Cloudian Announces New Support for Container-Based Apps

Cloudian, an object storage solution provider, has announced support for Container-based apps. The new product, Cloudian Kubernetes S3 Operator, is a self-service tool that allows developers to dynamically provision Cloudian HyperStore S3-compatible object storage. The new product extends Cloudian’s existing and growing support for cloud-native environments.

“Containers enable enterprises to develop new services more quickly, but traditional storage wasn’t designed for these modern workloads,” Sanjay Jagad, Cloudian senior director of products and solutions, commented in a press release. “So while other storage providers are pushing complex, management-heavy products based on legacy platforms, Cloudian delivers simplicity itself: the industry’s most compatible S3 API and a lightweight Kubernetes operator. Developers gain self-serve agility and application portability, while operations teams benefit from Cloudian’s exabyte scalability, hybrid cloud management and exceptional value.”

Cloudian Kubernetes S3 Operator is deployed on Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage Platform. It includes API driven management for fast provisioning. Other features include:

  • Storage provisioned and accessed directly by applications
  • Security includes Encryption, IAM, SAML, WORM, RBAC and certification via Common Criteria, FIPS, and SEC Rule 17a
  • Scalability from three nodes to an exabyte without interruption
  • Multi-site and multi-cloud support

Cloudian Kubernetes S3 Operator is available for no cost at GitHub. To learn more, watch a demo here.
