ENTERPRISE-GRADE fully native S3-compatible object storage for containerized applications

Rise of Kubernetes and Cloud Native Applications

As enterprises increasingly adopt Kubernetes and deploy modern, cloud-native applications, there is a need to ensure associated storage is also modernized and up-to-date. Because containers were designed for the cloud, they break many of the rules associated with traditional storage access.

Kubernetes applications require cloud-like storage access, similar to what they would see in the public cloud. In other words, to have storage in your data center that acts like storage in the cloud.

Solution

Cloudian’s enterprise-grade, fully native, S3-compatible object storage software integrated with Red Hat OpenShift enables new efficiencies by allowing enterprises to run modern, cloud-native applications, both on-prem and in private and public clouds. The solution extends HyperStore’s simple-to-deploy and easy-to-manage, exabyte scalable, highly secure, multi-tenant storage to modern applications.

Cloudian runs as a container within Red Hat OpenShift, providing industry standard object storage for your container applications. The result is self-service storage access in a cloudlike infrastructure.

This allows IT operators to modernize their storage infrastructure, accelerate innovation and improve time-to-market with enhanced application portability. They will be able to quickly respond to developer needs and deploy modern, stateful applications easily, while developers will be able to dynamically scale associated resources as their applications scale.
