"Cloudian customers now have the flexibility to choose to create their on-premises hybrid clouds using dedicated Cloudian appliances or by deploying HyperStore 5.0 software across their existing infrastructure," said Paul Turner, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. "Either way, highly available, cost-effective, easy-to-use cloud storage is within easy reach for everyone at a cost of less than one cent per gigabyte per month."

Cloudian HyperStore software, whether deployed on a user's existing hardware or pre-installed on a HyperStore appliance, combines robust availability enhancements with added system management control, monitoring capabilities and reporting. A host of expanded features, including hybrid cloud streaming, virtual nodes, configurable erasure coding, and data compression and encryption help HyperStore set Cloudian apart with highly efficient storage and seamless data management that lets users store and access their data where they want it, when they want it.

"Cloudian can now credibly claim to offer the best combination of software-defined storage and integrated appliances at an attractive price point that is more than competitive with the hyper-scale public clouds," said Simon Robinson, research vice president - storage at 451 Research. "While enterprise IT decision makers are interested in the flexibility and economics that software-defined approaches promise, they also highly value the benefits of an integrated software-hardware solution, especially in terms of ease of installation, management and support."

HyperStore appliance (HSA) configuration for entry-level clouds:

The HyperStore appliance (HSA) 1000 series comes in two models, both in a 1U form factor. The entry-level HSA1024 delivers 24TB of capacity and is perfect for low-throughput workloads and entry-level S3-compatible private cloud storage.

HyperStore appliance configuration for active archives:

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Sometimes I write a blog just to formulate and organize a point of view, and I think it’s time that I pull together the bounty of excellent information about Machine Learning. This is a topic with which business leaders must become comfortable, especially tomorrow’s business leaders (tip for my next semester University of San Francisco business students!). Machine learning is a key capability that will help organizations drive optimization and monetization opportunities, and there have been some...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

For example, using spot instances and co...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor.
