Cloudian Announces Object Storage for VMware vCloud Director
Today Cloudian announced its new fully native S3-compatible object storage solution for VMware Cloud Providers that is managed directly from VMware vCloud Director. Cloudian makes that claim that its new object storage solution will give VMware Cloud Providers a limitlessly scalable, cost-effective and feature-rich storage foundation for delivering new and enhanced value-add services. Customers will be better able to meet their capacity-intensive data protection, management and analytics objectives.
The public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market has been growing rapidly over the last few years with no end in sight. The S3 API is more or less seen as the de facto standard for cloud storage and the common language for integrating on-premises and cloud storage. Cloudian is working with VMware to capitalize on these two phenomena with its new object cloud storage solution. The new solution allows customers to start off where they need and grow over time. The solution has multi-tenant resource pooling, integrated management tools such as billing and quality of service controls, data encryption and Write Once, Read Many (WORM) for security and compliance, and geo-distribution for easily managing storage across multiple data centers.
New benefits and services include:
- Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS).
- Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS).
- Archive-as-a-Service (AaaS).
- Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS).
- Big Data-as-a-Service (BDaaS).
- Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS).
- Software development.
