Your Nutanix-powered private cloud provides fast, Tier 1 storage for the information you use every day. But what about the information that’s less frequently used, or requires more capacity than your Nutanix cluster has to spare? Cloudian HyperStore is petabyte-scalable, on-prem object storage for unstructured data. It employs the S3 interface, so most applications that include public cloud connectivity will work with HyperStore. Like Nutanix, HyperStore is a scale-out cluster. When you need more capacity you simply add nodes. All capacity resides within a single namespace, so it remains easy to manage. Key features of Cloudian HyperStore include:
► 100% native S3 interface, so it works with most cloud-enabled applications
► Scales from TBs to PBs without disruption
► Fourteen-nines data durability with erasure coding and replication
► 70% less cost than traditional NAS
Scalable Storage for Data-Intensive Applications
Cloudian HyperStore’s scalability and exceptional data durability make it ideal for use cases such as:
► Backup and archive: Scalable backup target, compatible with Veritas, Commvault, Veeam, and Rubrik data protection solutions
► Media and entertainment: HyperStore provides an active archive that’s 100X faster to access than tape, and 30% the cost of NAS; compatible with most media asset managers.
► File management: Offload Tier 1 NAS to extend capacity with zero user disruption
► Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning: Combine Internet of Things (IoT) applications, recognition, identification and control through Machine Learning and Deep Learning and turn Big Data into Smart Data, delivering instant value that can lead to real time benefits.
HyperStore is guaranteed compatible with all applications that support the S3 interface, the same interface used by AWS and Google GCP. Think of HyperStore as hyperconverged storage, bringing together multiple data types to one, super-scalable pool.
Multiple Deployment Options
Choose from multiple HyperStore deployment options including:
HyperStore within your Nutanix cluster: Run HyperStore software on a Nutanix VM and store data to your Nutanix disk. No additional hardware required. A fast, cost-effective way to get started or to develop S3-enabled applications. You can download a free trial here.
HyperStore as a stand-alone appliance: Deploy HyperStore appliances in your data center for high-capacity, cost effective storage. Locate all nodes locally, or spread them out across multiple locations for distributed storage.
Nutanix is the perfect platform for your frequently used or performance-sensitive data. For everything else, there’s Cloudian. To learn more about our work with Nutanix, come find us at Nutanix .NEXT Europe 2017, booth G7.
Additionally, I will be presenting why data is the new oil and how you can extract value from the data you already have. I will examine tools and techniques to consolidate unstructured data to a Cloudian active archive where you can learn from that data, simplify achieving GDPR (and other regulatory compliances) and how you can enable Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence. November 9th, 13:05-13:35.
I look forward to see you in Nice!
