Cloudian® is a Silicon Valley-based file and object storage company specializing in S3 API storage systems. With technology roots in the large-scale enterprise message space, Cloudian introduced its object-based platform, HyperStore®, in 2011. Cloudian products are offered by partners including Amazon, Lenovo, Cisco, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and QCT, and by reseller partners worldwide.
Unlike the expensive, complex, and proprietary object storage products which came before it, Cloudian’s technology allows all sizes and types of users to realize the benefits of object storage in their own data centers.
Data center managers, broadcasters, researchers, and software developers need solutions to help them contend with the explosive growth in unstructured data. Across all industries – from media, to medical, to industrial – new applications, formats, and technologies are driving this rapid increase of data, creating issues around storage costs and complexity. An affordable, highly-scalable, easy-to-use storage system was needed.
First, the revolutionary new solution needed to be built on a widely accepted API which software developers would embrace. Amazon’s S3-API was rapidly becoming the de facto object storage standard.
Next, the solution demanded a highly scalable platform. Cloudian already had such a platform — the company’s genesis was in the world of large-scale wireless messaging systems with Gemini Mobile, an innovator in the design and deployment of the first mobile messaging platforms. Cloudian built a platform to meet these needs and requirements and launched the HyperStore object storage solution in 2011.
Cloudian’s most recent achievement towards the vision to revolutionize enterprise storage is the launch of Cloudian HyperFile®, the industry’s first object storage-based file solution to combine full enterprise-class NAS feature set and scale-out performance, saving companies 70% TCO vs traditional NAS.
