Simplify storage for your Nutanix environment with an affordable, feature-rich, S3 compatible limitlessly scalable storage platform.

Enhance object storage deployment flexibility with Cloudian® HyperStore® running natively as Nutanix VMs and external clusters to serve your increasingly critical data storage needs.

A Built-in Object Storage Solution for Your Nutanix Environment

Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure provides a simple and efficient platform for running even the most data-intensive workloads. Your storage object solution should provide the same level of simplicity and economics – especially in a world with a dramatically increasing amount of data – and the need to manage and protect it.

Your storage solution should also be flexible and scale as your data needs scale while being cost-effective and reliable. Cloudian and Nutanix have collaborated to create a Nutanix certified solution to do all of that, and more. Multi-cloud ready with flexible deployment options, HyperStore is S3 compatible storage and provides a secure, enterprise-grade storage tier for Nutanix environments. Deploy as a VM within the Nutanix cluster as well as an external cluster for additional, limitless scalable capacity.

A Storage and Archive Tier for Data that Needs to be Protected

For data protection, your typical choices are disk-based appliances or tape. Cloudian breaks the price-performance barrier with a disk-based backup target that is fast, simple, and cost-effective.
