Cloudian Launches Technology Partner Program to Address Data Centers' Explosive Unstructured Data Growth

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 25, 2017) - Cloudian, the innovation leader in enterprise object storage systems, today launched its Data Management Partners Program. The Program combines leading data management products with Cloudian's infinitely scalable storage to offer tested and proven solutions that enable enterprises to address current and future unstructured data growth challenges. Charter members of the Program include Rubrik, Komprise, Evolphin, and CTERA Networks.

"With unstructured data growing more than 50 percent each year, IT managers need effortlessly scalable solutions rather than temporary fixes. This new partner ecosystem delivers proven solutions for biggest capacity challenges, such as data protection, file management, and media archiving," said Michael Tso, CEO and co-founder of Cloudian. "Our customers can easily deploy these solutions to immediately simplify their infrastructure and save 70 percent on capacity costs, while delivering a long-term scalable solution for their data management needs."

According to Gartner's Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2017 report (May 2017), "Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders have identified 'managing data growth to support business demands' as the top storage concern for 2017."

Cloudian's Data Management Partners Program directly addresses data center capacity storage challenges with tested and proven solutions that consolidate multiple data silos into a single, infinitely scalable environment. The Program's focus is to simplify data center operations and reduce costs. Its charter Program members address various data use cases including:

  • Data protection: Rubrik and Cloudian together unify and automate backup, instant recovery, replication, global indexed search, archival, compliance, and copy data management into a single scale-out fabric across the data center and public cloud. 
  • Data lifecycle management: Komprise and Cloudian tackle one of the biggest challenges in the data center industry, unstructured data lifecycle management, with solutions that offload non-critical data that is typically 70%+ of the footprint from costly Tier-1 NAS to a limitless scalable storage pool.
  • Media active archiving: Evolphin and Cloudian help media professionals address capacity-intensive formats (e.g., 4k, 8k, VR/360) with the performance to handle time-pressed workflows.
  • File synch and share: CTERA Networks and Cloudian provide enterprises with tools for collaboration in capacity-rich environments.

George Crump, Senior Analyst at Storage Switzerland, commented, "IT managers know the benefits of object storage solutions like Cloudian's that can cut management workloads by 90 percent in capacity-intensive applications. But the question they ask is, 'How do I get started?' This program makes it simple and risk-free by doing the validation up front. With this type of integration, I expect to see more enterprise users turning to object storage for their unstructured data consolidation."
