Modernize Your Storage

Containerized applications require storage that’s agile and scalable. The Cloudian Kubernetes S3 Operator (available now on GitHub) provides an easy way to access exabyte-scalable Cloudian storage from your Kubernetes-based applications. Built on the S3 API, Cloudian lets you dynamically or statically provision object storage with this lightweight Operator using S3 APIs. You get cloud-like storage access in your own data center.

Storage for Kubernetes that is S3 compatible

S3 API for Application Portability

Designed from the ground up as a native-S3 API platform, Cloudian offers the industry’s most complete S3 API compatibility.  This eliminates lock-in and enhances application portability, so you can write code once then deploy it where it’s needed. Plus, you get fast, self-serve storage access using the standard Kubernetes Persistent Volume (PV) and Persistent Volume Claim (PVC) methodology to provision assets. This is storage for Kubernetes that’s agile and standards-based.

Multi-tenancy for Shared Storage

Share your private cloud among multiple use cases and operating environments. Cloudian’s secure multi-tenancy lets you create separate namespaces and self-serve management environments for development and production users. Each tenant’s environment is isolated, with data invisible to other tenants. Performance can be managed, too, with integrated quality of services (QoS) controls.

Hybrid Cloud-Enabled

Bring your on-prem and cloud worlds together. Cloudian’s integrated public cloud data management tools make it easy to replicate or migrate data to AWS, GCP, or Azure. Data stored to the cloud is always stored in that cloud’s native format, meaning that it’s directly accessible to cloud-based applications. There’s no lock-in. Manage data among clouds, too, making data accessible wherever it is needed, without the complexity of a separate management layer.

S3-Compatible Storage for VMware Cloud Foundation

Cloudian brings enterprise-grade S3-compatible object storage to VMware Cloud Foundation, allowing customers to deploy Cloudian HyperStore on VMware vSphere cluster and leverage underlying vSAN disks for storage of object data. The integrated solution will allow IT operators to modernize their storage infrastructure to meet the requirements of any application on a unified storage platform, at scale, on-prem, and in the cloud, delivering better performance and availability at lower TCO.

Span the Globe with Geo-Distribution

To keep performance up and latency down, applications require access to local storage. If you need to manage that storage and data across multiple sites, you know this can be a challenge. Cloudian solves this problem with a distributed architecture that lets you put data anywhere you need it. From a single screen, manage the integrated replication and striping tools to put data near the applications.

Verified Security and Data Immutability

compliance certificationMany data types have uncompromising, highly regulated security requirements. Cloudian supports this with the broadest array of security certifications in object storage. In addition to FIPS and Common Criteria certifications, Cloudian is certified compliant with SEC Rule 17a-4(f), FINRA Rule 4511(c), and CFTC 17 CFR § 1.31(c)- (d). And Cloudian offers S3 API-controlled data immutability, certified to meet regulatory requirements for non-rewritable media.

Data Protection for Kubernetes

To preserve the benefits of Kubernetes, small, loosely coupled teams typically manage loosely coupled workloads.

Kubera from MayaData is the first solution to extend this simple, per-workload management of data to backup and disaster recovery.
