The HyperStore object storage platform from Cloudian has achieved AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. 

As a result, AWS Outposts customers can now employ on-premises Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)-compatible storage to serve use cases that demand data residency and low-latency data access. Deployed alongside AWS Outposts in a data centre, Cloudian gives customers exabyte-scalable storage to support modern applications.

HyperStore delivers native Amazon S3 API compatibility, cloud-like flexibility and geo-distribution that enables customers to manage data globally across multiple sites within a single namespace. It also offers modular scalability with users able to start with three nodes and expand to exabytes without interruption simply by adding devices to the cluster. All data is stored locally, ensuring compliance with data governance regulations, while the Amazon S3 Object Lock feature prevents malware from encrypting data, enabling quick, easy recovery of an unencrypted backup copy without paying ransom.

“We’ve been a Cloudian customer for many years, using its Amazon S3-compatible storage platform to manage and protect video data and digital evidence on-premises while taking advantage of its seamless integration with Amazon S3 to move data between the two environments,” said Adrian Quintela, information technology director at the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office.

“AWS Outposts brings AWS hardware, services, APIs and tools to customers’ data centres, addressing the need for better ways to store and manage data across the enterprise,” said Joshua Burgin, general manager, AWS Outposts, AWS. “With Cloudian’s HyperStore solution – already deployed at leading organisations around the world – we’re expanding the workloads AWS Outposts serves by enabling on-prem, S3-compatible storage that meets data residency and latency requirements.”

“Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage was architected from day 1 to allow customers to experience the efficiency of a private cloud storage infrastructure within their own data centres,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “We’re excited about working with AWS to give AWS Outposts users answers to their data residency, latency and scalability requirements with a simple, proven solution. As a result, customers will be better positioned to bring more modern applications on-premises to drive greater business and operational success.”

AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs and tools to virtually any data centre, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a consistent hybrid experience.
