Cloudian extends AWS alliance, bringing greater storage options to businesses

FYI, this story is more than a year old

Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage platform has achieved AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program.

As a result, AWS Outposts customers can now employ on-premises, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)-compatible storage to serve use cases that demand data residency and low-latency data access.

This is especially pertinent for sectors such as financial services, healthcare, media and entertainment, telecommunications and government.

Deployed alongside AWS Outposts in a data center, Cloudian gives customers exabyte-scalable storage to support modern applications.

HyperStore delivers native Amazon S3 API compatibility, cloud-like flexibility and geo-distribution that enables customers to manage data globally across multiple sites within a single namespace, the company states.

Other HyperStore benefits include:

Modular scalability: Allows users to start with three low-cost nodes and expand to exabytes without interruption simply by adding devices to the cluster.

Data residency: All data is stored locally, ensuring compliance with data governance regulations.

Low latency: Local data access from Cloudian’s all-flash or HDD-based storage appliances delivers optimised performance.

Data immutability: For ransomware protection and compliance. Amazon S3 Object Lock feature prevents malware from encrypting data for recovery of an unencrypted backup copy without paying ransom, and also serves governance and legal hold demands.

Robust security: Includes secure shell, integrated firewall, RBAC/IAM access controls, AES-256 server-side encryption for data at rest and SSL for data in transit.

Hybrid cloud-readiness: Supports replication and policy-based data tiering to Amazon S3.

Advanced metadata tagging: Facilitates rapid data search and AI/ML/analytics applications.

AWS general manager AWS Outposts Joshua Burgin says, “AWS Outposts brings AWS hardware, services, APIs, and tools to customers’ data centers, addressing the need for better ways to store and manage data across the enterprise.

"With Cloudian’s HyperStore solution - already deployed at leading organisations around the world - we’re expanding the workloads AWS Outposts serves by enabling on-prem, S3-compatible storage that meets data residency and latency requirements.”

Cloudian chief marketing officer Jon Toor says, “Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage was architected from Day 1 to allow customers to experience the efficiency of a private cloud storage infrastructure within their own data centers.

"We’re excited about working with AWS to give AWS Outposts users answers to their data residency, latency and scalability requirements with a simple, proven solution.

"As a result, customers will be better positioned to bring more modern applications on-premises to drive greater business and operational success.”

Cloudian regional director A/NZ and Oceania James Wright says, “We’re enhancing our alliance with the number one cloud provider in A/NZ, providing AWS Outposts customers with vital technology that combines secure, exabyte-scalable storage with data sovereignty requirements.

"Security and sovereignty are not only top of mind for businesses and IT partners; they’re ingrained as one of the top issues in our national psyche.

"This represents a huge opportunity for our growing number of A/NZ partners - including ASI Solutions, Datacom, NTT and Perfekt - to help their customers to leverage the benefits of hybrid cloud and new modern applications to survive and thrive in a digital economy.”

AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any data center, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.

Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates Cloudian as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product fully tested on AWS Outposts.
