Cloudian HyperStore for AWS Local Zones

Cloudian HyperStore for AWS Local Zones

Enterprise-grade, S3-compatible storage for Hyper-Local AWS Cloud

AWS Local Zones brings the compute, storage, database, and other select AWS services close to large population and industry centers, creating a hyper-localized version of the cloud near you. Enhance the solution by adding Cloudian S3-compatible storage to the AWS Local Zones environment to satisfy your data storage needs in region.

Running on the infrastructure in the AWS Local Zones or co-located in the region with the AWS Local Zones in the customer co-location, Cloudian HyperStore S3-compatible storage integrates easily with applications that employ the AWS S3 protocol. You get fast deployment and the capacity you need for data-intensive applications such as documents, imaging, IoT data collection, or data analysis.

Cloud-Like Storage for the Hyper-Local Cloud

Cloudian gives you capacity within your AWS Local Zones on demand and allows you to comply with the data locality regulations. To expand, simply add HyperStore nodes, either on the AWS Local Zones infrastructure or adjacent to the AWS Local Zones infrastructure in one site or across multiple sites. Manage it all within a single namespace, from a single management console, and search metadata across all your sites with a single query. Integrated tools even let you create a data copy within AWS S3 in the central region if desired.


Meet Your Data Locality and Latency Needs

With Cloudian, your data stays in-region, enabling compliance with local regulations or corporate governance policies. Ideal for regulated or sensitive data such as healthcare information or financial records, Cloudian lets you meet your data sovereignty needs. When running adjacent to the AWS Local Zones infrastructure, Cloudian’s all-flash or HDD-based appliances deliver the fast, low-latency data access your applications require.

Exceptional Data Security

Cloudian HyperStore is certified compliant with SEC Rule 17a-4(f), FINRA Rule 4511, and CFTC Rule 1.31(c)-(d). Cloudian’s S3 Object Lock implementation with root disable capability and hardened shell provides system level data immutability for compliance, governance, legal hold, or protection from ransomware. Other security capabilities include AES-256 serverside encryption for data at rest, SSL for data in transit (HTTPS), transparent key management, role-based access controls (RBAC), audit trail logging, and secure shell with root disable.

Built-In Data Durability

Advanced erasure coding and policy-based data replication give you the data robustness you need. Get protection from device failure or even whole-site failure with configuration options that can deliver up to 14 nines data durability. Because data protection is integrated, no additional software or management tasks are required.

Easy to Deploy

A modular architecture lets you start small and grow to exabytes without interruption. Choose Cloudian appliances for plug-and-play installation. Or deploy Cloudian softwaredefined-storage on the AWS Local Zones infrastructure to get a fully contained offering in the hyper-local cloud. Either way, Cloudian HyperStore is designed to work seamlessly for all S3 workloads running within or outside an AWS Local Zones.

Industry’s Lowest TCO

Built for storage efficiency, Cloudian systems save up to 70% when compared to traditional enterprise storage. Choose HDD-based platforms to run adjacent to the AWS Local Zones for the industry’s lowest TCO or select Cloudian’s all-flash appliance for 3X better price/performance compared to competing flashbased systems.

Cloudian Hyperstore and AWS Local Zones for Healthcare

For medical imaging workloads and storing patient records

To store patient information, healthcare organizations must adhere to stringent data protection regulations, often meaning they need a hybrid and/or local cloud strategy to meet their data protection and residency requirements.

AWS Local Zones offers compute, storage, database, and other select AWS services, delivered from facilities that are close to large population and industry centers, bringing the cloud closer to where the clinic or hospital resides.

Cloudian HyperStore software delivers S3-compatible storage capacity on-demand as part of AWS Local Zones, which enhances the solution by satisfying the in-region data residency needs. Cloudian software can also be run on servers located adjacent to the AWS Local Zones.
