Cloudian Object Storage Certified By Storage Made Easy

Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage has been certified for use with the File Fabric M-Stream file transfer acceleration technology made by Storage Made Easy.

Storage Made Easy is the trading name of Vehera, a UK based company which provides a multi-cloud data management and data protection product called the File Fabric.

M-Stream file transfer acceleration is a technology that forms part of the Enterprise version of File Fabric and is designed - says the company - to meet the need for faster data movement by maximizing network bandwidth and providing access to large file assets up to ten times faster.

“Integration with the M-Stream technology, enables not only faster Cloudian uploads, but also faster downloads enabling accelerated copying of very large files from Cloudian HyperStore to users desktops,” explains Jim Liddle, Storage Made Easy CEO. “The M-Stream technology not only speeds up files to and from users desktops, but it can also enable files to be tiered into, or out of, Cloudian to other storage subsystems, be they on-cloud or on-premises, at vastly accelerated speeds.”

Cloudian HyperStore is said to provide “exabyte-scalable, highly resilient, fully S3-compatible object storage” with integrated file support and cloud connectivity. This combo allows users to merge on-premises and cloud computing to create a single storage pool.  M-Stream splits large files into pieces, sent in parallel over multiple streams, and reassembles the pieces back into a contiguous file or object at the target. The idea is to improve the end user transfers to local or remote desktops via native plugins for Mac, Windows, and all major web browsers.

Sanjay Jagad, Senior Director of Products and Solutions at Cloudian, said, “In today’s 24x7 world, users must be able to access their data quickly and easily whenever and wherever needed, but that gets more and more difficult in the face of continued data growth – particularly in the case of large media files. The combination of M-Stream and HyperStore addresses this challenge, giving customers a cost-effective solution that delivers the high performance, capacity and scalability they need to meet evolving data management and protection demands.”
