Cloudian HyperStore and Exabuilder Solution Brief


Published on

Most IT organizations are faced with a flat to declining storage budget and are forced to manage the ever increasing storage with the same or reduced IT resources. A drastic change in storage infrastructure is needed if enterprise IT is ever going to tame the data explosion. Cloudian and Exabuilder are changing the game.

Cloudian HyperStore and Exabuilder Solution Brief

  1. 1. THE ULTIMATE ANSWER TO CLOUD STORAGE HIGHLIGHTS • Hybrid cloud storage software for service providers & enterprises • Seamless scalability from a few Terabytes to hundreds of Petabytes • Complete S3 API coverage with full support for all S3 ecosystem apps • Dynamic data tiering to tape/spin-down disks • Multi-tenancy, advanced QoS, performance monitoring, usage reporting, billing and flexible rating plans • NFS support for easy integration with enterprises applications • Easy out-of-the-box installation ENTERPRISE USES CASES • Enterprise backup • Long term archiving • Disaster recovery • Multi-tier private cloud storage SERVICE PROVIDERS USES CASES • Multi-SLA cloud storage services THE NEW CHALLENGES OF DATA STORAGE With the popularity of rich media, the proliferation of mobile devices and the digitization of content, there has been an exponential growth in the amount of unstructured data that IT is managing—and this growth is not slowing but instead accelerating. This unprecedented growth in unstructured content is simply not sustainable for current NAS/SAN infrastructures. In fact, the whole storage system is breaking down. Backups & restores are taking longer. Migrations from older storage systems to new storage systems are labor intensive. And the list goes on and on. Not only does all of this unstructured data increase the cost of managing the infrastructure, it also impacts the internal consumers of storage. Most IT organizations are faced with a flat to declining storage budget and are forced to manage the ever increasing storage with the same or reduced IT resources. A drastic change in storage infrastructure is needed if enterprise IT is ever going to tame the data explosion. Cloudian and Exabuilder are changing the game. SOLUTION Fortunately, “Web 2.0“ consumer-facing companies such as Facebook and Amazon faced this same storage challenge a few years back. To address these challenges, they developed a new storage infrastructure using commodity hardware called object storage. Cloudian and Exabuilder object storage software are based on the same principles as these successful deployments while addressing enterprises’ challenges associated with scalability and ease-of-use by fundamentally changing the way storage is managed. BENEFITS Using object storage has changed enterprise customers’ lives, saving them time and money while increasing performance and peace of mind. Some of the main benefits of using Cloudian and Exabuilder to build your own private storage cloud include: • Reduce storage acquisition costs by using high- density commodity servers and the most cost effective storage to build a private storage cloud • Reduce cost of managing storage environment by eliminating backups, volume/LUN management, costly data migrations, etc. • Enjoy a wide choice of Amazon Web Service (AWS) S3 compatible complementary applications ranging from backup and recovery, file sync and share, archiving, etc. • Know that Cloudian and Exabuilder can grow with you as you start small (Terabytes) and easily expand to Petabytes as unstructured data grows • Balance cost & service level agreements (SLAs) using flexible multi-datacenter and multi device capabilities Cloudian Inc.I Metro Center Tower I 950 Tower Lane I suite 300 I Foster City, CA 94404 I USA I
