Ransomware Protection: Immutable Data Storage

Attacks can strike even the best-prepared, making it essential to mitigate the effects of a successful breach. In this webinar, we discuss how the cyber-attacks work and what are the key needs that are crucial to combat these challenges.

“The Sum of the Parts is Greater Than the Whole” – when it comes to Object Storage

At Cloudian, we often tell customers that the secret to maximum performance is parallelism or multi-threading. The reality is that a single TCP stream to an S3 object storage system cannot take full advantage of the available bandwidth between the client and the Hyperstore cluster. While a Hyperstore cluster is capable of efficiently handling a large number of simultaneous uploads, a single upload on its own is far from optimal. In some workflows, it is possible to send multiple objects simultaneously; however, in many instances, users still need a way to optimize the performance of a single file upload or outgoing data stream.

Cloudian HyperStore for VMware vSAN Data Persistence Platform

Cloudian today announced that it will offer its enterprise-grade, fully native S3-API compatible object storage software for VMware Cloud Foundation™ with VMware Tanzu™. The integrated solution combines industry-leading VMware HCI platform and Cloudian HyperStore object storage into a single shared-nothing data platform, allowing IT operators to modernize their storage infrastructure, accelerate innovation and improve time to market with enhanced application portability. With this integrated solution, enterprises can run any application in a single storage environment, at any scale, on-prem and in the cloud, while also reducing storage costs by 60% or more.

New Flash-optimized HyperStore Delivers 3X Savings, Pure and Simple

Flash storage delivers great performance, but it’s expensive. Cloudian now offers an S3-compatible, all-flash solution that cuts cost by 2/3 vs other all-flash storage solutions. Choose from software-defined-storage or pre-configured appliances. Either way, it’s flash storage you can afford.

Easily provision S3 buckets on HyperStore with Kubernetes

One of the key features of Kubernetes is the ability to dynamically scale your pods to the workload demand.  These Pods are often self contained micro-services that have a specific job to do.  But what if you want equally convenient access to similarly isolated storage?  That’s just the problem the recently released Cloudian S3 Operator aims to solve!

S3-Compatible Private Cloud Storage for Kubernetes

Today Cloudian announced Kubernetes support. We now offer an enterprise-class, private cloud storage solution for the entire modern application lifecycle. For developers, this is an S3-compatible, self-service storage platform, accessible via a lightweight Kubernetes operator that is available now on GitHub. For the operations team, this platform provides exabyte scalability, multi-cloud management, and hardened data security. All at a total cost of ownership that’s 60% less than public cloud.

Introducing our New Ransomware Protection Solution for Commvault Environments

Did you know that cyberattacks are one of the Top 10 most-likely global risks according to The World Economic Forum*?  This includes ransomware attacks which are accelerating in frequency.  Cyberhackers are increasingly targeting an organization’s backup data and holding this data hostage in exchange for a ransom payment.  Ransomware attacks work by encrypting the user’s data, rendering it useless with an aim to harm the business.  Organizations that are attacked and lose access to both primary and backup data stores have had to shut down, unable to operate. News of ransomware attacks also adversely impact organizations’ brand and reputation.

The Right Way to Splunk with Cloudian
