Sovereign Private Cloud Storage

Sovereign Private Cloud Storage

Building a Sovereign Cloud with Cloudian

Data sovereignty and sovereign clouds have taken on a new significance in the world today. As organizations around the world generate troves of data, they are keenly aware of the need to comply with the sovereignty laws of the land where this data resides

The need for compliance creates a complicated patchwork of requirements. Data hosted in a particular country should be under that country’s jurisdiction, not a foreign entity. It is also essential to consider the privacy laws in the country where the data was collected. Beyond that, there are the organization’s own requirements for data privacy, data residency, data protection and data security.

Given this complexity, it is no surprise that organizations are increasingly working with service providers to help them implement data security and data protection measures, and to help navigate regulations to ensure compliance with data privacy legislation. This presents an opportunity for cloud providers to meet this demand with end-to-end cloud services that are scalable, cost effective, and secure.


With Cloudian technology, xSPs can gain competitive advantage by helping customers take control of their data with comprehensive data sovereignty strategies and fully compliant sovereign clouds.

VMware provides validated designs which act as blueprints for xSPs for building and operating cloud infrastructure that can meet sovereignty needs while allowing for a wide range of cloud services offerings. Cloudian object storage management is integrated into VMware Cloud Director, offering durable, scalable, and feature-rich storage that lets xSPs deploy and manage S3-compatible storage within their services environment. Cloudian features the industry’s most compatible S3-API, with a fully native implementation that eliminates gateways and access layers, making it a perfect match for highly secure, sovereign cloud environments built with VMware.

Data Sovereignty Requirements for xSPs outside United States

As organizations generate exponential volumes of unstructured data, it’s important for Managed Service Providers and/or Cloud Service Providers (xSPs) to be able to offer broad, end-to-end cloud services that are scalable, cost effective, and secure.

This in-depth white paper covers the 5 most important things xSPs outside the USA need to know about their data in the era of sovereign cloud:

  • Privacy
  • Residency
  • Sovereignty
  • Protection & Management
  • Security

Data needs to be stored on-premises in the country it was collected to be protected by national laws. For this purpose, object storage is a more affordable, scalable solution than block or file. xSPs also need to embed data protection into the cloud stack with backup, encryption, and micro- segmentation capabilities to secure workloads.

Data Lakehouse-as-a-Service for Sovereign VMware Cloud

Modern analytics applications have evolved in the public cloud. However, where data sovereignty is a concern, organizations have not been able to take advantage of many of these analytics paradigm shifts

Therefore, Enterprises that need to maintain data sovereignty often look to Managed Service Providers to help them modernize analytics while maintaining data sovereignty, security, and privacy.

There is a huge opportunity to combine the scale and efficiency of S3 data lakes with the data management and ACID transactions of data warehouses and offer a sovereign Data Lakehouse as a Service that is secure, affordable, and scalable.

Cloudian HyperStore is an on-prem S3 Data Lake that integrates with VMware Greenplum, an analytics tool built on open standards. This combination is made for xSP success, with multi-tenancy, billing, metering, and the ability to expand to petabyte scale on-demand.
