Cloudian Kubernetes S3 Operator GA
August 31, 2020
noted support for container-based
applications via a new Cloudian Kubernetes
S3 Operator, providing a self-service tool
for developers to dynamically provision
Cloudian HyperStore S3-compatible object
storage. IT managers can now modernize their
storage infrastructure with a
Kubernetes-enabled private cloud solution
that employs the industry-standard S3 API to
maximize application portability. By
combining self-serve, multi-tenant storage
agility with enterprise-grade scalability,
durability and security, Cloudian meets the
needs of both DevOps and production
workloads while delivering TCO savings of
more than 60% compared to both traditional
and public cloud storage. Today’s
announcement extends Cloudian’s support for
cloud-native environments, where it already
serves as a scale-out backup target for open
source Kubernetes applications and data
through software tools such as VMware Velero
and MayaData Kubera.
“As we tell our customers, containers can
clearly help in accelerating digital
transformation, but having a modern storage
solution is essential,” said Seow Lim, vice
president of architecture and platform at
phoenixNAP. “Building on its market
leadership, Cloudian is bringing all the
benefits of true enterprise-level object
storage to Kubernetes users, along with the
agility and portability that are key to
Enterprise-grade security – Features include encryption, IAM, SAML, WORM, RBAC and certification with the most rigorous regulatory requirements, such as Common Criteria, FIPS and SEC Rule 17a-4(f).
Exabyte scalability – Starting from just three nodes and scaling up to an exabyte without interruption.
Multi-site and multi-cloud support – Scale across multiple sites with single-namespace simplicity or extend into the public cloud using out-of-the-box integration with AWS, GCP and Azure that maintains data in its native format.
Cost-effectiveness – Savings of more than
60% over traditional SAN and NAS systems and
public cloud offerings.
