Appistry CloudIQ Storage Now Generally Available

Appistry, the enterprise cloud platform leader, today announced the general availability of Appistry CloudIQ Storage and Appistry CloudIQ Storage Hadoop Edition. In addition, the company announced the release of version 4.3 of its flagship Appistry CloudIQ Platform.

Appistry CloudIQ Storage is software that creates a scalable, reliable and highly cost-effective file storage system with no single points of failure, using only commodity servers and networking. Hadoop Edition adds plug-and-play compatibility with the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).

Appistry CloudIQ Platform 4.3, in addition to providing support for CloudIQ Storage, adds new APIs for log file, user and group management and includes a number of performance enhancements and bug fixes.

The new products are available for free and immediate download from Appistry’s Peer2Peer community portal at

Product Overview:

CloudIQ Storage may be used as a stand-alone distributed storage system or in conjunction with Appistry CloudIQ Engine to enable Computational Storage™, which unifies applications and data to deliver unprecedented price-performance for data-intensive applications. Plug-and-play compatibility with the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) offers an easy upgrade for Hadoop users with mission-critical requirements.

New CloudIQ Platform 4.3 features include:

  • Enhanced service logging: Managing log files across a distributed environment is typically a tedious process that grows in complexity with the number of systems being managed. Appistry CloudIQ Manager now simplifies the logging of events generated while managing the lifecycle of services and applications, and makes log data easily accessible via new REST APIs.
  • New user and group APIs: Appistry CloudIQ Platform 4.3 adds new REST APIs for managing users and groups, allowing administrators and developers to more easily create automated provisioning solutions and 3rd party tools.
  • Faster application and service deployments, upgrades: Package deployments and upgrades in version 4.3 are now much faster, saving administrator and developer time.
