Internet Unie, a provider of managed hosting and data center services with customers including Bosch, eBay, IVECO, HEMA and PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC), has selected Cloudian to provide their HyperStore object storage solution for a new hybrid cloud storage service.
As an Amsterdam, the Netherlands-based hosting provider, Internet Unie specializes in delivering fully managed infrastructure and hosting services to enterprise customers. It will utilize Cloudian’s storage system to offer its customers a new cloud service enabling them to employ both Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud storage and a Cloudian storage system located in the Internet Unie data center – and manage both as a single limitlessly scalable storage environment.
“This hybrid service opens up enormous possibilities for those using the AWS service cloud offerings and need to store certain data types in a private cloud, for reasons such as data governance policies,” said Arvid Cauwels, Sales Director at Internet Unie. “With Cloudian’s new offering on AWS, our customers can point their applications to either cloud storage or on-premises storage, and it’s completely transparent. With AWS metering now available for Cloudian storage, customers get one AWS invoice for both their public and private cloud storage usage.”
Based in Silicon Valley, Cloudian is a provider of hybrid cloud object storage systems. Its flagship product, Cloudian HyperStore, would enable service providers and enterprises to build reliable, affordable and scalable hybrid cloud storage solutions.
“Internet Unie understands that the enormous demand for Amazon S3 storage is also driving demand for on-premises cloud-compatible storage,” said Jacco van Achterberg, Sales Director at Cloudian. “Customers want the best of both worlds and this hybrid offering gives them full control over their storage workloads in both the public and private cloud.”
