“We know enterprises want seamless access and integration with all the business applications they need to run their organization. That’s why we have long offered full compatibility with industry-leading Amazon S3,” said Paul Turner, chief marketing officer and technology evangelist at Cloudian. “With HyperStore Connect for Files, enterprises experience the same simple, reliable and highly scalable data storage using industry standard access protocol for files and content storage, without the need for a third-party gateway. Cloudian is committed to leading the industry in offering flexible, petabyte-scale storage architecture that delivers the agility enterprises demand as their storage and business need evolve.”

HyperStore Connect for Files is comprised of two modules – File Access Point and the Global View Manager. It is a simple plug-in component for HyperStore 5.2 and natively supports full NFS v3 and SMB 2.1. The first module, Access Point, is designed to be stateless and acts as a server that clients connect to in order to translate files to objects. The second module, Global View Manager, delivers a global namespace and global file locking for distributed collaboration across locations. Organizations using HyperStore can replicate file data across multiple sites for disaster recovery or distribution (either synchronously or asynchronously), thereby eliminating the need to buy third-party mirroring software licenses.
