Cisco and Cloudian have partnered to create an integrated scale-out Enterprise Object Storage solution, with Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers running Cloudian HyperStore software. This new Cisco Validated Design (CVD) solution is available today to support data-driven enterprises manage the exponential growth in data volume.

The Cisco UCS servers recently established 7 new world records on industry benchmarks with the 2nd generation Intel Xeon scalable processors. Cisco UCS S-Series Storage servers offer a modular platform that delivers scalability and performance to match the size of your active data sets and the processing needs of your data intensive workloads. UCS Management significantly reduces management and administrative expenses by automating routine tasks to increase operational agility.

Cloudian HyperStore 7 was awarded 2018 Product of the Year in the “Software-defined and Cloud Storage” category of TechTarget’s Storage Magazine and the 2018 SearchStorage.com Products of the Year awards. Cloudian HyperStore is also the #1 rated object storage company on Gartner Peer Insights.

Cloudian HyperStore is an S3-compatible and limitlessly scalable object storage for geographically distributed sites and is hybrid and multicloud ready. Ideal as a capacity data storage tier, HyperStore is designed with a single global name space across all locations, including public cloud, providing a unified view and management of all your data. Flexible data protection options of erasure coding and replication can be implemented at a fine grain, bucket-level that allows users to minimize risk of data loss while enjoying high storage efficiency.

Cisco Validated Design of the Cloudian HyperStore 7.1.2 running on Cisco UCS S-Series Storage Server, published in January 2019 provides a validated architecture and serves as a guide for deploying the joint object storage solution expeditiously and with confidence, reducing the risk and eliminating any guesswork.

This Cisco-Cloudian solution can serve as a storage target for multiple use cases including backup & recovery, active archive, media & entertainment, healthcare imaging, life sciences, video surveillance, among others. With integrated multi-tenancy, QoS and billing, this solution is also ideal for service providers and enterprises who would like to offer associated services such as Storage-as-a-Service and Backup-as-a-Service.

In summary, the Cisco UCS S-Series storage servers powered by the Cloudian HyperStore meet customer demands for scalability and performance of a variety of data-intensive application workloads.
