Cloudian, Komprise Offer Cure for Common Cold Storage Problem; Enables Customers to Reclaim 60 Percent of Tier 1 NAS Capacity
The Cloudian/Komprise data management and storage solution helps customers tier data transparently to less expensive resilient storage
SAN FRANCISCO – May 24, 2017 — Cloudian, Inc., a global leader in enterprise object storage systems, and Komprise, the industry-leader in intelligent data management, today announced a joint solution that enables customers to move dormant or infrequently used data to an on-premise active archive and reclaim more than half of their Tier 1 Network-Attached Storage (NAS) capacity.
“Organizations have to contend with cold or infrequently accessed data that can occupy more than 60 percent of their most costly NAS resources,” said Jon Toor, Cloudian’s chief marketing officer. “The Cloudian/Komprise solution enables customers to move cold data to an onsite active archive to be transparently accessed when needed, with zero impact to the user experience.”
The Cloudian/Komprise solution uses the Komprise data management software to identify inactive NAS data and then transparently move it to an on-premises Cloudian scale-out storage device. Customer-defined policies, such as data age, frequency of use, and file type determine which data should be tiered. All data remains within the data center.
“We are pleased to partner with Cloudian and provide customers a simple, frictionless way to adopt cost-efficient secondary storage without disrupting current users or applications,” said Krishna Subramanian, COO of Komprise. “Our software provides the visibility and detailed analytics that help customers make informed decisions about which data can be non-disruptively migrated off expensive NAS environments and moves data transparently. Once transferred, the data can still be searched, accessed, and modified as files. Users will never know the difference.”
The solution is ideal for enterprise customers and service providers who have large amounts of file-based data and need a solution that can reduce storage costs. Cloudian provides high-availability, enterprise-class storage at 70 percent less than the costs of traditional NAS solutions. Additionally, data migrated to Cloudian no longer consumes backup license costs, reducing overall backup cost by as much as 60 percent.
“Cloudian and Komprise have given us a new way to manage customer data in a manner that delivers significant cost savings with no noticeable impact on performance or the customer experience,” said Richard Tatham, GM of cloud services at Sithabile Technology Services in South Africa. “With more than 13 years of experience helping customers build and manage storage architectures that span from tape to high end storage devices, we see this solution as the best way for our customers to reduce their storage costs and maintain the performance they expect and need.”
Cloudian and Komprise will hold a joint webinar on June 1, at 10AM PST (1PM EST) which will include a solution overview and the return-on-investment achieved by deferring costly NAS expansion projects. To register for this live event, please visit https://cloudian.com/delay-next-nas-expansion.
