IaaS provider selects Cloudian for best S3-API compatibility, easy integration with tools
SAN MATEO, Calif. – July 20, 2017 – Cloudian, Inc., a global leader in hybrid cloud object storage systems, today announced that ThinkOn, a wholesale infrastructure-as-a-service provider in Toronto, Canada is using Cloudian object storage solutions to expand storage management resources for its hosted Commvault storage services.
ThinkOn and its group of more than 65 reseller partners help customers leverage cloud-based technology to maximize compute, network and storage resources. It selected Cloudian after its original object storage software provider experienced technical issues. After reviewing multiple object storage solutions, ThinkOn licensed 200TBs of Cloudian storage capacity for five data centers spread across Toronto, Montreal and Calgary.
Craig McLellan, founder of ThinkOn, said the company selected Cloudian because it offered the best S3 API on the market and provided the easiest integration with its management tools, including the company’s resource monitoring and orchestration systems. With its storage services alignment activities, the company is planning for rapid growth and expansion to new markets, including medical imaging and archiving services.
“Cloudian technology has been instrumental in growing our S3-compatible object storage services. Before we deployed Cloudian, our S3-compatible storage footprint growth was modest. Now we’re more than doubling it every year,” McLellan said. “With Cloudian, we continue to solidify our service delivery infrastructure and accelerate the growth of our customer base. Our business opportunities for object storage are bigger than they’ve ever been.”
“Cloudian object storage creates new opportunities for resellers and service providers who want to capitalize on the growing demand for S3-compatible storage services,” said Jon Toor, CMO of Cloudian. “Our guaranteed compatibility with leading S3-enabled backup solutions including Veritas, Commvault, and Rubrik lets customers expand their business with new services such as data protection and archive. Cloudian offers industry-leading S3 interoperability, making it the ideal platform for any organization to build its cloud-based storage business.”
