  • 1. TECHNICAL  DATA  SHEET Cloudian® is a fully S3 API compliant, multi-tenant, multi-datacenter cloud S3  Compa)ble   storage platform. Cloud Service Providers can use Cloudian to deploy public Cloud  Storage clouds and managed private clouds, and enterprises can use Cloudian to deploy private and hybrid clouds. Cloudian storage is secure, easy to install, infinitely scalable, extremely reliable, and backed by a proven, carrier-grade support team. For  Cloud  Service   Providers  &   Cloudian employs a fully distributed and replicated peer-to-peer architecture with no single point of failure. It easily scales horizontally using commodity hardware Enterprises so deployments can cost effectively start with a few commodity servers in a single datacenter and then scale up as usage increases to thousands of servers Fully   distributed across multiple datacenters managing hundreds of petabytes of data. Interoperable   Cloudians distributed w/  S3  Ecosystem architecture with automatic replication and recovery Scalable  to   services make it highly Hundreds  of  PB   resilient to network and node failures without data loss. across  Regions Similarly, when scaling the storage datacenter cluster or Flexible  Ra)ng   performing maintenance, Plans  &  Billing changes in node availability are automatically detected and existing data rebalanced Comprehensive   without service interruption. Mul)-­‐Tenant   As a multi-tenant solution, Cloudian provides a robust and flexible management Services console and API to facilitate user provisioning, administration, quality of service controls, usage reporting and billing automation along with flexible rating plans Turnkey   to enable a wide range of billing and licensing models. Cloudian is unique in the Installa)on  and   market in a number of ways. Beyond the fact that Cloudian is a comprehensive, 24x7  Support turnkey solution based on NOSQL technology, Cloudian is the only cloud storage solution that is natively tracking AWS S3 in terms of API fidelity and feature coverage.

Cloud  StorageMul)-­‐Tenant   ✓Supports  unlimited  size  objects  scaling  to  hundreds  of  petabytes  of  total  storage.Object  Storage   ✓Manages  billions  of  objects  per  region  and  millions  of  users  across  regions.PlaSorm ✓Works  with  Amazon  Web  Services  (AWS),  CloudStack,  Eucalyptus  and  OpenStack. ✓Turnkey  installa?on  with  24x7  carrier  grade  support.API  Coverage ✓The  most  comprehensive  AWS  S3  feature  set  available  on  the  market   (e.g.  S3  ACLs,  versioning,  mul?-­‐part  upload,  etc).Fully  AWS  S3   ✓Fully  S3  compliant  API  with  100%  matching  error  codes.  Compliant  API ✓Works  with  exis?ng  AWS  S3  SDKs  (Python,  Ruby,  PHP,  Java,  .NET). ✓Use  hundreds  of  exis?ng  S3  ecosystem  tools  and  applica?ons  as  is,  while   controlling  where  your  data  is  stored  (in  public,  private,  or  hybrid  clouds). ✓Provides  full  provisioning  and  management  of  users  and  groups,  ra?ng  plans,  Cloudian   quality  of  service  controls  and  billing.Management  API ✓Enables  ?ght  integra?on  with  customer’s  provisioning,  authen?ca?on  and   billing  systems.Reliability,  Availability  &  Disaster  Recovery ✓Cloudian  distributes  object  replicas  across  nodes  for  data  durability  and  high   availability.  Administrators  configure  the  number  of  replicas  in  order  to  meet   SLA  and  cost  objec?ves.AutomatedData  Replica)on ✓Data  is  automa?cally  rebalanced  as  nodes  are  added  and  removed,  elimina?ng   the  need  for  storage  volume  management  and  manual  file  migra?ons. ✓Automated  failover  ensures  that  server  failure  does  not  impact  the  integrity  or   availability  of  data. ✓Addi?onally  replica?ng  data  across  mul?ple  datacenters  (availability  zones)   further  increases  durability  and  enables  disaster  recovery.Mul)-­‐Datacenter   ✓Reads  and  writes  are  always  performed  at  the  local  datacenter  for  high  Support performance  unless  the  local  datacenter  is  unavailable. ✓Remote  replica?on  is  performed  in  the  background  and  incurs  no   addi?onal  latency. ✓Cloudian  also  supports  mul?ple  regions  to  enable  unlimited  scalability.Mul)-­‐Region   ✓Groups  and  users  are  shared  across  regions  for  authen?ca?on,  while  bucket  Support names  are  unique  across  regions. ✓Data  can  be  placed  in  specific  regions  for  security,  policy,  cost  or  other  reasons.
  • 3. Scalability  &  Performance ✓The  Cloudian  architecture  offers  a  "plug  and  play"  approach  to  scaling  from  two   nodes  to  thousands  of  nodes. ✓Automa?c  data  rebalancing  allows  addi?onal  capacity  to  be  added  any  ?me  Unlimited   so  implementa?ons  can  start  small  and  cost-­‐effec?vely  add  capacity  over  ?me  Scalability based  on  demand. ✓Supports  billions  of  objects  per  region  and  millions  of  users  across  regions. ✓Cloudian  supports  deployment  of  heterogeneous  hardware  so  there  is  no  need   to  replace  older  nodes  as  newer  nodes  are  added  over  ?me. ✓The  Cloudian  architecture  allows  scaling  of  both  throughput  and  storage  capacity.Linear   ✓Large  objects  are  supported  via  mul?-­‐part  upload/download,  breaking  them  up   into  smaller  chunks.Performance ✓Cloudian’s  patent-­‐pending  HyperStore  ensures  good  performance  for  any  size   data  object.Quality  of  Service  Controls  for  SLA  Management ✓Cloudian  has  configurable  QoS  rate  limits,  which  ensures  groups  and  users   do  not  exceed  storage  quota  or  consume  bandwidth  in  a  manner  that  Flexible  QoS   impacts  performance  for  other  tenants.  Controls ✓Group-­‐  and  User-­‐level  control  of  total  storage  (KB),  data  in/out  (e.g.   500,000  KB/min)  and  requests  (e.g.  10,000  requests/min).Versa)le  SLA   ✓Match  datacenter  cluster  performance  and  durability  with  customer  SLAs  Management  to   to  op?mize  cost.Op)mize  Cost ✓Deliver  on  higher  SLAs  by  crea?ng  more  replicas  across  more  datacenters.Configura?on  &  System  Requirements ✓Cloudian  is  designed  to  run  on  a  wide  range  of  commodity  hardware  in  order  Cost  Effec)ve   to  meet  price/performance  requirements.Hardware ✓Each  Cloudian  datacenter  can  leverage  a  heterogeneous  mixture  of  server  types. ✓Cloudian  runs  on  Red  Hat  Enterprise  Linux  and  CentOS  opera?ng  systems.
