SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudian, Inc., the leading provider of hybrid cloud storage solutions, today announced immediate availability of Cloudian HyperStore appliances and Cloudian HyperStore 5.0 software. Flash-optimized, rack-ready HyperStore appliances make it easy to economically deploy full-featured, highly scalable S3-compliant storage with three enterprise-focused configurations.

"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:

The ultra-dense HSA1048 boasts 48TB and is targeted at higher-capacity entry point deployments. It offers petabytes of storage in a standard data center rack. This configuration is a suitable building block for large multimedia content libraries, medical records, data center backups and other big-content applications.

HyperStore appliance for enterprise performance:

The high-performance HSA2060 model is flash-optimized and purpose-built for extreme IO bandwidth requirements. With up to 60TB of capacity in a 2U form factor, it features fast network throughput and hot-pluggable drives to perfectly suit high-performance enterprise environments like media and entertainment, energy, finance and healthcare.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
