Cloudian HyperFile and Cloudian HyperStore together deliver scalable enterprise file services. HyperFile provides a cost-effective solution for your capacity-intensive, less frequently used files. HyperStore provides scalable storage, letting you grow seamlessly from terabytes to petabytes at 1/3 the cost of enterprise NAS.​

Enterprise-Class, Scale-Out File Services​

Multi-Protocol Support

Supports Windows and Linux clients and applications. SMB (CIFS), NFS, POSIX compliant. Also supports Active Directory and LDAP integration.​

Limitless Capacity

Scale from terabytes to petabytes, without disruption, simply by adding Cloudian HyperStore nodes. Cached data within HyperFile accelerates access to frequently used files.

Ransomware Protection​

Create non-rewritable, non-erasable data to prevent files from being altered or deleted until a set retention date.

“Cloudian HyperFile is the first solution we’ve seen that combines the file management features and rock-solid data durability we need with the scalability, simplicity, and value that will help us save significantly on CAPEX and OPEX.”

Capabilities and Benefits​

Scale-Out Performance​​​

Multiple HyperFile NAS Controllers can access a single namespace for scalable performance. Independently scale performance and capacity to meet your exact needs. ​


When a single cluster is shared by multiple groups or clients, multi-tenancy lets you assign separate namespaces to each group for isolation and segregated management. QoS at the storage level lets you guarantee performance to each group.​

Bimodal Access​

Access your file data directly, both on-prem and in the cloud. Store files to any S3 compatible storage then access them directly — without traversing HyperFile. Store files to AWS S3, for example, and access them from cloud-based applications. ​

Local Caching​​

Each HyperFile NAS Controller includes file caching to accelerate read/write performance. Select the appropriate cache size for your usage profile to optimize cost vs performance.​

Virtual Machine​

Cloudian HyperFile software is available as a virtual machine. See the datasheet for hardware requirements.

Cloudian Appliances​​

Cloudian HyperFile appliances include pre-integrated HyperFile software. The 1U devices include onboard caching to accelerate access to frequently used data.
