The data revolution is upon us. Organizations in every industry generate exponentially more volumes of unstructured data than ever before. They also need to retain, re-use, and learn from that data to a far greater extent. Add to this the need to ensure protection, compliance and security, and it becomes apparent that having limitlessly scalable, intelligent, affordable storage is an increasingly important component of a company’s long-term success.
For cloud service providers, this opens the door to new services revenue streams by offering a portfolio of new high value storage based services for use cases such as data protection, big data, healthcare, media archives, video surveillance, and more. For their tenant customers, this delivers best-in-class object storage services fully integrated and delivered through their preferred cloud management platform.
That’s where Cloudian object storage comes in. Cloudian Object Storage for vCloud Director is a storage platform that lets VMware cloud providers and their tenant users deploy, manage and consume S3-compatible storage within their vCD services environment to address these increasingly important needs.
