Cloudian and Cisco Partner to Release Solution for Transitioning to the Hybrid Cloud

Cloudian, an object storage provider, is releasing a Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for Cloudian HyperStore on the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) platform.

The CVD reflects the companies’ expanded collaboration in providing best-of-breed infrastructure solutions for modernizing enterprise data centers, including accelerating the transition to hybrid cloud.

Cisco customers will now be able to capitalize fully on Cloudian’s software-defined, limitlessly scalable, and highly cost-effective storage that bridges public and private cloud environments.

As a CVD, the new Cloudian-Cisco solution has been designed, tested, and documented to facilitate faster, more reliable deployments of a storage cluster.

As a result, customers in highly data-intensive industries such as media and entertainment, video surveillance, healthcare and scientific research can more quickly and easily lay the foundation for maximizing the value of their digital assets.

The Cloudian HyperStore architecture is specifically designed for cloud infrastructures, with the industry’s best S3 compatibility, enabling seamless data management across public and private cloud environments.

This unique integration also gives organizations the flexibility to utilize different public cloud providers, thereby avoiding vendor lock-in. In addition to hybrid and multi-cloud data management, other HyperStore benefits include:

  • Modular and limitless scalability
  • Geo-distribution
  • Multi-tenancy
  • Up to 70% cost savings

“The combination of Cloudian’s industry-leading object storage software and Cisco’s storage-optimized compute platform provides an ideal foundation for a private or hybrid cloud infrastructure,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “We’re excited about expanding our relationship with Cisco and providing joint data management solutions that enable customers to achieve their business or mission objectives.”
