ShapeBlue Connector Empowers Cloudian Users to Manage Object Storage within Apache CloudStack
SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 12, 2018 — Cloudian, the innovation leader in enterprise object storage systems, today announced that ShapeBlue, the world’s largest independent integrator of CloudStack technologies, has developed a CloudStack connector plugin for Cloudian’s HyperStore.
The HyperStore Connector is a native open-source Apache CloudStack plugin that integrates Cloudian S3-compatible storage and the Cloudian Management Console (CMC) into the CloudStack Management GUI, allowing CloudStack users to access and manage their own S3 storage areas.
The connector will make it easier for organizations running CloudStack to provide access to S3-compliant object storage with the same user experience as CloudStack, including single sign-on and storage management through the CloudStack UI. Anyone running CloudStack starting with version 4.11, released today, will be able to run the connector without the need to externally install it.
“This gives the CloudStack user community the power of Cloudian’s object storage system through an interface that’s already familiar to them,” said Sanjay Jagad, senior director of product solutions at Cloudian. “Extending access to scale-out storage enables service providers delivering public and private IaaS platforms to offer new storage services that meet their customers’ needs in an era of exploding data volumes.”
“Many major public cloud providers and enterprises leverage Apache CloudStack to deliver reliable, easy-to-deploy, multi-tenant cloud services,” said Giles Sirett, CEO of ShapeBlue. “These organizations need easy-to-manage, highly scalable storage solutions that integrate out of the box, making this solution an ideal fit. Already, a number of joint customers are running HyperStore in CloudStack-powered clouds.”
