimizing data management are key requirements in today’s modern data center,” said Siva Sivakumar, senior director, Data Center Solutions, Cisco. “We look forward to working with Cloudian to help our customers meet their evolving storage needs, leveraging HyperStore’s cloud-ready, highly scalable and cost-effective technology.”

In addition to hybrid and multi-cloud data management, other HyperStore benefits include:

  • Modular and limitless scalability – Cloudian would enable 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 – The Cloudian HyperStore’s global data fabric means storage can be deployed anywhere worldwide 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.

“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 (CMO) of Cloudian. “We’re excited about expanding our partnership with Cisco and providing joint data management solutions that enable customers to achieve their business or mission objectives.”
