SAN MATEO, Calif., March 27, 2018 — Cloudian®, the innovation leader in enterprise object storage systems, today announced Cloudian’s HyperStore has been certified with Quantum’s® StorNext FlexTier. This enables Quantum customers to tier data from Quantum StorNext to Cloudian HyperStore, thus providing limitlessly scalable, on-premises capacity expansion at about 70 percent less cost than traditional NAS systems.
StorNext is a high-performance, multi-tier shared storage platform designed for large, data-intensive workloads. It is the industry’s fastest streaming file system and policy-driven data management software.
FlexTier is fully integrated into the StorNext file system and enables intelligent policy-based tiering. Together with Cloudian HyperStore, it provides access to a limitlessly scalable pool of on-premises storage for StorNext capacity expansion. Employing policy-based tools, StorNext can automatically copy or move data to Cloudian HyperStore —with no scripts, programming, or manual processes. FlexTier can also be used for enhanced data protection, on-the-fly scalability, or to offload content from primary storage.
“With Cloudian HyperStore, StorNext users have a new option to cost-effectively expand their Quantum storage environment. In addition, they get a storage platform with industry-leading S3 API interoperability, thus creating new storage options for a wide range of cutting-edge S3-compatible applications that address current and future unstructured data growth challenges,” said Sanjay Jagad, senior director of products and solutions at Cloudian.
“A high-performance data infrastructure is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ – businesses need fast access in order to remain competitive,” said Laura Shepard, senior director of scale-out product marketing, Quantum. “Cloudian HyperStore is easily integrated into a StorNext-powered storage environment, giving our customers more choice and flexibility for offloading data from primary storage.”
