Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage software is now flash-optimized. It enables enterprises to meet the needs of performance-intensive workloads. Applications may include data analytics, AI/ML, cloud-native applications and rapid backup and recovery.
Cloudian claims that its new solution delivers more than 3 times better price/performance than competitive flash-based object storage systems. It features the unique ability to deploy flash and HDD-based nodes within an adaptive hybrid architecture. This would allow customers to further reduce total cost by tiering less frequently used data to “lower-cost” HDD-based storage. Cloudian’s flash-optimized HyperStore is available as both a software-only solution and as a pre-configured appliance for deployment in a data center, the HyperStore Flash 1000 Series.
Object storage allows for limitless scalability, geo-distribution, advanced metadata features and cost-effectiveness. Therefore, it is increasingly the preferred choice over traditional SAN and NAS systems for meeting modern, cloud-centric data demands. In addition to using object storage for capacity-intensive workloads, enterprises are looking to leverage object storage in use cases where performance is a priority.
NVMe, Intel Optane
Cloudian’s new flash-optimized software would deliver the needed performance while providing all the advantages of Cloudian’s enterprise-grade object storage platform. These would include fully native S3 compatibility, industry-leading security and advanced management features such as multi-tenancy and quality-of-service. Flash-optimized HyperStore leverages the reduced-latency I/O profile of flash media on industry-standard hardware, delivering partial-object reads and low latency data accesses at scale.
Cloudian’s platform is certified with leading NVMe suppliers such as Intel and Kioxia and is Intel Optane-ready for even greater performance. For users who prefer an integrated appliance, HyperStore Flash 1000 offers 77 TB and 154 TB capacities in a 1U form factor.
“With object storage increasingly displacing legacy SAN and NAS systems, our customers need new options for performance-intensive workloads such as analytics and ultra-rapid data restore,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer (CMO) at Cloudian. “Our new flash solution not only addresses this need but also includes an industry-first feature that automatically manages data across flash and HDD-based platforms to deliver the optimal mix of performance, cost and capacity.”
