Cloudian Partners with Komprise to Provide Cure for Common Cold Storage Problem Allowing Customers to Recover 60 Percent of Tier 1 NAS Capacity

Last week, Cloudian, Inc., a global leader in enterprise object storage systems, and Komprise, the industry-leader in intelligent data management, revealed a joint solution that enables customers to move dormant or infrequently used data to an on-premise active archive and reclaim more than half of their Tier 1 Network-Attached Storage (NAS) capacity.

This innovative solution uses the Komprise data management software to identify inactive NAS data and then transparently move it to an on-premises Cloudian scale-out storage device. All data remains in the data center and customer-defined policies - date age, frequency of use and file type - determine which data should be tiered.

 "Organizations have to contend with cold or infrequently accessed data that can occupy more than 60 percent of their most costly NAS resources. Our joint solution enables customers to move cold data to an onsite active archive to be transparently accessed when needed, with zero impact to the user experience," said Jon Toor, Cloudian's chief marketing officer.

Enterprise customers and service providers who have large amounts of file-based data and need a solution that can reduce storage costs will find this to be an optimal solution for both their data and storage cost needs.

Richard Tatham, GM of cloud services at Sithabile Technology Services in South Africa stated that Cloudian and Komprise have given them a new way to manage customer data in a manner that delivers significant cost savings with no noticeable impact on performance or the customer experience. They've found this solution as the best way for their customers to reduce storage costs and maintain the performance they expect and need.

Cloudian provides high-availability, enterprise-class storage at 70 percent less than the costs of traditional NAS solutions. Furthermore, data migrated to Cloudian no longer consumes backup license costs, resulting in an overall backup cost reduction up to 60 percent.

"We are pleased to partner with Cloudian and provide customers a simple, frictionless way to adopt cost-efficient secondary storage without disrupting current users or applications. Our software provides the visibility and detailed analytics that help customers make informed decisions about which data can be non-disruptively migrated off expensive NAS environments and moves data transparently. Once transferred, the data can still be searched, accessed and modified as files. Users will never know the difference," said Krishna Subramanian, COO of Komprise.

To learn more about this solution, Cloudian and Komprise will hold a joint webinar this Thursday, June 1, at 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST). The webinar will detail a solution overview and the return-on-investment achieved by deferring costly NAS expansion projects.  To register for this live event, you can visit their link:
