Cloudian has launched its Data Management Partners Program.
The program combines various data management products with Cloudian’s scalable storage to address current and future unstructured data growth challenges. Charter members of the Program include Rubrik, Komprise, Evolphin and CTERA Networks.
According to Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2017 report (May 2017), “Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders have identified ‘managing data growth to support business demands’ as the top storage concern for 2017.”
Cloudian’s Data Management Partners Program takes aim at data center capacity storage challenges with solutions that consolidate multiple data silos into a single, scalable environment. Use cases include:
- Data protection: Rubrik and Cloudian together unify and automate backup, instant recovery, replication, global indexed search, archival, compliance and copy data management into a single scale-out fabric across the data center and public cloud.
- Data lifecycle management: Komprise and Cloudian tackle one of the biggest challenges in the data center industry, unstructured data lifecycle management, with solutions that offload non-critical data that is typically 70 percent or more of the footprint from costly Tier-1 NAS to a limitless scalable storage pool.
- Media active archiving: Evolphin and Cloudian help media professionals address capacity-intensive formats (e.g., 4K 8K, VR/360 video) with the performance to handle time-pressed workflows.
- File synch and share: CTERA Networks and Cloudian provide enterprises with tools for collaboration in capacity-rich environments.
“IT managers know the benefits of object storage solutions like Cloudian’s that can cut management workloads by 90 percent in capacity-intensive applications,” said George Crump, senior analyst at Storage Switzerland. “But the question they ask is, ‘How do I get started?’ This program makes it simple and risk-free by doing the validation up front. With this type of integration, I expect to see more enterprise users turning to object storage for their unstructured data consolidation.”
