ThinkOn, a wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider from Toronto, Canada is now using Cloudian object storage solutions to expand their storage management resources for its hosted Commvault storage services. ThinkOn and its group of more than 65 reseller partners would help customers leverage cloud-based technology to maximize compute, network and storage resources.
ThinkOn selected Cloudian after its original object storage software provider experienced technical issues. After reviewing multiple object storage solutions, ThinkOn licensed 200TBs of Cloudian storage capacity for five data centers spread across Toronto, Montreal and Calgary.
Craig McLellan, founder of ThinkOn, said the company selected Cloudian because it offered one of the best S3 APIs on the market and provided easy integration with its management tools, including the company’s resource monitoring and orchestration systems. With its storage services alignment activities, the company is planning for rapid growth and expansion to new markets, including medical imaging and archiving services.
“Cloudian technology has been instrumental in growing our S3-compatible object storage services,” said Craig McLellan. “Before we deployed Cloudian, our S3-compatible storage footprint growth was modest. Now we’re more than doubling it every year. With Cloudian, we continue to solidify our service delivery infrastructure and accelerate the growth of our customer base. Our business opportunities for object storage are bigger than they’ve ever been.”
Based in Silicon Valley, Cloudian’s flagship object storage system, Cloudian HyperStore, would enable service providers and enterprises to build reliable, affordable and scalable object storage solutions.
