Transcript of "Cloudian Object Storage For Red Hat OpenStack Platform Solution Brief"

  1. 1. CLOUDIAN  OBJECT  STORAGE  FOR  RED  HAT  OPENSTACK  PLATFORM   A  COST-­‐EFFECTIVE  AND  SCALABLE  CLOUD  STORAGE  SOLUTION   The   growth   in   unstructured   data,   combined   with   the   rapid   adop5on   of   virtualiza5on   and   mobile   technologies,   has   created   a   perfect   storm   for   open   hybrid   cloud   storage   that   is   disrup5ng   tradi5onal   IT.   Managing   large   numbers   of   servers   and   storage   farms   using   legacy   approaches   is   inefficient,   resource   intensive   and   cost   prohibi5ve.   Cloudian®   storage   solu5ons   for   Red   Hat   OpenStack®   PlaGorm   simplify   the   management  and  deployment  of  large  cloud  infrastructures.   Cloudian  HyperStore®  is  a  pre-­‐packaged  drop-­‐in  object  storage  solu5on  for  Red  Hat  OpenStack  which  is  easy   to  install,  configure  and  use.  Cloudian  HyperStore  soKware  is  op5mized  for  many  different  workloads  (small/ large  file,  small/large  datasets),  and  it  is  fully  Amazon  S3-­‐compliant  for  interoperability  with  all  the  exis5ng   applica5ons  in  the  Amazon  S3  ecosystem.  By  using  Cloudian  as  secondary  storage,  Red  Hat  OpenStack  virtual   machine  images  and  snapshots  can  reap  all  the  benefits  associated  with  Cloudian  HyperStore  technology  and   users   can   easily   share   data   between   projects   and   virtual   machine   instances   directly   from   the   OpenStack   management  console  and  command  line.     In  addi5on,  Red  Hat  OpenStack  users  can  take  advantage  of  auto-­‐5ering  to  Amazon  S3/Glacier,  mul5  data   center   and   mul5   region   support,   erasure   coding   data   protec5on   and   the   comprehensive   mul5-­‐tenant   services  that  only  the  Cloudian  Hyperstore  soKware  provides,  including:  administra5on,  quality  of  service   (QoS),  usage  repor5ng,  and  billing.     Cloudian  Inc.I  Metro  Center  Tower  I  950  Tower  Lane  I  suite  300  I  Foster  City,  CA  94404  I  USA  I  Email:  info@cloudian.com  |  www.cloudian.com   SOLUTION  BRIEF   INTEGRATION  POINTS   ©2014  Cloudian,  Inc.  Cloudian,  the  Cloudian  logo,  and  HyperStore  are  registered  trademarks  or  trademarks  of  Cloudian,  Inc.  All  other  trademarks  are  property  of  their  respec5ve  holders.  
  2. 2. GLANCE  INTEGRATION   Glance   supports   storing   and   retrieving   virtual   machine   images   and   snapshots   to   S3-­‐compa5ble   object   storage.  Cloudian  extends  this  support  by  implemen5ng  the  S3  Mul5part  Upload  API  so  that  objects  larger   than  5GB  can  be  stored.  Cloudian  HyperStore  soKware  also  automa5cally  protects  virtual  machine  images,   templates,   and   snapshots   by   replica5ng   them   across   data   centers,   thereby   providing   extra   levels   of   protec5on  in  case  of  catastrophic  failures.   HORIZON  INTEGRATION   Cloudian  adds  a  per-­‐project  budon  in  Cloudian  Data  Explorer.  Clicking  the  budon  securely  logs  the  project   into  Cloudian  HyperStore  via  Single-­‐Sign-­‐On  technology  and  displays  Cloudian  Data  Explorer  embedded  in   the  Horizon  management  console  where  Red  Hat  OpenStack  users  can  directly  upload  and  download  shared   data.   KEYSTONE  INTEGRATION   Cloudian  enhances  Keystone  so  that  crea5ng  and  dele5ng  a  Red  Hat  OpenStack  project  directly  provisions   and  de-­‐provisions  a  Cloudian  user  for  that  project.  This  allows  for  easy  sharing  of  buckets  and  objects  within   the   same   project   and   between   different   projects   by   using   explicit   sharing   rules.   In   addi5on,   for   projects   already  exis5ng  in  a  Red  Hat  OpenStack  installa5on,  a  Cloudian  user  will  be  automa5cally  provisioned  the   first  5me  he/she  uses  Cloudian  Data  Explorer  in  the  Horizon  management  console.   ABOUT  RED  HAT,  INC.   Red  Hat  is  the  world's  leading  provider  of  open  source  soKware  solu5ons,  using  a  community-­‐powered  approach  to   reliable  and  high-­‐performing  cloud,  Linux,  middleware,  storage  and  virtualiza5on  technologies.  Red  Hat  also  offers   award-­‐winning  support,  training,  and  consul5ng  services.  As  the  connec5ve  hub  in  a  global  network  of  enterprises,   partners,  and  open  source  communi5es,  Red  Hat  helps  create  relevant,  innova5ve  technologies  that  liberate  resources   for  growth  and  prepare  customers  for  the  future  of  IT.  Learn  more  at  www.redhat.com.   ABOUT  CLOUDIAN,  INC.   Cloudian,  Inc.  is  the  leading  provider  of  hybrid  cloud  storage  soKware.  Cloudian  is  headquartered  in  Foster  City,   California,  and  has  offices  in  Tokyo,  Japan  and  Beijing,  China.  The  main  product  is  Cloudian  Hyperstore,  an  Amazon  100%   S3  compliant  cloud  object  storage  plaGorm  that  enables  service  providers  and  enterprises  to  build  reliable,  affordable   and  scalable  cloud  storage  solu5ons.  It  ensures  seamless  S3  integra5on,  simple  data  migra5on,  and  unfedered  use  of   the  vast  ecosystem  of  the  Amazon  Web  Services  (AWS)  S3  applica5ons.  Cloudian  HyperStore  is  the  ideal  scale-­‐out   solu5on  for  eternal  storage,  providing  economical  enterprise  backup,  long  term  archiving,  sync  and  share  and  file   storage.  For  more  informa5on  or  to  try  Cloudian  HyperStore  today,  please  visit  www.cloudian.com.   STORAGE  INFRASTRUCTURE  AND  AGILITY  FOR  ENTERPRISE  IT     Cloudian  Inc.I  Metro  Center  Tower  I  950  Tower  Lane  I  suite  300  I  Foster  City,  CA  94404  I  USA  I  Email:  info@cloudian.com  |  www.cloudian.com   JOINT  SOLUTION  HIGHLIGHTS   Cloudian  provides  a  cost-­‐effec5ve  and  scalable  storage  solu5on  for  Red  Hat  OpenStack  which  is  easy   to  use,  op5mized  for  many  different  workloads,  and  fully  Amazon  S3  compliant  for  interoperability   with  exis5ng  applica5ons  in  the  Amazon  S3  ecosystem.  Key  features  of  the  solu5on  include:   •         Backup  images  and  snapshots  to  scalable  mul5-­‐tenant  hybrid  object  storage  solu5on   •         Shared  data  between  user  projects  and  virtual  machine  instances   •         Built-­‐in  advanced  data  protec5on  features  such  as  versioning,  replica5on,  and  erasure  coding   •         Disaster  recovery  using  mul5-­‐datacenter,  mul5-­‐region,  rack-­‐aware  and  site-­‐aware  replica5on   ©2014  Cloudian,  Inc.  Cloudian,  the  Cloudian  logo,  and  HyperStore  are  registered  trademarks  or  trademarks  of  Cloudian,  Inc.  All  other  trademarks  are  property  of  their  respec5ve  holders.
