Vision: To bring object storage to the enterprise
Cloudian was founded with a clear vision to revolutionize object storage
Unlike previous object storage solutions that were expensive, complex and proprietary, Cloudian’s vision was to create a system that would allow all sizes and types of users to realize the benefits of object storage systems in their own data centers.
The challenge was clear
Cloudian’s founders saw that data center managers, broadcasters, researchers, and software developers needed solutions to help them contend with the explosive growth in unstructured data. Across all industries – from media, to medical, to industrial – new applications and technologies drove 50 percent annual growth of unstructured data, creating a crisis of storage cost and complexity. An affordable, highly-scalable, easy-to-use object storage system would clearly be the optimal solution to this problem.
An API standard, and limitless scalability
First, a revolutionary new solution required a widely accepted API that software developers would embrace. Fortunately, Amazon established a defacto object storage standard with the S3 storage service Second, the solution required a highly scalable platform to build on.
Cloudian had such a platform. The company’s genesis was in the world of large-scale wireless messaging systems with Gemini Mobile, a leader in the design and deployment of the first mobile messaging platforms used by some of the world’s largest telcos. This object storage platform was launched in 2011 as Cloudian HyperStore.
Today, enterprises and service providers are building reliable, affordable, and scalable private cloud storage solutions with Cloudian HyperStore, the leading 100% native S3 object storage solution.
Cloudian is a Silicon Valley-based object storage company specializing 100% native S3 API storage systems. With technology roots in the large-scale enterprise message space, Cloudian introduced HyperStore in 2011. Cloudian products are offered by reseller partners including Amazon, Lenovo, and Quanta, and by strategic and reseller partners worldwide.
Cloudian simplifies enterprise storage with limitlessly scalable storage that consolidates massive data sets to a single, easily managed environment. Our 100% native S3 interface is guaranteed compatible with Amazon S3, the de facto standard in cloud object storage.
Cloudian brings the flexibility and simplicity of public cloud storage into our customer’s data centers, simplifying management and reducing TCO by 70% versus conventional storage systems. Cloudian’s S3 interoperability ensures investment protection for developers and for data center managers who rely on the thousands of S3-enabled applications available from vendors such as Adobe, Computer Associates, Commvault, Citrix, IBM, Veritas, Redhat, Dalet, and others.
HyperStore can scale from just three nodes to hundreds, allowing systems to be right-sized for any application or organizational need. Cloudian dramatically reduces enterprise storage costs with up to 95% less management overhead, 30% less power/space/cooling by 30%, and a highly robust design that ensures maximum productivity with nine 9’s reliability.
Cloudian use cases including backup/archive, media and entertainment, bioinformatics, IoT, and more.
