Cloud4U Storage-as-a-Service Offering Built on Cloudian Software
LONDON, Dec. 6, 2021 – Cloudian® today highlighted the role of its HyperStore object storage in helping Cloud4U, a leading Russian cloud service provider, grow its business. Last year Cloud4U launched a S3 Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) offering powered by HyperStore software, giving its customers a fully S3 compatible and limitlessly scalable modern platform for managing and protecting their growing data volumes.
With over 2000 customers and the most Infrastructure-as-a-Service projects in Russia, Cloud4U helps enterprises run their businesses more efficiently and cost-effectively. As the number of S3-based applications increased significantly over the last few years, Cloud4U wanted to ensure it could provide a robust storage foundation to support these applications.
“After evaluating different solutions, we chose Cloudian because it best met all our requirements,” said Fedor Martynenko, lead engineer, Cloud4U. “We particularly liked the fact that it has the industry’s most advanced S3 compatibility and ranked highest for all use cases in Gartner’s 2020 Critical Capabilities for Object Storage report.”
To date, Cloud4U has purchased 1.5 PB of HyperStore software and currently has 2.5 billion objects under management. The company expects this to continue to grow significantly as more customers take advantage of the STaaS offering.
“The Cloudian storage solution has been a great addition to our technology portfolio, enabling us to pursue new business opportunities and deliver more value to our customers,” said Vahtang Darsalia, lead engineer, Cloud4U. “And its limitless scalability means we can easily manage increasing data demands as we grow.”
